Sweet and Sour Cheese

(serves about 3-4 people)

2 carrots, sliced
¼ pint vegetable stock or water
12oz can pineapple pieces in syrup
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tsp tomato puree
1 level tsp sugar
2 tblsp vinegar
1 level tblsp cornflour
8 oz cubed cheese (cheddar or mozarella work well)

Method:
Put the carrot in pan with stock. Simmer for about 5 minutes. Add the pineapple, including the syrup, with the garlic, tomato puree and sugar. Blend the vinegar with the cornflour in a small bowl, then stir into the pan slowly. Bring to the boil stirring well, until thickened - this takes about 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat, and stir in the cheese. Serve at once.

A quick and easy light meal suitable for vegetarians. Use rennet-free cheese if you have a strict vegetarian. If serving to meat-eaters, you can use chicken stock instead of vegetable stock. We like this served over rice, with cooked green vegetables or a salad.
