Mediterranean sausage, fennel, canellini bean and tomato cassoulet Category: Recipes

Whilst catching up on some blogs, I came across this recipe from Mostly Eating.  I made it on Saturday and it was delicious… though I couldnt get any fresh oregano so used fresh thyme (next time I want to use oregano though, I dont think the thyme was quite right) and I threw in a glass of white wine as Sophie suggested which made it more cassoulet-like.

I also have my eye on this summer spelt recipe from Mostly Eating – keep up the good work Sophie!

The National Day of Meh-e-co Category: Other Foodiness

Apologises for my bad accent there! But yes, apparently yesterday was the National day of Mexico (thanks for the tip Toast!). However we were a bit short of time & preparation yesterday as we had to have a big clean for friends of my mum & dad popping around for the first time since we moved in two years ago and I went for a big chop, my locks are now short, a bit layered and more versatile.

So the poor excuses over, for tea we had some tortilla chips served with a layer of bean salsa, a layer of tomato salsa and cheese – served with spring onion as the chilli I *thought* we had was not as edible as it once was. Served with sour cream, guacamole & refried beans.

For the main course we had fajitas – the filling was quorn mince, peppers and red onion, chopped tomatoes and a mexican seasoning. Again, served with sour cream, guacamole & refried beans.

We forgot the Corona too but made up for it with a very nicely chilled white wine.

A Weeks Menu Category: Recipes

Yesterday we did our weekly shop & for the first time in a while, nothing on the menu is copied from the previous week/s (which happens quite frequently). This week we have a vegetable chilli (serves 4, so thats two sittings), a spicy lentil bake, gridled chicken salad & some Linda McCartney mince pies & sausages & chips! We haven’t bought chips for well over a year either.

Last night I made the chilli & I am not a big fan of the stuff but Hubby quite likes it so this was really for him.

Ingredients (From Delicious magazine May 07)

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 300g frozen quorn (Tescos didn’t have any so I used a 350g box from the refrigerator section but its £1 more expensive!!)
  • 2 peppers, chopped fairly small
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons of lightly crush cumin seeds
  • 320g jar of tomato & chilli pasta sauce
  • 1 tine of kidney beans

How to Do It

  1. Heat oil & cook peppers for 5 minutes
  2. Add garlic & cumin seeds & quorn – cook for for 3/4mins
  3. Add kidney beans & sauce + a further 160g water – simmer for 20 mins
  4. Serve with rice

We also had the suggested sour cream & guacamole.

It was very easy & the cumin really made it for me. For once, I am looking forward to the second serving of this which is sitting in the fridge.
