Chicken and Cabbage Stir Fry

cabbage recipes

Now I know this doesn’t look that appetising, especially when its main ingredient is cabbage. BUT its actually really nice. My tip is don’t cook your cabbage for long, leave a little crunch. Unless you like it cooked a little more. I know my mother likes to cook the life out of her cabbage, well I know she used too lol.

I am on a health kick at the moment, and trying to consume 1200 calories per day. I think rabbits consume more than 1200 calories per day, REALLY!

But anyway this is really low in calories.

spinach pie recipes

This recipe really surprised me, I wasn’t going to cook it as I’m really fussy with spinach dishes because I actually don’t like spinach. Well silverbeet anyway, I actually love baby spinach in all my salads.

The best may to describe the taste of silverbeet would be DIRT. lol I hate the stuff. But it is really good for you, so I was really happy to find this recipe and LOVE IT!

This pie has a perfect balance of herbs which takes that silverbeet taste away. Especially the mint, one of my favourite herbs.

Pumpkin and Spinach Rotolo Bake

A great vegetarian recipe and the family won’t even notice that they are not getting any meat. This is a reasonably easy recipe. And to make it even quicker you can use a jar of store bought pasta sauce. But if you have the time make your own, it always tastes better and you know exactly what’s going into it.Continue Reading
