Chocolate Quinoa Granola  

After getting a gorgeous puffed quinoa granola (from HomeSpun Foods – I’d highly recommend it) I kept my eyes open for any puffed quinoa, and lo and behold I found some (organic to boot) in Lidl recently. So I went googling and decided to come up with my own recipe. All my ingredients are from either Aldi or Lidl (except the Vanilla essence).

Mixed Greens Soup

Posted by on August 17, 2017 at 3:10 PM Comments comments (330)

As we are coming into the autumn I'm thinking more of soups for lunch than salads. My friend and colleague very kindly gave me some kale and celery from her garden and suddenly inspiration struck and I came up wiht this soup recipe. I really liked it but the celery is quite strong (it was mainly the leaves) so you may wish to adjust this.

Gwen's Chicken Curry

Posted by on September 20, 2015 at 9:05 AM Comments comments (417)

I love chicken curry, but this is definitely the best I've ever made, so I'm delighted to share it with you! I cooked a whole chicken one night, then used the rest for this curry, and made homemade stock of the carcass in my slow cooker - ready to use in soups. Many of the ingredients in this curry are really easy to source, so no trip necessary to an asian market! There are some good anti-inflammatory foods in this dish, such as ginger and turmeric.
