I check out the fridge the night before to create a 'use it up' meal. Tonight, I found 6 medium carrots, a 2" chunk of butternut squash. Elsewhere I had one onion, some chillies in a jar, a tin of tomatoes and a tin of red kidney beans, a pork and a lemb stockcube, tomato puree and some Quorn mince.

After 25 minutes, I added 1/2 a packet of Quorn mince from the freezer, both stock cubes and cooked everything for another 15 minutes. Finally, the stock cubes and 1/3rd tube of tomato puree were added:
