I made this stir fry after work, it was delicious and quick to prepare. Something super healthy, with lots of vegetables and it was easy to make with minimal effort. I actually planned to eat something else completely different for my dinner and it probably wouldn’t have been as healthy so this was a great choice, filled with one of my favourite vegetables broccoli as well as red cabbage, peas, carrot and sweetcorn. A perfect way to include some of your 5 a day in one meal and support your body with a range of vitamins and minerals.
Recipe: Quick stir fry noodles (serves 1)
1 portion egg noodles
Handful of broccoli, cut into smaller florets
50g red cabbage, finely sliced
1/2 carrot stick, grated
2 tbsp sweetcorn
1 tbsp peas
1/4 vegetable stock cube
1 tsp tomato puree
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/3 tsp brown sugar
Sprinkle of chilli flakes
1 tbsp oil, for frying
Prepare all of the vegetables and set them aside. Bring water to boil in a pot, cook the broccoli for 3 minutes and set aside.
Next, cook the egg noodles in the same pot according to the packet instructions, for the last 3 minutes add the peas and sweetcorn if frozen. Drain off the water and set aside.
Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the carrot, broccoli and red cabbage giving it a good mix. Boil water in a kettle, pour 100ml into a mug and stir in the vegetable stock cube and tomato puree.
Add the noodles, sweetcorn and peas to the pan. Pour in the veg stock mixture, soy sauce, sugar and chilli flakes.
Cover with a lid for 3-5 minutes depending on how soft you want your vegetables to be.
Hey Everyone, thanks for stopping by my blog today!
Today I’m sharing a delicious recipe for all the pasta lovers. When I think of pasta, it’s usually fusilli or spaghetti that comes to mind but pasta shells are a little more sophisticated and give off the impression that you know your way around the kitchen. These stuffed conchiglioni shells are a perfect way to make a basic pasta dish seem impressive without the fuss. I’ve used a mixture of vegetables for the filling but you could also add any meat of your choice. This pasta dish was something I enjoyed making and the end result is pretty filled pasta shells.
I love one dish meals because once the pasta shells have been filled, it goes into the oven and you can sit back and chill whilst you wait for it to cook. This pasta is very filling and full of so much flavour, definitely something to make when hosting friends or family.
Recipe: Stuffed conchiglioni shells (serves 2/3)
1 garlic clove, crushed
1/2 small onion, finely diced
Handful of kale, shredded
1/3 broccoli, diced
1 heaped tbsp of corn
1 heaped tbsp of peas
Pinch of chilli flakes
Pinch of salt
1 tbsp pesto
400g pasta sauce
140g pasta shells
50g cheese, grated
Preheat the oven to gas mark 6 and set aside a 24cm x 24cm oven dish.
Prepare all of the vegetables and put into a bowl, mix in the salt, chilli and pesto.
Pour the sauce and and water into the oven dish and mix well.
Then, one by one stuff the pasta shells as much as possible and gently place into the sauce. Repeat until the oven dish is full, sprinkle over the grated cheese and cover with foil.
Bake in the oven for 50 minutes minimum until the pasta is cooked and serve with a salad.
So it’s not long been the new year, 2021 is finally here and many people are starting new diets, eating vegetarian or generally trying to be healthier and this recipe is perfect for any of the above. This meal is easy to make and the white rice can be substituted with a healthier variety such as quinoa or brown rice. I have tried to cut the vegetables quite small in order to reduce the cooking time and maintain the nutritional value. For flavour, I’ve used a bit of garlic powder but you could add any of your favourite seasonings.
The broccoli provides the body with high sources of protein and fibre which are beneficial to the body. The red cabbage contains potassium which helps to keep the heart healthy. This is a fairly nutritious meal and would be even healthier if eaten with brown rice or quinoa.
Recipe: Vegetable Medley (serves 1)
60g – 90g uncooked rice
1 small carrot, grated
Handful of broccoli, cut small
Handful of red cabbage, finely sliced
1 tbsp oil, for frying
Pinch of salt, pepper, garlic powder and sugar
Firstly cook the rice on a gentle simmer until all of the water is absorbed and the rice grains are fluffy and cooked.
Heat the oil in a pot and in the meantime, wash and slice the vegetables.
Once the oil is hot add the vegetables and sprinkle over the salt, pepper, garlic and sugar. Leave to sauté for 3-4 minutes.
Check the rice and add the water to the vegetables, give it a final stir and cover with a lid.
Once both the vegetables and rice is cooked, serve and enjoy!
