Miso-glazed Salmon, Aubergine, Broccoli & Pumpkin

Miso-glazed Salmon, Aubergine, Broccoli & Pumpkin

I bought a few munchkin pumpkins a few weeks ago because they are awesomely low in carbs, but hadn’t figured what to do with them. Then this week I bought a bag of beautiful salmon offcuts, so thought I’d experiment by combining a lot of […]

Panfried Coley with Tomato, Olive & Caper Sauce

Panfried Coley with Tomato, Olive & Caper Sauce

Coley is a white fish that is similar to cod, but more sustainably fished and usually much cheaper! I’ve paired it with some of my favourite flavours: chopped cherry tomatoes, black olives and capers, with fresh parsley, lemon and olive oil. This makes a lovely […]

Capricciosa ‘Pasta’

Capricciosa ‘Pasta’

Words cannot describe just how much I love this pasta dish, and I think it may actually have surpassed my Chorizo, Aubergine and Tomato recipe as my new favourite! I liked it so much, and it’s SO easy to prepare that I had it twice […]

Capricciosa Cauliflower Bake

Capricciosa Cauliflower Bake

My absolute favourite pizza topping is ‘Capricciosa’, usually ham, olives, mushrooms, artichokes and tomato. I’d been wanting to try this using the Fathead Pizza base, but because I forgot to defrost any, decided instead to make it into a baked dish, bulked out with cauliflower […]

Cabbage Soup

Cabbage Soup

I very nearly didn’t post this, because who’s interested in cabbage soup?! Then I changed my mind, because it really is lovely – a proper winter warmer and fantastic if you’re not feeling too well. I make mine with a little pre-made carrot and swede […]

Chinese Minced Pork & Prawn Salad

Chinese Minced Pork & Prawn Salad

I’m currently working on some variations to my favourite Taco Beef salad, to help mix up lunchtimes a little! This is a really yummy take on ‘Yuk Sung’, using Chinese 5 Spice powder and sweetener to approximate the flavour of hoisin sauce. Water Chestnuts and […]

Cheesy Roast Broccoli Pasta

Cheesy Roast Broccoli Pasta

This is a great, quick meal that requires pretty standard fridge ingredients and works well if you’ve used up a lot of your protein allowance for the day! There’s loads of variations that can be made as well – add fried bacon or prawns, use […]

Kedgeree

Kedgeree

This is one I’d been meaning to try for  awhile but kept forgetting to buy smoked haddock… In any case, it was worth the wait. Really simple and I didn’t miss the rice at all. Caulirice was a fine substitute and I added green beans […]

Chicken & Egg Drop Broth

Chicken & Egg Drop Broth

Last week I caught the cold from Hell (is that a contradiction in terms?), so in my attempt to feed my body ALL the good things that might help it fight the bugs quicker, I made up this superfood chicken and egg broth. Jam-packed with […]
