I went shopping this afternoon and picked up a few bits and pieces. There was a half-used jar of tomato sauce left in the fridge from my trip to Montpellier so I needed to use that up.
There was no list, which was a bit stupid, so ended up buying:
- 115g green beans (0,95€)
- 85g mushrooms (0,94€)
- 150g cornflakes (0,69€)
- 65g black olives (0,47€)
- 2x125g tofu (2,16€)
- two large tomatoes (0,99€)
This dish wasn’t quite sure what it wanted to be when I started it, but it turned out quite nice. I like tofu as its own thing from time to time and the only thing I know to do with it is to make it a nice colour and give it some flavour.
- one small onion, chopped
- five medium cloves of garlic
- 60g green beans
- 85g mushrooms
- one small red (decorative) chilli pepper
- 125g tofu, cut into medium-sized strips
- five black olives, sliced
- chilli powder
- half a 200g jar of tomato sauce (with vegetables)
Soften the onions and garlic in some olive oil then add a sprinkling of the spices to your taste. Add the green beans and allow to cook a little over a medium heat. Add the mushrooms, stir and allow them to cook a little. Add the olives and chilli, turn up the heat and add the tofu. Stir this for a bit and coat the tofu and vegetables with the oil so they get a nice colour. Add the tomato sauce, stir and leave to simmer over a low heat.
I served this with rice.
The adjusted pot now stands at 59,60€.
