SHOPPING LIST – MENU 69 CHICKEN STROGANOFF  |  LAMB SAMOSAS  |  VEGETARIAN COTTAGE PIE
July 25, 2019

VEGETARIAN COTTAGE PIE

This vegetarian cottage pie is hearty and nutritious. A great meatless alternative to regular cottage pie, guaranteed to fill hungry tummies.  While definitely not lacking in flavour, this meal probably wouldn’t trick meat lovers into thinking they were eating a regular cottage pie! It didn’t work with Royce, unfortunately. If you’re trying to transition to eating more plant-based meals (but […]

LAMB SAMOSAS

These lamb samosas are a little fiddly to assemble, but well worth the effort! A really delicious meal full of yummy flavours. Have you made samosas before? This recipe was my first attempt, and we enjoyed them so much that I’m already thinking up other versions to create! Get someone to help you out with putting the samosas together if […]

CHICKEN STROGANOFF

A simple twist on classic beef stroganoff, this easy chicken stroganoff makes a rich and satisfying dinner. Feel free to switch out the carbs – pasta, rice and mashed potato will all work! For a reduced carb option, cauliflower mash is great too. I’ve used yoghurt rather than the traditional sour cream, partly to make the meal a little lighter, […]

July 18, 2019

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 […]

Three Hawaiian hot dogs.

MENU 67

The middle of winter calls for a few cosy, warming meals. First on the menu is chicken noodle soup - a great way to lift your spirits! Hawaiian hot dogs are up next. They couldn’t be quicker or easier. Finish the week with creamy brown rice risotto. It’s oven-baked for simplicity and loaded with yummy flavours.
