Here’s how to justify having sausage rolls for dinner: make a homemade version with added veggies and serve with a big spring slaw! These pork, apple and cheddar sausage rolls are very moreish. The inspiration for this slaw recipe comes from my Auntie Kerri – she made it for dinner one night when I was visiting her and my uncle […]
Beef and broccoli stir fry is a popular Chinese dish. With its rich yet mild sauce it’s a great family-friendly meal. As per usual, I’ve snuck in a few extra veggies! I would use rump steak if you can. I know it’s quite a lot more effort than using pre-cut beef stir fry, but you’ll be rewarded with tender beef […]
You won’t notice the lack of meat in these delicious vegetarian stuffed pasta shells. Fecotta makes a yummy alternative to ricotta, if you can find it in your local supermarket. I’ve just realised this is the third week in a row I’ve included a recipe with the word ‘stuffed’ in the title! Last week we had spinach and feta stuffed […]
For a really yummy, lower carb dinner, chicken caesar burger bowls with pickled red onion and homemade croutons are hard to beat. The second meal - seafood chowder in homemade bread bowls - is moreishly good. Miso paste really helps to balance the flavours. Finish the week off with spinach and feta stuffed lamb with a delicious minty dressing.

If you can’t find a butterflied lamb leg, you could use individual lamb steaks instead, folded in half and secured with a toothpick to enclose the spinach and feta filling. […]
I love a good seafood chowder! Serving it in bread bowls makes for a much more exciting meal. Umami-filled miso paste is a key ingredient – it adds depth and delicious savoury flavour to the chowder, really taking it up a notch. (+ I promised a while ago that I would give you some more recipes to use up your […]
These chicken caesar burger bowls are a jazzed up version of caesar salad. I’ve thrown in a few extra veggies for more nutrition and flavour. This is a really yummy, lower carb dinner. If you can’t be bothered making the burger patties you could wrap chicken tenders in bacon instead. For bigger appetites, serve with oven-baked fries. CHICKEN CAESAR […]
Golden, crunchy stuffed beef schnitzel oozing with ham and cheese is a scrumptious way to kick off the week. Follow it up with a warm winter salad - an irresistible vegetarian combo of haloumi, roasted mushrooms and pesto. The easy chicken and leek pie is a deconstructed version for quicker cooking, with kumara rounds and a cheesy pastry topper.
