This wholesome chicken and barley salad is a little different from your usual chicken salad, but very tasty all the same! 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 […]

If you like Asian-inspired food, you’ll enjoy this week’s menu! First up are juicy Thai pork patties on a colourful noodle salad. Next on the menu are ricotta dumplings, baked in a rich tomato sauce and balanced out with a crisp green salad. Round out the week with Japanese beef schnitzel bowls (don’t forget the yum yum sauce!).
I’m always looking for an excuse to add schnitzel to meals! These Japanese beef schnitzel bowls are made easier with the use of pre-shredded coleslaw and microwave rice. Don’t forget the yum yum sauce! I’ve gone for a tangy Asian-style coleslaw rather than a super creamy one. I thought there was probably enough indulgence going on already with the crumbed […]
