Pumpkin, Fig and Chickpea Salad

pumpkin recipes

This is a really filling salad. And its also a sweet salad which I loved. Im a fan of figs and they were a really nice combination of flavours with the spices and coriander. BUT once again I got complaints from the husband (no surprises here lol). I even questioned myself about posting this recipe, because he hated it so much.But I ate the left overs the next day and I still liked it the next day. I would love  somebody elses opinion on this one.

He didn’t like the honey in it. Um what honey? lol I think he meant the sweetness of the fig. I swear this man thinks he has an allergy to fruit!Continue Reading

Mushrooms Stuffed with Char-Grilled Vegetables

stuffed mushrooms

I love mushrooms, I am just happy to fry up some mushrooms with a little butter and milk and have them on their own. But even better when I have enough time to get a little fancy. No complaints form the husband either, he liked them also. AND he didn’t ask where his steak was lol. He was happy to eat just the mushrooms. We had two each for our main meal. Continue Reading

Preserved lemon Potato Salad

potato salad

This is a potato salad served dissected really lol. It looks pretty until its all mixed together. So this is just a pretty way of serving potato salad. This is one of the recipes I come across while looking for things to cook with my recently made preserved lemons. I got my inspiration from the one and only Martha Stewart, mine is the lazy version.

Well not lazy, I just cannot for the life of me make my own mayo or aioli. I’ve tried a gazillion times and Im done wasting egg yolks. I’ve watched youtube tutorials and everything, and I just can not do it. So mine is served with a jazzed up store bought mayo lol. Which is what I always do with any type of potato salad I make anyway. Continue Reading

Avocado and Pear Salad

avocado and pear salad

This is a really nice change from the normal salad Im used to. My usual salad consists of lettuce, tomato, cucumber and onion thrown in a container. Pop the lid on and shake like a maniac then just eat it out of the container. How boring, any wonder I’m sick of salads. So in my hunt to find interesting and healthy food I come up with this. When I make it for myself I of course only use a quarter of my ingredients and make it fresh everyday. But its easy just to pop everything in a container and cut off and use as much as you need for 1 serve.

Its good to set myself quantities as I tend to go overboard with feta and any other type of cheese. I can always make a healthy salad into an unhealthy salad. Im sure there are plenty of people who do thisContinue Reading
