I'm still making full use of everything we have as this string of photos will show.
I love making follow on meals and multiple meals out of one set of ingredients so yesterday I set too and made us Vegetable Stew, Vegetable Soup and Vegetable Pasties.
I'll mostly let the photos tell the tale.
Peelings and trimmings in one pan with an additional onion, and chopped up vegetables in the other.
Stock added to both.
Brought to the boil and then left to simmer away until cooked, peas were added to the stew for a pop of colour and extra goodness.
A couple of ladles full of the stew for my lunch.
The peelings pan whizzed up and turned into a lovely pan of soup.
Using a slotted spoon I lifted out a dish of the vegetables from the other pan, then everything that was left was whizzed up with my stick blender into a pan full of soup. This was then portioned out with some being in the fridge for lunch for us both tomorrow and the rest was put into the freezer.
The drained vegetables once cold were wrapped in a sheet of ready made shortcrust pastry,and turned into pasties.
Oooh ... you know me I love things in pastry :-)
One served with Bisto gravy for tea.
And the other left to cool on the tray ready for the freezer.
The cupboards and fridge might be emptying but the freezer is gradually getting fuller and fuller, oh well it will all get eaten in the end.
