ingredients for a storecupboard dinner

A storecupboard meal to save you.  On realising that I am 2 ounces short of enough risotto rice to make the planned (and I might add for a number of days…plenty of time to check the jar of risotto rice and buy more) Pea, Mint and Mascarpone Risotto, I had a mild panic and was then saved by a couple of items that have been lounging in the fridge since Christmas.  I like nights like these, when plans go to pot, but in turn make way for a creative meal to be cobbled together. 

Tonight’s meal has been cobbled from: potatoes (delicious golden fleshed potatoes, ashamedly I admit from the supermarket, but grown in Hertfordshire), an onion, chorizo sausage (the cooking type, not the salami), green olives (remnants of the edible Christmas gifts), and a lump of hard Spanish cheese (brought back from Madrid by my dad).

Chop up the potatoes and parboil.  Slice the onion and fry in an ovenproof dish on a medium heat.  Add some sliced chorizo.  And some finely chopped garlic.  A sprinkle of dried herbs.  Ground black pepper.

Add the drained potatoes.  Stir well.  Add half a tin of tomatoes and 200ml of chicken stock (from a cube).  Bung in the oven (180°C).

20 minutes later, remove from the oven.  Sprinkle over the green olives.  Grate on some cheese.  Bung it back in the oven for a further 5-10 minutes until the cheese is all gooey and golden.  Yum.

My Latest Instagram Snaps

It might be autumn but Tilly still loves a homemade ice lolly after her tea, so I cooked the blackberries we picked in coconut oil with some fresh figs and elderberries, then blitzed it up and pushed it through a fine sieve to remove the seeds. I mixed in coconut milk (made from coconut cream and water) and popped them into my lolly moulds. This mixture tasted delicious, like a fancy blackberry crumble, autumn in an ice lolly :) #wapf Little fingers checking out the corn we picked earlier. Plus an organic minute steak, buttery mash, and a mug of fresh peas from the farm shop. Only ate the steak :P We also picked a few ears of corn for our tea - I showed her how to pull back the husks and poke a nail into a kernel to check if they were good.
