Anyway, coming back on topic, these are the ingredients I have:
Wholemeal Spaghetti [2 portions]
Wholemeal Rice [500g]
Bread Rolls x 6
Oats [2 handfuls]
Veg, Fruit & Seeds
Red Onion x 3
White Onion x 1
Garlic [2 Bulbs]
Lea & Perrins
Oxo Chicken Cubes
Knorr Veg Cubes
Herbs & Spices
Colmans Season & Shake [various] - Just contains seasoning
White Sauce Mix
Any suggestions anybody?
In a large pot, cook spaghetti al dente.
In a large skillet, saute 1/2 chopped onion and a few cloves of garlic in oil or butter. Add Oxo chicken cubes diluted in hot water, and heat. Add basil and/or mixed herbs, then toss in pasta, and mix well. Serve with grated cheese, if you have any on hand.
Saute garlic and/or onions as a base, optional. Cook rice in water or diluted chicken or vegetable cubes, and add a little powdered ginger to the liquid while cooking (plus garlic powder if not using the sauteed fresh garlic). Add soy sauce to taste.
*OR* add curry powder to the liquid while cooking the rice. Heat the Korma Paste, then mix into the rice.
