This recipe is delicious and is really suitable for family and friends alike. I like to just leave all the components of the meal in the middle of the table and allow all of the guests to help themselves and build their own fajita. The stir fry part of this recipe is also suitable for pork, duck or beef.
This is one of my all time favourite salads. It has a really moreish taste with a lovely texture. This is one of my 'substantial salad' recipes: salads made with resilient ingredients that are filling, transport well and stay fresh. Lentils are economical, highly nutritious and easy to cook. This salad makes a great packed lunch, and will stay fresh in the fridge for three days. Delicious hot or cold, served with grilled fish or on its own.
This is a great recipe for a light lunch or supper-colourful, crunchy and figure friendly. The chickpea base has a wonderful flavour and texture, you wont miss the meat at all! Chickpeas are low calorie and fibre rich, keeping you fuller for longer and balancing blood sugar levels. The filling will stay fresh in the fridge for 3 days and makes a super packed lunch. Go easy on the sour cream and grated cheese for a thinner dinner.
Even the most sorry-looking kitchens should have a few eggs, veggies and a bit of leftover cheese knocking around. My fridge-leftovers frittata is a great little lunchtime dish; it's a filling base for lots of additions, depending on what's in your kitchen. Try adding leftover ham, chorizo, spinach, peas, herbs, all sorts really.
