BAKED SWEET POTATOES WITH CHEDDAR, BLACK BEANS AND GREEN SALSA

Baked sweet potatoes make for such a good lunch or dinner! You can make these ahead of time and just reheat things when you’re ready to eat. They take a little bit of time in the oven but you’re just waiting for most of that time – there’s not lots you need to do to make them delicious. You can read a book, dance round the kitchen, have a glass of wine etc while you wait for the oven to do it’s thing.

QUICK AND EASY HANGOVER NOODLES

The whole point of these noodles is to be quick, easy and full of some goodness. I’m not sure about you but sometimes the celebrations get away with me and it only takes one glass too many of wine and I am not feeling my healthiest the next day. I like to avoid the potful of hangovers, eating all the fried food and drinking sugary things, as often as possible. I mean, we’re all human but there’s no need to stack on the punishment for your body right? These noodles are your saviour.

MEAL PLANS WEEK 13

It’s that meal planning time of the week again! I’m not big on the whole spending my Sunday’s prepping food thing but I do like to take 15 minutes to sort out what I’m eating for the week ahead. I sometimes don’t actually get past the planning stage, actually the shopping part usually happens on Monday after work. That said, if I spend a few minutes planning, writing a shopping list and making some delicious choices on Sunday then it makes my Monday go far easier.

SIMPLE VEGAN CREAMY MUSHROOM FETTUCINI

A creamy mushroom pasta is like eating a big warm hug. It’s so comforting and rich and delicious. But it often makes me feel a bit sick if I have the actual creamy version. This vegan version contains no dairy at all, and still has that creamy texture and intense mushroom flavour you’re looking for. It can also be ready oh so quickly.

MISO AND GINGER TOFU CURRY

This curry is like a love child between ramen broth and a coconut¬†curry. I wanted the curry ‘gravy’ to have that flavour bomb thing going on that you get with ramen but to be served over rice like a curry. And wait for it… I cooked tofu in a pan not the oven for once! Turns out I can let go of my safety net!¬†

HALOUMI, ZUCCHINI, TOMATO AND PEARL COUSCOUS SALAD

This is a very summery couscous salad made super delicious with… HALOUMI. Because cheese if life and haloumi is so golden and salty and delicious. It’s one of my favourite cheeses because of how it is transformed in heat. It also takes this salad from side dish to lunch by adding a little extra protein to satisfy.

SPICED CRISPY KALE CHIPS

Kale chips, yes yes I’m a bit late jumping on this bandwagon but I swear I’ve been making them for years now. It’s just that I didn’t think my kale chips with just olive oil, sometimes chilli, and salt were ground breaking enough to share with anyone. Not that every recipe I share is always groundbreaking! Clearly not! But these kale chips are next level. I ate 2/3 of a bunch of kale in one sitting because of these. That’s a lot of kale, who does that?

VERY GREEN MATCHA SMOOTHIE

This is a green smoothie that packs a punch in the antioxidant and good for you departments. There’s matcha for those antioxidants, a good dose of omega 3’s, potassium, vitamins A, C and K to name a few, fibre, protein it’s like a powerhouse. I love serving it in a bowl over some muesli for hidden crunch and topped with fruit for contrasting flavours. And because it looks pretty tbh.
