Pinky the burgers were nice but amazing. They were a small bit bland but I may have under seasoned. The texture was good though and they held together v well so I'll probably make them again. I'll increase the amount of garlic and possibly add some ground cumin next time.

CaitAgusMadra Sat 06-Aug-16 19:13:08

Not amazing (crucial word missing there!)

Siriushack Sat 06-Aug-16 19:17:26

Nothing exciting here, I need some new ideas. Excited for new freezer being delivered next week so I can start batch cooking, I really need to get out more blush

Tonight-pizza and salad
Sunday- roast chicken, med veg, mini roast pots
Monday-chicken curry
Tuesday-spag Bol
Wednesday-hunters chicken
Thursday- jacket pots with whatever's around to go on top

V pleased with my pasta!

Roasted a load of quartered cherry tomatoes with red wine and balsamic vinegar.
Fried onion, garlic and green pepper.
Added lots of sliced red chilli, s&p, black olives to the onion mix.
Added the tomatoes and cooked it until the tomatoes went mushy, adding water to keep it a bit 'saucy'.
Loads of basil and Parmesan to serve.

Easy, cheap and really tasty.

CaitAgusMadra Sat 06-Aug-16 21:51:52

Sounds lovely Remus, I might steal this idea as my lovely PIL keep us well supplied with amazing home grown cherry tomatoes (lots of diff colours & shapes).

Update on the burgers: DH ate later than the rest of us and he loved them. He's not normally a big fan of veggie meals so they'll def be on the menu again soon

On beetroot burgers:

Delicious magazine had this recipe for them a few years ago, we tried it and they've been a staple in our house ever since. The dill goes really well with the beetroot. Can't find the recipe online to link to so here it is...

1 bunch of fresh dill
Handful of fresh parsley (optional)
175g beetroot
1 large carrot
60g oatmeal
2 eggs
1⁄2 small red onion
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp olive oil
.Cut the peel off the beetroot and blitz in a food processor or else grate by hand. Put it into a big brown bowl. Blitz the carrot, then onion and garlic, and herbs. Add into bowl each time. Weigh the oats and blitz, then stir in the eggs and seasoning. Leave to sit for 15mins if you have time.
.Put the oven on low. Gently heat the oil in a frying pan, then put dollops of the mix in, shape with a spatula and fry the burgers for 2-3mins on each side until just browned. Put on a baking tray and keep hot in the oven while cooking the rest.
They are honestly really good and worth a try if you're on the lookout for a decent veggie burger. We stuff our buns with lettuce, mayo, a fried egg, halloumi and avocado and whatever sauce is on hand.

Sorry, I copy pasted that and no idea what happened with all the formatting blush

While I'm here though (haven't done a meal plan yet) Mummy you need to sit me down and go through your week's food, it all sounds amazing!! Can I particularly bug you for more info on the piri piri halloumi and the veggie pho?

Mummyoftwo91 Sun 07-Aug-16 08:50:43

Pho http://www.loveandlemons.com/easy-vegetarian-pho/ I personally can't stand mushrooms though so I use lots of pak choi baby sweetcorn and other veg!

BoyFromTheBigBadCity Sun 07-Aug-16 15:10:59

Sunday: roast chickpeas with halloumi

Rest of the week: no plan. Loving sausage bake idea.

Does anyone do meal plans for one? I love batch cooking but don't have loads of freezer space.
