Garlic Roast Vegetables

Garlic Roast Vegetables

I’ve filed this post under meal ideas, because it’s another that’s easily adaptable to the veg that you happen to have in the fridge!  Personal favourites are combinations of cauliflower, broccoli, brussels sprouts, green beans, aubergine, courgettes etc. Essentially the idea is the same; chop […]

Tandoori Chicken, Pilau Caulirice & Garlicky Green Beans

Tandoori Chicken, Pilau Caulirice & Garlicky Green Beans

I’ve been looking forward to cooking this for weeks now; it really didn’t disappoint and works very well as a ‘fake-away’. I’ve given proportions for one serving, but multiply up to make more. The chicken should keep in the fridge for a few days so […]

Mushroom Stroganoff & ‘Egg’ Noodles

Mushroom Stroganoff & ‘Egg’ Noodles

Not going to lie, I got through a couple of eggs before getting the noodles right and it was a perfect example of a time when I should really have looked up a recipe instead of winging it and being lazy by trying to do […]

Yaki Shirataki Noodles

Yaki Shirataki Noodles

I love Asian food. I believe that being half Chinese and spending time growing up in Japan, gave my sister and I a real appreciation of different food cultures which have continued to this day. Many east-Asian recipes can be very easily adapted for low-carb […]
