I love the mix of soba noodles and vegetable noodles in this salad. The soba noodles are filling and if you use the buckwheat variety, some what nutty, the xoodles are tender and fresh and the carrot noodles (coodles?! nope, probably not) keep their crunchy. They’re all then dressed in the delicious creamy dressing and finished off with more vegetables and that vibrant pesto. Yum.
This is a nourishing bowl of goodness. The sweet and sticky carrots, bright green peppery rocket, creamy labne, spicy za’atar mix and filling quinoa and lentils make for a delicious lunch or easy to throw together dinner. Everything can be prepped early and be waiting for you in the fridge to grab and take to work.
This green goddess noodle bowl makes for such a delicious lunch. It can be eaten warm or cold, is full of green veg, buckwheat noodles and a tasty immune boosting ginger laced dressing. Plus it can be vegetarian, vegan or filled with whatever choice of protein you’re into. Versatile, easy food that works just as well for lunch as it does for dinner is what I’m all about.
Because there can never be enough cheese. This flat bread uses 2 of my favourite cheeses: buffalo mozzarella and goats feta. Both have such a great creaminess to them but I love the combination of sharp feta and gooey mozzarella against the mushrooms on this flatbread. It’s perfect.
This salad has a lot going for it, such as a whole rainbow of colour. Not to mention it’s super filling, full of protein, complex carbs, fibre and all the vitamins from that pretty array of vegetables. Speaking of pretty it also has that and I do think eating pretty food makes it taste better… we eat with our eyes and all that?
This soup is so velvety smooth and comforting. You will not be able to get enough. Plus it’s full of fibre, thus will keep you full even if you’re not dunking bread in it. The beans don’t need to be soaked before you start, which gives them a deeper flavour that goes so well with the cauliflower and sweet leek. Then there’s the garnish, you can make it with or without bacon and either way it’s crispy goodness is a textural treat. There’s also the other extra garnish of parmesan and lemon zest that ties everything together and makes this creamy, comforting winter soup taste fresh. It’s a winning combo.
Roast chicken has to be one of my favourite comfort foods. And it’s also super economical to make. Even if there’s just two of you a roast chicken is a cheap and delicious way to eat meat because you can use every little part of it. This particular recipe makes use of the chicken roasting juices to cook broccoli – it basically transforms the broccoli into a glazed umami rich side that you’ll be having future cravings for.
Poke. Not the thing you used to do on Facebook. The Hawaiian fish salad that can be combined with all sorts of other things to make a sort of deconstructed sushi bowl. This is my rather free interpretation of it. It has honestly become one of my favourite things to eat, easy, filling and nourishing PLUS it can be endlessly varied to suit your tastes and mood. Perfect.
This recipe is a vegetarian version of this delightful little number. Thus the similar looking dish/sounding recipe title. I am clearly very creative. But the caramelised mushrooms with their spicy undertones are the perfect replacement for the earlier recipe’s crispy, fragrant mince.
These are so fresh and tasty. The perfect thing for a light summer dinner and super perfect for taking to work. If you do that be prepared to sit at your desk dreaming about lunch for a god period of the morning. The fragrant smell of the salad will get you all excited before you even start on the rolling part.
