This Asian beef salad is light enough to have for lunch and hearty enough to have for dinner. Whether you are going for a satay feel with the peanuts or using cashews this is a delicious dish all around. Plus the dressing isn’t full of sugar which is a win.
Unless you are feeding a host of people, a whole roast turkey can be pretty difficult to eat in one sitting. Enter this salad which is perfect for using up the leftovers and is super healthy too.
There’s nothing more quintessential than an Aussie prawn dish at a barbecue with friends. Not only are they tasty, but they’re paced with protein and super nutritious. Pair them with fresh mango and smoky paprika for a deliciously light and filling lunch.
When I had no idea how to cook, I relied on throwing things into a pan with a splash of oil. A classic stir fry is a super simple, 1-pan situation that is convenient after a long day or week – no chef skills required. Minimal prep and cooking time, throw this together when you need something tasty in a flash!
This delicious and simple bowl can be whipped up in 10 minutes or less. Such a simple, nourishing dish, with all the robust flavours of Mexicana. Save yourself a heap of time an effort by using up that tin of beans in the cupboard too. Double win!
There’s something divine about lemon and pepper together. The zesty flavours are awesome on both seafood and chicken. Here I’ve added a bit of extra spice and paired it with a low-carb rice option for a lean and green dinner.
There’s nothing quite like barbecued chicken cooked to perfection on a hot grill. Pair it with some simple seasonal greens, and fresh pesto and homemade dukkah for your new brunch favourite.
These pancakes are inspired by dumplings I once tried my hand at (and failed miserably). These guys are much easier – no messy filling to contend with, and even better, become a pancake hybrid when fried in sesame oil. Perfect as an appetiser with friends, or as a quick dinner after work.
Nasi Goreng literally means ‘fried rice’ in Indonesian and Malay, traditionally cooked in sunflower oil or margarine, and topped with a fried egg. Whilst a little fried food can work in a balanced diet, the oils used to cook the food are important for your health. Sesame oil gives a great flavour to this dish and contains heart-healthy fats, but you can also use coconut or olive oil too. I’ve also swapped the usual white rice for brown (which contains the nutritious bran and germ) for a nice take on your take-out.
Buying a whole fish is often more economical than buying the fillet. It also makes it a cinch to prep! Ask your fishmonger or supermarket counter to clean and scale a snapper for you, then throw it on a baking tray, add some simple flavours and you’ve got one tasty, nourishing meal in under 30 minutes.
