400g can chopped tomatoes (Watties Indian are good)

1/2c dried apricots
1/2c pitted black olives
salt + pepper to season
Fresh coriander or parsley to serve.

Bung it all in the slow cooker on low for 8hrs.
Serve with couscous or rice. YUMMO.


In the slow cooker for tonight :cool:

I made this about a week and a half ago. I used the Watties Indian Tomatoes. Came out really nice. Kids could have just had the chicken by itself, but I really enjoyed it, a good recipe

We LOVED it! Riley was so-so, but given that she was almost asleep at the table (wee ratbag decided she wasn't having an afternoon sleep), I wasn't expecting too much cooperation from her...
Definitely going to be a regular meal in our house - thanks scatter! :D

Doh - double post!

Hmmm - as an aside, we browned the chicken first - I think it added a good flavour!

Velo's Great-Grandmama's Muesli.
---------------------------------------------

DRY

8 cups rolled oats (I use 1/2 & 1/2 chunky wholegrain and smaller rolled)
2 cups dessicated coconut
1 cup peanuts
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup linseed
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds / cashews / almonds / whatever you can afford
1/2 cup LSA
any other seeds, nuts, etc you're feeling.

WET

1 & 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup sunflower oil (or whatever your cheap cooking oil of choice is)
2TBsp molasses / honey / brown sugar / or not

----------------------------------------------------------------

Mix up the dry, bring the wet to the boil then mix through the dry.
Chuck it in 2 roasting trays, bung it on the oven at 180º - 200º C with the fan on, stir regularly till as toasted as you like it.

Stirring times get closer together the longer it's in the oven to avoid burning, when done turn the oven off and leave the trays in overnight so it goes crunchy.

Makes about a 3L jar full, which at current consumption rates is about a week for 2 eaters.

That's practically identical to my mum's, AND SWMBO's Grandma's (which is what is made in this house)... must be like the generic NZ matriarchal recipe.

wheat germ is good to add to it too...

(had to look up LSA...)

Go the grannies!

Forgot to add - I put 1/2 to 1 cup of all bran in once it's cool...

Sugar free biscuits that my kids actually liked! They're a shade under a hundy calories per bikkie just in case anyone goes crazy and has four in a row like I did :blush:

Prep Time : 10 minutes. Cook Time : 20 minutes Yield : 21 Allergens : Dairy Free, Egg Free, Nut Free, Sugar Free, Wheat Free
Rating 3.95 stars - based on 20 review(s)

Ingredients

Dates - 1/2 cup (Medjool or fresh dates make this recipe much more delicious)
Desiccated Coconut - 1/2 cup
Oats - 1/2 cup (organic rolled oats are tastier and have better texture)
Almonds - 1/2 cup (you can use sesame seeds to be nut free, also very yummy with the dates)
Butter - 3 Tablespoons (Coconut Oil is great too and makes this dairy free / vegan)
Orange - Juice of a small Orange - some zest is optional
Instructions

Process 1/2 cup of each oats, coconut, dates and almonds in a food processor until a crumb like texture
Add cold butter and juice of a small orange and process further to combine
The dough will hold it's shape when formed together
Roll into a log, wrap in cling film and place in fridge to firm up
If you are pushed for time, simply roll into small balls and flatten onto a baking tray, no need to firm up in fridge (this is a little more fiddly, but looks lovely pressed with a fork)
Once the log is solid, you can easily slice cookies, about 3mm is good
Preheat oven to 170C
Place on baking paper on a cookie tray and bake in oven for about 20 minutes - remove when slightly brown
Cool on a wire rack to firm up
Store in an air tight container for 2 weeks - they won't last that long though!
