I’m on a bit of a health kick with my recipes just now and this kale and spinach souffle omelette is no exception. Sometimes you just want to ditch the carbs and really get into those veggies and know that the comfort food you’re making is also super healthy too.
This is a simple healthy fish pie recipe whereby I mean that I’ve omitted the usual potato topping in favour of a creamy sauce with almonds. This is for the days when you want to go all out healthy and have some comfort food at the same time.
Minced beef with courgettes and hummus is one of my Greek inspired dishes and a real comfort food staple in this house. Any variation of mince is considered standard fare here in Scotland, we are brought up on mince and tatties after-all, but this dish raises the humble mince to new levels.
Beans and pulses as a staple of the Mediterranean diet which is partly why it is such a healthy way of eating. This simple recipe for black eyed beans with spinach and fennel is tasty, healthy and vegetarian too, oh, and it’s Greek as well so that makes it even better in my book!
Simple vegetable dishes are a staple of Mediterranean cooking and these honey roasted courgettes with feta are a little taste of Greek sunshine on a plate. Ideal for serving as part of a meze style starter with other small dishes or as a vegetable side dish to your main course.
This is summer eating at it’s best, light yet filling, healthy and tasty too. My salmon and pesto rolls make the perfect lunch to eat outdoors with friends (should the weather oblige) or a good light supper dish too served with this Provencal style salad.
Stuffed veggies are very much part of the Mediterranean diet especially in Greece. In our little village we tend to be given the extra peppers, tomatoes and other veggies when friends and neighbours have a glut in their gardens. This easy recipe for stuffed peppers is a great way to use sweet tasty red peppers.
Scotch eggs are a staple for picnics in summer time, they are handy food in the true sense of the word, everything packed into one piece, no mess. These mini Scotch eggs are made with quails eggs and are perfect for picnics and parties.
