I was very angry at myself for letting things slip so much yesterday and stomped into the kitchen where I found the potato and carrot I had started to prepare for yesterday's dinner (and popped in the fridge, fortunately, as it had been so hot). I thought 'I'm not wasting those' and set to to make the recipe anyway to chill and have tomorrow evening. I can't have it this evening as I have a vegetarian eating with me and it's not vegetarian.
Anyway, I banged around. still in a right temper and what came out was really delicious so I'm sharing the link and what I changed - and I'm calming down now!
Here's the link.
I reduced the quantities down because I wanted a portion for one.
I missed out the butter because I was using some chorizo I have to use up as well as some bacon bits so I dry fried the chorizo until the oil came out and then added the leeks and bacon.
Instead of using flour to thicken, I added the apple juice, heated to simmering, then used thickening granules (which is basically potato flour) and added the milk last.
I added a bit of marigold bouillon powder.
That's as far as I got. It's now cooling and I will cover and chill before reheating in the microwave, spraying with oil and grilling as per the last sentence in the recipe.
It's very, very tasty! Good old Mary.
