Today, I want to share one of my new favourite recipes. I mentioned it in my July 2021 post as one of my greatest discoveries of the month. Aromatic and full of flavour, this Thai basil ketjap manis turkey is extremely versatile and will perfectly work as the meat protein source on your lunch/dinner plate, accompanied by a source of complex carbs (think rice or pasta) and some steamed veggies (I recommend tenderstem broccoli). It can also be used in stir fry, wraps, or even as a sandwich filler!
After a while without porridge recipes, I’m about to bless you with a second one this month (and it may not be the last!). Porridge – also known as oatmeal – is one of my favourite breakfast foods. Not only healthy and nutritious, but also so, so delicious! It’s a perfect base that can carry almost any flavour. Carrot cake, banana, coconut… the possibilities are endless. I’ve even seen recipes for savoury porridge, though I’m yet to try those out. Today, I want to share a recipe for turmeric pear porridge.
It’s been a while since I last posted a porridge recipe, so here it is! A steaming fresh, summery porridge with mango and pecan nuts. Not a flavour I ever thought I would try, but the world belongs to the brave, right? It’s actually really tasty and I’m buzzing to share it with you.
I feel like every time I post a recipe, I say it’s my recent amazing discovery and the best thing in the world. This time… it’s not going to be any different! I want to share with you a recipe I’ve been loving for the past month. Vegan and high protein, if anyone’s in the market for that. 🙂
Today, I’m presenting you the Queen of salads. My absolute favourite. A fantastic way to incorporate vegetables in your diet but also provide your body with a variety of important nutrients, and – most importantly – feed the hunger with delicious flavours.
I found it. Years of searching and experimenting and finally, here it is. The best recipe for muffins. It works perfectly every time and the muffins stay moist (sorry to all those cringing at the sight of this word) for a few days. And what’s best is that you can use the base recipe and make it with various extras, and it will work. Berry muffins? Check. Kinder chocolate muffins? Check. Nutella muffins? Check. Bolognese muffins? Che… okay, let’s not go that far. But as far as sweet, reasonable goodies go – you can put them in these muffins and nail it.
Although I have no data to back my theory, I will go ahead and guess that January is potentially the most common time for dieting. After all, who hasn’t, at some point in their life, decided to make healthy eating and working out their New Year’s resolution, in hopes to balance the Christmas overeating? However, I’m a firm believer that a healthy diet is a balanced diet, and radical dietary restrictions can do more harm than good in the long term. They’re also difficult to stick to for more than a few days. So what if I told you that pancakes can actually be part of a healthy diet?
If there’s one food item that just screams “autumn” to me, it’s apples. Not pumpkins, which are a thing for about 2 weeks around Halloween, not cinnamon (which does go well with apples though), but apples themselves. Today’s recipe is an idea for healthy, autumnal dessert for one. Living alone, I can’t always justify baking a whole cake and recipes that make a small portion are incredibly useful.
You feel hungry, open the fridge and realise there isn’t much to work with. Sounds familiar? That’s how I came up with this recipe – the recipe that’s now, about 5 years later, a staple in my family. Sometimes made because the fridge is empty and no one has gone to the supermarket, but sometimes made because it’s quick and we genuinely like it.
Red velvet cake… with a twist? I wanted to attempt making the iconic cake for the first time, after eating it on a few occasions. Sadly, bright red cake with white cream cheese frosting isn’t a realistic, good idea anymore if you’re short on red food colouring and bake for someone with a white food phobia. The twists were a must. I found a recipe and adjusted it slightly – the final result exceeded my expectations!
