Helen’s Home Cooking

Well, it’s almost 2 months on from Christmas so surely the time is ripe for getting some of that frozen Turkey back into food. This week we have therefore chosen a simple creamy Spaghetti dish. As always the vegetables I use are either just what’s in the fridge or in this case the freezer.

Next week we are making a dish given to me from our reporter Nick Morrison for Special Beans, which I’ve paired with homemade chilli burgers. Really simple and full of flavour and protein. For this you shall need, 1 tin of beans, an onion, garlic, cumin, turmeric and chilli. For the burgers you shall need, 400g of beef mince, onion, garlic, herbs, chilli, breadcrumbs and egg if you prefer to use less beef.
