That's what I'm afraid of, but according to @MommaE it works, so I'm hopeful! Thick soups, stews, bolognese with veggies are all very good ideas! Tandoori is very English (unless you live in India of course), I wouldn't even know what tandoori tastes like! Is a tandoori marinade a vegetable dish on its own? Recipe welcome of course, preferably foolproof, as it probably needs ingredients I've never used. I'm also still puzzled by what exactly is considered a 'curry'. I know Thai green curry, but I also know curry can be a lot of things, I'm just not exactly sure what makes a curry a curry. My marinades, and lots of my other food, lean heavily on the Indonesian kitchen, just like the English cuisine uses many Indian flavours. Considering the shared seafaring history of our countries, it could have easily been the other way around. I'm not proud of my country's history but very thankful for the flavours it brought us. YES! Had a quick meal today, making up for the missed veggies of the last few days. It was inspired by @Goonergal 's freezer meal suggestion, although I only made a single portion. Fried onion, bell pepper, leek, mushrooms and garlic, added some tomato paste, paprika and a splash of white wine gone just off to drink but still fine to cook. Put on a plate, added grated cheese and Turkish sausage slices and microwaved when I felt like eating. Very happy I've finally had some 'real' food again!
