Improved macaroni cheese (serves 2)

4 oz small macaroni
100 g cheese grated
1 leek sliced
1 tsp dijon mustard
1 pinch asafoetida
1/4 tsp chilli powder
1 lvl tbsp plain flour
Milk as required

Boil the macaroni 8 mins and set aside.
Boil the sliced leek in a microwave with 1 tbsp water for 3-4 mins.
Make a white sauce in a deepish and large frying pan with the other ingredients and add also the boiling water from the leeks (vit C). Make the sauce fairly runny as later processes will thicken it. Add shredded cheese at the end and adjust runniness. Stir in the leeks. Add the pasta, stirring as little as possible so the carb doesn't thicken the sauce, turn off heat but let warm through. Serve.

That sounds good Steve. Do you add the asafoetida to promote digestion?

I find the little pinch somehow makes a more rich cheesy flavour - not so much you notice it if you didn’t cook it yourself. Alternatively, leave it out or top with a bit of parmesan. It’ so good my wife requested it for her birthday meal :)

Waiting for fresh veg delivery, so I found this to match the storecupboard: quinoa with black beans, sweetcorn and cumin.

I make something very similar Steve:

Mexican quinoa casserole – serves 4

150g uncooked quinoa
2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 can black beans
1 large can sweetcorn
1 can chopped tomatoes
1 onion, diced
100g cheese, grated
250ml water
Preheat oven to 180C. Line an 8-inch pan with parchment paper, and set aside. Drain the beans and corn. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients until well-mixed. Spread into the prepared pan, and bake on the centre rack 28 minutes. Without opening the oven door even a little, turn off the heat and let the casserole sit in the closed oven for an additional 25 minutes. Remove, and serve. The casserole will firm up more overnight as well – store leftovers covered in the fridge for 3-4 days.

Yeah, mine was nourishing but a bit plain. I like the idea of added tomatoes, and cheese will add some fat, which there wasn't much of in mine.

My (non gf meat eating) husband really likes it, the reheated leftovers are even nicer.

I have a similar one with rice WL and a chickpea curry and rice bake. I like mix it all together and bung it in the oven recipes.

Got something to say?
