POACHED CHICKEN IN A SPICY COCONUT BROTH WITH SWEET POTATO NOODLES 1    This is so simple to make and so full of flavour. It feels like you’re eating something healing too because of the slurpy broth and big vegetable content. The gently poached chicken adds extra flavour to the broth, however you can leave it out, swap the chicken stock for vegetable stock and you’ve got a great vegetarian meal.

I’ve been known to happily eat a sandwich for dinner (ummm has anybody not done this?). In reality they’re just another version of a burger and that’s dinner food so why not all other sandwiches? Come on, give me one reason?! They’ve got all the parts of a nourishing meal, complex carbohydrate, vegetables, protein. You can even have a side salad if it’ll make you feel like it’s more of a meal.

MISO AND SESAME CHICKEN SKEWERS WITH CUCUMBER AND MINT SALAD

MISO CHICKEN SKEWERS 4

These skewers are easy to throw together and make a delicious weeknight meal. They’re also great on the barbecue or at even cold at a picnic! Which seems super appropriate seeing as it’s Cup day and those are two things that hopefully someone is doing today! But anyway, I love the salty unaminess (making up words again) of them against the cool and refreshing salad.

BURMESE STYLE NOODLES WITH MUSHROOM CURRY SAUCE

Burmese style curry noodles with mushrooms 3

The Burmese style curry noodles are so versatile and full of flavour. They’re a take on a dish that usually involves noodles with a meat sauce and your favourite toppings. So sort of like a Burmese version of spag bol! Sort of haha.
