Today I’m sharing a delicious pasta dish that has quickly become one of our new family favourites. It can be eaten warm or cold, so perfect for serving as a main meal or packing into lunchboxes. It contains a wonderful array of nutrients, textures and flavours. The tangy Balsamic glaze really makes those greens pop and sing!
In today’s post, I’m sharing my family’s favourite Saturday night Mexican Bean Tacos. This recipe is just perfect for when you need something quick and easy to prepare. It’s so tasty and filling! And even though my family has eaten this meal hundreds of times now, we still look forward to it every weekend. There is something really fun and satisfying about biting into a crispy taco shell!
Today I’m sharing a delicious mushroom and lentil ragout that is hearty, warming and filling. It’s just perfect for serving on a chilly day! Rich in umami flavour, this plant-based ragout is simple to make and uses basic pantry ingredients. It is also super cheap too! We love to serve it with mashed potato, but jacket potato, pasta, polenta or rice would also be great options!
With its mild taste and soft texture, dhal has got to be the most family-friendly Indian dish! I first introduced dhal to Lucien when he was a toddler. As a twist on the classic recipe – and to bring a touch of sweetness and creaminess to the dish – I added some creamed coconut and butternut squash. He absolutely loved it! Fifteen years on, and this recipe is still a firm family favourite. We make it at least a couple of times a month!
Thinly sliced and pan-fried in olive oil, Brussels sprouts take on a delicious nutty flavour and crisp texture, that is so far removed from the texture and flavour of boiled or steamed sprouts! If you know any Brussels sprout haters, encourage them to give this recipe a try. It might just win them over!
With its golden and green hues, this quick and easy plant-based risotto is just perfect for this season! The stars of this dish are butternut squash and watercress, which are not only delicious and super colourful, but they are also rich in immune-boosting phytonutrients (like betacarotene) that will leave us glowing from the inside out!
