Haricot bean and onion casseroleThe haricot bean, navy bean, pearl bean, Boston bean, white pea bean, or pea bean is a variety of the common bean. It is a dry white bean that is smaller than many other types of white beans, and has an oval, slightly flattened shape. This recipe comes from a good friend in Wales it is a wartime recipe which has been adapted slightly. It is very thrifty but surprisingly good to eat.Leek and mushroom bakeI was given this recipe a long time ago. I wonder why the sauce is not made with regular flour like a regular béchamel..But I guess both can work. This can be a side dish or a main...MinestroneThis is a versatile and heartwarming soup, particularly nice in winter. All the ingredients and their quantities can be modified to suit your tastes and the contents of your fridge. Replacing the green beans by legumes will make the soup even more nourishing.Mini hasselback potatoesThis looks as good as it tastes. A good way to serve potatoes in a buffet.Raspberries and rhubarb crumbleThis tastes great served hot over vanilla ice cream.
The choice of fruit can vary, apples and peaches are especially suited for crumbles, you can add spices accordingly such as cinnamon, ginger or nutmeg. You can also add 1/2 cup of old-fashioned rolled oats or 1/2 cup chopped nuts (or both) to the topping.
Crumbles will keep, covered and refrigerated, for up to 1 week. Serve cold, room temperature, or re-warmed in a low oven for 20 minutes.Roasted cauliflowerThis recipe is probably healthier than the traditional cheese sauce covered cauliflower one, it is also very tasty.
You can play with the flavours using powders instead of the onion and garlic and adding or subtracting spices....
