A recipe for a filling main meal, made very quickly for
very little cost.:
(An all-purpose stomach filler with special nutritional value, health-giving
properties, graduated energy release, recommended to form part of a balanced
diet to achieve and stabilise optimum body weight, enhance immune system,
|| A generous
handful of florets per person
||To match Broccoli
|| A handful
of small or sliced
|| 2 Medium or
1 Large per person. Leave skins on.
Herbs and Herbes de Provence
Pepper Cayenne Nutmeg
Ketchup (essential) Worcester (optional)
|| Flora Pro-active
or Benecol (essential)
microwave cooking only)
Make sure you have all the above and a Pyrex bowl available and to hand.
In a Pyrex bowl of suitable size for the number planned, place the vegetable
florets, making sure they are not too large for later mixing in the bowl.
Sprinkle a tablespoon of water over them and add generous sprinklings of herbs
as layers build up.
Slice the (washed) potatoes in ¼ inch max slices. Cut large slices
in half. Add these in layers sprinkling with herbs and spices.
Cover with cling-film and microwave on 'high' for 10 minutes for 1 person,
18 for 2 persons, 24 for 3 persons or until contents have subsided an inch,
indicating vegetables softened under weight of potatoes, and herbs are browned.
Remove bowl from Microwave oven using gloves. Remove cling-film carefully
to avoid being scalded by steam and drain off any excess water (this is a
tricky operation, as scalding steam will rise out of bowl and contents will
fall out if not restrained. Use a colander if available and return to bowl
for next stage).
Add a very generous amount (two heaped table spoons per person) of Flora
Pro-active (or Benecol if unavailable) and mix like a salad. Add a massive
dose of good tomato ketchup; continue to mix adding pepper and salt to taste.
Your Vegetable Scrummage is ready to eat. It is ideal as a midday or evening
main course. You may consume as much as you need to feel satisfied.
