Simple to prepare evening meals are my mainstay, even more so whilst I’m cooking for one. It’s good to have some variation though and this simple laksa noodle soup with tofu, red peppers and green cabbage is a filling and delicious addition to any repertoire. It has the added advantage of being vegan, so it makes a perfect dairy free meal.
These cabbage & cheddar muffins with garlic scapes are incredibly easy to make and are packed full of vegetables and protein. They’re also very tasty and being bite size are ideal for packed lunches, picnics or parties. They freeze well too.
If you like a variety of different textures, flavours and colours in your meals, then this halloumi rice bowl with ginger carrots and caraway cabbage could be for you. It’s comforting, delicious and nutritious. It’s also surprisingly quick to make. You can have your meal on the table within half an hour.
In cold weather, there is nothing more warming and comforting than a big bowl of steaming soup. Or do I mean stew? I’m not entirely sure whether this Mexican bean soup is actually a soup or stew, but with a generous amount of vegetables, beans and spicy Mexican flavours, it certainly makes for a satisfying meal. It’s especially good when served with some hearty wholemeal soda bread spiked with a little smoked chilli honey.
