This week, we’ve got eggs, risotto, curry, pie and steak.  The new recipes are both vegetarian and include frittatas and curry. The chicken recipe from last week has now been posted.  I managed to forget the spinach, so I’ll add it as a variation the next time I use the recipe.

We’ve ended up with a stack of eggs in the house, so I’m going to make frittatas for breakfast.  These ones are made with zucchini, corn and cheese.  The recipe can be found here.

I wanted to do a chicken risotto again, so I’ll make that for lunch on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  I’ve updated the recipe and you can find it here.

Monday and Tuesday’s dinner is a lentil and vegetable curry that I’m converting for the Thermomix.  I’m going to use pumpkin, cauliflower and green beans for the vegetables.  The draft recipe is below.

For Wednesday’s dinner and Thursday’s lunch, I want to revisit the fish pie recipe.  I’ll serve this with some steamed cauliflower which I’ll cook in the Varoma while the pie is in the oven.

Thursday’s dinner is steak with mushrooms and snow peas; cooked on a grill pan.  I’ll also cook up some thinly sliced onions in a frying pan.
