Vegan satay kumara and roast chickpea salad.

MENU 103

Start the week with a meatless Monday satay kumara salad. It tastes like a salad you would get at a café. Next up is a pearl couscous risotto with creamy mushrooms and juicy steak. Much easier than regular risotto! Finish the week with smoked chicken quiche. You can't go wrong with the combination of chicken, brie and cranberry!

SMOKED CHICKEN QUICHE

Smoked chicken quiche with cranberry, brie and pine nuts – yum!! This meal makes a delicious weeknight dinner or weekend lunch. Serve with a fresh green salad. You can’t really go wrong with the combination of chicken, brie (or camembert) and cranberry, can you? It’s great on a pizza, delicious in a pie, and just as yummy in this quiche! […]

PEARL COUSCOUS RISOTTO

This pearl couscous risotto with mushrooms is wonderfully flavoursome and creamy. Best of all, it doesn’t require the constant stirring that regular risotto does! Serve with juicy steak and plenty of greens. I could eat pearl couscous every week, it’s so good – do you agree? I’ll definitely be using it to make risotto again. Between this and my oven […]

LAMB PASTITSIO

Pastitsio – yum! This well-loved Greek pasta dish is similar to both moussaka and lasagne. Lamb is the more traditional ingredient but you can use beef mince if you prefer. If you enjoy lasagne but feel like trying something a bit different, pastitsio is a great alternative. It’s warm and comforting, and lightened up with a crisp side salad.   […]

TUNA SALAD SUSHI BOWLS

These tuna salad sushi bowls are a great (and easy!) alternative to homemade sushi. Plus they have the added bonus of lots more veggies! Sushi is probably the only takeout food I’ve missed during the Covid-19 lockdown. We usually either eat out or have takeaways once a week and, quite surprisingly, I haven’t missed that at all. I’ve been able […]
