Experimental Cooking With Mr Newt

Today’s lunch

Mixed Nuts and Vegetables Szechwan style (i.e. HOT!!!)


1 hand full of mixed nuts chopped.
1 onion
2 cloves of Garlic
1 Carrot
1 handful of peas
half a head of Broccoli
2 hand fulls of chopped mushrooms
3 hand fulls of whole wheat pasta
1 teaspoon of Chllipowder
half a stock cube
soy sauce to taste

1 .Boil kettle, place pasta in pan and cover 1.5 times with water. Bring to boil simmer for 12 mins.
2. Roast nuts in pan for about 1-2 minutes.
3. Add about 1cm depth of boiling water add onion/carrot/garlic and chilli powder. Braise for 1-2 mins then add the rest of the vegetables
4. Add 3 cm depth of water, stock cube and soy sauce. Allow to simmer for 30 seconds and then add drained pasta, which should be cooked by now.
5. Serve!!

Hand fulls-my hands are very small, so you may wish to reduce amounts if you are some genetically engineered Mr Big Hands.

Braising-I’m a fat bastard so I’m not allowed use fat in cooking at the moment. And to be honest now that I’ve discovered a 1cm depth of boiling water will do the job…can’t say I miss it much.
