Work. Shopping for a camping trip. Remembering last minute to vote in the European elections (a difficult choice between the mendacious, shallow, grasping bastards that constitute the main parties, and 17 different racist, foaming-at-the-mouth micro-parties that have sprung up like toadstools after a rain of pure urine).
Finally crawled home, and if that description above hasn’t put you off your food, I have a nice supper recipe for you…..
Half a red pepper, sliced thinly widthways One flat mushroom, likewise Half a small red onion, chopped One garlic clove, chopped Tin tomatoes Tomato puree One egg Olive oil Cumin, turmeric, chilli powder, paprika
Heat olive oil in a wok and fry the red onion gently till golden.
Add the garlic and red pepper, fry for a minute or two.
Add the spices and puree, mix well.
Then add the mushrooms, tomatoes, salt and pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes, uncovered.
Make a hollow in the middle of the tomato mix, crack an egg into it.
Cover the wok and leave for 5 minutes to poach.
Serve – suggestions include feta or yogurt. I think naan bread would go also well.
