Salmon and Herb Parcels

Salmon & Couscous Parcels

23rd September 2020

We often bake salmon in the oven, normally wrapped in foil with lemon, butter and vegetabes. I love steamed salmon cooked in this way, but I’ve never thought to add couscous before. This clever recipe brings all of the dishes ingredients together into one parchment paper parcel. Simply baked in the oven, it’s quick, it’s […]

5 Bean Chilli

Five Bean Chilli Recipe

18th September 2020

An oldie but a goodie. Our five bean chilli recipe is one that we come back to time and time again. In fact, in winter months, it’s a regular on our meal rotation. We always make big batches so that we can divide it up and freeze it for a later date. There’s nothing better than […]

Thai Green Curry

Thai Green Curry

1st August 2020

We hadn’t made a Thai Green Curry for ages. I’m not sure where the inspiration came from when we were in the supermarket, but we both fancied something relatively healthy, with lots of colourful veggies. (Standard procedure for us!). We decided to make a Vegetable Thai Green Curry, and rather than opt for tofu, we […]

White Fish with Curried Lentils

White Fish with Curried Lentils

28th July 2020

I had the idea of making this dish, after raiding our cupboards and finding an unopened pack of green lentils. I knew we had frozen fish, and thought a curried lentil dish would work well. However, I struggled to find just what I had in mind online. So instead, I sort of combined a few […]

Pan Fried Hake Recipe

Pan-Fried Hake on Crushed Potatoes

23rd July 2020

This is a oldie but a goodie. I come back to this recipe time and time again. The soft and fluffy, buttery potatoes. The delicious pan fried white fish. The fresh and zesty salsa. It’s a winning combination. But don’t just take my word for it. Recreate it for yourself and let me know what […]

Vegetable Ragu with Butter Bean Mash Recipe

Vegan Tomato Ragu & Butter Bean Mash

22nd July 2020

I first found this recipe in a Mindful Chef box. Butter bean mash wasn’t something I’d made previously, but it’s a great alternative to regular potato mash. Much healthier too. Butter beans naturally create a creamy texture when mashed down, so there’s no need to add butter or milk. Served alongside a vegetabl tomato ragu, […]

Charred Pineapple Wraps

Black Bean & Charred Pineapple Wraps

20th July 2020

We made this delicious dish at the weekend for lunch, but it would equally make a great dinner option. Instead of using a more common red kidney bean and meat combo, we’ve used black beans and added a touch of sweetness with grilled pineapple. The mix of ingredients and strong flavours, work perfectly together. If […]

Thai Coconut Soup

Thai Coconut Courgetti Soup

10th July 2020

I normally find thinking of a dish for dinner quite stressful, especially when we have very little food in the house. However, sometimes I really enjoy it, particularly if we have a couple of ingredients left over in the fridge that need eating. In this case it was a couple of courgettes. We hadn’t used […]
