My cheapest ever recipe

We made this in Flowerdale when we lived there because you needed no money really to make it, or so it seemed. It saved as a few times. We were renting and also paying off a mortgage in our hometown at the same time. The recipe comes from a newer version of Cookery The Australian Way, a home economics text book. There is a lovely vegetarian section in that book (6th edition).

Spicy Lentil Noodles

Serves 4

2 teaspoons (10ml) oil
1 onion (125g) finely chopped
425g can tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup (100g) brown lentils
1 tablespoon (20ml) sweet chilli sauce
1 teaspoon (5ml) Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons tomato paste
Instant noodles (2 minute)
2 tablespoon grated cheese
pinch sugar
2 chicken stock cubes

Heat oil in saucepan. Add onion and saute until soft. Add tomatoes, lentils, sauces and tomato paste, stock cubes and sugar.

Bring to the boil and simmer gently for 30 minutes until lentils are tender. Cook noodles, drain.

Add noodles to lentil mixture and mix gently. Serve hot, sprinkled with grated cheese.
