Tonight's gut busting meal :o)

You'll be getting sick of seeing my cooking, especially as I keep saying I DON'T DO RECIPE'S, ha ha. Well I don't, mine are concoctions and here's another. I said I would do something with chick peas, onions, and rice, here it is, or should I say here it was. All gone now and it was delicious.

Chop up three small onions and fry in olive oil in a pan. Add a handfull of sultanas, and a chopped up apple. Add half a tin of chickpeas 20p, a shake of garlic granules 50p a jar, a spoon of cheap powdered curry sauce mix, a shake of Mexican Taco Spice Mix, got loads of packets of this left over from the Enchelada kits. Splash in some fruit juice, whatever you have, cook on low heat till onions are soft. Serve with wholegrain rice. How much, oh I dunno, about 50p at a guess.

I can honestly say I much prefer this type of meal than a slap up nosh in a restaurant. If you ask for vegetarian when you are out, they never have anything imaginative on the menu, same old same old, and it costs almost as much as a meat meal. You really can't beat your own gut busting meals, at least I know what's in my cooking, even though it may be a made up recipe.

  1. That looks tastey. Do you use fresh fruit juice? I have never cooked with it like that.

  5. Yum! My sort of food, I am a concocter too. Tonight I had some LInda McCartney sausages, few leaves of cabbage, celery, red pepper, peas, onions, stir fried them and added an Aldi stir fry mix to make it go a little further, found a few noodles left over in the fridge and, Bob's your uncle and very delicious it was too. Husband like it (well he ate it) knows better than complain!

  6. Looks very tasty!

    We had something very similar, only I had a couple of Quorn fillets in mine, I found them lurking at the back of the freezer covered in ice, they warmed up nicely :-)

    My Lovely Hubby had 4 of our very own sausages (slightly over browned by me but (like Campfires' husband) he didn't complain) in his.

  8. Onions are the key to this sort of food followed by the spices and luckily both keep for a really long time. Chick peas are loaded with good stuff including fiber. Nice and hot and healthy.

  9. Looks very tasty, Ilona, and just what you need on a chilly, Winter's day too. The chickpeas are good too, plenty fibre in them to keep you going. I use them in a curry recipe I have instead of chicken, and it's a winner, the kids love it. All the best, Christy x
