This is date night pasta. Whether that date is with yourself, a mate or your significant other. The kind of dish that’s impressive but very little effort so you’ll look like a whizz without getting yourself in a state. If tomatoes are in season it is beautiful with roasted Roma tomatoes stirred through, if not then just use a good quality passata. Or alternatively cherry tomatoes, halved and thrown in a pan with a little smashed garlic, chilli, oil and parsley and cooked until blistered is also great (I also make them a bit saucier (in all meanings of the word) by adding a little reserved cooking water from the pasta to loosen the tomatoes into a sauce when I do this.
Happy Sunday folks! I plan on having a day of getting shit done, as balancing full time work and the whole ‘Healthy Hunter’ thing is well, a balancing act. See, my brain is fried. I’m also busy getting holiday prep sorted so I can have a real adventure and not be continuously checking this little blog. Need to learn to let go a little. I have been busily prepping the most delicious of meal plans for you this week. There’s loads of simple week night dinners in both the Vegetarian and Non vegetarian plans. I’ve also thrown in a little something that involves a slight time commitment in each one too. Because challenge helps us grow.
Hello Sunday!!! It’s time to relax, potter, adventure and maybe do a little planning for the week ahead. This week I’ve got two delicious meal plans for you as per usual. One vegetarian, one for the omnivores. There’s a variety of flavour, from the spicy to the mild and from the trashy (buffalo chicken say what?!) to the slightly unusual (can I call it a meatball when there’s no meat in it???). I hope you love the plans!
And it’s February! How’s the year going so far? Such an annoying question, because we all love to be reminded of how fast time passes don’t we? This week, for the majority of them, I’ve tried to make the recipes quick and easy to throw together after work. The whole making things easier for people when it comes to cooking healthier food is totally my vibe this year.
The matcha tinted brown rice in these bowls is topped with flakes of steamed salmon and a cucumber, sesame, mint and pickled ginger salad. The matcha, ginger and fish are such a delicious combination with a beautiful balance of salty sharpness.
How was everyone’s week? I hope it was full on sunshine, wonderful people and delicious food. Let’s work on making next week all about that too shall we?
New year new you right? This year I’m changing it up a little and starting some weekly meal plans for you all. Each week there will be Meal Plan A (Vegetarian) and Meal Plan B (Meat Eater). They will include 5 nights of meal suggestions, photos to get you salivating and links to all the recipes. I’ll also chuck in a breakfast, lunch or snack recipe every now and then because I need variety in my life and I’m sure someone else out there does too!
Salmon baked in a bag for the win! It’s 2017 and I feel like this recipe is a bit of a 90’s throw back or something. But done in a modern way with the healthy grains and shredded veg right? I think… Anyway this is super easy and you can use any grains you like. I love the nutty combo of barley and quinoa with the vegetables and omega 3 rich salmon.
These prawns are the best! They’re so full of flavour and, thanks to the chickpea flour coating, are crispy and golden. The spicy salt seasoning makes them super delicious. Just writing about them makes me want to eat them again…
