Smoked Salmon & Eggs on Potato Cakes

Smoked Salmon & Eggs on Potato Cakes

This recipe is brilliant for that slightly indulgent brunch or lunch dish, to enjoy when you are still wanting to get plenty of nutrition in to your body, while also providing it with a treat. Ideally you would poach the eggs properly so that they have […]

Satay Style Prawn Noodles

Satay Style Prawn Noodles

As a child I used to say I hated peanut butter. I’m not sure I had ever actually really tried it. My mum isn’t a big fan and so we never really had it in the house. Now I eat it a lot. Spread on […]

Thai Chicken Curry & Rice One Pan

Thai Chicken Curry & Rice One Pan

Sometimes even the best of us have very little enthusiasm to cook. You might be tired, you might be stressed, your mind might just be on other things. Either way, when you are experiencing this you need a recipe for a meal that doesn’t take […]

Curried Paneer & Tenderstem with Mango Salsa

Curried Paneer & Tenderstem with Mango Salsa

This recipe evolved a lot from my initial plans. I intended to make paneer and pepper kebabs, but I ran out of peppers and so had to raid my fridge to find a good substitute. Sometimes these sort of meals turn out to be the […]

Chicken & Mango Stir-Fry

Chicken & Mango Stir-Fry

Quick, simple and tasty, this sweet and spicy stir-fry is great for using up any leftover vegetables you have at the end of the week. I used carrot and broccoli, as well as the mango but pepper, kale, or baby corn would work. I suggest […]

Miso Salmon & Tenderstem Quinoa Salad

Miso Salmon & Tenderstem Quinoa Salad

The inspiration for this recipe came from one on BBC Good Food, Only the one on there uses boiled eggs instead of salmon, making it vegetarian. They recommend it as a healthy lunch box suggestion that you can eat cold. I served this one hot, […]

Sausage & Broccoli Pasta

Sausage & Broccoli Pasta

I’ve recently discovered pasta made from red lentils or chickpeas instead of your usual wheat. They are gluten-free and also higher in protein and fibre, which make them a good healthy choice. If cooked correctly, they also I believe taste amazing, more like the same […]

Prawn, Pineapple & Sweet Potato Curry

Prawn, Pineapple & Sweet Potato Curry

When I made this I used green Thai curry paste, but in the past I have followed exactly the same recipe, but used Korma instead. Both flavours really compliment the dish so feel free to try either. Red Thai curry paste would also work and […]

Chicken Creole

Chicken Creole

This is the first recipe I attempted from scratch. Back in 2011 I was inspired to start being more creative in the kitchen by my then tandem partner or ‘pilot’ Fiona Duncan. I didn’t really know where to start so I ordered a couple of […]

Healthy Thai style Sweet & Sour Prawn Stir-Fry

Healthy Thai style Sweet & Sour Prawn Stir-Fry

Sweet and sour is one of the most popular dishes found in Chinese and Thai cooking. However, shop bought sauces and the versions found in takeaways are so full of sugar, fat and all kinds of additives that they really aren’t a healthy option. Even […]

Pineapple Fried Rice

Pineapple Fried Rice

Its not often I mix multiple protein sources in one meal, but a stir-fry rice is one. The beauty of this recipe is that you can do whatever you want really. Every time I make it there’s something different about it, but its so simple […]

Chicken & Spring Vegetable Risotto

Chicken & Spring Vegetable Risotto

I tried to be a little more adventurous and cheffy with this recipe by incorporating the woody ends of the asparagus in to the meal as well. This reduces waste, adds extra nutrition and intensifies the asparagus flavour. If you use fresh peas or broad […]
