I got these in a hellofresh box and now just do them myself quite a lot as they're so tasty:
Chicken with spicy (ish) lentils:
Chop up one carrot, one leek, one red chilli and two pieces of celery along with some onion and fry them off in a pan. After they've softened add a can of drained green lentils, some chopped sage leaves, thyme leaves and a chicken stock cube with a dash of water and let it simmer.
While doing this fry two chicken breasts in another pan.
Once the veg has thickened stir in two tablespoons of creme fraiche, add salt and pepper to taste then the chicken.
Serves two with the above quantities.
Or - chorizo and aubergine tagliatelle.
Fry an onion and garlic in a large pan. Once softened add in a pack of diced chorizo and a teaspoon of chilli seeds. After 5 mins add in a can of chopped tomatoes, some sun dried tomatoes and salt and pepper to taste. Add a bit of sugar to lift the tomato flavour.
Meanwhile grill one aubergine cut into large chunks and drizzled in oil and salt. Also cook enough tagliatelle for two. Once ready add both to the sauce mix. Nom! Also makes two portions.
