Bolognese Sauce with Hidden Veg

Bolognese Sauce with Hidden Veg – Serves 4

My fiancĂ©e is one of the fussiest eaters I know and really doesn’t enjoy eating a lot of veg. Occasionally I’ll find ways of adding veg into our meals (with him knowing of course) so we both still get some of our 5 a day. This recipe is for my bolognese sauce with hidden veg, it’s one of the best sauces I have created to date and goes great with homemade pasta.  If you’re a parent with fussy little ones, or even a fussy partner like me, this will please everyone!

Pasta Bake with Chicken and Pesto

Pasta Bake serves about 4 – 6 people

Who doesn’t love a pasta bake? This makes a great quick weeknight meal. So delicious, cheap and fast, everyone will love it! The recipe works best with a chunky homemade pesto (recipe coming soon), otherwise, a good quality shop bought one will be fine also.

For this recipe, we used a ready cooked chicken from the local supermarket. However, if you want to use fresh chicken breast, you can dice it up and fry it or bake it in the oven and shred it yourself.

Homemade Garlic Chicken Kiev

Makes 4 Chicken Kievs

I love garlic and I love chicken, so of course, I love kievs! But it’s so hard these days to find a good chicken kiev that’s not completely processed and doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg. This recipe gives you the best of both worlds, cheap to make and not minced up with other chicken bits you’d rather not know about! Best of all, the leftover egg and bread crumbs can be used to make my delicious crumb cakes!

Crustless Quiche Recipe

Crustless Quiche

Crustless Quiche Serves Approx 6

For as long as I can remember my mum has made this crustless quiche for our family. She’d sometimes have to make 2 so we’d have lunches for the next day but usually, they both wouldn’t see the night out. This recipe is just the basis to a great crustless quiche. Mum has added all sorts of stuff to it before to use up ingredients we had on hand, like tomato, mushrooms and chorizo, so feel free to add what ever you like! Serve with salad for a light, healthy meal or with a side of delicious crispy smashed potatoes or even garlic bread!

Creamy Coconut Rice Recipe

Creamy Coconut Rice

Makes enough Creamy Coconut Rice for 4 people

I still remember the first time I ever tried coconut rice, it was on a long flight on the way back from a trip to the UK. I thought to myself “OMG I have to learn to make this”. Over time I’ve adjusted the measurements and I believe I’ve come up with the best creamy coconut rice to accompany any curry, like Thai Red Curry or even our Quick Chicken Curry or Chicken Rendang.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of basmati rice, rinsed well
  • 2 1/2 cups of water
  • 1 400g tin coconut cream
  • 3 cm piece of ginger sliced
  • 1 stick lemongrass, bashed and cut into pieces
  • 1 tsp salt

 

Method:

  1. Place the rinsed rice into a rice cooker along with the water, coconut cream, lemongrass, ginger and salt and turn your rice cooker on and start cooking.
  2. Stir every 5-10 minutes till done. Discard the ginger. Serve with curry or it would make a great accompaniment to any dish with spice!
