Recipe is from an old Sainsburys Magazine and has taken my fancy. It's basically fish, spinach and chopped eggs in a creamy white sauce, then bunged under the grill. I'm at a bit of a lot what to serve with it though - ds is not keen on mash, which I think is the obvious choice, and I don't want rice as I've already got it twice on this week's menu plan. Any ideas?
Mash was my instant thought, but if your son isn't keen, maybe sautéed potatoes, or baked wedges? Or a mash alternative, like root veg mash (carrot/swede/celeriac mix?) or soft-cooked polenta? I love polenta instead of mash.
The recipe sounds lovely by the way am googling similar ones! Thanks for the inspiration!
It's actually potatoes in general he's not too keen on - he does eat chips and potato gratin, though. The only child I've ever met who leaves roast potatoes!
For some reason, I'm shying away from polenta because I can't imagine it going with fish and white sauce - we have polenta quite regularly, but always with darker, meaty or tomatoey sauces.
I've never done a mash alternative <hangs head in mash-shame>.
I think I'm going to go with bulgar wheat as we all like it, it takes no time to cook and I have just about the right amount left in the box. And for future, I'm going to investigate mashing other veg and see if ds likes that!
I know what you mean thekitchenwitch I always have fallback don't have to think stuff, and then open the cupboard and go darn! At the moment, must remember to do puy lentils which I love, but the box is hidden by lots of pasta and rice packets
