Gourmet Veggie Burgers with Hot Sauce and Fries

Right away I’m going to tell you that I had other plans for these burgers, they were supposed to be stuffed with (drum roll please…) avocado. Just a nice slice of avocado stuffed into the centre before baking. But, and this is due to my lack of planning, there was not a ripe avocado in sight! So I’ll try it next time, but if you do fancy adding it into this recipe then you go for it! Please also note that these are soft burgers, so be gentle with them. I know there are a lot of people who are […]

Chana & Lentil Masala with Homemade Spicy Garlic Flatbreads

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love spicy food! If there is one thing in my herb and spice cupboard that needs constantly restocked, it’s chilli flakes (along with cumin and chilli powder of course, so that’s 3 things!) I don’t think I could get by without those little treasures and now that I’ve started adding turmeric into a lot of my dishes that too will to go on the list so going to have to start buying in bulk! When I first started cooking I was a little reserved with the spices, maybe adding a […]

Quick & Easy Mushroom & Beansprout Teriyaki with Soba Noodles

I’m always amazed at how quickly you can make a delicious meal. When I sauntered through to the kitchen to make this dish, I’d planned at least 45 minutes to make it and I was happily surprised when it was ready and on the plate in under half an hour, what’s not to like about that. Using simple ingredients that take no time at all to prepare and cook you can be sure to minimise your time in the kitchen. I’d originally thought about just mushroom teriyaki, but, and I mention this in my notes, no matter how many times […]

BBQ Lentil Chilli with Guacamole and Mexican Rice

Back to Zumba again this morning, I was told there were a few new tracks in the routine so I thought I’d go have a looksie and get in on the new moves, I liked it, a little more high octane than the previous couple of classes which I quite like especially when it’s to The Black Eyed Peas “I got a feeling”, I’m dancing away as I type! Then a nice stretch out with Body Balance straight after, so feeling suitably worked out for the day. I’m really looking forward to Sunday this weekend as I’m heading to the […]

Veggie Enchiladas filled with spicy kidney beans, mixed peppers and Mexican spiced rice, topped with spicy mushroom marinara sauce

Keeping in with the theme of “comfort food” I think that I can easily pop this Enchiladas recipe in that category, it’s a very hearty and filling dish and is packed full of the good stuff including kidney beans, mushrooms and mixed peppers, all great ingredients to keep us ticking over. I was going to make some guacamole to go with it but no avocados for me and in the end we didn’t really need the extra side dish. Something to keep in mind with the enchiladas is that you don’t have to stick with the kidney beans, if you […]
