Grow it, Eat it

Yesterday's lunch.


Our potatoes were spoilt by wire worm so when peeling and sorting out we end up with lots of bits of potatoes  which I dice and par boil. I then put some oil and spices in a deep frying pan (turmeric, cumin, paprika, coriander) put in some garlic and onion, diced potatoes, any left over courgettes, peppers and tomatoes. In fact any bits left over! and some stock to just cover. In a few minutes you have a nice dish. If I have it I sometimes put in panacetta or bacon as an extra treat.

For pudding we have a lot of autumn raspberries still producing the odd berry. They go in a dish with a couple of spoons of granola and Greek yougart.

Does not cost a lot, except the kitchen always looks like a tornado hit it after all the preparation!

  2. Your lunch looks great. I like cubed potatoes. We had a similar problem with our potatoes, but managed to still make wedges from them or use them for mash. It was more a problem with the later varieties, so we're going to sow more early ones next year.

    1. Agree. We are certainly going for earlies next year and perhaps some in pots/bags instead of ground. We hear a winter green covering crop of mustard helps?

    I think everyone's kitchen looks like a disaster area when processing food from the garden. Mine sure does.

    God bless.
