Gluten Free Coriander & Garlic FlatbreadsThis is the Gluten Free recipe but feel free to us plain white flour if you prefer. Idea to serve with a curry as a home made Naan alternative.
Gluten Free Flour
Baking Powder
Salt Greek style Yoghurt
1 clove of Garlic grated
1 Tablespoon of dried Coriander
Vegetable Oil
(1) Mix approximately equal amounts of Flour and Greek style Yoghurt and add the remaining ingredients.
(2) Mix thoroughly until you have a reasonably stiff dough.
(3) If needed add a little water to make the mixture more workable. Alternatively add extra Flour if the dough is too wet.
(4) On a floured surface form into discs about the size of your hand and about 5mm thick.
(5) Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry gently. Turn once so that your Flatbreads are golden brown on both sides.
Camp Salami and Potato FrittataStrangely we found a pile of rather elderly eggs in the wood which had been dumped. Never look a gift horse in the mouth.
4 thin Salami sticks.
4 Egg 
300ml Semi skimmed Milk
4 medium sized Potatoes, peeled
1 Onion
2 cloves of Garlic
100g of grated Cheese
Salt and Pepper 
Vegetable oil
(1) Parboil the Potatoes until they are soft enough to slice but not falling apart. Drain and set aside.
(2) Cut the Salimi stick in 1cm pieces.
(3) Whisk the Eggs, Milk, half of the grated Cheese, salt and Pepper.
(4) Slice the Onion, grate the Garlic and fry gently until the Onion is softened. Take off the heat.
(5) Slice the Potatoes.
(6) Add a little more Oil to the pan and place over a medium heat.
(7) Mix all the ingredients except the remaining grated Cheese and fry gently until it is cooked half way up from the bottom.
(8) If you have a grill heat it and place the Frittata on the top shelf to complete cooking. If not carefully flip it over in the pan.
(9) Sprinkle the remaining grated Cheese over the top and allow to melt slightly.
We garnished ours with wild Sorrel found in the meadows near the tent. Clearly not essential! 
Cane Toad In The HoleWhy Cane Toad? Well they are pretty big and so is this monster! You can buy a Yorkshire pudding mix from most supermarkets for less than 50p and all you need to do is add a couple of eggs and water. Just make sure your oil is smoking hot! Sue's Gluten Free batter mix is below.
6 Pork and Leak sausages (GF versions are available and no more expensive)
For the GF batter mix:-
140g of GF plain flour
50g of Cornflour
140ml of semi skimmed Milk
3 Eggs
A dash of cold water
Sat & Pepper
Vegetable oil
(1) In a frying pan fry your sausages.
(2) Preheat the oven to 220C.
(3) Place vegetable oil in a baking tray and heat until smoking hot.
(4) Add the Eggs to the Milk and whisk.
(5) Mix the GF Flour and Cornflour and season with Salt and Pepper.
(6) Add the Flour mix a little at a time to the Egg and Milk mix whisking it as you go.
(7) You should aim for a smooth runny texture.
(8) Add straight to the hot Oil and add your fried sausages hot to the batter.
(9) Place on the top shelf of the oven for about 30 minutes. Until the Yorkshire Pudding has risen and golden brown.
We like this with Mustard mashed Potato, Cabbage, batoned Carrots and Onion gravy, but the vegetables are entirely up to you.
Green Tomato and Apple ChutneyThere were quite a number of green tomatoes in the community garden which were not likely to riped and we found some wind-fall apples. This green tomato and apple chutney is the perfect combination of sweet and savoury and works well with a curry.
450g (1 lb) green tomatoes, chopped
450g (1 lb) onions, minced
225g (1/2 lb) apples, cored and chopped
450g (1 lb) brown sugar
55g (2 oz) salt
300ml (1/2 pt) spirit vinegar
1 teaspoon whole Black Peppercorns
(1) Combine all of the ingredients in a large saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer for 2 hours, stirring occasionally, until the chutney has cooked down and thickened.
(2) While the chutney is still hot, ladle into sterilised jars, seal tightly and leave undisturbed overnight to set. Store in a cool dark place until ready to use.
Chicken Wings & Thighs recipe“Basically butchery of any sort is a reductive cost incremental process.” Easy for my old colleague Geoff the butcher to say! What he actually meant was the more time and effort required in the butchery process, the more you have to charge for the end result. So generally with Chicken for example, you are better buying the full bird and cutting it yourself.
However sometimes in the reductions you find a little surprise. These Wings & Thighs cost us 89p! It's a while ago when we were still living in the tent and had very limited resources, but they made a great meal at very little cost.
1 box of Chicken Wings and Thighs
1 Onion
6 Mushrooms
Vegetables – Whatever you have
Gravy mix (We use Bisto Best as it's Gluten free)
(1) Chop the Onions and Mushrooms.
(2) Add the Onions and Mushrooms to a pan of water and add 3 table spoons of gravy powder.
(3) Bring the gravy to the boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer until the Onions and Mushrooms have softened. Remove from the heat.
(4) Place the Chicken pieces in a pan of water and broil with a little salt and pepper until they are cooked. Remove from the heat, drain and cover.
(5) Slice or chop your vegetables and boil in salted water until tender.
(6) Add the Chicken to the gravy and gently reheat.
(7) Serve the Chicken over the vegetables.
A quick and easy nutritious family meal.
