I mske up stuff all the time.
Wedgey bake is pretty popular.
My cinnamon scrolls
I was trying to make something to fill my daughter up a few months ago as I thought hunger was waking her at night. So I sautéed garlic and onion in olive oil, tossed some brown rice and red lentils in to toast a tiny bit then added a can of tomatoes, some low-salt veg stock, whatever veg I had on hand and curry powder, and let it cook until the rice was cooked and the liquid had been absorbed. It was so tummy, I've made it a few times now and I always eat it for lunch the next day!
Oh I also made up a chests potato bake for when I don't have time to make an actual potato bake. I slice potatoes and boil them, then in the meantime sautée onion, garlic and bacon, add cream. Cook until it reduces a bit, then drain and put the potatoes in a baking dish and top with the cream sauce, then top with grated cheese. Cook until the cheese is melted. It has all the flavour of potato bake but takes heaps less time!
This is a hefty, full on meal that is so yum but due to fat and carb content is only cooked occasionally. My family loves this..
I chop up 3 chorizos and 500g of bacon and fry until the chorizos start bleeding their oil out, add a pack of half cooked risoni, a huge handful of whole basil leaves and cook for a few mins then add 2 jars of passata. Transfer into baking dish and sprinkle parmesan on top, bake for around 20 mins then let it sit for 15 mins in warm oven. Serve with salad.
I make a fair few dishes made up. We call it "fridge surprise". It's whatever I can throw together with what's in the fridge.
Love this thread, lots of creativity happening!
Here's mine, it's Roast Veggie's with Pearl couscous (also known as Israeli couscous). It's my go to when running low on food supplies.
Chop and roast whatever veg you have available in bite sized pieces. Cook Pearl couscous. Mix couscous with roast veggies and add; a drizzle of honey, a bit of lemon juice and whatever herbs you have (I usually add parsley, mint and cumin). Serve with a dollop of natural Greek yoghurt, delish.
Warm chicken salad is another family favorite.
Chcken breast cut and coated in a special herb mix. Cut up potato in another herb mix roast both. Diced onion and bacon fried than lettuce and tomato with lots of ranch dressing.
This what I am going to make for dinner tonight if I get my car back today.
