Salmon Noodle Bowl with Green Thai Broth

Green Thai curry is absolutely one of my favourite flavours of all the smorgasbord that is Asian cuisine. I’ve made more green chicken curries than I can remember but I wanted to use salmon this time and I wanted to make it a bit lighter. I’ve made a few Thai curry soup type dishes before…

Vegan Courgetti Pad Thai

As regular readers of this blog will know, I am an avid lover of vegetables, and always have been. I was the strange child that asked for a second helping of brussel sprouts at Sunday dinner. There’s a huge movement towards veganism and plant based eating in today’s society and whilst I can’t see myself…

Moroccan Spiced Lamb Shanks with Chickpeas

When I do a weekend shop and I haven’t quite decided what I want to cook sometimes I’ll go along to the supermarket, see what’s on sale or special offer and base my Sunday lunch around what I find. A great place to look for bargains is in the reduced section. A lot of meat…

Vegetarian January

Spurred on by the over-indulgence of Christmas, and a desire to generally be a better person in January, I felt a little bit of a detox was in order. Veganuary is all the rage this year and I can’t log into social media without seeing or reading something about it. However, I’ve never been that…

One Pan Hake with Tomatoes & Beans

This is dish is one of my favourite midweek meals, mainly because it involves almost zero effort yet it feels a little bit fancy. I’ve made it in many various forms with different types of beans and different types of fish but this combination has to be my favourite. Any white fish will work, I…

Prawn & Mango Courgetti Salad with Sweet Chilli Dressing

In recent months I’ve really been trying to pay a lot more attention to what I put into my body and how it responds. Last year, after quite a long period of trying to figure out why I was getting stomach pains, I had my gall bladder removed. It’s a pretty minor operation and very…

My Leftover Challenge

If you follow me on Instagram you’ll be aware that last week I set myself a bit of a challenge. Normally I’m the one that travels for work, but this time The Boyfriend was away, so finding myself rattling around at home on my own I decided to set myself a foodie challenge. When he…

The Saucepot’s Lunchbox: Vegetarian Antipasti Cous Cous

Lunch boxes have become a huge deal in my house. It used to just be me on my lonesome trying to be good and healthy and save a bit of money. Then The Boyfriend decided he quite liked the look of what I was making and then The Step-Daughter decided she didn’t like school dinners….

Minty Coleslaw with a Kick

Coleslaw is a bit of a controversial subject in my house. I hated coleslaw a child. I knew nothing other than the standard supermarket tubs and it just looked like weird creamy slop that I didn’t want to eat. It wasn’t until later in life when I tried slightly less unappetising looking coleslaw that I…
