Looking in my vegie drawer to decide what to have for dinner I saw some flacid celery, wrinkley green capsicum and browning cauliflower. I didn’t feel like another stir fry to use up these vegies so I made them into a ‘creation’. My ‘creations’ are still very hit and miss, but I think I’m finally getting a feel of what will work and what will result in an inedible waste of time and ingredients. This ‘creation’ was a winner so I thought I’d share it so you too can avoid yet another boring stir fry in times like this.
Ingredients: (This obviously changes depending on the contents of your vegie drawer, but I think pretty much anything goes with this recipe).
1 Brown Onion Chopped
2 Cloves Garlic Crushed
1 Green Capsicum Chopped
1/4 Bunch Celery Chopped
1/2 Cauliflower Head Chopped
2 Potatoes Quartered
1/2 Cup Fat Free Natural Yoghurt
1/2 Cup Milk
1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese
1/4 Cup Tasty Cheese Grated
Method: (Also varies depending on ingredients but easily adaptable).
Boil Potatoes. Steam cauliflower. Fry chopped onion and garlic for 3 minutes. Add capsicum and celery and fry for another 3 minutes. Meanwhile, add yoghurt, milk and parmesan to a bowl and stir. Add mixture to fried vegies. Strain potatoes when they’re soft and lightly mash. Add cauliflower and mash in with potato mixture. Add vegies and milk mixture and mix in together. Add chopped ham. Place mixture into oven proof baking dish. Top with grated tasty cheese. Bake at 190 degrees (non fan forced) for 30 minutes. If you’re feeling super healthy, serve with some less flacid/browning vegies or salad. 🙂
