Get ready to try twists on classic recipes this week. Creamy risotto with chicken, pumpkin and leek is much heartier than soup but just as good at warming you up. Falafel kebabs are a delicious vegetarian meal (or not so vegetarian, if you add the bacon!). Complete the week with lamb meatballs served on pesto spaghetti with delicious whipped feta.
This twist on traditional spaghetti and meatballs is fresh and flavoursome. Make the pasta and sauce while the lamb meatballs are baking and you can have dinner on the table in around half an hour. Easy! The whipped feta is a delicious substitute for grated cheese and pairs so well with the lamb meatballs and pesto spaghetti. Give this recipe […]
Homemade falafel kebabs are an easy, quick dinner. Make them as a vegetarian meal or up the delicious factor with the addition of bacon! If making these for lunch, you can prepare in advance, wrap up like a takeaway kebab and then reheat in a toasted sandwich maker before eating.

The final recipe - sausage stir fry - is a delicious family meal with an easy sauce that can be used as a base for other stir fries.
This sausage stir fry is the perfect weeknight dinner. Easy, quick and tasty, it also reheats well the next day. I usually make my own stir fry sauces rather than using packet sauces as I find they taste better and you know exactly what’s going in there. It may seem like a lot of different ingredients, but you can use […]
Crispy skin salmon with rice salad is super quick to prepare yet looks and tastes gourmet. It’s packed full of nutrients too! This is one of my go-to meals when I need something quick and healthy. The rice salad is pretty versatile and you can easily adjust it to suit your preferences (or to use up any leftover salad ingredients). […]
