Mill’s Meals: ‘Tuscan Pea Soup’ Recipe

This is the perfect Autumnal recipe, cheap and cheerful as well as colourful and tasty. You can make a batch for next to nothing and it reheats well so you can take it into work in tupperware and feed yourself for at least three days. How else do you think I manage to save up for all my Air Max 1′s? Tupperware rules everything around me. This is perfect for veggies too, just swap chicken for veggie stock and voila!

Ingredients:

1 large onion, very thinly sliced
3 large cloves of garlic, peeled
1 stick of celery, peeled and finely diced
1 large carrot, peeled and finely diced
1 Litre of chicken stock (from cube or homemade)
2 cups of frozen petit pois
Serve with:
I large slice of crusty, white bread toasted – Sourdough preferably
I clove of garlic cut in half to rub over the toast
Grated Parmesan

Mill’s Meals x 55DSL : One Pot Chicken

Fresh for September, here’s the latest Mill’s Meals. I love this dish for many reasons; it’s really tasty, the ingredients are cheap and easy to get and, most importantly, it never lets me down. A great post-work midweek dinner. If you’re feeling indulgent, add half a pot of double cream to the mix but be warned it makes it very rich and may induce a food coma.

Ingredients (serves 2):

4 free range chicken thighs
1 garlic bulb
1 handful fresh Tarragon
1 cup of dry white wine (cheap & cheerful)
1 cup of chicken stock
Handful of small waxy potatoes (Roseval are good)
Juice of half a lemon
1/2 cup of frozen petit pois
Serve with rice
Special Thanks to 55DSL, click here for my vest

Mill’s Meals Sweet Potato and Spinach Curry

It was a miserable day in July when we shot this but, thankfully, the weather’s got its arse into gear somewhat since – even though Brits love to complain rain or shine. This recipe’s a good one no matter the weather and is a Sunday lunch regular at mine as it’s cheap and cheerful, incredibly tasty, quick to make and reasonably healthy. Hit me up on Twitter if you have any opinions on what should get cooked up next, I think it will be a meat recipe as I’ve not done one in ages.

Ingredients:

1 large Sweet Potato
3 small Potatoes
1 Onion
1 Clove of Garlic
1 Green Chilli
Handful of Whole Leaf Spinach (roots cut off and washed thoroughly) or 2 handfuls of Baby Spinach
2 Tbsp of Ground Almonds
1 Tbsp of Mild Curry Powder
1 Tsp Turmeric
1/2 Tsp Ground Cumin
1 tin 400g Coconut Milk
Juice of 1/2 Lime

Serve with Basmati Rice, Yogurt and Mango Chutney

My Youtube Channel

Finally, after a long while (6 months at least), I’ve sorted out my own Youtube Channel and uploaded all my Mill’s Meals videos to one place. Before this i-D have been uploading them onto their own channel and, until recently, were listing them as private which obviously has meant not only have they been hard to find but there’s been no organic hits. Since this is essentially starting from scratch, all the videos on my channel are looking a little sad with no views but on the plus side, since starting it on Saturday I’ve got 5 subscribers! Better than a kick in the teeth. I’m hoping in the long term having my own channel will get more people finding them, watching them and sharing them. Any ways, enough of the sob story, if you would be so kind as to subscribe to my channel that would be wonderful and help soothe some of my bubbling self-doubt!

There’s a little tab on the right handside of the screen that you just click and it subscribes you >>>>>>
