A stew made of leftovers and vegetables. This is the name given to it by people in Stoke-on-Trent. Basically ‘lobbing’ things in. In Liverpool it might be called ‘Lob scouse’.
This has some celery, carrot, potato, mushroom, cauliflower in it. I had a small amount of duck and a bit of lamb left over so I’ve added that. A little heat from some grated ginger. A bit of garlic, a small amount of chilli flakes and a bit of salt. My aim is to make a warming stew to warm us up on this winter day. It’s simmering on the hob at the moment. I hope it will taste OK.
Tried to make this from just a list of ingredients.
Beetroot, potato or brown bread, garlic, a little olive oil, walnuts, cider vinegar (I only had malt vinegar). You can substitute bread for potato.
I peeled the five Beetroot and two Potatoes , chopped them, put them in a pan to boil for half an hour.
Then I took four cloves of Garlic and crushed them in a pestle and mortar. Then crushed the Walnuts and mixed them with the garlic. I added a little olive oil to help.
Watch the Beetroot and Potato and when you can push a knife into them and they are soft, drain off the water.
Allow the Beetroot and Potato to cool, then add the crushed Walnuts with the garlic. I had to add a bit more to improve the consistency. I also added the juice of half a lime to give it a kick.
I mashed the Walnut and Garlic into the Beetroot mix.
The final result, in a covered bowl in the fridge.
Meal, jacket potato with coleslaw, chopped tomato, Beetroot hummus and sausages (apologies to vegetarians and vegans). I could have used a food blender, but decided its easier not to have to clean it and waste electricity.
