Cheesy Pasta Bake

For me, this recipe screams comfort meal and is a perfect, easy dish to throw together at the end of a long week, and still includes some healthier fats than a traditional pasta bake. Simple dishes like this are so appealing to me to make, and a safe option if cooking for a number of…

Keto Burrito Bowl

The trick to surviving any new diet, is to modify the recipes you love best to fit them, so that there’s a sense of similarity there to help keep you satisfied. Luckily the past few weeks of keto for me haven’t been too difficult at all, because I was already a big fan of the…

One Pot Butter Chicken with Broccoli Rice

Hey all, I hope all has been well with you and that you’re getting through the lockdown alright; I’m sure you have some great routines set up for yourselves. Speaking of lockdown routines, I have recently began something different with my diet – the keto diet! I had heard about this diet many times in…

Chicken/Tofu Teriyaki Courgetti

Fan of the classic Chicken Teriyaki dish? Here it is and without so much of the Saturday-Night-Takeaway or Unhealthy-Convenience-Food guilt. Using spiralled courgette instead of rice, makes this lower in carbs and baked tofu can be used beautifully in place of chicken! This is a gorgeous lean, tasty and impressive dish to make! Note: this one requires a courgetti…

Dairy-free Veggie Alfredo

Chicken Alfredo, or Fettuccine Alfredo, has long been an Italian classic and household favourite. You can’t deny the delectable appeal of the butter-infused, parmesan-saturated dish, and the cosy food slumber a lot of us have fallen into after enjoying it in the past. For many though, the after-affects may not be so pleasant, or the…

Made in Minutes, Meatballs

Meatballs are a childhood favourite of mine and they always remind me of home. I grew up loving homemade beef meatballs, but then branched into other kinds such as turkey meatballs and various vegetarian versions, but I’m always dragged back to enjoying these ones. This was a very impromptu recipe, but it came out amazing;…

Sweet Potato & Quinoa Satay

Low in oils and sugar, high in slow release carbs and a substantial source of protein (which some wrongly think vegans don’t get enough off) 🌱 This is a dish to try on your meat free days. The traditional peanut butter sauce that we often associate with chicken, transforms a veggie dish into a hearty…

Prawn Pad Thai

I have always been a fan of prawns; I remember my favourite childhood starter being a fresh prawn salad topped with some tangy balsamic vinegar. The older I get, the more I seem to experiment with other prawn dishes. My last recipe, Prawn al Peperoncino, is definitely one of my favourite prawn dishes, and one…
