veggie meatballs with baked eggs.


A wholesome, low carb meal idea with lots of veggies, meat-free-meatballs and tasty baked eggs on top. It's great on it's own as a bake, or with your favourite bread for dipping. Simply make the meatballs, beans and sauce ahead and crack on some great quality free range eggs right before baking. I actually use frozen "Swedish style vegetarian meatballs" as they are such a cupboard staple to have in the freezer and bulk out bakes. In fact, a lot of this dish is make with the likes of chopped tomatoes and canned beans which are always so handy (and great on a budget too). Without further ado...


breakfast at gee's, oxford.

 

Just outside of Oxford city centre and past a few of the beautiful university parks, you'll find the decadent glass house that is Gee's. As well as serving up trendy cocktails and curating three course meals, the elegant glass conservatory, bar and terrace is said to do a rather good breakfast. Turns out the rumours are true.


baked dill salmon with beetroot risotto.


A tasty and wholesome dish for seafood lovers. Salmon, dill and beetroot go hand in hand, so I thought it was about time I made something with them again. When I have extra time at the weekend I love to slowly stir a risotto, simmering away. So I thought I'd bring these ingredients together in a vibrant risotto, for a recipe that is a great source of protein, iron, energy and also goes towards your five a day.


vegan bean chilli.


A chilli for the chilly months. This cosy and warming dish is perfect for getting those veggies in after the festive season. Whether you're in a post-cheese slump or are fighting the sniffles, this could be wholesome, veg-packed dish for you. It's vegan, dairy free and gluten free too - plus since it's so easy to whip up and batch cook it's perfect for lazy Winter teas and midweek meals.


turkey meatball bake (slimming world friendly).


A tasty (and super easy) Slimming World friendly meal featuring lean turkey meatballs. I don't follow SW myself, but after having friends and family follow it I've often used their website for healthy recipe inspiration. Turkey is even leaner than chicken so makes for a great meatball alternative. Though if you're veggie the Quorn ones are delicious too. Since this is a tomato based sauce featuring syn free pasta and vegetable speed foods, I can imagine this being rather low on the syn count. I couldn't resist a cheeky sprinkle of cheese, mind.
