On Saturday I went down Ramsgate town looking for an artichoke, but alas there were none on the market stalls but I did managed to pick up a couple of aubergines instead (two for Â£1 on the stall opposite McDonald’s) and so last night I made stuffed aubergines for my dinner.
I had a gander on the internet for some recipes but in end just made something up and they were very nice indeed. It’s nice to have something different every so often and these fitted the bill whilst being very cheap too. One half an aubergine made the meal so I’ve got the other half for my lunch tomorrow, and still have one whole aubergine left to decide what to do with it. I guess it shows that you really can make a meal very cheaply if you can be bothered with taking the time to buy ingredients and prepare the meal.
The ingredients were just the hollowed-out aubergines stuffed with a mixture of rice, aubergine, green pepper, mushrooms, tomato, garlic, onion, and some herbs and spices (salt, pepper, oregano, paprika, coriander). All standard stuff I had anyway and so I just a quid spent on the aubergines.
Will this make me go back to making my own lunches instead of going to the canteen? If you’re to believe the previous post then yes it is.
