Counting on …. Day 340

6th October 2022

According to Chatham House ‘a 15% reduction in pig and chicken consumption across the EU would have nullified the global grain shortage caused by the War in Ukraine.’ Eating less meat and dairy produce reduces demand for grain and other animal fodder, allowing production to be redirected to feeding people.  

Aubergine with almonds

Chopped a couple of cloves of garlic and half an onion. Fry together with a chopped carrot and an aubergine, allowing the ingredients to cook and soften. 

Add 50g of chopped or roughly ground Spanish almonds.

Add a little miso sauce, a little tahini and enough water to bind into a sauce. 

Meanwhile cook some pasta  and (separately) fry a couple of portobello mushrooms.

This serves 2.
