I am still using Campbell’s breakfast box to fuel my meals.
Due to T being a vegetarian it’s lasted me nearly a month. One of the best things I’ve bought during 2017. One of the bits I was worried about was the haggis. I love haggis – but have never cooked it myself. I looked through a lot of recipes, but decided to wing it and attempt a kind of haggis style ragu. It tasted and looked delicious and I could serve it with mashed potatoes. Disclaimed – my favourite way to eat potatoes.
Enjoy. (Plus, don’t be put off by the haggis.)
Put in your trolley
100g of Haggis (could use vegetarian that I have found at Waitrose.)
300g of maris potatoes (or any potatoes you fancy mashing – sweet would also work.)
Milk + butter for mashing (and salt and pepper.)
120g of red onion chopped into chunky-ish bits
120g of pepper chopped also in chunky bits
140g of passata (I used Napolina)
A helpful sprinkling of hot chilli powder
Put a big saucepan onto boil. Chop up the potatoes into regular pieces, salt the water and tip in the potato chunks. Boil until soft.
Whilst potatoes are boiling, heat a small pan and add the peppers and onions. Fry for a couple of minutes and then chop up the haggis and add. Season with pepper (not salt the haggis should be enough.) Sprinkle in a good amount of chilli powder based on your personal taste. Then add the passata. Turn the hob down to low and cook until it thickens. You want a bolognaise style consistency. If it becomes too thick spoon in some water from the potatoes.
Once the potatoes are cooked drain and splash in a little milk and butter. I think everyone has their own personal way of making mash so do that. Season well with salt and pepper, and make sure you make it over a low heat. (Helps bring it all together.)
Pile the mash and the haggis ragu together on a plate a devour!
Numbers (if you’re bothered.)
This came to around 400 calories. Perfect for lunch or dinner. You could also add extra vegetables or serve the ragu with pasta!
I recommend reading The Swap by Nancy Boyarsky. I don’t think it’s come out quite yet but it’s one to keep an eye out for. See my review here – it’s a wonderful read.
