Notes

TIPS: Stock pots are small containers of concentrated stock (a liquid version of a stock cube). Find them in the stock aisle of most major supermarkets. If unavailable, use enough stock cubes or powder to make 1.5 litres (6 cups) stock. Suitable for leftovers. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. Or freeze for up to 1 month. Add it: 2 tbs basil pesto dolloped to serve. Swap it: Pasta for 1 cup (170g) canned cannellini beans (rinsed. drained).
