Weekly eats – chickpea curry and a healthy chilli

March 4th, 2014

Oooh some very good recipes last week.

My new post is up on Brixton Blog – a quick and easy chickpea curry. You can whip it up in the time it would take for a takeaway curry to be delivered.

Red lentil coconut soup

Whenever we make this, it always comes out very thick, so we sometimes have it with rice. Either it’s cheap, simple and DELICIOUS. A great one to have in the freezer too. Recipe here.

Salmon and butter bean mash

This recipe may exactly jump out at you (and the name is stupid), but it’s actually  really easy, surprisingly delicious and low carb too – if you’re into that kind of thing. Recipe here.

Chicken tacos

I am unapologetic in my love for Jamie Oliver. I’m sure he doesn’t write most of his own recipes anymore, but he clearly has a fantastic team and I think his recipes are superb. Especially the fact that they’re mostly quite balanced with lots of veggies. Anyway, gushing over, this recipe was lovely. A couple of notes: we did not make our own tortillas (I love the Tesco values ones as they’re quite small) nor could we get tomatillos (I used ordinary tomatoes). Also, we kind of ruined a frying pan trying to blacken the tomatoes, so maybe don’t bother. AND, it does not serve 16 people – I would say more like 4-6. Recipe here.

Healthy chicken chilli

This was so tasty, and I love that it’s full of beans and lentils too. You could eat it on it’s own as a kind of thick stew with a dollop of yoghurt. Or with some crusty bread. We had it with rice (the obvious choice). Recipe here.
