Good 1-pot meals that make good leftovers?
Some of the stuff I have done recently:
- Shrimp & Cod Chowder
- Shrimp Étouffée (served with rice) https://www.africanbites.com/shrimp-etouffee/
I buy 3/4 lb weenie shrimp for $5.99 & the Seaquest fillets that are on sale this week at Loblaws/Zehrs for $4.99. Both of these recipes microwave well because they are roux-based, not cornstarch-based.
- West African Peanut Stew (Maafe)
I replaced the typical sweet potato in this with red pepper so it was not too starchy & it worked well. I cannot find the original recipe I used online, but it had poached shredded chicken legs, chickpeas, both peanuts & peanut butter, tomatoes & sweet potato. I would not put the peanuts in the stew next time; I would serve it with chopped peanuts along with cilantro on top.
- Dal Makhani (Butter Lentils)
This is just whole red lentils (brown lentils) in a butter chicken-style sauce.
- Madhur Jaffrey’s red split lentils with lamb dalcha https://www.countrylife.co.uk/food-drin ... lamb-18941
I make this with ground lamb & ground spices & it does not look like the picture – it is a dal (lentil stew). I really love this 1.
