An Eighth Day using Meal Plan 1 leftovers
Breakfast – make porridge with 60g oats each (120g in total) and the 490ml milk, share between two bowls and sprinkle on the remaining tblsp sugar
Lunch – Soup. Saute 100g onion and 100g potato in 2 tlsps oil (to get the calories up), cook until soft. Add 150g lentils and enough water to cover. Simmer for 20 minutes, adding 20g peas at the end. Whizz if you want to.
Dinner – peanut bannocks – make the bannocks as in this post, using 120g oats and 30ml oil. Quarter 190g onion, don’t peel, and toss in a tsp oil. While the bannocks are cooking, roast the onions at the same time. Cook 150g peas. Mash the roasted onions and peas together, season.
Chop 100g salted peanuts as fine as you can get them. Serve the bannocks with the roasted onion and pea hoummous with peanuts sprinkled over. Alternatively, mix the peanuts into the oats before you make the bannocks.
Snack – take 4 slices of bread, spread them with margarine on both sides. Sprinkle the remaining 30g raisins on 2 of the slices, press the other 2 slices on top, so making 2 raisin sandwiches. Fry gently in a frying pan, until the outside is crispy and brown. Flip over and cook the other side. Serve immediately
Not bad – what would you make with the leftovers, there are other ways to use them
