Pasta with Tomato and Greens sauce

Sometimes its hard to think of a healthy meal that’s quick to make. I’ve made this pasta sauce for years,  it comes together very quickly and chances are you will probably have most of the ingredients at home already so it makes a good midweek meal when you just want to have dinner quickly when you get home from work. For a more special meal, jazz it up a little by adding some chicken or prawns or serve with garlic bread and salad. By ” greens” I mean any green leafy vegetable. The day I photographed this I used beet greens (yes you can eat them!) but Ive also used kale, the leaves that we do call greens, or the dark green cabbage called Cavalo Nero. I add a pinch of sugar to the sauce as canned tomatoes are a little acidic For a delicious seafood pasta try this Chilli […]

Asparagus & Halloumi Salad

I have done a fair bit of moaning about the lack of British asparagus this spring. It’s not that there haven’t been any at all there have, but from Peru, then a little closer, from Italy. Due to the late cold spell we had here there just weren’t any British asparagus. Well happily as I write this the sun has been shining and finally asparagus from Britain are in the stores. I am guilty of being a little lazy when preparing asparagus, just a quick steam or raw in salad is my usual style.  To celebrate my British asparagus purchase I went a little fancy and made this salad which actually is really simple and healthy. Asparagus are loaded with nutrients and antioxidants and are said to help fight cancer and slow the aging process.   This salad makes a great lunch on its own or accompanied by some grilled […]

Red Lentil Curry

This curry is a real favourite in my house. Its packed with flavour and really versatile.  Lentils are full of fibre, protein and iron so they are  really good to include in your diet.  I like to serve this as a main meal served with a naan bread or chapatti as a quick vegetarian meal. I have also served it as a side dish to chicken for meat eating guests. With a little stock added it could even be a soup. Another favourite of mine is Spinach and Lentil Soup. Green lentils can be used rather than red, the fresh tomatoes can easily be substituted with tinned and the cream can be omitted if watching the calories.  The ingredient list is fairly long but its mostly spices and the recipe comes together really easily.

Apple Crisp

I should be thinking about lighter food such as salad and the summer fruits coming into the shops but its pouring with rain as I write this, the weather we have had for the last week or so is more like November than April and post Easter I still have somewhat of a sweet craving!  I am not really a crumble fan so I like to make this crisp, I don’t know if with the addition of oats I like to feel I’m being slightly more healthy! The oats do make a crisper, lighter topping than traditional crumble. Its super fast to put together,  melting the butter makes the mixing of the topping makes really quick, in no time you have a delicious warm dessert. If you want an alternative apple dessert that’s equally delicious as this Apple Crisp, try this recipe for Grandma’s Apple Pie. Print Apple Crisp Author: Jayne […]
