This is a really thick comforting lentil and tomato soup with a bit of added interest. Great way to use up the veg left in the fridge at the end of the week. The tomatoes can be soft and not the freshest but need to be tasty.
My mint has gone crazy this year so am trying to save some for the winter months, this was a mixture of several recipes plus a few bits of my own and it is DELICIOUS, even DH who hardly ever comments asked me to make more! I put only a hint of chilli in but feel free to add more if that is to your taste. This would be great with a hot curry I think. This Jelly will be a very dark green colour, just from the mint.
An easy, velvety soup with complex delicious spice tastes, would make a wonderful start to a dinner party or a great lunch. Got this off the web ages ago and can't remember the name of the site. May need more lemon juice if the potatoes and carrots are really sweet so taste at the end, and I used more spices as I like a deeper flavour.
Meltingly tender lamb on a bed of onions, potatoes and garlic with preserved lemons and greek seasoning. Not a pretty dish but really wonderful to come home to on a wet cold day, the smell is just divine. A crisp green salad, or greek, a big glass of red wine, cozy slippers - nothing else needed!! Please use floury potatoes not waxy and feel free to use more lemon or less depending on your taste but it will mellow and blend I promise!
I need to lose weight and I thought that, come on girls, if we can't come up with delicious, low fat, low cal food then who can? I made this last night and my slender DH declared it my best chicken recipe ever - not sure if I'm pleased about that!!! Please try it, packed with flavour and goodness and even yummy.
When I ran my own Pub/Restaurant this was the most asked for recipe, I never did share it with my customers but I will share it with you. Feel free to use fresh apricots if you wish or fresh peaches are as good, this is not a true, authentic curry but it is very tasty and wonderful cold the next day. PLEASE buy best curry powder you can afford or make your own.
