Happy Sunday! This week’s meal plans are teeming with delicious ideas and lots of variety… actually there’s an awful lot of mushrooms in that vegetarian one – but you can use different mushrooms so still variety right? I’ve tried to include recipes that use a lot of the same herbs and will pop in tips to make sure you’re not wasting food!
I have always loved silken tofu but I’ve never used it at home. No idea why because it’s so easy! In this recipe you don’t even need to cook it and the creamy texture is so lovely with spicy mushroom sauce.
These dishes are all ready to go meals in one pan. This means, less fussing, less active cooking time and less cleaning up afterwards for you. Life just got simple.
We’re deep into winter now and I finally think I’ve adjusted. I’ve got the right amount of blankets on my bed. I know how to get the house warm super quick, and have red wine and a list of great shows on hand for when it’s too miserable to head outside. plus, I’ve got a decent list of winter favourites I’m rotating.
I’ve made broccoli fritters before but I love the ginger in these ones, it’s a fresh immune boosting vibe for this chilli season and I’m all about it. The best part about this dish is definitely in the combination of fritters and cucumber and peanut salad though. so good, so much flavour and texture and super easy to make!
This dish was a happy accident. I made a kale and lemon pappardelle, and then accidentally left the pan on with the leftovers in it. The pasta got all golden and crispy on the bottom, as did he make and the Parmesan melted through it and it was BETTER. A few other changes later and we have the beautiful, wholesome and easy to make skillet ‘lasange’.
I haven’t made a buddha bowl in what feels like ages and this was just what I needed. Golden coconut coated tofu, roasted kale and lightly pickled carrot with a creamy avocado and peanut sauce or piled on top of quinoa – perfect.
This is such an easy soup recipe and will keep you feeling warm on these chilly winter days. It can be ready in 30 minutes and is all done in one pot, no blending required. The spices can be adjusted to suit your taste and you can leave out some if you don’t have a well stocked spice cupboard. That said, buy SOME spices though, cos if you don’t know how to flavour your food what are you even doing?!
