After the Christmas cookie and cake galore I felt the need to return to refreshing, clean, healthy eating. I believe some of you may be trying to stick to New Year’s resolutions including healthy diet, so this healthy lunchbox idea may come useful!
Hmm… when was the last time I posted a savoury recipe? It’s been a while! December was filled with an abundance of chocolate and icing, so I believe it’s time for something different. Here they are – delicious, healthy patties with green peas, chickpeas and millet groats. Soft, fresh and delicate… And super simple to make!
We’re now 3 days into 2019. I’m sure a lot of you have started the year with long lists of resolutions. And I’m sure some of those resolutions were to get back on track with healthy eating and repair the damage done by overeating during Christmas season. If you happen to be looking for a healthy snack, an alternative to store-bought potato crisps, then making vegetable crisps at home can be a great idea. They’re much, much healthier, super easy to make, and you can use many different vegetables instead of regular, boring potatoes. Here’s a recipe for home-made, healthy, oven-baked sweet potato crisps. So, so delicious and crispy! A great idea for a party snack too – just increase the ingredients accordingly.
I’ve come across this recipe a few times within just a few days and it only felt right to give it a go. It’s a Middle-Eastern dish, a perfect alternative for breakfast scrambled eggs. It’s super simple to make and if you like strongly seasoned, warming recipes – this one’s just for you. Especially for those cold winter days, when it’s so hard to make yourself leave the comfort of your warm and cosy bed.
Who doesn’t love a good Chinese takeaway, right? But wouldn’t it be better to make it at home? 😀 Do follow the instructions though and marinate the meat a day ahead – it will turn out soft and insanely aromatic when you cook it the following day 🙂
These crunchy oven baked dumplings are a great idea for a weekend dinner – or, a party snack! You can make them with a variety of different fillings and serve with a selection of dips. Absolutely delicious!
So the other day I bought a huge bag of red lentils and… it turned out that through using small amounts of them in salads I will never be able to finish the bag I needed to find something else that I’d be able to use them for and I did! And now I have a feeling I’ll be buying more of those 1 kilo bags because this pate is just perfect! The texture is really soft, so you can easily spread it on a slice of bread, but it also holds together really nicely and you can eat it alone. I will definitely be experimenting with extra ingredients and spices, but this basic version is delicious as it is (the fact that I ate half of the tin in one day should speak for itself… oops). Also, yet another time curry spices prove to be just the best, for everything! The pate gets its beautiful bright yellow colour and warming taste from the curry, so if you choose to experiment with spices, I’d recommend keeping curry on the list. 🙂
