I have decided to challenge myself with trying recipes with ingredients I haven’t or very rarely cook with. I started thinking about haloumi and after a few random ideas I came up with these burgers. I haven’t cooked with haloumi or turkey mince until now and I’m kicking myself for it! My Turkey and Haloumi Sliders on Sweet Potato Buns are perfect appetisers for big groups or a fun dinner for a few people. These are even better than I thought they would be – I’m so excited for you to try them!
Since spring has arrived I have been craving seafood like crazy! I think the warmer weather has me feeling like I should be on an island somewhere all the time and of course if you’re on an island, you’ll be eating seafood, right? For those of you who are like me and aren’t all that into pasta, but still enjoy meals that go so well with pasta, this recipe is for us! Did I mention its unbelievably easy too?!
Stir fry's, in my opinion, are one of the best and easiest meals to make to get a lot of vegetables into your tummy. I love that you can whip up a stir fry in a matter of minutes and can change the flavors so easily. This recipe is another one that you can tweak to suit your liking, depending what your fave veg are. I've listed more ingredients than are in these photos because you can literally put anything you want in!
Chia pudding is the perfect healthy alternative to dessert or any sweet treat for that matter. Full of natural sweetness and all the benefits these tiny little seeds contain, this recipe is an easy five minute treat to make. You can even have it for breakfast to curb those sugar cravings first thing!
Taco night is a regular occurrence in my household. We love the flavours of a good taco/burrito and its always a bit of fun putting them together (and hoping they don’t crash and break apart mid-way through eating them). This recipe combines the flavours of tacos with the gorgeous sweet flavours of roasted sweet potato. You can add any other of your favourite taco toppings even if they’re not mentioned here. Get creative with this one!
The humble pumpkin soup is a must in winter. There is, however, a downfall to pumpkin soup (in my opinion anyway)…The only thing that could make pumpkin soup better is if it was more filling! It gets tiring and expensive having to eat giant bowls of pumpkin soup to feel full. Well look no further because I have the solution my winter warming friends!
Crispy skin salmon is one of my favourite things to eat for so many reasons. I only started eating salmon a few years ago and the first way I tried it was with crispy skin and I was hooked straight away! Since then I have converted non-salmon eaters to die-hard salmon fans with this simple recipe. One of the best things about crispy skin salmon is you can serve it with almost anything! My favourite ways are in an Asian style soup or with a plate of lightly sautéed vegetables.
There is something so fun about rolling up delicious, healthy ingredients to make a flavour packed roll. I have a real obsession with rice paper rolls, but one day I thought to myself ‘what else can I use instead of rice paper?’. This thought combined with an old favourite of mine – ginger chicken mince – made this creation.
Let's be honest, who doesn't love a good platter these days? I know I am a sucker for a good platter paired with the perfect wine and these three dips - olive, beetroot and roast pumpkin hummus - are perfect for any platter. They are also great to use as a dip for carrot/celery sticks as a healthy snack during the week.
Healthy breakfasts have been something I have focused on for a long time. Firstly, because I never used to be a breakfast person at all so I really had no idea about 'breakfast foods' and secondly, because if you're someone who doesn't eat bread or cereal - aka me - healthy breakfasts that taste nice can be hard to find. Until I discovered sugar free granola.
