I’m all about the simple things at the moment and quick, fresh food that’s easy to make. Actually, I’m always about that. This salmon ticks all the boxes and you can serve it with your favourite green vegetables or potato salad (new recipe coming tomorrow!) or whatever you like.
This salad tastes like summer on a plate. The smell of the ripe mangoes with the tangy peanut dressing is actually intoxicating. Mango, chili, avocado and prawn is such a great refreshing and summery combination, the sweetness of the mango balances the nutty soy laced dressing and compliments the prawns perfectly. Get ready to fall in love with your dinner…
I’m feeling indecisive. I knew all the flavours i wanted to eat but I couldn’t decided whether i wanted to have a pretty salmon with sauce and salad thing or if a quinoa bowl was more my vibe. So I made this dish both ways to see what was best. Turns out both are best, depending on level of hunger/patience for plating. This means that you’re getting a double whammy today. 1 recipe, 2 incarnations. Lucky you.
This bowl of goodness is so easy to make and such fun to eat. The juicy mussels add their own flavour to the broth and the sweet spring vegetables balance out all the spice so you have a harmonious zing. Get slurping.
I really had no idea what to call this! But as we were first trying it my housemate said ‘it’s sort of like a saag curry’ so I’m going with that. Thanks Selena! The sauce is super easy to make and full of all the good stuff – greens, herbs, ginger, turmeric and so on. The flavour is a fresh and relatively mild curry that’s perfect with delicate fish.
Happy Sunday folks! It’s Meal Plan time again, and I’m sticking to last weeks theme of one gut makeover friendly plan (to reflect what I’m eating) and one vegetarian plan (because eating less meat is a wonderful thing for the planet).
There’s a little theme going this week, this is my Szechuan week. I guess if I’m going to suggest an ingredient you might not have in your pantry already I should give you at least two great things to do with it yes? And these golden spicy prawns in crisp lettuce cups are the real deal.
This week Plan A is going to be gut makeover friendly! Plan B will be vegetarian because I haven’t quite mastered a whole weeks worth of vegetarian options that are gut makeover friendly from my recipes… I’ll get there! This also means that plan A will coincidentally be dairy free, gluten free, sugar free and paleo. And Plan B is where the noodles are at 😉
These salmon fillets are super easy and full of flavour. I’ve used a 3 herb pesto as it’s my current favourite but you could use whatever your favourite is. They also go perfectly with that potato salad I posted earlier in the week!
