    Roast lamb and veges. Easy really, chop all veges (capsicum, celery, onion, garlic, carrot, zucchini) in base of pan, marinated roast lamb from woollies ontop, bung in oven and cook for an hour, peel potatoes and sweet potato and cook in separate pan, easy peasy.

    will do, just boobin the babe..

    1 large onion diced
    1 small chilli finely chopped
    2 tbsp olive oil
    5 tsp curry powder
    Pinch cayenne pepper
    800g water*
    2 tbsp stock paste (or equal liquid stock using above water)
    Handful baby spinach
    400g rinsed red lentils
    2 tins drained chickpeas
    Plain yoghurt and coriander leaves for garnish

    This is a thermy recipe but I'll convert it because your so nice

    Fry off onion, chilli, curry powder and cayenne pepper in olive oil for 4 minutes over medium heat, add water/stock paste, lentils and chickpeas and cook for 16 min until lentils are tender, add in spinach towards end, serve with yoghurt and coriander. I'm making chippolatas (sp?) and salad to go with it

    *you will need to watch the water level as thermy recipes usually call for less water than conventional ones.

    I have never tried this but it is meant to be good as a quick meal, I'm considering putting diced potato and carrot into it as cooking it for a few more minutes.

    thanks yeah il most likely do something like that when I move back to Brisbane. also need to stock up to prepare myself for my 8 week prac where I won't have money to spend on groceries
