I got this recipe off the internet as a carrot-based recipe. Our opinion was that it had promise but was too carroty (and too ricey). This is the modified version which just got enthusiastically hoovered up by B (though if he hadn't given up on counting calories for the day I suspect he wouldn't have eaten it all - for those interested in such things I reckon it works out as around 120 calories per 100g).

Picture under the cut )

Serves 2 as a main.

1 tbsp cumin seeds
200g carrots, sliced
200g parsnips, sliced
100g turnip, sliced
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tin chickpeas, drained
1 tbsp olive oil
125ml vegetable stock
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/3-1/2 cup dried rice
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
30g feta cheese, crumbled or chopped as your cheese allows
Pepper to season

1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C.
2. Grind the cumin seeds to a powder (toast first if you feel keen)
3. Combine the sliced vegetables, onion, chickpeas, olive oil and cumin in a roasting dish. Stir to coat everything with cumin and oil.
4. Pour over the stock and lemon juice, cover with tin foil, and bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
5. If using a rice cooker, put the rice on to cook around now, otherwise start cooking the rice after about 25 minutes.
6. Remove foil and return to the oven for about 10-15 minutes.
7. Remove from the oven, toss in the rice, sunflower seeds and feta cheese. Season with pepper.

In other news. The NuWho rewatch is suspended until NLSS Child feels up to Blink. She has seen bits of this in the Internet and a few years ago it led to a whole "I can't take showers because of falling statuary" panic, made the more bizarre because we own no statues, let alone any in the bathroom. She has agreed to watch it on a weekend morning (it having been made clear that not washing isn't an option), but I'm away this weekend so it may have to wait until next weekend.

Meanwhile, she has to read a number of different sorts of book for school, and has selected The Hitch-hikers Guide to the Galaxy as her humour book (a choice endorsed by her teacher). This has led to a certain amount of defensiveness on tame layman's part. He is currently forcibly playing her the radio series on the grounds it is superior and she should listen to it before reading the book.

This is [livejournal.com profile] phina_v's recipe, as requested by misc. Primeval fans.

4 Mars Bars
4oz Butter
200g (or 230g) slab of Dairy Milk Chocolate
3oz Rice Krispies (or own brand rice pops or whatever)

1. Melt the Mars Bars with 3oz butter. I generally do this in a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water but I'm told Mars Bars can be melted direct in a saucepan.
2. Stir in the rice krispies.
3. Place in a buttered baking dish (I also line with baking parchment).
4. Melt Dairy Milk and remaining butter. I generally reuse my previous bowl.
5. Spread over base.
6. Leave to cool. We put it in the fridge to speed up the process.
