[bob cooks] Saturday dinner: beef, borlotti beans, sweetcorn, tomatoes, linguine
bob made dinner tonight; a sort of Bolognese-like sauce with minced beef, borlotti beans, sweetcorn, and canned tomatoes. I did the chopping prep: onions, carrots, garlic. Served with linguine.
[bob cooks] Saturday dinner: Sausages, beans, potatoes, courgettes, multiple forms of garlic
Pork sausages cooked in the oven, boiled new potatoes with mint, courgettes and garlic scapes fried up together in butter.
Borlotti bean purée was my addition; I drained and rinsed a can of borlotti beans, then simmered them in water with diced carrot, sliced leek, and thickly-sliced garlic until the vegetables were cooked. I drained this (saving the liquid to use in soup or something) and puréed it with a drizzle of olive oil, then seasoned with salt. It wasn’t quite savoury or garlicky enough, so I added garlic purée (from a tube) and some Touch of Taste vegetable stock. I’ll make this again.
We had some horseradish mustard with it too, also from the market. bob had Branston pickle, which he claims is a vegetable.
