E1’s dinner last night was so delicious that I will be making a bigger portion for all of us very soon. It was a complete experiment and I’m so pleased with the way it turned out!
I put half-an-inch of water in a pan and brought it to a gentle boil. Then I chucked in some chopped tomatoes and let them start to mush down. Then I added some chopped green pepper and chopped mango pieces. These were all in roughly equal proportions — perhaps a little less of the mango. I let the three cook down until the mango and tomatoes still had their overall shape, but were starting to melt into a sauce. I added a good bit of cinnamon and basil and let it all cook a wee bit longer. I poured it over a mixed bowl of whole-wheat pasta spirals and quinoa. Then I grated a bit of strong cheddar on top.
I had no idea how these flavours would work, so I grabbed a spoon and had a quick taste… Turns out, they’re delicious together!
Post-script: Tonight was pizza. I made the dough.
