For a really yummy, lower carb dinner, chicken caesar burger bowls with pickled red onion and homemade croutons are hard to beat. The second meal - seafood chowder in homemade bread bowls - is moreishly good. Miso paste really helps to balance the flavours. Finish the week off with spinach and feta stuffed lamb with a delicious minty dressing.
This spinach and feta stuffed lamb is a lighter version of roast lamb, with lots of greens and not as many carbs. The minty dressing finishes the meal off nicely. If you can’t find a butterflied lamb leg, you could use individual lamb steaks instead, folded in half and secured with a toothpick to enclose the spinach and feta filling. […]

Umami-filled miso paste is a key ingredient – it adds depth and delicious savoury flavour to the chowder, really taking it up a notch.

The easy chicken and leek pie is a deconstructed version for quicker cooking, with kumara rounds and a cheesy pastry topper.
Easy chicken and leek pie is such great comfort food. This deconstructed version has kumara rounds for the base and a cheesy pastry topper. Making the filling while the kumara and pastry bake means you can have the pie ready in much less time than usual, while still enjoying all the same flavours. This makes it a great make-ahead meal […]
This warm winter salad is full of delicious, fresh flavours. Garlic, roasted veggies, sundried tomatoes, pesto and haloumi make for a delicious vegetarian combo. I think this might be one of my new favourite salads – I love everything about it! The pearl couscous adds a nice contrasting texture and is actually quite flavoursome when cooked in chicken stock. If […]
Golden, crunchy stuffed beef schnitzel oozing with ham and cheese…mmm. Cauliflower cheese mash is the perfect pairing. I’ve used fresh breadcrumbs as I think they give the nicest texture and flavour, but you could use panko breadcrumbs if you prefer. Pureeing, mashing or ricing cauliflower somehow turns it into a much nicer vegetable! Do you agree? This mash is the […]
