Firstly, I made a big vat of Nigella's Vegetables in Vegetable Sauce (Low Fat chapter of How to Eat, and then her Vegetable Soup (Basics etc. chapter of the same book), and finally, a half-quantity of her Happiness Soup from Forever Summer, subsituting green zucchini for the yellow ones and brown rice for the basmati. (So yes, not quite as "happy" as the original version of the soup, but good nonetheless). I also cooked up a batch of brown rice for me to pick at over the week. Mmm... brown rice.
