Boston bean hotpot tonight - a bit like a bolognese but with baked beans and pasta in it. Tastes lovely when it's been slow cooked but just did it on the hob today. Delicious and my boys Hoover it up.

Lentil and bean cottage pie. Puy lentils, black eye beans, carrot and onion with parsnip, swede and potato mash on top. Probably a low carber's nightmare!

HeyMicky Mon 14-Jan-13 18:19:12

Sorry, putting DD to bed.

Spicy soup: I use chicken or fish stock, add some tamarind paste, Tom yum paste, lime juice, fish sauce, garlic (squeezy tube!) and chillies. Little bit of palm sugar if needed. All by eye, and to taste. Lemongrass if I have it. You could throw in some coriander if you wanted, although it is Satan's garnish.

(We have a Thai supermarket near us, but most supermarkets stock all of the above, and the pastes last for months.)

Boil it up, throw in prawns and/or chicken, then add bean sprouts, mushrooms, sliced peppers, mange tout, green beans, broccoli, baby sweetcorn, ribbons of carrot - whatever is in the veg bin. Add rice noodles (or supernoodles) at the end.
