Beef, spinach and red lentil curry

If anyone's wondering what kind of day today is, it's the kind of day where I put a pot on to boil for pasta, and come back five minutes later to find the pot's hob cold and the one under the chopping board has melted the chopping board and a plastic container-lid.

Meanwhile, a Good Recipe from last weekend. Adapted from Campion & Curtis' In The Kitchen.

Spinach Daal with Spiced Eggplant

This is really a mash-up of two recipes, with the ultimate aim of providing Sufficient Nutrients in a single meal. The first is Jack Monroe's Spinach & lentil daal, from their second book; the second recipe is the Epicurious Indian spiced eggplant recipe. Both have been customised by me, for me.

White bean and fennel soup

The ancestor recipe for this is Jack Monroe's ribollita (from their second book), but I've got lazy with it, and it's drifted back in the direction of minestrone.

Beef and bacon stew aux Jack

If you're wondering why the slew of recipe posts, I'm stacking the [tumblr.com profile] speculumannorum queue again, and it gets Sunday Recipe Posts. I'm duplicating them here because they're easier for *me* to find here.

This is a slow-cookerised adaptation of Jack Monroe's Bolognon, which was itself a recipe which couldn't decide if it wanted to be bolognaise or bourguignon. I've recently realised that the main barrier between me and slow-cookery is not having the brain in the mornings to do food prep, whereas I have the brain in the evenings *but only after i've eaten a foods already*. Cunning strategy: the browning meat stage done the night before!

Mum's Banana Hotcakes

(I've tried a few times this year to reverse-engineer this recipe from a basic pancake, and failed)

Makes 24

3 eggs
2 tsp honey
1/2 cup water
3 mashed bananas
1/4 cup SR flour
Dash extra baking soda
2 tbsp melted butter

Beat eggs, honey and water together. Mix in bananas, stir in flour and mix until blended. Cook as for regular pancakes.

Lazy Hoi Sin Noodles

[personal profile] kayloulee made this for me when I turned up on short notice in Aus for a funeral in 2015. It is a good food.

The source recipe is this tasty and authentic Pan-Fried Honey Hoi Sin Noodle recipe at the Woks of Life. Some of the adulterations are K’s work, some are mine.

This makes about 5 servings. It's sort of like vegetarian harira, which means I'm going to be disappointed in the way the frozen portions turn out, I suspect.

ED: NOW WITH ACTUALLY MENTIONING THE LEMONS.

So I accidentally tipped WAY TOO MUCH rosemary into the first stage of this recipe and the result was amazing.
