A Mexican twist on an Italian favourite! This lightly spiced Mexican bolognese is bulked up with veggies and beans, and topped with plenty of cheese, salad and a dollop of sour cream. Most nights in our household are spent trialling new recipes, but sometimes we just feel like some basic comfort food. Spaghetti bolognese always hits the spot. I didn’t […]
I’ve been looking for a way to add crumbed camembert to a meal and this chicken, crumbed camembert and grape salad is it! A delicious combination of indulgent and healthy. I first attempted to cook the camembert by baking it in the oven. With just a single coat of breadcrumbs, the camembert oozed out everywhere and made a complete mess! […]
Juicy tender pork stuffed mushrooms served with a rocket, and sundried tomato salad are the first meal on this week’s menu. Next up is tomato and basil chicken - a comforting dinner with a moreish side of parmesan crumbed broccoli. Then there's the creamy, cheesy prawn filo pies, paired with a fresh late summer salad. Happy cooking!
The creamy, cheesy filling in these prawn filo pies is so good! Perfect paired with the light, crisp pastry and a flavoursome salad. Placing whole prawns in the pies makes them feel a little more gourmet, and tuna really improves the flavour of the filling without being overly fishy. Royce’s ‘canned fish radar’ is pretty good but I managed to […]
This tomato and basil chicken is served with wholemeal couscous and a very moreish side of parmesan crumbed broccoli. Using cream cheese in both this recipe and the pork stuffed mushrooms means you don’t waste any of the tub of cream cheese. If you’re not cooking this recipe as part of the weekly menu, cream, mascarpone or creme fraiche are […]
Juicy tender mushrooms, stuffed with creamy pork filling and served with a rocket, sundried tomato and pinenut salad. These pork stuffed mushrooms are a really yum reduced carb meal! The substantial meaty mushrooms will fill you up while providing plenty of good nutrition. If you choose mushrooms with a bit of a lip around the outside, the filling should stay […]
Beef, macadamia and kumara crisp salads are a quick and easy meal to start off the week. Next is satay chicken skewers - a homemade version of the popular Thai entrée, turned into a full meal. Then, enjoy a moreish vegetarian dinner of tandoori chickpea pizzas, using fluffy naan bread for the base.
Indian-spiced tandoori chickpea pizzas are a moreish vegetarian meal. Naan bread provides a sturdy base for all the toppings. Don’t forget a dollop of yoghurt and chutney – this finishes the pizzas off perfectly! I was really pleased at how well the naan bread worked as a pizza base. I used naan from the chilled section which seems to be […]
