|Our soon-to-be dining room|
Holding that in mind, this is a brief post to showcase some of the simple meals I've been throwing together to use up produce. Whilst we can transport our kitchen ingredients down the road, the less to move the better!
Butter beans with mixed vegetables and pineapple, with spelt flour flat bread.
I liked this, but unlike the pineapple in my hot and sour stir fry, the pineapple seemed like a rogue ingredient instead of a star feature. However, the dish helped use up a tin of beans (I often use dried so tins can sit in the cupboard for a while), a tin of tomatoes, quite a few vegetables, and a good chunk of flour.
Frozen banana soft serve with cocoa nibs and Choc Shot chocolate sauce.
The cocoa nibs and chocolate sauce don't really need using up, but frozen bananas are not ideal for transporting and this took 2 large ones and produced a delicious dessert.
Kale, sweet corn and sweet potato on toast with almond butter.
This dish is self explanatory really. I loved the bright colours and flavours.
After enjoying cocoa nibs and chocolate sauce in frozen banana ice cream, I've also added them to yoghurt and on top of strawberries. On other occasions I've had raisins in weetabix and all manner of vegetables in jacket potatoes. And, I suspect there will be more strange combinations before the week is out...
Please tell me - how do you get through moves? Any last minute tips?!
