These slow cooker lentil and quinoa tacos are a super low effort dinner that’s also healthy, full of flavour, and endlessly customisable!
I need to use my slow cooker more often! It made these lentil and quinoa tacos an absolute doddle to prepare. Just cook the tasty filling in the Crock-Pot, then wrap it up in some tortillas or taco shells, pile them up with your favourite toppings, and you’ve got yourself an easy, healthy, delicious dinner.
My ultimate guide for how to make an easy risotto from scratch – in any flavour you like! It really isn’t tricky.
If you’ve ever wondered how to make an easy risotto from scratch, this is the post for you!
And just in case you’re a mushroom hater (I know there are a few of you oddities out there), don’t worry – for the purposes of this post I made a simple mushroom risotto with spinach, since it’s one of my favourites, but I also talk you through how to make your risotto in any other flavour, using any vegetable you fancy. The basic formula is the same for any variety of vegetarian risotto.
So, consider this post your ultimate guide to cooking risotto from scratch!
If you’re not overly familiar with lentils (or even if you are!), I urge you to try this creamy roasted carrot dal. It’s a great introduction to cooking with lentils – super easy, super cheap, and most importantly, unbelievably delicious! It’s definitely one of those meals that takes you by surprise with just how good it is. Sometimes the simple meals really are the best.
This Mexican bean and potato bake is a hearty, satisfying one pot dinner with plenty of fresh veg!
If you asked me what my ideal meal would be, it would be something hearty and cheesy, but still with plenty of fresh veggies. Basically – this Mexican bean and potato bake. It’s exactly the sort of thing I love.
This luxurious creamy veggie pasta is made in just one pot – the pasta is cooked right in with the sauce! An easy, crowd-pleasing dinner.
Just when I thought cheesy pasta couldn’t get any better… I made this one pot creamy veggie pasta. That’s right – it’s all made in just one saucepan, including all those vegetables, and the creamy, cheesy sauce! This is a real winner for busy evenings when you just need something hearty and satisfying on the table quickly.
An easy and low calorie vegetarian Chinese curry, just like my favourite Chinese chip shop makes! The perfect fakeaway.
If you’re reading this, you either know exactly what I mean by ‘chip shop Chinese curry’, or if you’re not a fellow Brit, you may have no clue. Hopefully by the end of this post, you’ll understand what I’m talking about!
Breaded mushrooms are one of those things that I always order if I spot them on the menu in a restaurant – especially if they’re served with plenty of garlic mayo for dipping. Juicy roasted mushrooms in a crunchy, crispy coating – who could resist?!
I made this simple homemade version in my Tefal Actifry. Over the next few months, I’ll be showing you how to use an Actifry to cook delicious and healthy dishes that bring different levels of ‘wow factor’. This is a ‘level one’ recipe. It’s still absolutely delicious, but it’s nice and simple – a hearty and healthy well-known dish.
These easy Bombay potatoes are a simple and healthy side dish with tons of flavour – perfect to serve alongside your favourite Indian curry!
I don’t share side dishes here too often, but that’s mostly just because I’m often pretty boring with them – plain rice, salad, garlic bread, roasted veggies… I rarely get creative, and usually put my efforts into the main part of my meal instead. But I do think side dishes deserve to get a bit more love every now and then, and these easy Bombay potatoes are just the thing! They’re really easy to prepare, and will lift your Indian meal to the next level.
I don’t make veggie burgers too often. I always think of them as being a bit of a faff, to be honest – so when I decided to make these cheesy lentil burgers, I knew my aim would be to make them as straightforward and easy to make as I possibly could, while still being completely delicious – and I succeeded! These lentil burgers were thoroughly, thoroughly enjoyable.
The day I made them, we ate them for lunch and again for dinner, and didn’t mind one bit.
A super simple vegetarian dinner in just 15 minutes! This halloumi piccata is an irresistible mixture of lemon, butter and capers, served over salty halloumi cheese.
Apologies for the third halloumirecipe in as many weeks! I seem to be going through a halloumi phase at the moment. It’s lasted about 10 years so far. No more halloumi until at least next week, I promise.
I just couldn’t wait to share this halloumi piccata recipe. If you’re a fan of garlic, butter, and cheese, you will love this easy 15 minute dinner.
