A really yummy use-it-up supper
Our fruit and veg is delivered weekly on a Thursday.
Consequently on Wednesdays I like to have supper that uses up veg before the new lot arrives.
Daughter visited a warehouse a few weeks ago that sells 'gone past best before' tinned and packet goods, and came back with a large case of rice noodles for us (36 packets for £4..). I have no issue using goods that are past 'best before' as long as they are not rotted. With products in packets and tins, they can be safely enjoyed a long time after this date, and I use my eyes and nose for fresh produce.
So this evening I used the food processor and shredded:
4 cloves garlic
a large red onion
a broccoli stalk (the head was used on Sunday)
half a Savoy cabbage
a frozen chilli *
a red pepper
I stir-fried the onion, garlic, broccoli and chilli for a few minutes in a little oil.
then I added the rest of the shredded veg and continued to stir fry it.
To this I added a packet of pre-cooked rice noodles, and I added some soy sauce just before serving.
It was blooming lovely, and just what was needed on this chilly, grotty-weathered evening.
Any veg that is left over on our delivery day goes to a local lady who cooks for the soup kitchen.
Do you have any recipes to share that could help someone else reading?
* I buy fresh chillies and put them in the freezer, and use them straight from there.
