LEMON PEPPER FISH BITES

These crunchy crumbed fish bites are flavoured with lemon pepper and served with crispy roast potatoes. A fresh salad with creamy dressing is the perfect accompaniment to this family-friendly meal. You can use any firm white fish fillets you like to make the fish bites. I just go for whatever looks fresh and is on special. If you don’t like […]

VEGETARIAN TAQUITOS

These baked vegetarian taquitos are a delicious way to satisfy a craving for Mexican (or Tex Mex!) food. They’re easy to make and stuffed full of beans, corn, capsicum and cheese. Strictly speaking, these taquitos should actually be called “flautas”, seeing as I used flour tortillas rather than corn tortillas. You can use whichever you prefer. I couldn’t find corn […]

CHEESY POLENTA BAKE

A creamy, cheesy polenta bake loaded up with sausages, mushrooms and spring onions. This meal is made warm weather suitable with the addition of a summery zucchini and capsicum salad. I haven’t cooked much with polenta before, but thought it was about time it made an appearance in one of my menus. The flavour of plain polenta is fairly bland, […]

Pearl barley is chewy, nutty and full of nutrients – it makes a nice change from the usual rice or quinoa. The peanut dressing adds some extra pizzazz and really brings the whole meal together. Perfect for both lunch […]

BACON AND PRAWN SPAGHETTI

Love a simple recipe? This bacon and prawn spaghetti heroes a few basic yet delicious ingredients. Soy toasted pumpkin seeds add an irresistible crunch to the salad. If prawns aren’t your thing, you can still make this pasta. Just add a little more bacon, or use smoked chicken instead – easy! For more delicious pasta meals, view the full Y.U.M […]

This Mexican chicken salad is a great summery lunch or dinner. It’s fresh and flavoursome thanks to plenty of veggies and a honey lime dressing – no sour cream or cheese in this one!
