Sometimes it’s when your back is against the wall that the most creative and delicious things happen in the kitchen. Or not? Ha! Lucky for me, this experiment worked and is definitely share-worthy.
Every Thursday I have a ‘kid-free’ day. I love Thursdays and I’m not ashamed to say it. I need Thursday!
It’s only a recent phenomenon and I make the most of it to do all the things I can’t do with two kids around. This Thursday I left home to drop the kids off in the morning and didn’t return again until after I picked them up. It was 5pm when we got home. Lucky I had some soup and frozen zucchini slice thawed for their dinner (does anyone else find it hard to feed their kids after a day in care??? Sometimes they are so knackered I just give them eggs on toast).
But I felt like something really tasty so looked in the fridge and got creative (in between getting kids fed and bathed – such is the beauty of the thermomix!). I wanted a Moroccan flavour and don’t really know if I achieved that, but it was delicious and a little spicy nonetheless. Below I’ve given thermomix and conventional directions. And choose whichever vegetables you like – use my suggestions as a guide – it’d work with anything!
