This is a really fresh, light and zingy salad. If you are not a fan of tofu or don’t have any in, then don’t worry too much, There is plenty enough here to fill you up without it. When you read the recipe it does seem a bit of a faff, but it is actually really easy to put together and well worth it. Continue reading “Thai Noodle Salad”
You can basically make any salad for this, they key is in the peanutty sauce and noddles, but the randomness of the salad ingredients used, actually work. Ingredients below make 2-3 salads depending on how hungry you are. Or in Monkeychops’ case, one giant salad all for him! Continue reading “Peanut & Seasame Noodle Doodles”
Kind of a weird one making this if you are veggie or vegan. Rolling the beetroot mixture into beet balls is like rolling mince beef, which after a few veggie years freaked me out a wee bit. But the taste far outweighs this and so they pack a real hearty, meaty punch. Continue reading ““Eat Beet, not Meat”..Balls”
I feel that it is a bit of a cheat putting this on here as I really don’t have a recipe as such. I make it up as I go along dependent on what I am making for dinner the night before and what we have in the fridge.
For the best part of a year I have been fuelling me and monkey chopswith “swizzle lunch pots”, a one pot, no fuss, no mess, healthy dish! Continue reading “Miso Lunch Noodle Pots”
Thought I’d give this a try one morning and was really surprised how the tofu actually tasted like real scrambled eggs. Admittedly what we served it on wasn’t the healthiest. Fried Potato Scones, as we call them in Scotland, or potato cakes here in Yorkshire. I think in the good old US of A, they are like a Jewish potato pancakes. They are my guilty pleasure for breakfast on a weekend and an easy cook up, for when we are away in our camper van. They are the only thing I ask my parents to bring when they visit us. You can get them locally in some shops, but just not the same. Anyway, as they say you can take the girl out of Scotland, but not Scotland out of the girl. Of course, they have to be fried in coconut oil these days.
First off, don’t be put off by the title!! Yes it contains a tin of chickpeas, but you really don’t taste them. If you like nutty, seedy, tasty energy bars then these are definitely for you, ideal for a lunchbox snack or to take out on a run. They are a go to for monkeyboy on his long runs and seem to sustain him as well as any shop bought energy bars, but without the sugar, saturated fats, crappy proteins and sickly overload. The ginger in them has been a recent addition, which tastes great and also has good anti-inflammatory properties.
