Why not make (or get your mum or better half instead) this one? Lord Woolton, the Minister of Food, urged people to be creative in their cooking with rationed food, to use more vegetables, particularly potatoes. He even had a recipe named after him: Lord Woolton Pie Ingredients 1 lb (454g) potatoes1 lb (454g) cauliflower 1 lb (454g) swedes1 lb (454g) carrots 3 or 4 spring onions 1 teaspoon of vegetable extract 1 tablespoon of oatmeal Parsley Wholemeal pastry Method Dice the potatoes, cauliflower, swedes and carrots, slice the onions and cook all with the vegetable extract and oatmeal for 10 minutes with just enough water to cover. Allow it to cool, then put in a pie dish, sprinkle with chopped parsley and cover with wholemeal pastry. Bake in a moderate oven until the pastry is nicely brown and serve hot with gravy. It really doesn't sound too bad for wartime grub on the ration!
