Dam Buster spread

A potato, roughly chopped,
Some Lentils (I've got Puy in the house at the minute)
Prunes, chopped up small (1 or 2)
Olive oil (extra virgin hopefully)

Simmer the potato, lentils and prune together till the potato and lentils are soft. Drain and whizz up with a blender or food processor or whatever. A bit like making hummous really.

Add some olive oil for taste and to make the consistency a little more spread like.

Spread on toast, rice cake or whatever the little one likes to eat. Wait a few hours for the explosion.

Inspired by suggestions on the poo thread, tried after Boy was bunged up for five days - seems to have done the trick. Hooray!

When drunk i have been known to play the 'Dam Busters' game...

You have to invert hands and place over your eyes in goggle stylie and sing the tune loudly, whilst clutching a handful of coins (bombs) betwixt your buttocks (fully clothed of course!). You then have to proceed towards a bowl placed a few metres ahead of you and not drop the bombs. Only when you reach the bowl, do you release the bombs and score points for the number you get in the bowl!!!!!

I have to say I'm rather good at it! :wink:

Should this be something you admit to?

I know this is an'old' post - but would just like to say that my lo LOVES this. She sucks it off the toast and basically acts like a puree baby - although i wouldn't dare give it on a spoon as it may have explosive results.

She really turned her nose up at my organic shepherds pie - but wolfs this down - which is lucky as i made LOADS and froze it.

another whole bowlful today . . .

Quite a bit went up her nose - it is a definite 'before bathtime' food.

I just made some of this for Joe and he loved it but just wanted to check, is it supposed to be all gloopy & sticky or did I do something wrong?? I used red lentils by the way.

Im waiting with baited breath for the end result!

It was quite sticky for us - but dries very flaky!

Perhaps I needed to add more prunes, we didnt have an end result and he ate it at 4pm!

Hrmm, I hope it doesnt come out 'tother end during the night...... :scream

Can I ask... do you start with dried lentils or canned? I have both on hand, but the dried ones obviously require A LOT more work.

I made this last week - fab stuff, and Babydoll seemed to love the taste of it.

Here's what I did; it takes 20 mins to cook potatos and 30 mins to cook lentils. So I washed some dried lentils, put them on to boil for 10 mins, turned the pan down to a simmer and put into the same pan the potato I had peeled and chopped during this time. Didn't really seem to take more than a couple of minutes more than canned lentils. I only had dried lentils in (they look so much prettier in a jar on the shelf than canned ones :D )
