It’s Friday night. The dishwasher doesn’t work. I’ve been up since 5.30am and its 7.55pm and I have the shopping to put away and dinner to cook. It’s been a long day at the end of a long week. We all have them.
In the past, I’d have reached for the phone or PC and ordered a delivery from a local take-away. Yes, I know that I still could, but thought I’d make something quick but healthy.
So what did I do?
I quickly cooked some potatoes with their skins on and cooled. Sliced into thick slices and oven grilled them on a Teflon sheet for about 30 mins at 190c hot air grilling. Perfect no fat sauté potatoes.
While the potatoes were cooking, I made some of the non-dairy cheese sauce. (See recipe and video previously blogged).
In the saucepan i cooked the potatoes in (remember the dishwasher is kaput) I shredded some spring greens (cabbage) and placed in the saucepan with half a cup of water. Clamped the lid on and cooked on high for 5 mins.
I then added a pack of cooked black beluga lentils to the cabbage and stirred in the cheese sauce and heated gently until the sauce thickened.
Serve sprinkled with some fake Parmesan (see previous post). alongside the sauté potatoes.
