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…
This pasta. This pasta is everything. Soft, gently cooked, flakes of salmon tossed with al dente orecchiette that scoops up the peas and herbs. Plus, the fennel and lemon are the perfect thing to compliment salmon. This pasta is light and flavoursome. Fresh spring flavours in a bowl.
Most days either my lunch or dinner is some sort of bowl food. Because things eaten from a bowl with just one utensil are somehow simpler and better… well maybe not better (I feel this is unfair to all the other delicious non-bowl food out there) but really good!
