Left-over Vegetable Menu

Carrots and Greens, Ferry Building Farmer's Market, San Francisco, California, USA Photographic Print


This week I was in the regional centre, and we needed something for tea, so I was able to choose pork mince. There is no meat to speak of in our Foodwork catalogue and I don't know what is over there except kabana and strassburg, so I thought I'd try those to save looking.

Tuesday ~ Cheesey Mac with Roasted Broccoli (recipe has a variation for chorizo)
Wednesday ~ Pork Chow Mein
Thursday ~ Spinach & Feta Bolognaise
Friday ~ Savoury Omelette (uses crab meat, canned)
Saturday ~ Speedy Mince & Noodle Stir Fry baby corn?
Sunday ~ Tuna Frittata with Fennel Salad
Monday ~ Strassberg Lasagne will have to swap strassberg gone
Tuesday ~ boc choy & Sausages Sausage Stir Fry
Wednesday ~ Chilli Sweet Potato & Beans with Polenta
Thursday ~ Chilli Bean Nachos
Friday ~ Middle-eastern Lentil & Root Vegetable Ragout
Saturday ~ Spinach Impossible Pie
Sunday ~ Bacon & Beef Burger with Dijonnaise
Monday ~ Versatile Paella (using kabana)

Success from last week:
Barley & Red Lentil Pilaf
BBQ Chicken with Greek Salad (absolutely gorgeous)

Not so happy with from last week:
Bacon and Spinach Macaroni Cheese

Swaps last week:
the swaps are using the ingredients we already had just swapping recipes, usually to avoid meat or extra expense
Potato & Asparagus Salad
Curried Pumpkin & Lentils
Broad Bean & Silverbeet Soup
Beef & Chorizo Nachos (to use up chorizo) tried this, it was excellent!
Pasta with Pumpkin, Tomato & Butter Beans

Interesting recipes:

Chorizo, Zucchini & Feta Rigatoni
Broad Bean & Chorizo Risotto
Chorizo & Borlotti Bean Soup (uses fennel)
Chorizo, Tomato and Feta Tortilla Pizzas

I have two packets of fenugreek seeds so trying this recipe:

Spinach & Pumpkin Curry
