Mixed vegetables (minestrone)
My second post of the year, and a bit tongue in cheek, but I am on track to publish posts on a weekly basis from now on.
The full title of this dish is bastonici di filetti di merluzzo con verdure miste e pan Bauletto integrale. It is a simple dish to prepare and is ready to eat within just fifteen minutes, though I allowed a little extra time (perhaps 30 minutes) while I attended a video call with my wife).
Anyone reading this with a bit of Italian language knowledge may be a little bit intrigued by this post but all will be revealed quite quickly. First of all I need to say that it is a non-veg / non-vegan meal in view of the fish content.
Here is where things start to become clear … the ingredients:
– bastonici de filetti di merluzzo – I took four
– verdure miste surgelata – a big handful
– pan Bauletto integrale – two slices
– four cod fish fingers
– frozen mixed veg
– two slices of wholemeal bread
Put olive oil in a pan and heat.
Add the fish fingers and cook for two minutes, turn over the fish fingers and cook for a further two minutes. Make space in the pan and add the mixed veg. I stirred them a bit to ensure they were thoroughly heated then placed the fish fingers on top to avoid over-cooking the fish.
Place on a plate. Put a fish finger or two on a slice of bread with some of the vegetables then fold and eat. The size of the slices of bread will determine how many fish fingers can be accommodated.
