Permaculture Cottage ~ Recipes, Fairies and The Ways of Old

The storm continues to rage. Walking Jack this morning, I was pulled down the road by an over-enthusiastic dog and blown back home by the gale force wind. It was brilliant and energizing and really uplifting!

A Lovely, Tasty, Hot Recipe for a Cold Autumn Day…

Vegan Chilli

  • 4 cloves of garlic  (finely chopped)
  • (1 onion (diced)
  • 2 large cans of chopped tomatoes
  • 250mls passata tomato
  • 500g cooked  red kidney beans
  • 3 tbsps of olive oil
  • 3 tbsps of chilli powder
  • seasoning
  • 4 tablespoons tomato puree

Fry the onion, oil, garlic. Add tomato puree and fry another 2 minutes. Add chilli powder and fry a further 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, passata and beans…let it cook for about 20-30minutes. Add sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste! Yummy…serve on a bed of wholegrain rice, with green salad and fresh deliciou bread…STOP DROOLING!

A Simple Idea to STOP That Draft…

You will need a staple gun or hammer and tacks. Cut a strip of material the width of the door and about 20-30cms deep. Fold and tack to the bottom of the door, with the folded side just touching the floor. Now you are draft free!

And…Fairies…
