Slow-Cooked Chicken, Sausage, Root Vegetable & Barley Stew

Slow-Cooked Chicken, Sausage, Root Vegetable & Barley Stew

I’m starting to use my slow-cooker a lot more these days. Its great for when i’m out all day and back late from training, as usually at this point I have very little energy or enthusiasm to cook, and I’m usually already starving. If I…

Wensleydale Cheese with Roasted Carrot & Samphire Salad

This makes a really tasty meal that is great for a filling lunch. I came across inspiration for this recipe when looking for ideas on what to do with my latest batch of samphire from my Fishbox. As it is classed as a seaweed, I…

Miso Fish With Cabbage & Samphire Stir-Fry

Miso Fish With Cabbage & Samphire Stir-Fry

For this recipe I use tusk, a white fish similar to cod or haddock. I’ve never knowingly had it before, but was sent it in last month’s Fishox selection. It was very nice, quite mild in taste and fairly meaty. I would happily eat it…

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…

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…

Cajun Spiced Quinoa with Hache Steaks

Cajun Spiced Quinoa with Hache Steaks

If you can’t get hold of these steak-shaped, minced meat patties I buy from Muscle Food then feel free to just use normal beef steak. You could also use meatballs, just add them to the pan at the same time as the Cajun spice mix…

Chicken, Parsnip & Carrot Curry

Chicken, Parsnip & Carrot Curry

Due to parsnips natural sweetness, I think it works really well in a curry. The contrast of sweet and spicy compliment each other really well and, for this recipe anyway, the different textures of crunchy carrot with softer parsnip add a slightly more interesting dimension to…
