BUDDHA BOWLS

These easy buddha bowls are tasty and nutritious. Featuring one of my favourite vegetarian proteins (haloumi) and a creamy avocado dressing. Yum! 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 […]

PRAWN TACOS

These prawn tacos are SO quick and easy. Featuring delicious crispy prawns, Asian slaw and avocado, they’re the perfect dinner for busy weeknights. I don’t often use pre-prepared salads and dressing mixes, mostly because I prefer to make my own dressings without all the additives. But with this week’s theme of quick and easy, I thought I’d give one a […]

CHILLI CON CARNE

Chilli con carne is such a popular meal – I thought it was about time it featured in one of the weekly menus! Serve on rice and load up with all the toppings. Chilli con carne is made in the same way as bolognese sauce, though I’d say this is even easier because you don’t have to boil the pasta […]

EASY CHICKEN FETTUCCINE

An indulgent creamy chicken fettuccine with a few added veggies to make it a little more suitable for weeknights! Lite cream cheese works really well as an alternative to cream in many savoury recipes. It’s lower in kilojoules and has more flavour too. Also great in anything mashed (try this pan fried fish)! This is a really quick and easy […]
