Food, Glorious Food

08 Apr 2017

You know that part of Oliver! when he goes up and asks for more food and then they all sing about ‘food, glorious food’? If not, get yourself to a theatre asap.

Live Below the Line can be a bit like Oliver! - either you’ll be asking ‘can I have some more please’ or you’ll be singing about your glorious food and recipe choices. Today, with the help of LBL participants, I’m here to help you do the latter.

That’s right, today’s blog is chock-a-block full of favourite participants recipes from past years!

Chicken Noodle Soup with Dumplings

- 1 packet of chicken noodle soup
- 1 1/4 cups of flour
- 60g butter
- Half cup milk

Crumble the flour and butter together. Add milk and mixed until combined. Pinch off bits of dough and roll into small balls. Add the dough balls to the boiling soup and cook until they double in size

Pumpkin Risotto

- Cooke 1/2 cup of rice in stock until it's soggy
