Despite me posting a curry recipe yesterday and complaining about the lack of Spring weather… it’s getting sunny this weekend and that means it’s time to get pumped about salads.
I didn’t really know what to call this as it has a bit of everything in it and is loaded with flavour.. thus what I ended up calling it! This salad is a reworking of one of my favourite vegetarian salads but with a different dressing and a few other changes because… well I can’t make it the same now can I?
This salad is high in protein and fibre to keep you full for longer and it’s so delicious! Like, surprisingly delicious. I made it for my friend Ally for lunch and she proceeded to message me at 30 second intervals as she ate it saying things like ‘it’s so yummmmm’ ‘Holy shit this salad is delicious’ and the like. She’s very supportive.
I love this risotto. It’s full of fresh green vegetables and finished with lemon zest to really enhance that freshness. Lemon zest and juice basically my favourite seasoning, up there with salt and pepper. Once you’ve tried it on this risotto you’ll see why.
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. This version involves a mushroom rather than meat based sauces but I’ve included instructions for a variation using chicken and one using prawns because variety is the spice of life and all that jazz (also I couldn’t choose just one version).
This is the best salad I’ve ever made. Did I say that yesterday?! If I did I didn’t know any better. Or maybe this is the best chicken I’ve ever made? No, it’s the salad. Fresh, crisp lettuce, creamy avocado, decadent Parmesan dressing and that crispy crunchy chicken.
Because when you’re the only one you’re cooking for it should be more fun, not make you sad. It’s a Friday recipe round up guaranteed to make any night that it’s just you a joyous celebration. Just add wine. The best part about cooking for you is you can cook whatever you like, however you like and not worry about anyone else’s opinion. Cos you’re the only one that matters.
This recipe is so easy and so adaptable. You can make it for just one person or multiply it by as many as you like. The chicken is succulent and full of flavour and the lentils are lick yout plate good. Once dish cooking at it’s best.
