Satay chicken skewers are one of my favourite entrées when we go out to eat Thai food. This homemade version tastes very similar, but is turned into a full meal with the addition of rice and greens. Juicy chicken skewers lathered in creamy peanut sauce are really quite hard to resist, don’t you agree? It took a lot of willpower […]
Another meal to add to the ‘interesting salads’ collection! These beef, macadamia and kumara crisp salads are exceptionally quick and easy to make. Delicious paired with the sweet yet tangy balsamic dressing. After suggesting kumara crisps as a gluten-free alternative to crispy noodles in one of last week’s recipes, I couldn’t get the idea of a kumara crisp salad out […]
Brighten up Monday with delicious Vietnamese chicken banh mi rolls full of interesting flavours. Rice pilaf with lamb sausages is a simple family meal with a nice crunch from nuts and seeds. Last on the menu this week are moreish and nutritious salmon and mango salads with crispy noodles.
I love my salads packed with delicious ingredients, and these salmon and mango salads definitely fit that description! Mango and crispy noodles are such yummy additions. Salmon works really well in a salad as it flakes nicely, meaning a little goes a long way and you can get a bit in every mouthful! If you want a more filling meal, […]
Rice pilaf with lamb sausages is a simple family meal with subtle flavours. The toasted nuts and seeds add a really nice crunch to the rice pilaf, and the dried fruit provides a hint of sweetness. Adding the fruit to the rice while it cooks makes it nice and juicy rather than chewy. Eat the remaining half orange for dessert, […]
These delicious Vietnamese chicken banh mi rolls are an easy dinner or lunch. The pickled vegetables, paté and sweet chilli aioli provide a great mix of flavours. Pickling the onions takes the strong onion flavour away and makes them much more palatable. If you have time, these can be prepped in advance and the chicken can be left to marinate […]
Start the week off with a bit of comfort food - juicy pork steaks covered in soft, richly flavoured onions, served with sautéed potatoes and salty feta. Chicken and bacon pancake stacks are a great dinner option for Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day). Last on the menu are crispy tofu salads, with easy oven-baked tofu and creamy almond dressing.
Easy, oven-baked tofu that’s golden and crisp without any frying! This tofu and the creamy almond dressing are definitely the stars of the show in these crispy tofu salads. This meal is really easy to make vegan – just replace the honey with maple syrup. I wouldn’t usually call tofu ‘yummy’ but I found it really moreish cooked like this […]
