Jade Noodles

Tonights dinner, super quick and easy noodle salad loaded with green vegetables. I’m going to skip the asparagus as we try eat with the season as much as possible. You can also add a few eggs, scrambled, fried, soft boiled…..whatever takes your fancy!

Bon appétite!

Slow Cooked Chili (or in 45 min)

I am on a roll!! Two posts in two days! Let’s see how long that’s gonna last for……

A few days ago I made a slightly different version of this chile recipe, and it was damn tasty! I very rarely follow a recipe from beginning to end. Don’t ever be shy to change a few things up and don’t be thrown if you you don’t have all the ingredients.

I didn’t have turkey, so I used minced beef and a beef stock instead (whichever meat you do choose, go organic if you can. Better for you, better our animals and mother earth. And if you’re not into meat, or just fancy a veggie version, chopped up some sweet potato and add an extra can of beans) I also skipped the apple butter as suggested and the chipotles. Instead I used some fresh chiles, as much or as little as you like depending on how hot you like it!

This recipe is actually for a slow cook but can also be done in 45 minutes. Serve it up with some rice or soft tortillas, avocado, fresh coriander and a dash of lime. Bon Appétite!

Kung Pao Zucchini (Courgette)

Kung Pao Zucchini (Courgette)

Once again, it’s has been a long time since I last posted any recipes! Having kids is really f****** time consuming, in case you didn’t already know! Anyway, here’s a little quick dish for inspiration from Feasting At Home. Don’t worry if you haven’t got the exact ingredient, as long as you’ve got: garlic, soy sauce, and vinegar you’re already winning! I also like to add some toasted sesame oil as little extra. Any noodle or spaghetti will do just fine as well. Enjoy!

Thai Coconut Courgetti Soup

Thai Coconut Courgetti Soup

The temperatues are dropping, the leafs are falling and it's officially soup season! I am a huge fan of asian flavours, and Thai soup is right up my street. It's fine to use a good quality ready made paste, but always adds extra fishsauce, soy sauce, lime leafs and fresh ginger. Lime leafs really gives it that authentic taste of thai, so don't skip it. Get a big bunch as well, they stay fresh forever in the freezer. This recipe is from Olive Magazine. I often add some shredded chicken as well, finished with a big handful of coriander and some freshly squeezed lime juice. Bon Appetit!

Asian salad with ginger peanut dressing

We're having a few friends around for dinner, one of which doesn't eat any form of pasta, rice or potatoes, so tonight we're having courgetti instead of noodles. I'm also gonna swap out the tofu for some chicken (As always choose high welfare, and organic if you can) The recipe is from Nourish Atelier Enjoy!

Butternut and Kale Lasagne with Quinoa and Red Pepper Sugo

Butternut and Kale Lasagne with Quinoa and Red Pepper Sugo

Another Butternut squash recipe....absolutely! Honest and hearty ingredients, perfect for a grey day like today. You can easily replace the kale with spinach, and I like to add some more cheese to it as well, a mix of ricotta, feta and pecorino mixed with an egg to make a spreadable paste. If it's too thick, just add a bit of milk till it has a nice consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Another little trick is to take the lasagne out, and let it rest for 10-15 minutes before served. It's brings out the flavours, and you don't end up burning your mouth to shreds. Enjoy! The recipe is from Nourish Atelier

Hummus Hummus Hummus

A plate of hummus for dinner on it's own might seem odd to some, but believe me IT IS delicious! The first time I had hummus like this was at Hummus Bros in Soho. I had it with a slow cooked lamb stew,  and just the thought of it makes my mouth water as I'm typing away this very moment. So I would highly recommend trying it out with a hearty lamb stew, cooked with cinnamon and star anise, garnished with a generous handful of coriander and some roasted sesame seeds but any other type of stew or just lots of fresh vegetables will be great as well. The hummus recipe is from Nourish Atelier. Bon appetite!

EASY VIETNAMESE LETTUCE WRAPS

These little babies are a regular eat in this house. We love 'em! They're super easy to make, and incredibly moorish. There's not much cooking required either, mostly prepping and chopping veg. You can either go all veggie, or have it with some shredded chicken (the happy kind), fresh fish or prawns. The options are endless! Or if you have any leftover meat from your Sunday Roast, perrrfect! And don't forget the Sriracha Sauce! This recipe is from Feasting At home. Enjoy!
