SUPER GREEN SOUP

This super green soup is loaded with goodness to help fight winter ills and chills. The homemade cornbread is the true star of the show though! With spring fast approaching, I thought I had better get one more soup recipe in before the weather becomes too warm. I’ll admit it’s not the most exciting soup I’ve ever made, but it’s […]

TERIYAKI CHICKEN NOODLES

These teriyaki chicken noodles feature soba noodles and plenty of veggies, plus peanuts and sesame seeds for extra crunch. It’s a noodle salad really, but one that’s warming enough for winter 😊 This definitely isn’t the prettiest of meals, with red cabbage adding a purple tinge to the whole dish! You can reduce this, and also help eliminate any bitterness, […]

HOMEMADE HAMBURGER HELPER

Hamburger helper is a popular boxed pasta in the United States. Think cheeseburger meets macaroni cheese! Here’s an easy homemade version. This meal is made quickly in just one pot, and is the perfect kid-friendly comfort food. There are plenty of veggies hidden within the dish, so I’ve skipped the side salad. Grab a generous bowl-full, put your feet up […]

TUNA FISH CAKES

Golden, crispy tuna fish cakes with potato wedges, a green salad and plenty of yoghurt dipping sauce – yum! This meal really packs a flavour punch, thanks to the tuna, gherkins, olives and feta. It’s such a great combination! If canned tuna isn’t your thing, there are plenty of other options you can try. Check out the recipe notes for […]

CHICKEN MASSAMAN CURRY

This chicken massaman curry is creamy, not too spicy and features moreish dry roasted peanuts. Thai massaman curry is a firm favourite in our household. It’s a bit milder than some of the other Thai curries, and is great with beef, chicken or even salmon. I’ve gone the slightly less indulgent route for this chicken version, with extra veggies in […]
