Spicy Baked Chicken Strips

Today I am sharing an easy and quick to make chicken recipe. It is a one bowl kind of recipe; the chicken is cut into the desired size and shape and pretty much mixed with the marinade and then popped into the oven. It is a reasonably healthy dish as it is baked and only a limited amount of oil added to the marinade. It goes great with some Turmeric rice, salad or even some roast veggies. The spice comes in from the addition of sriracha, which is a hot sauce. If you do not have sriracha, you can use … Continue reading Spicy Baked Chicken Strips

Carrot Corn Pea Bean Spinach Soup

It is winter here and although it does not get cold enough to snow here in Perth, temperatures in single digits (Celsius) makes us want something warm and comforting for dinner. I wanted to make something with a mix of veggies in it, and not too heavy. When I looked in the fridge and realised I had quite a few odds and ends left over from previous meal preps (I had made some Mexican themed burritos earlier and had left over corn and beans from it), I decided to use them and add in some other veggies I had in … Continue reading Carrot Corn Pea Bean Spinach Soup

Barramundi in Creamy Garlic sauce

Smothered in a lovely creamy garlic sauce this recipe is bursting with flavour. It is simple and easy to make and so delicious. I used fresh garlic and plenty of it. Spinach and the sundried pesto add lovely flavour. I used skinless Barramundi fillets, we as a family love it, but you can use any fish of your choice. I did season it with salt and pepper in the beginning and seared the fish so that it would not break up and also gives it a beautiful golden colour. Fish does cook really quick so while doing this step of … Continue reading Barramundi in Creamy Garlic sauce

Turkey Mushroom and Spinach Meatball Curry

We were sitting at home and watching a cooking show, the chef made some meatballs and my son turned to me and said “Can we please make some meatball curry and maybe some Naan to go with it”. So, that is how I ended making this over the weekend. I usually make meatballs with beef but this time I thought I would do it a little differently and the family loved it. The meatballs are a combination of turkey mince, mushrooms, spinach, red onion and some lovely spices. I like to incorporate some veggies into the meatballs so that way … Continue reading Turkey Mushroom and Spinach Meatball Curry

Tandoori Chicken

An easy and simple recipe made with accessible ingredients. The chicken is infused with spices and yoghurt and baked until golden with some charred bits. This tandoori is tender, moist, juicy and so YUM. The yoghurt makes the chicken tender and moist. I made this in my pizza oven this time but have made it many times before in my regular oven. But broiling it is necessary to get the desired charred results. This is quite a healthy dish and keto friendly for those on a keto diet. The traditional tandoori has a deep red colour that can be achieved … Continue reading Tandoori Chicken

Simple Seared Tuna Steaks

This is a very simple, easy and elegant way to prepare tuna steaks. It takes only a few minutes to prepare and is bursting with flavour. My husband had this on one of his work trips and loved it and came back home and wanted me to give this a go. He was my sous chef for a bit. My son is not a big fan of fish and was very sceptical as he tasted it but he ended up loving this. I served this tuna steaks drizzled with a homemade vinaigrette with sushi rice and a green salad A … Continue reading Simple Seared Tuna Steaks

Quick and Easy Turmeric Rice

My son is not a big fan of rice and frowns if I say there is rice for dinner but he does NOT complain when I make this. This rice is quick to make and is an amazing accompaniment with a variety of dishes. It pairs well with Indian or Mediterranean dishes. This turmeric rice is my go-to on a weeknight especially. It is not only delicious but so easy to put together. The chicken stock adds a lovely flavour but you can use vegetable stock if that is your preference. I used Basmati rice, as we like the flavour … Continue reading Quick and Easy Turmeric Rice
