Here’s the recipe for those of you who don’t want to watch the whole video over and over again.
Mushroom and Leek Bake
Served 3ish – 25p per portion
5 leeks, trimmed & sliced (RIVERFORD)
250g mushrooms sliced (RIVERFORD)
1 clove garlic, crushed (8p)
100mL veg stock (1 tsp stock – 2p)
150mL cream (we used milk) (19p)
1tsp thyme (3p?)
30g grated parmesan (Mac only used 10g – 17p)
salt & pepper
served with 400g potatoes (20p)
Preheat the oven to 180C
Chop leeks and mushrooms, and mince garlic. Heat butter (oil) over medium heat and then add sliced leeks Gently fry 2-3 min, stirring often so they don’t brown Add mushrooms, salt, pepper and thyme and minced garlic.
Cook another 4 min.
Add chicken stock and cream (milk–cook a bit longer if using milk)
Stir and bring to the boil for 1 min.
Bake in the oven for 20min.
Take out and sprinkle the top with parmesan.
Return to oven for 5 min or until most liquid has reduced.
Breakfast: Mac – oatmeal (happy, Robin??) with jam – 17p, Megan – oatmeal with 20g raisins – 13p (I ran out of time for a cup of tea)
At work: Megan – 2 cups of tea – 8p, Mac – one cookie and one cup of tea – 8p
Dinner: 25p (it only really made three portions)
Megan 1.64 + 2 cookies + pistachios – 2.00
Mac 1.68 + 42g of pistachios for 2.00
Ok, I have a confession to make. I accepted two hot beverages today–paid for by other people. I’m a cheat.
Mac got cakes for free at work. Lucky. He had three mini muffins, two mini flapjacks and a mini caramel thing AND a satsuma. WHAT THE CRAPOLA?!? I guess I get loads of free cakes and cookies and stuff at meetings. But that’s not during the work day when I’m HUNGRY.
