Unbarbecued Spaghetti

Now to my mind this is a classic barbecue sauce recipe http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/1526/barbecue-sauce

This is my 1970s cookbook version...kind of groovy and not the remotest hint of barbecue about it I would argue. However, it's a mighty fine quick fix veggie offering for those evenings when the cooking monster is rampaging around the kitchen and wanting to do anything but cook. This is one of my go-to favourites when I need to get a meal on the table and Mr GBT is very sensibly ignoring my manipulative whinings [he does plenty of cooking believe you me!]

My only observation is you might like to heed the amount of curry powder depending on your personal taste and strength of said item!

Fry a chopped onion until golden. Add to it 1-2 tbsp of curry powder and fry briefly. Then stir in 2tbsp peanut butter, 2tsp tomato puree, 1/2 pint of vegetable stock and seasoning. Bring to the boil and then simmer for 15 mins. Meanwhile cook 3oz spaghetti per person- I add in a goodly amount of frozen sweetcorn or peas to it. When all cooked combine the pasta with the sauce. It suggests serving it with sausages or beefburgers. I find it makes a rather tasty meal in its own right.

  1. That sounds interesting! I hate BBQ flavouring so I'm delighted there's nothing smoky in there. I'll definitely give it a try, perfect for one of those days when there's nothing in but out of date pasta and a festering onion! x

    1. Yes definitely for one of those Mother Hubbard days. I'm sure it could be pimped up! Hope you enjoy itx

  2. An unusual concoction but worth investigating, I'm a veggie whimper and do the majority of the cooking so our meals are vegetarian with the occasional nod to the meativours, now my Eldest son has decided to join the ranks of veggidom, I can see him actually enjoying the usual combination, will make it for him this weekend and report back!

    1. Always worth a try even if you don't like it. It's a hot satay sauce really.

  3. Wow, that sounds really tasty. I think I'll tuck that away for the week in December when I have a houseful and need the budget to stretch.
