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 […]
Menu 96 kicks off with lemon pepper fish bites. Serve with crispy roast spuds and a fresh salad. Lower carb lamb saagwala is next on the menu. It’s lightly spiced and a great way to eat your greens. Finish up the week with filo pastry sausage rolls. They’re deliciously moreish!
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 […]
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 […]

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.
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 […]
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, […]
