Vegetarian Week DAY 5

Stupid Blogger won't let me post any pictures.

Breakfast this morning - toasted crumpet with wine jelly and a plum
Lunch - Went out for a Bean and Corn Quesadilla. I'm going to have the leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
Dinner - ooooh so good. Last night I made Meena's Chickpea Curry from Hooked on Heat. We had it tonight - wow what a super dish. You should go check out her great site. We had some salad and another new recipe - Twice Baked Potatos with Indian Spices and Peas from The New Best Recipe. Fairly quick to make (excluding the baking of the potatos), very aromatic and wonderful.

I am running short on time tonight, so I'll paraphrase my version of the recipe for you.

For 2 or more servings, bake 2 potatos. Let cool slightly and cut in half so they sit nicely on a baking sheet. Scoop out most of the flesh, leaving a solid shell. Melt 2 tb butter in a pan and add half a chopped onion, 2 garlic cloves and a small knob of chopped ginger. Cook for a few minutes, then stir in 1 tsp cumin, and 1/4 tsp each cinnamon, tumeric, and cloves. Cook for a couple more minutes, then add in the potato flesh and a couple of tablespoons of water. Cook for 3 or 4 minutes, then add 3/4 cup of thawed peas. Cook for one minute, then spoon back into the shells. Return to the oven for 15 minutes and serve.
