I think we should fire this thread up again! I've made the cocoa balls, marshmallow slice and also the zucchini and veg slice/quiche.
An easy recipe that we make regularly that is quite cheap and always lasts for a whole dinner and lunches is sumur (soomoor) or vermicelli chicken. We always have soy, ginger, garlic, and Chinese mushroom. A tin of bamboo shoot is about 80cents and chicken wings are usually about $5 a kilo. Vermicelli is usually about $2. Very cheap, very yummy and goes a long way.
1 pkt chicken wings cut up
1 pkt vermicelli
On a med heat cook garlic and ginger until fragrant. Add chicken and cook until a little browned all over.
Once browned, add tin of bamboo shoots and sliced Chinese mushrooms (that have been presoaked). Stir them through, then add about 1/4 cup each of light and dark soy. Mix thoroughly and leave to simmer on low until chicken is completely cooked.
Stir through presoaked vermicelli and then turn of heat and leave for about 10 mins. Serve over rice. Yummmmmmm.
