Posted on April 27 2017 All your greens in one bowl with this Green Goddess Pesto Pasta Salad! I’ve always loved my greens and I can eat them any which way – cooked, raw, roasted, steamed, or in a delectable pasta salad fit for any occasion! I know some of you probably struggle a little bit to…
If you need a meal that satisfies all the senses, is healthy AND is ready in mere minutes then this is the wrap for YOU!!
The perfect entertainment food in my book. Who wants to spend ages standing in the kitchen once your guests have arrived and everyone is chatting and having fun? I’d rather be able to prepare everything beforehand, and then be as involved in the gathering as everyone else.
Got 15 minutes? This is the epitome of clean, light eating and it’s just so refreshing and delicious! You get your greens, a little zing from the lemon, and all that goodness in the sunflower seeds. This is my idea of the PERFECT delicious healthy meal in minutes!!
This makes such a hearty and scrumptious meal for lunch or dinner with the family, or a great quick and easy dish when your friends come over and you don’t have time to spend ages cooking up a storm. They’ll never know though because all the favours are there and SO much GOODNESS too!!
This soup is silky smooth, thick, creamy and overflowing with flavour and goodness – this may just become a weekly staple on my menu!! What a great lunch option, or a perfect anytime quick & simple dinner for the family. I’m pretty sure even the fussiest eater won’t turn their nose up at this one!
Made with onions, garlic, carrots, celery, dried herbs, fresh basil, chicken broth and chicken breasts – SO chicken-y and vegetable-y = YUM.
For some reason I always think of Chicken Soup when I’m under the weather, as I have been this week. Probably because it’s what you see on TV….when someone is sick…you give them Chicken Soup!
Serve it with pasta, chicken, vegetables, in stuffed roast peppers! This sauce will go with just about anything you can think of and it will add heaps of flavour, colour and goodness to the meal.
If it’s a creamy (yet dairy free), hearty (yet vegetarian), singing with mushroomy flavour and packed with goodness soup you are after? Then you’re looking at it!! The little bowl of beauty pictured above ^^ is everything you want a mushroom soup to taste like with the added health and comfort benefits of the humble chickpea.
This is every bit as good as it sounds…and who doesn’t love a meal even more when it’s on the table in 35 minutes?! There’s something about the pairing of caramelised onions and tomatoes that is just SOOO good isn’t there? It’s definitely a favourite flavour combo of mine, and then when you add the garlic and baby marrows into the mix…..mmm delish!!!
If it’s an incredibly healthy, delicious, vegetarian, satisfying, fresh and quick to prepare meal you’re after tonight then you’ve found it!! These are the ultimate healthy Curried Veggie Burgers and you’re going to LOVE them!
All you need for these bowls are sweet potato, potatoes, onion, garlic, carrots, broccoli, curry powder, egg, red cabbage, baby marrows and olive oil! SO much goodness packed into one little bowl!!
Spicy, flavoursome, hearty and comforting…this really is the best Chicken Curry ever! And it only takes a grand total of 60 minutes to make, and for half of that time it’s just bubbling away happily on the stove top and you can be buzzing around getting things done. Or putting your feet up!?!
Whatever it is you feel like doing while this happy Sweet & Sour Cape Malay Curry cooks, after half an hour of gentle simmering you will have the most scrumptious and saucy curry to enjoy…

If you like asparagus, this is YOUR quiche!! I strongly suggest you go and make it immediately so we can talk about how amazing it is…And swoon over its deliciousness together. SWOON!
This quiche makes 8 decent size slices so it’s perfect for a gathering with friends or a large family meal. It has a rustic impressiveness about it, and the slices cut like a dream – so clean. It keeps in the fridge extremely well so left overs can be devoured the next day, if there are any!! Really great for a packed lunch.
This is my simple weeknight dinner recipe #2!! A Fresh & Light Summer Veggie & Fish Pie that will knock your socks off….In a subtle fish & veg kind of way! Sometimes less is more.
I’m happy to tell you that this fish pie takes just 30 minutes to put together, and after 40 minutes of nestling in a nice hot oven it will be bubbling and golden and ready to eat. This is a great way to introduce your kids to fish – it’s very subtly fishy, so not overpowering, and it’s packed with summer veggies.
