Looks delicious Angela, I can recommend the book "Healthy Eating During Chemotherapy", especially if anyone's struggling with eating normally.
I believe recipes are a strange quirk in the world of copyright - it doesn't apply!
FEC75 CYCLE 1 DAY 7
Hello everyone. It has been suggested that I start a thread of recipes which we can actually taste and enjoy whilst going through chemo. I discovered, as many of you probably have, that things don't quite taste so good when on this regime. In fact everything became quite bland. I happened to comment on the "Spring into March chemo" thread that my OH had cooked a few delicious meals which i actually enjoyed.
so, here is the first recipe, and i really hope this will become a great cookery site of EASY/QUICK meals that we or our OH etc can prepare without too much stress and maximum enjoyment. I found this in an MnS magazine and just added the chilli flakes as an extra ingredient. (i hope there's no copyright issues here). Someone tell me if there are please.
1/2 tbsp olive oil
250g cherry tomatoes
1/2 red onion in wedges
1 red pepper in chunks
30g pitted black olives drained
75ml chicken stock (hot)
200g butter beans rinsed
1/2 tbsp red wine vinegar
sprinkle of chilli flakes to taste,
heat oil in oven(gas 7), then add sausages and cook for 10 minutes. Add peppers, olives, onions chilli flakes & tomatoes which have been tossed in a very little oil. Cook 15 minutes. Turn sausages. Add chicken stock & butter beans & cook 5-10 minutes more. pour over red wine vinegar & basil. Serve.
For me, it's enough as it is, but mash potatoes or wholemeal bread to soak up the delicious juices is really nice with it too.
