An easier version of a full roast meal. This Mediterranean roast chicken uses butterflied chicken for quicker cooking, and is served with roast kumara mixed into a tasty salad. I like to cook the kumara pieces on the same tray as the chicken, to infuse flavour (and a bit of fat!) into them. They don’t go as crisp this way […]
This lamb and pesto pasta dish is full of really yummy ingredients, including some hidden veggies. It’s super quick and easy to make. If you haven’t heard of ‘wide lasagne’ before, have a look in the dried pasta section of the supermarket. Rather than lasagne sheets, it’s smaller pieces of pasta with frilly edges. Layering the pasta together with the […]
A variation on fish tacos, this salt and pepper fish on roti makes a delicious, filling meal. Wrap them up like a kebab, eat with your hands and it will feel like you’re treating yourself to takeaways! If you’re not too keen on seafood, the fish can easily be swapped for chicken. I like to lightly cook the cabbage – […]
For a delicious combination of indulgent and healthy, give the chicken, crumbed camembert and grape salad a go. The second meal on this week’s menu is Mexican bolognese - a Mexican twist on an Italian favourite! Finish the week off with a mild and creamy vegetarian Thai yellow curry.
Thai yellow curry is mild and creamy – a curry that the whole family will enjoy. This vegetarian version includes paneer, a fresh white cheese that is like a less salty version of haloumi. A couple of weeks ago I shared a satay chicken skewers recipe which featured yellow curry paste, with a promise to share another recipe in a […]
A Mexican twist on an Italian favourite! This lightly spiced Mexican bolognese is bulked up with veggies and beans, and topped with plenty of cheese, salad and a dollop of sour cream. Most nights in our household are spent trialling new recipes, but sometimes we just feel like some basic comfort food. Spaghetti bolognese always hits the spot. I didn’t […]
I’ve been looking for a way to add crumbed camembert to a meal and this chicken, crumbed camembert and grape salad is it! A delicious combination of indulgent and healthy. I first attempted to cook the camembert by baking it in the oven. With just a single coat of breadcrumbs, the camembert oozed out everywhere and made a complete mess! […]
Juicy tender pork stuffed mushrooms served with a rocket, and sundried tomato salad are the first meal on this week’s menu. Next up is tomato and basil chicken - a comforting dinner with a moreish side of parmesan crumbed broccoli. Then there's the creamy, cheesy prawn filo pies, paired with a fresh late summer salad. Happy cooking!
