I just remembered this section of our forum for recipes for less people, maybe youíd find something there Chookie and Margaret. Iíll browse it myself when I have some spare time.
https://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=13482.0

I sent Chookie a link to a site with recipes for 1 or 2 (American) so I may as well mention it here too, https://onedishkitchen.com/

I would love to suggest some lovely vegetarian / vegan meals to you, Margaret, but many have cashews.  I will try to sort some options out that the meat eaters also will like.

Are you OK with lentil, beans, etc.?

That's very generous of you Marina.  I eat most vegetables and lentils and beans but I don't like tofu.   I can eat the odd nut occasionally but need to be careful because of diviticulitis, they are ok if they have been finely ground in the tmx and used in a cashew sauce etc.  Thanks again for the thought.

We had the leftover taco mince from last week. (It had been in the freezer!). I made a couple of large flat breads to have with it.

A couple ideas for you, Margaret:

I have made this often and everyone loves it and it is on my list for today Spanish Bean Stew https://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=12391.0

This mushroom side dish is delicious - you may have to hunt around a bit for liquid smoke but  you might find it in a health food shop: https://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=17163.0https://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=17163.0

White bean & mushroom stew - this is from Minimalist Baker - I think you may already follow her blog: https://minimalistbaker.com/cozy-white-bean-mushroom-stew-vegan/

Another great resource is the recipe books from the Revive Cafe in Auckland, NZ. 

I am sure you know this already, but, just in case ... when cooking cashews soak in hot water for as long as possible - I find an overnight soak leaves them a bit slimy so I soak them in a bowl with hot water for an hour or so, rinsing and refreshing with fresh hot water every 1/2 hour or so once it cools down, then into the TMX on 9 or 10 for at least 1 minute to get a nice smooth mix.

Marina, I loved the list that you put together for Mab. The roasted mushrooms reminds me of one that I used to make. Similar ingredients but not baked. I also liked the Mexican Bean recipe but too many carbs for me.
Tonight, grilled fish and veggies.

Marina & Judy, thank you both for the list of recipes.  I had no idea there were so many recipes on the forum 1 or 2 people.   It will take me a while to look through them all but I will certainly check them all out.

We had a beef stir fry tonight with rice.

Mab I searched everywhere for liquid smoke, then I found some in a shop that sold American foods. It was just over $8 for a bottle.

A Quirky Jo recipe - Vegetables with cashews and satay sauce; this might work for you, Margaret.  I have adapted my recipe to tofu which I know you don't like, but if you eat meat that is what the original recipe calls for. https://www.quirkycooking.com.au/2011/01/chicken-and-cashews-with-coconut-satay-sauce-and-coconut-rice/ It makes a huge meal, but is easily frozen if necessary.  The sauce works well with either coriander or parsley.
