I'm copying [personal profile] miss_s_b and revisiting an old challenge because I made this a couple of weeks ago (been meaning to post it here for ages) and my veg-phobic husband declared that it was "the best chickpea/lentil thing I've ever had"!

It's pretty simple and was inspired by the lack of fresh veg in my fridge at the end of the week.

Serves 2

1 tsp oil
1 onion, finely chopped
2-3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp finely chopped ginger
1 large carrot, diced
1 heaped tsp ground cumin
1 tsp turmeric
a pinch of dried chilli flakes
100g split red lentils
500ml vegetable stock
1 400g can chickpeas, drained
a small bunch of coriander, chopped (I used frozen chopped coriander)

Heat the oil gently in a pan and cook the onion, garlic and carrot over a low-medium heat for 5-10 minutes, until golden and starting to soften. Add the ginger and spices, stir well and cook for another minute or two. Add the lentils and vegetable stock. Bring to the boil, then turn down to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Add the chickpeas and cook for another 5 - 10 minutes depending on how soft you like your lentils. Stir in the coriander and serve with rice.

Challenge #5: Eggs: Egg Fried Rice

Some rice
Some vegetables (chopped)
Some nuts
Some eggs (beaten)
Peanut oil, soy sauce, coriander.

  1. If the rice is already cooked (e.g. because it is from Last Night's Chinese Takeway) go to step 2. Otherwise, cook the rice
  2. Heat a large dollop of peanut oil in the largest frying pan you have. Add the cooked rice and stir-fry it
  3. Add the vegetables and nuts, and stir through the rice until cooked.
  4. Make a well in the middle of the rice, right through to the frying pan bottom. Pour in the beaten eggs and scramble them until scrambled. Then stir into the rest of the rice.
  5. Add soy sauce and coriander.
  6. Eat.

I suspect all of these were about as Italian as a fourth generation New Yorker, but like that fourth generation New Yorker I choose to call them Italian anyway ;) The meal consisted of: warm bruscetta with tomatoes, basil and cheese; followed by vegetarian spag bol; followed by Italian-style baked fruit and ice cream.

I just et all that lot, and am fit to asplode, so if there are typos and/or some of this doesn't make sense, blame the food.
