Fed up with throwing stuff out.

I have in my fridge:

Carrots
Brocolli
Rocket

I've got other stuff too but this needs to be used first! What can I make? I have the usual larder stuff.

Soup

Roast veg lasagne or risotto

I reckon almost anything can either be shoved in cheese sauce, then popped in the oven with a mix of breadcrumbs and cheese on the top to go crispy, or else roasted in the oven with a bit of oil and some tomatoes.

Probably not the rocket though... serve that on the side!

Carrot cake? (Less healthy alternative!)
Carrots make a lovely dry curry with peas and sometimes potatoes. www.manjulaskitchen.com/2010/11/25/gajar-matar-carrots-with-green-peas/. Nice with chapati and yoghurt.
Broccoli pasta dish? www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/pastawithpurplesprou_3417

I'd scrub the carrots and steam them whole (depending on how big they are and how long you've got ) when nearly done add the broc. with cuts made in the stalks and either just serve them in a nice bowl with olive oil and lemon juice salt and pepper dressing (put on when they're hot) then just throw the rocket over them.

if you have time you could put a white sauce on them instead (as AmumInScotland said) and or some cheese\breadcrumbs that could be grilled till melting and crunchy.

Cheese and broccoli quiche with roasted carrot and rocket salad?
