Basically whatever you have in the fridge…. some things I usually use are:
Pasta /rice – about a 1/2 cup of rice or 1 cup small pasta
herbs and spices
Tomato paste (1/2 small tin)
Wholegrain mustard (about 1ts)
meat – chicken, beef, sausages.. whatever I have
1). Chop the vegetables and meat into bite sized pieces.
2). In a large casserole dish put all the ingredients in – except the last 3 and mix well.
3). In a coffee mug, mix about 2 teaspoons of cornflour and about 1-2 tablespoons of gravy powder with about 1/2 cup of water. Mix well. Add about 2 tablespoons of milk powder, stir well and add to the casserole dish.
4). Top up with water to cover the ingredients. Put the lid on and place in an oven at about 150C for a good 2 hours. Keep stirring it every 15 mins or so, to make sure it doesn’t stick. You can cook it on the stove top in a saucepan if you wish
If you are in a hurry, fry the meat first, and cut the vegetables (like the pumpkin, carrot and potato) into smaller pieces, and it will cook quicker.
Or you could do this in a slow cooker instead of the oven
