LEEK AND PRAWN QUICHE

A slightly fresher, lighter meal to break up all that winter comfort food! This leek and prawn quiche is a nice variation on traditional quiches, and pairs perfectly with a green salad. Is anyone else excited that avocados are available at reasonable prices again?! They’re the easiest way to turn a basic salad into an interesting salad (I think so, […]

VIETNAMESE-STYLE BEEF CURRY

This easy beef curry is infused with Vietnamese flavours. Roti might not be the traditional accompaniment, but it’s so good! A great meal for cold evenings (also very good for lunch the next day!). Did you remember my promise from last week for another recipe to use up the lemongrass paste? Well, here it is! I’ll be the first to […]

BACON WRAPPED CHICKEN

A low carb cauliflower mash helps to balance out this indulgent bacon wrapped chicken with creamy sundried tomato pesto sauce. Serve with lightly sautéed greens. This is a pretty versatile meal. Feel free to swap out the cauliflower mash for potato mash or change the sundried tomato pesto for basil pesto. The brussel sprouts aren’t very well disguised, so if you don’t […]

BROWN RICE RISOTTO

This creamy brown rice risotto is oven-baked for maximum simplicity! Full of flavour thanks to the addition of sundried tomatoes, mushrooms, parmesan and pinenuts. Who knew that brown rice could make such a good risotto?! It gives a lovely nutty taste, with the only downside being that it takes quite a bit longer to cook. Cream cheese adds flavour and […]

CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP

A bowl of this comforting chicken noodle soup will go a long way towards lifting your spirits on a cold winter’s day! Packed with a combination of delicious AND nutritious ingredients. The bright yellow colour results from the addition of turmeric. It might be a little “in your face”, but I’m all for squeezing in a few extra heath benefits […]
