I tried out a new 'recipe' tonight for my evening meal - I took a frozen soup from Iceland called Tom Kha Soup (described as a 'Thai style spicy and sour soup with chicken breast, oriental vegetables, coconut milk and flavoured with fragrant lime leaves and lemon grass - £1.50), and defrosted it in the microwave for 8 minutes as per instructions.
In the meantime I put a pan of basmati wholegrain brown rice on to cook (60g per person) for approx 25 minutes.
In a large frying pan I fried one white onion and 2 cloves of garlic in olive oil for a few minutes, and then added some frozen prawns, 2 small handfuls of frozen peas, a third of a bag of Kale (just 33p worth), and some chopped chillies into the frying pan and gently fried these - then when the soup finished its 8 minutes in the microwave I added it to the frying pan with the other ingredients, and simmered it on a lowish heat for a further 10 to 15 minutes, until the rice was ready.
This served 2 people, and the photo shows my plate of food. Yummy!
It was delicious!!! I'll definitely do that again.
I'd love to know what you had for your meal tonight, if you care to share.
