Chow Mein, Vegetable Stock and Apple Sauce

Chow Mein, Vegetable Stock and Apple Sauce

Massive evening of cooking. Came home from a high tea and needed something vegie packed.

First up, Chow Mein.

Using the Tupperware Fusion Grater, i have grated 2 carrots, 1/4 red cabbage, 1/4 white cabbage and 1 red onion.  Browned beef mince, then added the vegies, packet chicken noodle soup mix, curry powder, rice, beans, peas, corn, water, salt, pepper and 110mls of my previously made vegie stock.

Brought to the boil and then simmered for 30 minutes stirring every now and then.

This created 1 serve for dinner and 4 extra serves that i put in the freezer for another time.

This was approximately 2 ladles in each serve.

Next up, whilst the chow mein was cooking i have made another batch of vegetable stock using my scraps in the freezer.

Doesn’t look the most appitising, but was so great to make with all the veggie scraps over the last few weeks. All i do is, using a large container in the freezer (or plastic bag) place all scraps in this and once full place scraps in a stock pot with water until they float and bring to the boil. I allowed this to simmer for 2 hours.

I then poured vegetables and stock through a colander into a bowl and then through another smaller colander into a jug. I have poured the ready stock into a seal-able jug and put into the fridge to cool and use later. Will make soup tomorrow.

The scraps i had in the container were carrot ends and some peel, spring onion peel, ends and tops, onion skins, cabbage scraps, babay spinach, tomatoes, celery, capsicum.

Discard in the bin, green waste, compost the left over scraps once done.

Tastes way better than the store brought stuff.

Lastly, Homemade Apple Sauce in the Pressure Cooker.

Using the Tupperware MicroPressure Cooker i have peeled and cut up 10 apples, added 1/2 cup white sugar, tablespoon of cinnamon and 1 1/2 cups water into the bowl of the pressure cooker.

Cook for 15 minutes at 800 WATT.

Once pressure has released i have added the apples and juice to the Tupperware Extra Chef with the blades and chopped and blitzed until it all comes together. I have then swapped with the beater and blitzed a few times more.

I have then poured this sauce into containers and placed into the freezer to use when ready.

Tastes way better than the store brought stuff.
