The Shepherd’s Nuts

Standard

Anxious Dad created an absolute masterpiece of a nut roast for Christmas Eve dinner (chestnuts! cheese! artistic cabbage leaf wrapping!).  I returned to Anxious Towers with a decent hunk of the remains, plus a handful of roast chestnuts.  My vegetarian turkey roll and mince-pie lust* having been satiated over the Xmas period, I was in the mood for something comforting and hot, and this shepherd’s pie hit the spot whilst handily using up the leftovers.  I bought the parsnip and carrot fresh, but those with leftover veg, or leftover cheese from a festive cheeseboard, might find a home for them in the recipe as well…..

*A mince-pie and a double vodka with coke is a perfectly acceptable Xmas breakfast, I’ll have you know.  As is another mince-pie.

Veggies in parmesan sauce
Now to be fair to Yotam Ottolenghi, I think I’d quite enjoy eating at his restaurants Nopi or Ottolenghi.  However,  his recipes as published in the media are well complicated, and I don’t have any more space in my cupboards for any more exotic ingredients.  So below is a simplified version of one published recently, but still tasty and versatile, and a good way to get your five a day into you!
(Regrettably no photo until I locate my camera USB cable 😦   ) UPDATE:foounndd ittt!

Roast Cabbage & Sprouts with Parmesan & Smoked Paprika Sauce

Standard

Radio is blaring out Motorhead’s version of Sympathy for the Devil, and I am contemplating the sweetheart cabbage, lying forlornly in the wok wot does double duty as a vegetable bowl.  Nigel Slater to the rescue!  This was tasty and left an decent amount of parmesan sauce that I am scheming how to reuse tomorrow night…..*

Sweet Potato, Chickpea and Mushroom Roast

Standard

Six-day work weeks.  Gotta love ’em…pphhzzarrghhhh *collapses*.  However the days are getting longer and sunnier, and it’s nice to sense the faint “Beep!…..whirrrrrrrrrr…” that is Nature rebooting itself for another Spring.

Managed to get a full weekend off, and spent most of it cooking furiously in the manner of a devoted foodie who has been living off quick and easy noodle stirfries for the past month.  The Grauniad newspaper rose to the challenge with several delicious vegetable/nut roasts, and first up is my version of a chickpea and vegetable roast….

Rice Noodle & Vegetable Bake

Standard

A good, cheap 3-days-until-payday bake, using store cupboard staples (particularly relevant for January, the Official Month of 3-Days Till Payday).  Nothing too sophisticated but moreish and goes down well with a spot of ketchup!

E=Spicy MBubbleC & 2Squeak

Standard

As mentioned in the last post, you should have a certain amount of spicy potato mash left over from the stuffed peppers recipe.  By an amazing cosmic coincidence I had some sprouts, 1/3 of a sweetheart cabbage, and a few slices of vegetarian bacon lying around as well.  Onion and garlic are a given in this household, like the kitchen sink, an eclectic music collection, and the large number of 1950s classic sci-fi novels from the Tangleton British Heart Foundation charity shop lying around….*
