SOUS VIDE SALMON WITH SMOKY MAPLE DRESSING

This salmon is tender and really flavoursome. The smoky sweet dressing is so yummy with the oily fish. I serve it with a fennel slaw to balance the richness.

CHICKEN AND CABBAGE FRAGRANT FRIED RICE

This is a super adaptable recipe, it’s one of my favourite fridge clean out meals and you really can use the basic ‘technique’ and simple flavours to make fried rice out of whatever you have leftover. It’s really simple comfort food at its best! This combination is so tasty though, especially with build your own toppings I like to serve on the side.

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.

BAKED CHICKEN KIEV WITH HOME MADE WEDGES

Hey there 80’s classic I’m coming at you with both my wardrobe and my food right now. In terms of wardrobe there’s this pair of vintage jeans I own which are a stone grey with an elasticised waste, they’re sort of baggy and sit up high and I roll them up and sometimes wear them with platforms, a black silky cami and probably not a bra. They’re fantastic. Pretty much all men hate them, but I love them and that’s the part that matters. I also love Chicken Kiev and I’m bringing it back. Even if it’s only at my own table.

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!

MEAL PLANS WEEK 12

Whoop whoop it’s that time of the week again! Meal planning! Well for you it is… I am in Spain planning nothing but my next day trip. I even did your planning in advance so this little collection is ready to go today. I decided this holiday is all about me turning my brain off so most of these posts are written in advance. Such organisation! Now back to your life…

MIDDLE EASTERN CHICKEN AND BARLEY SALAD

   This is an easy and delicious salad that works just as well as a filling dinner as it does as an easy-to-batch-cook work lunch. The flavours and textures are great together plus the mixture of protein sources and complex carbs mean it’s super filling.

PRAWN GADO GADO SALAD

I don’t know if this is something you’ve picked up on but I’m pretty into a peanut dressing at the moment. There was the coconut poached chicken salad, the tofu schnitzel strips and the satay Tofu. Is it getting repetitive? I hope not because this is another good one! This salad is both refreshing and filling and I’m not going to claim it’s traditional. Let’s call it my take on a Gado Gado salad instead.
