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!
This is one of those meals that tastes luxurious and indulgent. The garlic and chilli prawns are full of flavour and are super comforting with the creamy cauliflower puree.
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).
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.
These bowls are filled with different vegetables, textures and flavours. Not to mention that perfectly cooked ocean trout. And that coriander yoghurt is my new obsession. I want to eat it with everything! The other day i just spread it on toast, is that weird? Don’t care, it tasted so good!
The chilli paste in this recipe is what it’s all about. It’s based on the paste found in the Malaysian dish Chilli Pan Mee and it’s all crispy, funky flavour. You will love it.
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.
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.
Calamari loves to quickly cooked, and it doesn’t need to be deep fried to still be delicious. This recipe ticks lots of boxes for me, it’s quick, easy and all the cutting for the salsa is balance by the lack of it for the calamari.
