What are you cooking/eating tonight??

Fri Jan 23, 2009 3:46 pm

Following on from the obvious success of the "what are you currently listening to?" thread, I thought I'd start a similar one for the foodies and sybarites among us.... After all, Fish sounds like a bit of a food fan and amateur chef himself - so we are in good company in more ways than one!! :drinks:

Princess o the Night and I will be having pan-seared venison steaks ,accompanied by onions baked in cream and parmesan, and a redcurrant, juniper and port sauce. :ok: :girl_fish:

Just in case anyone was interested!!

Today I will mostly be eating: Chichen breast marinated in olive oil, garlic with pepper and some soy sauce to be served alongside roast cherry tomatoes, courgettes, peppers, broccoli and maybe boiled potatoes, but I don't know about that yet. It's quick (well apart from the chicken breast which marinates over night), tasty and healthy! What more could you want?!

Oh any healthy, quick and most importantly cheap recipes that anyone minds sharing with a student, would be much appreciated! :D

Sounds great Ed! I'n mot much of a one for "recipes" really, I just kind of go on "feel" for ingredients - but I'll have a think and stick some ideas up over the weekend! :)

As a simple alternative to your chicken marinade, just to vary things a little, you could mix the olive oil and garlic with some lemon juice and thyme.... Goes great with buttered pasta or veg of your choice...

BTW, the creamy-cheesey onions are really quick, cheap and easy. The only expensive ingrediant is a tub of double cream... I nicked it from Nigel Slater! ;) The idea that is, not the cream!! :lol:

Grind the red chilies, green chilies, cumin seeds, garam masala, ginger, garlic, grated coconut and tomatoes together into a smooth paste.
Heat the oil in a pan and fry the asafoetida for approx 20 secs then add the onions and gently fry for about 8 mins until golden.
