Fish pie with potato and kumara mash, and green beans.

YUM is what we’d call this week’s meals! Begin the week with a hearty fish pie, topped with creamy potato and kumara mash. Next up is oven baked chicken tikka. It’s juicy, succulent and a wee bit gourmet. Last on the menu is pork and fennel pasta. A great alternative to spaghetti bolognese!

PORK AND FENNEL PASTA

This pork and fennel pasta is a gourmet alternative to spaghetti bolognese. Serve with a simple rocket salad and a generous dusting of parmesan. Pork and fennel is such a great combination! However, if fennel isn’t to your liking, you could replace with dried sage instead. This is a really easy weeknight meal. A great way to freshen up dinnertime […]

OVEN BAKED CHICKEN TIKKA

Oven baked chicken tikka – juicy, succulent and oh so tasty! This is one of those meals that may surprise you with its deliciousness! Tikka masala spice paste, Greek yoghurt and crushed up nuts and seeds make a super flavoursome coating for the chicken. Extra yoghurt, basmati rice and lightly charred broccoli are the perfect accompaniments. I think you could […]

FISH PIE

Fish pie is a classic! This version features two types of fish in a luscious sauce, topped with creamy potato and kumara mash. There are lots of variations you can try to suit your tastes. Use all potato or all kumara for the topping; omit the eggs; replace the fish with chicken and bacon; add some prawns to make it […]

KUMARA SOUP WITH FRIED BREAD

A hearty sweet potato / kumara soup is the perfect winter warmer. It’s nourishing, tasty and great for lunch the next day too. You can easily adapt this recipe to suit your tastes – make it vegan, vegetarian or load it up with bacon! I wanted something a little more interesting than regular store-bought bread to go with the soup, […]

GINGER BEEF STIR FRY

This ginger beef stir fry is simple, super quick and very tasty. Cook the sliced rump steak quickly over a high heat and you’ll be rewarded with juicy tender beef. It’s much tastier than pre-cut beef stir fry. The sauce uses just a handful of flavoursome ingredients and thickens up nicely thanks to the cornflour coating the beef. Brown rice […]

FRENCH ONION CHICKEN

French onion chicken – like French onion soup, but a little more substantial and gourmet! Juicy pan fried chicken thighs are topped with melty gruyere cheese and nestled into rich, sticky caramelised onions. The super creamy, reduced carb cauliflower and potato mash is a great match. I can honestly say I prefer it to regular mashed potatoes. The blend of […]
