I'm stripping back this weekly What's-for-Tea section to what it was in the first week - just a series of suggestions without a recipe. I'll just give a general idea what I have in mind. You figure out the rest or ask me for instructions.



Lasagne with lentils and eggplant (Cook lentils first, layer with grilled eggplant and lasagne sheets, top with cheese sauce and bake until golden.)



Satay pork (Stir fry strips of pork with ginger, garlic, sesame oil, ground coriander, lime juice and spring onions. Serve with rice and a sauce made with garlic, onions, lime juice, tahini, chillies, peanut butter and soy sauce.)


Fried potatoes with yoghurt ( Mix plain yoghurt with chopped mint and salt. Make a spice mix from coriander, cumin, chillies, salt and pepper, add garlic and lime juice. Cook small potatoes until half done. Cool slightly, peel and toss with the spice mix. Fry garlic and sliced onions until golden, add potatoes and a little water. Cook until done. Serve with the yoghurt.)



"Mushy" pancakes (Make a lot of pancakes, fill with creamed mushrooms and serve with a salad.)



Rice bake (Mix cooked rice and nuts and seeds with grated cheese and cottage cheese, season with curry and spread with sour cream. Bake in the oven.



Broccoli with hollandaise (Use frozen broccoli for convenience. Boil until tender. Serve with a hollandaise sauce and sprinkle with toasted almond slivers.)


Spaghetti Puttanesca (Make a sauce from onions, garlic, anchovies, black olives, capers, tomatoes - tinned or fresh - and a little parsley. Serve with parmesan cheese if you like.)
