This week's meals are all on the lighter side, celebrating the arrival of spring! Vegetarian nachos with homemade tortilla chips are easy, healthy and super yummy. For a family-friendly, filling meal, give the chicken noodle fritters a go. Then finish off the week with Chinese fried rice, a quick and easy one-bowl dinner.
First on the menu this week is almond coated fish with honey roast veggies, steamed green beans and lemon aioli. The chargrilled chicken sandwiches are super easy to make yet still taste so delicious. The final recipe, tomato and bacon pasta, is simple and quick home cooking - perfect for busy weeknights.
Jumbo stuffed pasta shells with spinach and fecotta are the perfect nourishing comfort food. The beef and broccoli stir fry is an easy mid-week meal - it's saucy, mild and family-friendly. And if you've ever wondered how to get sausage rolls into your dinner rotation, I've found a way: add some veggies and serve with a big helping of spring slaw.
For a really yummy, lower carb dinner, chicken caesar burger bowls with pickled red onion and homemade croutons are hard to beat. The second meal - seafood chowder in homemade bread bowls - is moreishly good. Miso paste really helps to balance the flavours. Finish the week off with spinach and feta stuffed lamb with a delicious minty dressing.
Golden, crunchy stuffed beef schnitzel oozing with ham and cheese is a scrumptious way to kick off the week. Follow it up with a warm winter salad - an irresistible vegetarian combo of haloumi, roasted mushrooms and pesto. The easy chicken and leek pie is a deconstructed version for quicker cooking, with kumara rounds and a cheesy pastry topper.
Start the week off well with hot smoked salmon cakes and rocket and avocado salad. This is a delicious and nutritious meal. Sweet and sour pork has all the flavours of the takeaway version but can be made in the comfort of your own home. The final meal - meatball subs - are an indulgent and satisfying Friday night dinner. Don't forget the serviettes!
Making the most of delicious comfort foods this week! Leek and potato soup with cheese and garlic quick bread is a satisfying vegetarian meal. For a mild, rich and nourishing curry, chicken korma should definitely hit the spot. Finish off the week with loaded Mexican fries - a super yummy alternative to nachos.
This week is all about cooking yummy, nutritious meals with budget-friendly proteins. Toad in the hole with caramelised onion gravy is the perfect winter warmer. Try the lemon garlic chicken drumsticks for an easy, inexpensive dinner. Tuna mornay pasta bake is macaroni cheese with a twist - if you don't like tuna, there are plenty of other options!
Yum, yum, yum! I really enjoyed creating (and eating!) the meals for this week's menu. Crunchy top chicken with crumpet bread and salad is full of delicious textures and flavours. The vegetarian spaghetti bolognese has haloumi added for extra yum factor, and the stuffed baked potatoes are crammed with chorizo, corn, sautéed red cabbage and cheese.
Find three quick and easy meals this week. Garlic prawns is a simple recipe that really lets the delicious flavours shine through. Country-style pizzas are my favourite type of pizza - bacon, potato, caramelised onions and dollops of sour cream...yum! With freshly squeezed orange juice, ginger, honey and turmeric, orange chicken is a nourishing winter meal.
