Hubby often has lemon pepper tuna with salad on a wrap. Here i made one withou the wrap fot my lunch.
I love Vietnamese food and I had all the ingredients to make Lemongrass Marinade. It can be for Pork, Chicken or Steak. I added it to a vermicelli Salad Bowl.
Cooking together this meal was great knowing the salad was all homegrown from the vegepod. We made our own schnitzels too and cooked them in coconut oil. It made a double batch of chicken schnitzels so we have another meal and less mess to make.
Pan fried chicken seasoned with sea-salt and pepper cooked in extra virgin olive oil with garden salad (iceberg lettuce, organic cherry tomatoes, cucumber, capsicum, organic carrot, mushrooms) and pickled ginger and seedless grapes
Using up the last of groceries for the week. Peri Peri sauce with pressure cooker chicken and salad doesn’t get much simpler.
At the start of the week I make up salad bowls for hubby’s work lunches. Some days I make the same with a bowl for myself. These are this weeks salads so far.
Fish Finger wraps became a favourite of mine when visiting relatives many years ago. I cooked these today in the convection microwave under the fish setting and were done in 3 minutes cooked in oven section of the microwave. Soo good and quick to prepare.
Lovely light salads for summer time. They can be eaten on their own or as a combo as shown below. Get your salad fix today. They are filling meals on their own.
Using up leftovers. This is a great breakfast, lunch or dinner.
The more colours the better for you. I recently heard you should be having 21 different foods from vegetables and fruits that are colourful a week.
Bean Salad #3 is a great filler for a meal without a lot of prep and goes great with pan-fried chicken. You could also team it with Fish.
Hubbies turn to cook. Another quick meal to prepare. Simply cook the rissoles in non stick skillet with cooking spray. Toss together the salad and the meal is ready.
Invited the family to a bbq picnic in the park. We did the catering. Nice healthy dinner. Free electric bbq were available.
Salads don’t need to be boring lettuce and tomato. Here are some that I use all the time. Great for a bring a dish and everyone loves them.
Pete evans recipe in his latest paleo book had a similar one. This is my version of that as i changed it to what i had available. A tasty slaw that I will revert back to. You could add a dressing but I used lemon juice and didn’t need to add another dressing.
I used my own homemade greek seasoning for this recipe. I will be adding more of my homemade seasoning mixes in future dishes so stay tuned.
Heat wave and I don’t want to cook so these are a easy quick fix.
Bean salads are substitutes for meat for me and a great filler. Can be used with other meats, fish, prawns, poultry or on its own as a stand alone salad. Great if you have to take a dish to friends and its a little different than the normal salad that everyone brings. I have since found organic bean tins and tins with salt reduced. I always rinse the beans before using so it doesn’t have the brine they are preserved in.
Love mangos and they were on special this week. So i made this yummy salad. I used my vegepod cucumber, red onion, and mixed leaves with smoked salmon and green shallots and arranged them on a plate. No cooking involved.
Same ingredients for 2 salads shown and one with dressing. The third salad similar ingredients but swapped olives for vegepod cucumber with different dressing
Base salad: Mixed leaves, yellow tomato, red onion, celery, carrot, pitted olives.
I went out to the vegepod today and discovered there were 2 cucumbers ready for harvest. My Chives in the herb pot were also ready. Steaming fish in microwave is quick and easy but a healthy way to cook fish.
My Very last meal for 2017. I cooked this dinner to share a meal at church to end the year.
Fish Cocktails, Sea Shanties and Chips are all cooked in the oven rather than saturated in oil in a deep fryer gives the same result without added fat. Yes they take a little longer to cook but has same great taste. Team with tartare sauce or lemon wedges and garden salad or on their own with tartare/lemon/aioli or sweet chili sauce.
I love lamb but don’t have it often. I got some lamb steaks on sale and needed to use them up. Teamed here with Tossed Garden Salad and Aldi Alfredo Pasta was a nice combination for lunch. All cooking was done in pan fry.
