Mediterranean Fish, Aubergine & Sweet Potato Stew

Mediterranean Fish, Aubergine & Sweet Potato Stew

I’ve made this stew a couple of times now, once using butter beans for my carbohydrate source and the other using sweet potato. They were both really delicious. It’s up to you which you choose to use. If you go with butter beans, add them

Goan Prawn & Aubergine Curry

Inspired by the Indian cookery lesson I did the other month through Sense Adventures, my take on the Goan prawn curry recipe I learned includes extra vegetables. Goa is on the southwest coast of India. The cuisine of the region makes good use of the 

Kale & Quinoa Tabbouleh with Halloumi

Kale & Quinoa Tabbouleh with Halloumi

This is a quick and simple, high protein, vegetarian meal. It is extremely tasty and filling. Ideally you need a food processor but you could just very finely slice the kale and herbs yourself if you don’t have one. This would be a lot more 

Pumpkin & Chorizo Quinoa

Pumpkin & Chorizo Quinoa

I’ve made a couple of versions of this recipe in the past but using butternut squash instead of pumpkin. Either work well, so use whichever you prefer. Roasting is another really delicious way to cook pumpkin and its mild, sweet flavour works really well with

Curried Chicken & Mango Rice

Curried Chicken & Mango Rice

This recipe is a cross between a curry, a biryani and coronation chicken. The combination of ingredients, curry powder, chicken, peas, rice and mango quite often feature in a typical coronation chicken salad and also are included here. However I lose the creamy calorie laden 

Smokey Chorizo & Bean Quinoa

Smokey Chorizo & Bean Quinoa

I took inspiration from a jambalaya recipe for this dish, only I swapped the rice for quinoa for variety. It just goes to show how flexible a dish like this is. If you only have one pan and not a lot of time, you can 

Moroccan Bean & Chicken Caserole

Moroccan Bean & Chicken Caserole

This is a great recipe for using up any left over tinned beans. It can also be doubled, making it great for batch cooking as you can freeze it. If I know I have got a busy day the following day, I like to make 

Fish & Rice Bake

Fish & Rice Bake

When I first started to cook more from scratch, I used to make this recipe all the time. However I don’t think I’ve made it for the past five years. The reason I chose to make it again is that it is fantastic for using
