I love sweetcorn fritters so much.

Just done ours. We're having (in whatever order sell-by dates on stuff turns out to be)

- paneer butter masala from fresh India - it's gorgeous so we're having it for the second time in about 9 days

- veggie burrittos with black beans, sweet potato and sweetcorn and served with mango salsa

- Veggie haggis with tatties and neeps and savoy cabbage

- Veggie sausage, chips, egg and peas (lazy dinner)

- something else which I have currently forgotten (or maybe sweetcorn fritters now I've been reminded how much I love them)

wow these all look so interesting. I wouldn't know were to start with severl of the OPs meals.
I am very boring cook, shepherd's pie, spag bol, etc, with about 4 more interesting dishes, and I would love to try new things.
I meal plan, and stick to it, but my nightmare moment each week is sitting down with the blank piece of paper going 'what shall we have this week?'

How about posting the recipes for some of these?
I would love to know how to make:
Thai sweetcorn fritters and mango salsa
black bean and sweet potato burgers
how do you do your roast veg lasagne
how do you make your jacket potato spicy?

What is kichadi
and how do you make these cualiflower steaks?

LauraMipsum Mon 23-Jan-17 12:41:25

Cauliflower "steaks" - boil a pan of water (with some veg stock if wanted) and place the cauli in whole. Poach for 5 minutes until softening but not soft - you want to be able to slice it without the florets breaking away. Slice it into slices about an inch thick. Bake for 35 - 40 minutes.

It is nothing like a steak grin but does go well with chips and sauce.


steppemum Mon 23-Jan-17 12:57:35

Bake in the oven? Doesn't it dry out?

Oh kichadi looks nice - for me, not sure my kids will go for it, although they all like jollof rice

Mummyoftwo91 Mon 23-Jan-17 16:26:11

To make the jacket potato spicy I rub the outside with olive oil, salt, cayenne pepper and paprika,

Sweetcorn recipes is this one here

Burger recipe is here

And to make the veg lasagne, I roast off peppers, onions, aubergine and courgette and tomatoes then add home made tomato sauce that I make in batches and freeze then just layer up lasagne as usual, I like to rip up chunks of mozzarella to put in between the layers because I'm greedy 😁

steppemum Mon 23-Jan-17 16:58:58
