One pots


These are the 2 one pot bargains from last night.  I cooked up the smoky bean one first.  It was nice and spicy but lacked 'something.'  I added a tin of baked beans and it was rather nice.  I had a small bowl for supper, a portion with leftover rice for my lunch today and there's another lunch sized portion for tomorrow. So this 10p pot gave me 3 meals!


Tonight I had the curry one.  I cooked it as per the instructions but added some coconut milk at the end.  I like to have mango chutney with a curry but I didn't have any.  However, I was given a jar of mango jam for Christmas.  Chutney is the same as jam (sort of) with added vinegar so I stirred some into a few spoons of jam.  Hey presto, mango 'chutney.'  A bit runny but yummy!


The curry was mild and quite nice although I prefer my own home made versions.  But again this bargain made 2 decent portions.  The other one is in the fridge for another night.

Both one pots had healthy ingredients, no rubbish but very overpriced at £2.60.  Perfectly acceptable for 10p though.
