I haven’t cooked the last couple of days. Fasting on Thursday and of course, Fridays is always takeaway night. Which has been handy because I’ve felt really rough 😦 I’m boring myself now with being ill, let alone everyone around me.
So today The Hubster went to a chess match and I cooked Nigel Slaters Slow Cooked Lamb with Chick Pea Mash. OMFG! Chick Pea Mash! 🙂
It was a bit stressful, especially as I wasn’t feeling too great…have you ever tried to mash chick peas? I tried a manual approach with a potato masher…then I tried the blender…and finally, my Braun Hand Blender… needless to say, the mash was a bit lumpy lol…but still bloody good. As usual, I changed the recipe and just added stuff to taste 😉
Chick Pea Mash
2 cans Chick Peas, drained
1 onion chopped
Knob of butter
Paprika, salt & pepper to taste
Fry the onion in olive oil and butter until soft then add the chick peas to warm through. Place in a food processor and blitz, adding olive oil and seasoning to taste.
Ok, I knew I needed a food processor, but now, I really need one! But, saying that, I quite liked it lumpy 🙂
So now I’m on the look out for a food processor…do you have one? And if so, would you recommend your model? There are so many on the market!
