One day I would love to have my own farm,have cows,a chicken coop,pigs the whole shebang with designer boots and sunglasses to match.
I imagine myself rising up before cock-crow to make sure my cows which will all have cute names are getting milked as they listen to Mozart or Bach.I hear music calms them and makes them let down more milk…ahem..
For the longest time i have not seen a tub of cream on the supermarket shelf of the area i live in for some time,remember the milk crisis in Kenya ..?
Well it seems its over because all over sudden i ave seen sour cream,fresh cream even butter on the supermarket shelves and milk prices went down.
This definitely called for celebration and since i cannot pop champagne for now i bought myself fresh cream, whole 250 ml can,what can i do with it.
I made some creamy vegetable stew that we had with coconut rice and my kids loved it.
Here is the recipe.
500 grammes chopped mixed vegetables(green peas,french beans,carrots and sweet corn)
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 medium-sized grated carrots
2 medium-sized ripe tomatoes
1 level tablespoon tomato paste
a dash of black pepper and salt to taste
2 tablespoons fresh cream.
I1.n a saucepan fry the onions till soft ,add the 1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic let it fry on low heat for 30 seconds then add the grated carrots and tomatoes fry for a minute,add tomato paste let cook for a minute then add the rest of the vegetables.
2.Add salt and black pepper to taste and cover the pan and leave to cook on medium high heat for 5 minutes.
3.Add just enough water to cover the bottom of the pan let cook for a further 3 minutes let it simmer,then add the 2 tablespoons of cream and stir continuously till it melts into the stew and there are no lumps left then turn off heat.
Great with some savoury or coconut rice or chapati.
