I've been asked a lot how easy is it to feed the two of us when I eat mostly vegetarian meals and Lovely Hubby is an out and out carnivore, well to be honest I find it really simple. True my man has cut back greatly on the meat he consumes, which will aid this years Challenge greatly, but when making meaty meals I have always started out with a base that is vegetarian.
For instance the curry above was made from scratch as a vegetable curry, with mixed vegetables, lentils, vegetable stock and spices and then I browned off a large chopped chicken breast and split the base curry into two pans.
They were then both cooked for 30 minutes and left to go cold ready for later in the day. Reheated curry or stews always develop a lovely depth of flavour if you do this.
It's the same when we have a simple snack for lunch. A mixed chopped salad base with grated cheese, mayo and lettuce, with a slice or two of ham added to Lovely Hubby's bun. It keeps things simple and keeps us both happy.
