As some of you already know, I like keeping my recipes simple. To make this gluten free vegetarian spaghetti I’m making a simple tomato sauce using canned tomatoes and tomato puree and flavouring it with garlic, basil, chilli flakes and lemon jucie. I’m adding peas for some extra colour and texture but feel free to use minced meat or prawns for some protein.

Butternut Squash Kale Quinoa

I’m always making quinoa, but I rarely make it plain. I always add things like beans, nuts and lot of vegetables. It’s so easy and quick to make so it’s perfect for when you’re in a hurry and need something quick. I like to make a huge batch and store it in the fridge to have for lunch throughout the week. It makes an amazing lunch on the go – better than your average sandwich and definitely much healthier, and more interesting (in my opinion!).

You know sometimes when you come across a recipe and straight away you think “This looks too difficult” and you move on before actually reading the recipe and knowing what goes into it, well for me, homemade gnocchi was one of those recipes! I’d seen a few people making homemade sweet potato gnocchi but I’ve always thought there is no way this is not going to be fiddly! Now I realise how completely wrong I was!

Vegan Burger Recipe

I love vegetable and bean burgers. They may not taste like meat but they can be just as satisfying without leaving you feeling heavy and sluggish from the high fat and oil content. To me, normal meat burgers are a treat – one that I would only probably have once or twice a year if even that. These vegan burgers however, I would happily eat everyday!

I only recently came to realise that salads can be hearty, filling and satisfying. Before starting my clean eating journey, I always viewed salads as something you have on the side of your main meal. When going out to restaurants, I wouldn’t even consider looking at the salad section of the menu. “How can a few leaves and some tomatoes fill you up? Salads are boring” I was so wrong!

I feel that Brussels sprouts are neglected all year round apart from Christmas. I can only find them locally around this time and it makes me sad, because I LOVE BRUSSELS SPROUTS! I realise not everyone shares my passion for the humble sprout and I guess I can understand why. I always used to boil or steam my Brussels sprouts which I must admit did get boring after a while. That’s before I discovered roasting them instead!

Healthy Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie

Nadia Bakes, gluten free, main meals, Vegetarian 4 Comments

Traditional Shepard’s pie can often be on the fatty, starchy side what with all the meat, thick layer of potato mash mixed with generous amounts of butter and cheese. This healthy vegetarian Shepherd’s pie is much lighter and full of vegetables and pulses packed with nutrients and mineral, and the best thing about it is that it tastes just as delicious and satisfying as the traditional!
