Waste Not, Want Not
Serves as many as you want
However much of yesterday’s potato is left over, mashed with a little butter and cream
Half a cabbage or a good bundle of spring greens or curly kale, finely shredded
2 tbsp olive oil
1 oz unsalted butter
Slices of leftover roast beef, lamb, chicken, turkey or ham
Carrots, celery and red pepper (preferably organic) washed and cut into sticks
Plenty of cherry tomatoes
Steam the cabbage till just tender, about 10 minutes. Tip into a large bowl with the potato and mix thoroughly.
Heat the oil with the butter. Using your hands form into half inch thick flat pancakes.
Cook gently till just brown on the bottom, turn carefully to brown the other side (5 or 6 minutes in total).
Serve with the meat and vegetables for a delicious lunch or supper.
It’s sometimes hard to get youngsters eating any members of the cabbage family but cooked this way as a bubble and squeak pancake makes them palatable to most children. We seem to have lost the art of using leftovers which our mums and grannies had but it’s not only economic but time saving, nourishing and vital in these hard times.
Here you’re providing powerful immune boosting chemicals from the cabbage which not only protect against infections but are known to help prevent many forms of cancer. The potato provides energy and vitamin C and the other vegetables give your children a wide range of vitamins and minerals, especially the beta carotene which is important for immunity, healthy skin and mucus membranes like the inside of the throat and lungs.
