Bovril Boogie

It’s past ten at night and I’m hungry. But too lazy to make an elaborate meal. The bottle of Bovril catches my attention when I open the cupboard door in the kitchen.

Oh yes, Bovril Pasta.

Remember, Marmite Power? This is a brilliant alternative.

  • 1 portion of pasta
  • 1 thumb-sized knob of butter
  • 2 shallots, sliced finely
  • 2 inches of carrot, sliced into small inch-long pieces
  • 1 small pinch of dried basil
  • 1 small pinch of ground coriander
  • 1 dash of black pepper
  • half tbsp of Bovril
  1. While the pasta is cooking away in a pot of water, melt the butter in a saucepan.
  2. Toss in the carrots and shallots, and cook till they’re done.
  3. Add in the basil, ground coriander and black pepper.
  4. Steal a ladle full of the water from the pasta pot and add to the saucepan.
  5. Stir in the Bovril and lower the heat. Let it simmer.
  6. Once the pasta is cooked till al dente, drain briefly and add to the sauce. Mix thoroughly and serve.
  7. If you’re greedy like me, have it with a slice of honey baked ham. Happy nights.
