It’s half term and I’ve had very little time to plan a posh nosh meal, so yesterday it was a throw it all in the tin meatloaf, which actually went down a treat with the ‘boys’.
So today….what to cook after half a days work, quick run – me time, holiday club drop off/pick up, and a walk in the park with my boy……. a quick rummage in the fridge and I come across this lovely wet garlic, grab the leftover meatloaf, reach for the chopped tomatoes and get to work.
I cut the meatloaf into 1 inch cubes and set aside. Then the wet garlic, I cut it into 4 pieces lengthways, then chopped it finely and slowly sauté in some coconut oil. (keep some aside for the green vegetables)
Once the wet garlic becomes translucent, in go the chopped tomatoes, a pinch of salt, some fresh thyme and cayenne pepper with paprika. This cooks slowly on a medium heat until the sauce becomes thick and the oil begins to separate.
Meanwhile the green vegetables I prepare in the steamer and add the chopped wet garlic which was left aside. Let these vegetables steam and the garlic infuse for 5 minutes.
Wholemeal pasta is simmering in another pan for ‘the boys’ at the same time.
I throw the ‘meatball cubes’ into the sauce and stir in, then add some water and let it simmer for about 5-10 minutes.
I think ‘the boys’ liked it….
