It’s been a little while since I shared a recipe with you, so I thought that now the weather seems to be cheering up a little I’d share the most delicious steak skewer recipe. You know I like a good meal and so you can trust me when I say that these are well worth trying!
This said of course, as I look out the window this morning, it feels rather optimistic to think these have any chance of making it to the BBQ over the weekend – but I’ve cooked them on a griddle before and they […]
Seeing as pumpkin season is upon us, I thought I’d share a delicious lunch recipe full of lovely fibre to help keep your gut happy. This recipe is a little adapted from a Riverford recipe – it’s delicious!
Pumpkin Steaks with Warm Humus and Chicken
Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 30 mins
4 chicken thighs, bone out (I like the skin on)
For the pumpkin:
1 small pumpkin – the recipe recommends a crown prince which is the greeny white one. It’s a dense pumpkin but I imagine others would work too
Oil (coconut, olive, avocado…)
This is a fantastic dressing to put on some left over beef and turn it into a really fabulous salad.
You could even put the beef and dressing into a few gem lettuce ‘cups’ with some cucumber and tomato. Yummy. If you’re feeling really keen, you could put some toasted sesame seeds on top too.
Did you know fresh herbs are pretty rich in nutrients? Coriander is full of vitamins A, C, E and K, plus various minerals including folate, iron, magnesium and potassium. Lemongrass contains much of the same, while garlic and ginger have antiinflammatory and antiviral effects […]
We’ve recently brought some lovely feathery friends to come and live in our garden, and when they’re not up to mischief, they are laying us some delicious eggs.
As a result, we’re finding ourselves eating a lot of eggs – this is one of my favourite new recipes. It’s a bit of a variation on a shakshuka eggs recipe and is a great way to get a tonne of veg onto your plate! You could quite easily cook a big batch of the veg mix then just reheat and add the eggs for a quick lunch.
Time for a recipe!
I love a good fish pie. But it always seems off the menu when you’re trying to improve your health and lose weight.
Fish is a great thing to include in our diet, not least for the iodine which is needed for your thyroid gland to work properly, and which is a very common thing for us to be deficient in. Amongst a lot of other things, our thyroid controls our metabolism – the ‘speed’ our body works at – if your thyroid is working less than optimally, it’s likely to leave you feeling lethargic and […]
I found this recipe on the Real Meal Revolution website. I love saffron so thought I’d give this a try – it was fabulous! Cooking chicken on the bone is great, especially when all the good stuff which escapes during cooking can be captured into a sauce.
This recipe should serve four and is going to take about 40 minutes to cook, plus a few minutes to chop some onion, crush some garlic and slice a lemon.
8 Chicken Thighs, bone in, skin on
1 tsp coconut oil
1 red onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, crushed
I’ve been making this curry quite a lot lately. Its just the right amount of spice, is made with almost all store cupboard ingredients – and for some reason I always seem to have half a tin of coconut milk and half a carton of passata in the fridge, so it makes good use of them!
This is slightly adapted from the red Real Meal Revolution recipe book, which I think is probably my favourite recipe book ever.
Its going to take you about 15 minutes in total to prepare this and around half an hour for it […]
Lunch can be a bit of a boring meal.
What can you make which is quick and easy, uses ingredients you’ve probably got in the house already, isn’t too filling but is appealing enough to satisfy you and keep you away from the biscuit tin all afternoon?
Here are two of my favourite quick, easy, tasty lunch recipes:
‘Tuna And Stuff’
To serve one you’ll need:
A tin of tuna, drained
A generous teaspoon each of sliced black olives and sun-dried tomatoes
A sprinkle of pumpkin seeds
Chopped fresh parsley
A tablespoon of olive oil
