Text Me, Yeah? Our Last Minute Dinner Recipe

I am heading off to a festival for the next few days with my family and I love it.  You have to accept that washing etc will be a little different than you would normally go with but I roll with it and just enjoy my time with our kids.  I count myself lucky as I like my kids as well as love them.

This recipe is my fail save recipe to cook down the hut when the sun is starting to set and we have to decide to whether we head for home or stay for tea.  If our kids aren’t with us they are either at their Saturday job or kicking a football about with their mates in one of the two parks by our hut.  They are only a text away.   The dish only takes about 15 minutes to cook but I text them to say it’s ready in 10 minutes less than that so that they turn up just as it’s ready to serve.   I speak teenage.

Our quick and easy dinner by Beachhutcook

Text Me Dinner (serves 4)

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 small onion, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tsp mixed dried herbs

400g tin tomatoes

2 tablespoon tomato puree

1 heaped teaspoon marigold bullion or half a regular stock cube

1 glass of wine (red or white whatever is opened)

2 tablespoon tomato puree

300g kabanos (or equivalent, I’ve used chorizo before and worked a treat)

Heat the oil and fry the onion on medium heat until softened, say about 4 minutes.  Add the garlic and cook for a few more minutes and then add the herbs, tomatoes bringing everything to a good sizzle.  Then add the remaining ingredients giving everything a good stir.  Cook for a further 10 minutes until it’ screaming eat me.  That’s it.

You could serve this is rice, pasta even chips from the chip shop but we have it with lots of chunky bread, teenage chatter and then a game of stone throwing.  My boys are sharp shooters.
