Carrot, Leek & Sprout Stir-Fry

Carrot, Leek & Sprout Stir-Fry

I’ve recently discovered how tasty sprouts can be when stir-fried. They work really well with Asian flavours like the sesame and ginger that is in this recipe. It is yet another one of my quick and simple throw everything in the one pan and stir…

Kale & Sprout Stir-Fry

Kale & Sprout Stir-Fry

This is another quick and healthy, vegetable packed stir-fry recipe that is ready in minutes. This time I served it with grilled mackerel fillets but in the past I have also made it with sliced up chicken breast, which I added to the stir-fry when…

Thai Green Turkey Meatball Curry

Thai Green Turkey Meatball Curry

If not careful, turkey can be really dry and not pleasant to eat. This is because it is an incredibly lean meat. It is a great substitution for chicken and if cooked well is very tasty. I buy these meatballs ready-made from Muscle Food, but…

Cabbage & Radish Stir-Fry with Mackerel

Cabbage & Radish Stir-Fry with Mackerel

Generally I eat radish raw, sliced up and added to salads. I wasn’t aware until recently that you can also cook them. They have been on special offer lately in Tesco, so i’ve been looking for inspiration on what to do with them. I came…

Hoisin Cod with Crispy Omelette Cake

Hoisin Cod with Crispy Omelette Cake

Ok, so this might not be the prettiest of meals to look at, but its tasty and nutritious. Its also quick to make and a little different to your usual noodle stir-fry. Often fish fillets are quite small and so don’t contain enough protein for…

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…

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…

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, Aubergine & Tomato Curry

Chicken, Aubergine & Tomato Curry

Cooked aubergine is great in a curry, especially as it is native to Asia and so gives a curry some level of authenticity. In fact it was in a curry that I first tried aubergine when my tandem pilot at the time, Fiona Duncan, was…

Chicken & Butternut Squash Tagine

Chicken & Butternut Squash Tagine

For this recipe I cheat a little and use a pre-made Moroccan Harissa spice mix. It’s basically a mixture of ground cumin, coriander, chilli powder and cinnamon, so if you can’t get hold of the mix then just use a combination of these. It will…

Chicken, Pear & Butternut Korma

Chicken, Pear & Butternut Korma

As I mentioned in my last recipe, Tesco were selling pears cheap so I bought a bag. As I don’t particularly enjoy eating them whole, I’ve been looking for ideas to include them in savoury recipes instead. Fruit in savoury dishes is something people either…
