First, I wanted to make a cauliflower soup from frozen veggs:
then I did what everyone does but nobody admits: cooked from the backside recipe:
48 million polish-speaking population can stop at this point and just cook from the pic.
The rest of the world follow the simplified version I actually cooked:
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 small chicken breasts
1 tablespoon green curry paste
1 garlic clove
small piece of ginger
1 pack (450g) frozen vegetables (cauliflower, carrots, potatoes, green onion, dill )
150 ml 3.5% fat milk
1 tablespoon soy sauce
chicken stock cube
Crash the garlic clove and fry it for 1-2 mins together with minced fresh ginger. Add cubed chicken and fry for another 3-4 mins. Add vegetables, curry paste and add hot water: only so much to cover the vegetables. Add milk and simmer for 10-15 min. until vegetables are soft. I prefer not to allow a dish to cook for too long as its losing the nutrition values. As I am now in 30+ club I care nutrition, ecology and pension schemes. So, add coriander, soy sauce, salt and pepper and enjoy mild curry for a lunch.

let’s say we get 2 big portions from the above so this makes only 225 kcal per person! grrrreat
That’s a real treat
1 ball mozzarella cheese (sliced)
40 gram fresh yeast
1.5 glass flour
0.5 glass lukewarm water
3-4 tbsp olive oil
0.5 courgette thinly sliced
0.5 red pepper (sliced)
1 small tomato (sliced)
1 chicken breast
3-4 tbsp ketchup
Dough: mix yeast with 5 spoons of water and 0.5 tsp sugar. Add flour and water. Mix gently and add a pinch of salt (it’s better to add salt as late as possible: it kills yeast). Add 3-4 tablespoons oil olive. Knead the dough: it should be a bit loosen but not very sticky so that hands come out clean) If it is too sticky add more flour- too hard, add water. Leave covered with a tablecloth in a warm place for approx. 15 mins. It should grow. Yeasts are very delicate: they don’t like too hot, or too cold, they hate salt and they don’t like windy air! They also prefer privacy so don’t peep too often under the cloth and into the oven 😉 In the meantime cube the chicken and fry on a pan till golden.
Roll out the dough and bake for 10 mins in 210 Celsius . It’s good to make several holes with a fork so that it doesn’t grow too much. Smear the dough base with ketchup and add toppings; chicken, courgette, mozzarella, tomato, pepper, oregano and basil. Bake in 210 Celsius until cheese is melted and dough turns golden.
And the house smells Italy… o mamma!
p.s. goes glorious with a glass of red
Calorie count: approx. 270-300 kcal /portion (this pizza makes 4 portions but requires small habit change who are used to shove 25 cm pizza at one go; this pizza has quite a thick base and there’s lots of topping on it, not like one green pea per 10 cm2 . So we can say it to 3 slices of these from Pizza Hut. BTW: 3 slices of similar pizza in Pizza Hut = 3 x 250 kcal = 700 kcal!
