I wanted to cook a special meal for wonderful partner that was a little bit different to what we usually had so I thought I would create us a little bit of paradise from our very home. Continue reading
My parents were coming over for dinner and I was feeling pretty fatigued, but still i wanted to make something from scratch, that was quick & easy but also wholesome, healthy and most importantly tasty!!!
When cooking for others I like to make stuff that they would have no idea was GF and this really does the trick.
This is another great recipe to make when having people over for dinner, and like the banoffee pie (Link) I made on the same night this is completely gluten free and my guests had no idea!
I made this mistake of making this after a couple of glasses of wine rather than before so the presentation is not quite my best, the much more sensible approach would have been to make it ahead of time.
Great served with rocket and spinach salad with a balsamic glaze.
It has been a bit of a mission of mine to come up with some super tasty gluten free main meals that are both tasty and quick to make, as well as non gluten free people such as my partner not feeling like they are missing out on their beloved gluten.
This dish was a bit of an experiment and this is the third time that I made it and it do believe I have perfected it, this thai inspired dish is a bit of a mix between pad thai and chicken satay, made with rice noodles keeps both the GF tummys and Gluten eaters happy. The poached egg on top makes the a super yummy sauce when you crack open the yolk 🙂
For those who don’t know this week is invisible illness awareness week (8-14th September) and to raise awareness I am going to post a blog a day whether that be in my new personal updates section or even a recipe.
I started off the week by answering invisible awareness week’s “30 Things About My Invisible Illness You May Not Know” (Link) but today I am going to do a bit of a u turn and talk about a great snack which is naturally GF but also something hassle free and nutritious , so that people suffering from an invisible illness hopefully would have no problem making.
This amazing snack simple nutritious is … Corn. Yes I know it might not be what you expected me to say. But on a day like today, where I have been to work for a couple of hours got home mid afternoon it is absolutely perfect. Continue reading
So tonight for tea after a fairly busy weekend, I wanted something easy and nutritious for tea. Like most of my meals I kind of made it up as I went along but I was so please with result I thought I would share it and save it on here so I actually remember for future reference. Continue reading
I love falafels, they are just soooo tasty!!!! So many recipes are quite complicated and take a while due to having to soak chickpeas for agesss. When I discovered this recipe I was very sceptical to how nice they would be considering from start to finish they only take about 10 mins.
I decided that the falafels by themselves simply wasn’t enough chickpeas, I may or may not be obsessed! So I decided to make these gorgeous Chickpea Flat breads/ Pancakes they are somewhere in between a pancake and a flat bread. Continue reading
This is a simple and delicious recipe, that I adapted to make GF from the Hairy Bikers Diet cook book. Not only is this recipe GF it is also less than 300 calories per portion.
