Not much fresh food left post-Christmas. 250g closed-cup mushrooms and three or four beetroot which come in a sealed punnet (normally used by us in sandwiches). Also available, 2 or three green and red chillis and plenty of frozen vegetables.

What main course would you consider with that motley lot?

I'd start by slicing and roasting/baking the beetroot. It is one of my favourite flavour profiles.

Is there any onion/garlic/chive/leek (fresh/frozen or dried)?

What frozen veggies?

roast the peppers/mushrooms and beets. The mushrooms will get fairly meaty when roasted


a different take

Thanks ehbeth for going to all that trouble. Ended up baking a pie with everything to hand. I'm told the pastry was short-crust. Frozen veg was peas, carrots and broccoli. Fried up the mushrooms in rapeseed oil before adding them to the mix along with the beetroot and half an onion that was found lying around. Glazed the lid with a beaten egg and baked for just over an hour at 170 degrees. Came out perfect.

Will definitely try at least one of those recipes you provided next weekend.

all of those veggies would have been good roasted Smile and then in a pie or not

my first instinct with most veggies is roasting - really intensifies their flavours
