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.
The Dublin restaurant celebrates the gorgeous local lobster, and this recipe is a winner!
Great for sharing between two for Valentine's Day or as an appetizer or dessert during a dinner party
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.
Shop-bought muffins are a bugbear of mine, full of sugar and very high calorie! They are really cake without the icing. Definitely not a good breakfast option or a lunchbox filler! These muffins get a fibre boost from apples, carrots and oats, all good sources of healthy carbohydrates too! The recipe uses natural sweeteners like apple, raisins and nutmeg and less sugar. Ideal for breakfast or as a lunchbox treat.
My dad is a pro at barbecuing, especially lamb. This may look like a large, daunting piece of meat, but it’s actually very simple to cook and a hassle-free way to feed a crowd. The marinade and salsa are based on classic Italian flavour combinations and always work.
Stored properly, it may last up to a week.
