I know that a lot of people find them boring, but I honestly love big salad bowls. There are so many different things that you can add to them, the variations really are endless! Swap out the protein, change the healthy fat around, or just add a whole heap of different veggies to the bowl. Whatever you do or however you eat them, I find them absolutely delicious. Today, I thought that I’d share one of my favourite and most eaten salad bowls. Easy to put together, delicious and super healthy. Introducing my lentil salad bowl.
I absolutely love hummus, it’s one of my favourite go to snacks. It tastes delicious with some crunchy veggies, gluten free crackers, a bowl of delicious crisps or even piled high on the side of a salad. There’s absolutely nothing about it that I don’t love! I always make sure that I have a pot (or two) in the fridge, and it’s usually homemade.
I always thought that hummus would be difficult to make, I thought it’d need tonnes of ingredients or take a million different steps to create. But that couldn’t be further from the truth! The recipe is actually so simple and easy to make and only takes about 5 minutes to put together. Hummus really is a staple in my diet and I can’t imagine not being able to enjoy my favourite snack!
These were the result of a little experiment. I really love having some healthy snacks on hand and lately, I’ve been making big batches of bliss balls and snack bites that last all week. They’re great to grab and go when you’re in a rush, and are the perfect little energy boost to keep you going all day.
I’ve been making the same sort of flavours for a while now. My ‘tropical bliss balls’ are refreshing and sweet, and my ‘date truffle energy bites’ are just what I need for rushed mornings, or taste delicious on top of some yogurt. But I wanted to make something completely different. Something that wasn’t full of dates, or packed full of seeds. I wanted something easy to make, filling and of course, completely delicious!
Crispy new potatoes, fried in lemon and a bit of thyme. They may sound plain, but these are anything but. These are something that I started making a few years ago, and quickly became a firm favourite of mine. It all started with a hatred for new potatoes; I find them dry, tasteless and pretty much horrible. But, there were some left over, and not a lot for dinner, so I started a little cooking experiment. Lightly covering them in lemon juice (one of my favourite flavours), and a sprig or two of fresh thyme. I fried them until golden and crispy, and really had no idea how they would turn out. The result, these delicious lemon fried potatoes. Don’t you just love it when you try something new and completely random, and it turns out perfectly? They make you make that delicious ‘mmmm…’ sound, which means ‘damn, that’s good!’.
Sweet potatoes are one of my favourite vegetables. They’re sweet, wholesome and taste completely delicious. I have them roasted pretty much every week, (it’s super quick and easy, you can find the recipe here) and always make sure that I have some sweet potato mash in the fridge, ready to liven up a salad. But I’ve been looking to do something different with them. I love them; but when you have a dollop of mash, or a few roasted fries every day, it can get a bit boring. That’s when I got the idea to make these sweet potato cakes.
