VIETNAMESE CHICKEN CREPES

These Vietnamese chicken crepes are a great meal for any season. The easy homemade crepes are stuffed full of chicken, veggies, peanuts and flavoursome hoisin sauce. This is one of those meals where you can put all the different ingredients on the table and let everyone assemble their own. Otherwise, if you try to assemble 8-10 crepes at once, you […]

BEEF SATAY NOODLES

With plenty of delicious, creamy sauce, these beef satay noodles are guaranteed to go down a treat. Stir fries are the perfect weeknight meal – they’re quick, use only one pan and can be eaten with just a fork. Anything satay is a definite favourite of mine! I didn’t want to use only part of a can of coconut milk, […]

BACON WRAPPED FISH

This tasty bacon wrapped fish is baked on creamy leeks and served on a mixed veggie mash. Just as it was starting to feel like spring was well underway, the cold, windy and rainy days seem to have made a reappearance (in Auckland, anyway). So back into comfort food it is! Fish (or chicken), bacon and leeks make a great […]

Buddha bowls, also known as nourish bowls, macro bowls, bliss bowls (the list goes on!), are basically colourful bowls of wholegrain carbs, protein and plenty of veggies. This version features pan fried haloumi, a big dollop of hummus […]

MINI BACON AND EGG PIES

I’m not sure which part of this meal I like better – the mini bacon and egg pies, or the broccoli Caesar salad! Filo pastry offers a lighter alternative to your standard bacon and egg pie. Caesar salad and bacon and egg pie are the perfect pairing, given you often find bacon and eggs in Caesar salads anyway. If I […]

CHICKEN BURGER STACKS

Crispy chicken, cheese, plenty of fresh salad, tomato relish and mayo, sandwiched together with golden kumara rounds. These chicken burger stacks are so so good! I’ve had lots of good feedback on my beef burger stacks, so thought it might be time for a chicken version! These chicken burger stacks are just like a regular chicken burger, but instead of […]
