Stuffed Courgettes

We’re having a bumper crop of courgettes at the minute thanks to some amazing sunny weather and lots of rain too. I’ve also had two rather large marrows because I missed them underneath all the huge leaves and didn’t go down to the vegetable patch for two days because of the rain.  I came up with this recipe and it worked really well, Oliver asked me as soon as he’d finished when i could make it again so I consider that a win!

Lentil & quinoa salad

Lentil & Quinoa Salad

This is a really summery salad.  I love to make it for a summer’s evening barbecue or have it for a work lunch.  I eat it with a big spoon of houmous and beetroot salad.  It would also go great with some warm green veg such as green beans, spinach or tender stem broccoli.

Chocolate & Almond Granola

Chocolate and Almond Granola

This granola is so simple and quick to make and you can store it for weeks in an airtight container.  You can eat it straight out the jar as a snack, with milk and/or yogurt for breakfast and you could always add in some fresh fruit, cherries would go great.  I like oat milk and Alpro plain soya yogurt with almond or The Coconut Collaborative plain coconut milk yogurt.

Healthy Strawberry and Chocolate Muffins

These muffins are gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free but so lovely and very quick to make.  They’re inspired by Livia’s Kitchen Raspberry and Almond muffins. The sweetness of the strawberries is complemented by the bitterness of the raw chocolate.  The ground almonds and strawberries keeps them lovely and moist.

Three Bean Chilli

This is a recipe that I made up based on a meat chilli I have been making since the boys were weaning, I think I got it from a weaning cookbook.  It’s super healthy and warming for when the nights are drawing in and you want something comforting to eat.

Raspberry & Vanilla Overnight Oats

I never liked porridge until about six months ago when I started trying to eat healthier and went in search of recipes to help me do it. When I found Deliciously Ella’s baked porridge I was hooked. Not only did I now like porridge but I found a way to make it without loads of refined […]

My “Chuck it all in” Vegetable Soup

This soup is brilliant for using up veg that you have in the cupboard or fridge that may be starting to go past its best.  It’s also great because it means that the kids will have quite a lot of their ‘five a day’ in one meal and because it’s smooth they don’t act suspicious about what’s in it.  In fact whenever I make it they ever moan and quite often ask for seconds.
