TANDOORI CHICKPEA PIZZAS

Indian-spiced tandoori chickpea pizzas are a moreish vegetarian meal. Naan bread provides a sturdy base for all the toppings. Don’t forget a dollop of yoghurt and chutney – this finishes the pizzas off perfectly!  I was really pleased at how well the naan bread worked as a pizza base. I used naan from the chilled section which seems to be […]

SATAY CHICKEN SKEWERS

Satay chicken skewers are one of my favourite entrées when we go out to eat Thai food. This homemade version tastes very similar, but is turned into a full meal with the addition of rice and greens. Juicy chicken skewers lathered in creamy peanut sauce are really quite hard to resist, don’t you agree? It took a lot of willpower […]

BEEF, MACADAMIA AND KUMARA CRISP SALADS

Another meal to add to the ‘interesting salads’ collection! These beef, macadamia and kumara crisp salads are exceptionally quick and easy to make. Delicious paired with the sweet yet tangy balsamic dressing. After suggesting kumara crisps as a gluten-free alternative to crispy noodles in one of last week’s recipes, I couldn’t get the idea of a kumara crisp salad out […]

SALMON AND MANGO SALADS

I love my salads packed with delicious ingredients, and these salmon and mango salads definitely fit that description! Mango and crispy noodles are such yummy additions. Salmon works really well in a salad as it flakes nicely, meaning a little goes a long way and you can get a bit in every mouthful! If you want a more filling meal, […]

RICE PILAF WITH LAMB SAUSAGES

Rice pilaf with lamb sausages is a simple family meal with subtle flavours. The toasted nuts and seeds add a really nice crunch to the rice pilaf, and the dried fruit provides a hint of sweetness. Adding the fruit to the rice while it cooks makes it nice and juicy rather than chewy. Eat the remaining half orange for dessert, […]

CHICKEN BANH MI

These delicious Vietnamese chicken banh mi rolls are an easy dinner or lunch. The pickled vegetables, paté and sweet chilli aioli provide a great mix of flavours. Pickling the onions takes the strong onion flavour away and makes them much more palatable. If you have time, these can be prepped in advance and the chicken can be left to marinate […]

Easy, oven-baked tofu that’s golden and crisp without any frying! This tofu and the creamy almond dressing are definitely the stars of the show in these crispy tofu salads.

CRISPY TOFU SALADS

Easy, oven-baked tofu that’s golden and crisp without any frying! This tofu and the creamy almond dressing are definitely the stars of the show in these crispy tofu salads. This meal is really easy to make vegan – just replace the honey with maple syrup. I wouldn’t usually call tofu ‘yummy’ but I found it really moreish cooked like this […]

These savoury chicken and bacon pancake stacks are a less fiddly alternative to baked chicken and bacon crepes. A perfect dinner option for Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day).

CHICKEN AND BACON PANCAKE STACKS

These savoury chicken and bacon pancake stacks are a less fiddly alternative to baked chicken and bacon crepes. A perfect dinner option for Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day). Surprisingly, these chicken and bacon pancake stacks don’t taste like coconut at all. The baking soda really helps to neutralise the flavour from the coconut milk, and the chicken and bacon filling tastes […]

These juicy pork steaks with sautéed potatoes are covered in soft, richly flavoured onions and a crumble of salty feta. A great way to gear up for autumn!

JUICY PORK STEAKS WITH SAUTEED POTATOES

More comfort food for the dinner table! These juicy pork steaks with sautéed potatoes are covered in soft, richly flavoured onions and a crumble of salty feta. A great way to gear up for autumn. Sautéed potatoes are a quicker alternative to roast potatoes, and those crispy edges are so moreish! If you don’t like pork, feel free to substitute […]

CHEESY STUFFED MEATBALLS

Cheesy stuffed meatballs in homemade sauce – that’s comfort food done right! The addition of cottage cheese makes this version a little healthier, and parmesan adds a great flavour hit.  If you haven’t guessed already, I do enjoy a good meatball! From these popular lamb meatballs on zoodles, to loaded meatball subs, low carb pork and fennel meatball salads, pesto spaghetti with sausage meatballs […]
