Things I have been cooking lately #172: Super food salad

Last week it was really warm so I got very excited and decided it was spring. I was so excited that I decided to buy a whole lot of ingredients to make salads. It turned out it was not spring. It was basically spring teasing us and then deciding to hold off until a yet to be named date. Fortunately even though it was cold and windy when I made this, it was still delicious so we didn’t feel too sad that we had to eat it wearing jumpers.

Things I have been cooking lately #110: Spicy mango chicken with brown rice

I like easy meals that you can just chuck in the oven and with just a little prep up front this tasty chicken dish comes together really easily. I liked it so much I ate it for lunch three days running but I have to warn you that Mr O was not a fan. He doesn’t like sweet and savory together and especially not fruit and meat so if you have similar dislikes, this one isn’t for you. Read more…

Things I have been cooking lately #94: Instant frozen yoghurt

Fancy a really quick, healthy dessert? I adapted this recipe into two versions from a Jamie Oliver recipe but I’m sure there are loads of other possible flavour combinations you could dream up! You’ll find a selection of frozen fruit in the frozen dessert section of most supermarkets but you can easily freeze and use fresh fruit, especially if you’re worried about not eating it before it spoils.

Instant frozen yoghurt

For berry yoghurt
400g frozen mixed berries (raspberries, blueberries, strawberries)
500ml natural yoghurt
4 tablespoons of honey
The leaves from a sprig of mint

For mango and coconut yoghurt
400g frozen mango
500ml coconut yoghurt
2 tablespoons of honey
The leaves from a sprig of mint
Zest and juice of half a lime

Put the yoghurt, honey, mint and lime juice and zest (if using) into your food processor with the bowl blade in. Process until smooth.

Add the frozen fruit and process again until well combined.

Serves 4 – 6

Just a note that although the yoghurt can be kept in the freezer the texture is best when eaten immediately.
