What’s cookin’?

Hello Jumblies,
a little chat about cooking. Takes a lot of effort, no?
Today I decided to make supper the easy way.My best energy is in the morning, so I made pasta salad (gluten free for me, ordinary for the family). Made rather yummy courgette and tomato soup which will freeze well. Also some bread from a mix, bunged in the breadmaker.
Good to know we will eat healthy food, even if I conk. Plus,I can eat little and often as it is ready and waiting- hoorah!
Got any quick, easy and healthy recipes to share? Please add in the comments. We could do a cookbook for The Jumblie Tribe…..

  1. I’m struggling to find enough recipes for courgettes to cope with the glut I have this year. If you let me have your one for tomato and courgette soup I’ll give you my Nigella one for yellow courgette ‘Happiness Soup’


  2. Here you go Annie. I found this on http://www.bbcgoodfood.com
    Have an enormous marrow I need to use, so look forward to your recipe.


    1 tbsp butter
    2 onions, chopped
    1kg courgettes, sliced
    1kg tomatoes, chopped
    2 tbsp plain flour
    ½ tsp turmeric
    2l chicken or vegetable stock from cubes
    crusty bread, to serve (optional)


    Melt the butter in a large pan, add the onions and courgettes, and cook for 5 mins on a medium heat, stirring occasionally.
    Add the tomatoes and flour. Cook for a couple of mins, stirring around to stop the flour from becoming lumpy. Add the turmeric and stock, cover and simmer for 30 mins.
    Purée with a stick blender, then sieve if you want a really smooth texture. Serve hot with crusty bread, if you like, or chill, then freeze for up to 2 months.
