Chicken Noodle Broth

The other night, my Husband was out with his friends and it had got to 6:30pm and I realised I hadn’t eaten all day. Terrible I know, but sometimes I literally forget to eat. I’ll snack on the crusts of my daughters sandwich or steal a few spoonfuls of her porridge to check the temperature and I’ll think I’ve eaten. So there is a hungry me and lack of time, as it’s nearly Evie’s bed time. What can I cook? I have some chicken and some vegetables, I don’t want pasta. I check the cupboards, find some noodles and think I’ll just make Chicken Noodle Broth. Turns out it was pretty tasty, so I made it again for lunch Saturday and decided to share it with you guys. Sometimes recipes come out of nowhere, and this super quick supper does not disappoint.

Hot & Sour Red Thai Prawn Noodles

This recipe has been shortlisted in the ‘Best of Pinterest UK’ food & drink awards in the ‘Best Go To Recipe’ category.

Thai food is high on my list of favourite foods, add seafood and I am sold. Totally and utterly sold. We have a great Chinese market here in Birmingham and when I paid a visit the other day, I picked up some egg noodles with the intention of making this dish. A coconut base, infused with red Thai flavourings and a squeeze of lime to give the perfect balance of hot and sour. Spooned on top of a heap of noodles, it would be great for lunch or dinner. Super quick and easy to make and completely delicious, well I think so.

Completely fresh ingredients, with prawns bought at the fish market and a sprinkle of coriander from my very own garden. What’s great is, you can make a huge pot and just pop it in the middle for the table and watch your guests spoon in the goodness. If you wanted to make it for a group of more than 3, just double up on the ingredients.

Roasted Sweet Potato Curry with Cauliflower Rice

I’ve really loved experimenting with vegetarian recipes. This rich, spicy tomato and coconut base with subtle spices and a kick of heat is lick the bowl delicious. Pair it with the sweetness of roasted sweet potato and the buttery cauliflower rice and well, I could be a vegetarian forever. I wanted to make a substantial dish that you could make and it was even better the next day. A great big pot of yummyness that you could share with friends or freeze and take to work. It may look like a lot of ingredients, but once you have the base of the curry mastered, it really doesn’t take much effort.

My Husband has testified that it is one of his favourite things I have ever cooked and my Mom took a sample straight home to my Step Dad. You could eat it like this, or you could add chicken if you wanted a meat option. I really hope you enjoy it as much as I loved creating it, because I’m pretty proud.

Roasted Tomato & Garlic Prosciutto Pasta

If you make this, I promise the smell that fills your house is worth it alone. Sweet bubbling tomatoes, garlic and chilli waft out of the pan like nectarine for tomato lovers like me. Now if you have a friend or spouse that doesn’t like tomatoes, like my husband…they’ll still eat it. In fact they’ll even have seconds, I mean he was pretty hungry but he really doesn’t like tomatoes. He did request for extra meat, in fact he requested salami but he’s not the cook so.

On the other hand, if you want to make this veggie go ahead. The sweet flavours of the roasted garlic and tomato make this flavourful enough. But I love adding salty prosciutto…to anything really. I’ve used wholewheat pasta because we cut out white pasta and bread a long time ago in our house. Can’t resist a potato though, potatoes and cheese are my downfall.
