This week’s menu features some ethnic-inspired recipes! Asian-style fish with noodle salad is a refreshing, nutritious meal that’s ready in under 30 minutes. Next is spiced lamb with sundried tomato hummus - a Middle Eastern dish with a few added veggies. Finish the week off with a simple ham and cheese rice slice - great for using up Christmas ham!
This easy ham and cheese rice slice makes great leftovers for lunch… it’s more filling than you might think. If you happen to have Christmas ham sitting in your freezer, this is one way to help use it up! Have you tried my easy veggie slice?

The brown rice flour works a treat in the fritters, providing a boost of nutrition and making this a very easy gluten-free meal (just make sure your baking powder […]
This summery meal of chargrilled steak with kumara cakes and corn on the cob can be cooked inside or outdoors on the barbecue. It’s easy and yummy!
