Corn (1 can)
1 bottle of stir fry sauce of your choice
Herbs - coriander, basil, curry powder
3-4 peas (whole pods or 1 can)
2 packets of noodles or 100g rice
500g meat of your choice
Heat up a pan with some olive oil and place the meat and the veggies of your choice into the pan. Cook till the meat turns brown and the veggies go a bit soft. Add the stir fry sauce into the mixture and stir well.
Boil some water at about 3/4 of a pot, and then add the noodles or rice. Leave it to cook for a while, and then check by stirring whether it's gone soft.
Drain the water and add the rice/noodles into the pan with the veggies and give it a good mix. Once the mixture goes thick, leave it aside to cool for a while for the sauce to thicken even more.
125g unsalted butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs (beaten)
3 ripe bananas (mashed)
2 cups plain flour
1/2 tea spoon salt
1 table spoon baking powder
1/2 tea spoon grated nutmeg
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees centigrade.
Line the bottom of a 20X10X8 cm loaf pan. Butter the lining and sides.
Cream the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl until fluffy and light. Add the eggs and continue beating for about a minute.
Add the bananas and mix well.
In another bowl, sift the flour, salt, baking powder and nutmeg. Gradually add this mixture to the banana mix and keep mixing well till you get a well-blended batter. Add the walnuts to this and give it a final whirl.
Pour this batter into the loaf pan and place in oven. Bake till the surface goes golden brown.
2 slices of toast
1 spring onion (chopped finely)
1/2 tomato (diced)
1/4 capsicum (diced)
Cheese (either in spread form or shredded form)
Beat the egg in a bowl and then pour into a heated pan. Cook on one side, add the chopped vegetables into the pan and then flip half of the egg on to the veggie mix. Add the cheese in a way that it spreads over the length of the omelette. Serve on a plate with the toast on the side.
