How many meals can I make from one pot? Lots of broccoli, half an eggplant, some carrots, onions and garlic, sauteed and then mixed with condensed tomato soup, BBQ sauce, and spices. On Friday night, It served as the base for burritos. This picture is muy blurry, but there were grilled strips of red capsicum and zucchini, the tomato-veggie mix, guacamole, and some chopped cucumber and tomato.
Saturday night the leftover veggies were mixed with some lentils. I added a bit of extra tomato paste, and some more BBQ sauce, and served it over 4-grain buns. Voila--sloppy joes! The presentation is courtesy of Andy. Green coral lettuce makes a plate look really pretty!
Last night (Monday) we were stumped for dinner. We had two bunches of asparagus that we wanted to use, and we felt like something from the oven, to warm the house up. So we mixed the leftover sloppy joe filling with a tin of refried beans, and layered it between tortillas. I roasted the asparagus with olive oil, salt, pepper, and lemon-myrtle. We also baked up some potato wedges and a bit of garlic bread (loaded with parsley) which we had frozen a few weeks ago.
Not pictured is the dipping sauce I made for the asparagus. A bit of soy mayo, marked down to $1.50 at Cole's the other day (from $5!), mixed with lemon-myrtle, Tasmanian pepper leaf, a squeeze of lemon juice and some salt and pepper. It was really nice!
