EGGPLANT, BACON AND HALOUMI SALAD

Don’t be fooled by the word ‘salad’ – this cheesy eggplant, bacon and haloumi salad is loaded with delicious ingredients and served with a creamy yoghurt dressing and warm garlic bread. Coating the eggplant slices in a mixture of egg and parmesan is quite a different way to cook eggplant (credit to mum for this one). They taste a little […]

BUDGET BEEF WELLINGTON

This budget beef wellington uses a less expensive cut of steak and is served deconstructed, making it quick and easy to prepare. Accompanied with veggies and simple roast potatoes, it’s a tasty weeknight meal. While I love a proper beef wellington, and eye fillet steak is delicious, I don’t feel like I can justify it for a regular weeknight meal! […]

Start the week off with salt and pepper fish on roti. It’s a delicious, filling meal. Next up is lamb and pesto pasta - super quick and easy, it’s like a cheats version of lasagne.

MEDITERRANEAN ROAST CHICKEN

An easier version of a full roast meal. This Mediterranean roast chicken uses butterflied chicken for quicker cooking, and is served with roast kumara mixed into a tasty salad. I like to cook the kumara pieces on the same tray as the chicken, to infuse flavour (and a bit of fat!) into them. They don’t go as crisp this way […]

LAMB AND PESTO PASTA

This lamb and pesto pasta dish is full of really yummy ingredients, including some hidden veggies. It’s super quick and easy to make. If you haven’t heard of ‘wide lasagne’ before, have a look in the dried pasta section of the supermarket. Rather than lasagne sheets, it’s smaller pieces of pasta with frilly edges. Layering the pasta together with the […]

SALT AND PEPPER FISH ON ROTI

A variation on fish tacos, this salt and pepper fish on roti makes a delicious, filling meal. Wrap them up like a kebab, eat with your hands and it will feel like you’re treating yourself to takeaways! If you’re not too keen on seafood, the fish can easily be swapped for chicken. I like to lightly cook the cabbage – […]

THAI YELLOW CURRY

Thai yellow curry is mild and creamy – a curry that the whole family will enjoy. This vegetarian version includes paneer, a fresh white cheese that is like a less salty version of haloumi. A couple of weeks ago I shared a satay chicken skewers recipe which featured yellow curry paste, with a promise to share another recipe in a […]
