Someone I know invented this, but I cannot remember who it was. Possibly Lucy, who wrote another guest blog years ago but I have lost touch with her. Not my mother who would never give such a name to one of her creations. So I cannot give credit for the recipe on first publication, but am very happy to set the record straight. I am not convinced by the stock cube, nor the mixed herbs.
1 large white onion, finely chopped
Finely chopped garlic
1 leek, sliced into half cm rings
2 red peppers, cut into .5 cm squares
1 carrot, chopped into rings then each ring quartered
1 courgette, cut as carrot
2 tins tomatoes
2 medium potatoes
Handful lentils or pearl barley
1 stock cube
600 ml water
Cook garlic and onion in olive oil. Add other vegetables, add stock and water. Cook. Eat.
