    Hey @Joecity, I cooked some chicken thighs earlier and was thinking about serving them up with broccoli and some other veg, what can I do to make the veg a bit more appealing to the missus and little 'un?

    :hehe: Ok. Me I'd do Broccoli cheese. Like Cauliflower cheese but with Broccoli. That's the Broccoli taken care of. It's pretty mingin otherwise unless it's the long stem stuff. The rest of the veg I'd just cook. As others have said a drop of gravy.

    Hmm, not sure about cooking things in plastic bags.

    The answer is ratatouille. Really tasty way of cooking a variety of veg that can be used as an accompaniment for most things or as a base for a curry. I make tons of the stuff and freeze double portions for future use.

    My basic recipe, to which you can add anything else you fancy.

    Sun dried tomatoes (from jar) chopped finely and the oil used as base for cooking
    Fresh tomatoes
    Tomato purée
    Large onion
    Plenty of fresh garlic crushed
    Green pepper
    Red pepper
    Aubergine
    Courgette
    A few dates finely chopped to sweeten and maybe one cube of brown sugar
    Small amount of dried thyme and dried basil

    Slow cook in covered pan on hob until reduced right down. Remove lid to reduce further if you prefer.

    The French leave this simmering all day.

    Adjust the percentages to your taste.

    Cook all the veg until just soft. Mash it up in a bowl with plenty of seasoning. Let it go cold. Make it into little cakes, dust with flour and shallow fry, drain well then into the oven for 5 mins. Always good. Good for getting little uns to eat veg. Healthy enough if you use olive oil.

    Cheese and gravy on the same plate may not be to everyone's taste. I quite fancy it now mind

    Everyone thinks that until they eat it. Then they wonder what they've been doing all their lives. Some pickled red cabbage as well. Tremendous.
