Lamb stuffed eggplant is a lower carb meal full of punchy flavours. Eggplant halves are stuffed with Moroccan-flavoured lamb mince, topped with cheese and pinenuts, then baked until golden.

These easy chicken and spinach crepes are a great alternative to wraps. The recipe makes quite a large quantity, so could easily serve up to 6 people, depending on how hungry you are! Surprisingly, you can’t even taste the wholemeal flour in the crepes, so I highly recommend using it if you have some on hand. The salad ingredients can […]

These Mexican-style pizzas are more Tex-Mex than authentic Mexican, but super tasty anyway! They’re really easy to prepare too. The wraps make a nice light alternative to regular pizza bases, and doubling them up means the base isn’t too thin. You can use your favourite brand of wraps. I used Farrah’s – they have a great range of new flavours […]
