This year, I will be making more vegetarian meals, and aim to have one vegetarian meal a week. So with the fish lovely hubby and son catches, we should only have meat 3 to 4 times a week. I am hoping this will make a difference to our shopping budget, as it has been steadily climbing up and I am not happy with it. I know I make most things from scratch, so that should make a difference to the budget but we also eat a lot of fresh fruit and veg and I know that that pushes the price up. We have a bumper crop of Red Paw Paws coming on, so hopefully that will make a difference to, at least, to what we pay for fruit.
I always have chickpeas ready to go in the freezer, so they will be the base for lots of vegetarian meals and ALDI always stock a wide range of pulses, so they will also be on our shopping list regularly. I will be searching my recipe books and torn out recipes from magazines to come up with some great vegetarian recipes that we all will enjoy. This is a recipe that I have had for ages and just hadn't gotten around to making it, so I gave it a go and it's a winner. Easy, filling and delicious.
|In a jug, whisk the eggs and the milk together|
|Add the flour to a large bowl|
|Whisk in the egg/milk mixture|
|Now, add all other ingredients|
|And mix well to combine|
|Add a small amount of oil to a heavy based, non stick fry pan and heat to medium. Add 1/4 cup of mixture to the hot pan and spread slightly with a spatula.|
|Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes a side or until golden brown. Set aside and cover with some foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining mixture.|
