Today I was cooking properly for the first time in months. It was something more than just throwing together pasta or eating a sandwich and ended up to be really nice even though I wasn’t sure what I wanted it to be.
I diced the following:
- Half a red onion
- A green bell pepper
- One courgette
- Three garlic cloves
- About 15 cherry tomatoes
I also shaved a carrot [I'm sure there's a better term for that!] and added it all in a pan to cook together for about ten minutes with some olive oil and the following dried herbs:
- Black pepper [not technically a herb though]
In the meantime I cooked maybe five new potatoes in slices in water with some parsley and a clove of garlic floating around.
I added spinach, some more herbs and some grated cheese to the vegetables before serving it.
In hindsight I wish I would have done the lasagne, but I’ve still got enough ingredients left over to do that tomorrow. It also needed some extra flavour, maybe with some added nuts.
It was delicious and took about 40 minutes of which most of the time was spent on cutting the vegetables.
