CHINESE CHICKEN STIR FRY

An easy Chinese chicken stir fry that ticks all the boxes – simple, veggie-packed and not lacking in the sauce department. If it’s a fast, easy weeknight meal you need, you can’t go past a stir fry. This Chinese chicken stir fry is easy to customise with other meats and veggies, and could be made even quicker by using microwave […]

FILO PASTRY SAUSAGE ROLLS

Sausage rolls for dinner – how good! These filo pastry sausage rolls are deliciously moreish, as is the salad (a very loose take on Caesar salad!). The indulgent sausage rolls pair perfectly with the fresh, crisp salad. I’m loving flavoured nuts (🤔) at the moment, and the garlic soy toasted almonds add a real pep to the salad. Try not […]

LAMB SAAGWALA

This creamy lamb saagwala is a lightly spiced curry that’s a great way to eat your greens – it tastes better than it looks! I’ve had some requests for lower carb meals recently, so have chosen to serve this saagwala with cauliflower rice. If that’s not your thing, feel free to use regular rice instead. Or go for the balanced […]

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 […]

Chicken and barley salad is first on this week’s menu. The pearl barley is nutty and nutritious, and the peanut dressing adds pizazz! Next up is a cheesy polenta bake. It’s loaded up with sausages, mushrooms and spring onions. Finish the week with oven-baked vegetarian taquitos - a delicious Tex Mex meal.

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, […]
