🔸TOMATO CHICKPEAS WITH RICE & VEG ( #vegan#glutenfree#dairyfree#nutfree)🔸
I would serve from ~10 months.
Looking super cute on our @kiddobloom plates ( #gifted). Very easy to make and packed full of nutrients, the chickpea recipe has just enough flavour for my kids, if making for yourself you may want to up the seasoning and add chilli flakes 😋.
This batch of chickpeas makes about 8 portions so I put half in the fridge or freezer for another meal. Serve with rice or noodles and whatever veggies need eating up. I sprinkled flat leaf parsley and sesame seeds on top to add a bit of texture (could also drizzle cashew cream all over it, yum).
🔸Dollop coconut oil
🔸1/2 onion finely chopped
🔸1/4 tsp chopped garlic
🔸1 tsp grated fresh ginger
🔸1 tsp ground cumin
🔸1 tsp ground coriander
🔸1 tsp paprika
🔸2 cans chickpeas drained
🔸1 cup tomato passata
🔸3/4 cup coconut milk
1. Melt oil in large pan then soften the onions for 5 minutes or so.
2. Add the garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander and paprika, stir to coat and leave to cook for a couple of minutes.
3. Add the chickpeas, passata and coconut milk, stir to combine and bring to the boil.
4. Then simmer for ~20 minutes. Can serve immediately or keep in the fridge for 3 days / freezer for a month or so and reheat before serving.
Not so long ago, in a galaxy pretty much like this one, I was told by a Dr, following some blood work that my cholesterol was high. Not the best of news, that. She and I sat down and had a conversation on how to help get it lower. She advised me to reduce my red meat, stop eating pastry and increase my oat consumption.
Ah, said I.
I only eat red meat once a week, if that, I don't do pastry very often, and oats are pretty popular.
Oh. Said she. That's a problem
And so it goes.
Since then I've cut out meat, and dairy, completely. I have upped my cardio, and am attempting to make an already healthy lifestyle better. Unfortunately genes may be against me. Fortunately eating more oats is advice I can always get behind.
Autumn has arrived. With a windy bang. Subsequently oats are surely a must? And I've found many ways to make them appealing to four Badgers. One is to bake them. Sure, you need a bit of extra time - but once in the oven you don't do anything. No stirring, no mixing. Nowt.
If you soak your oats overnight, they'll cook even quicker.
Here be baked pear, hazelnut and dark chocolate oats. With chia and millet to boot. Because hey, why not? .
Tiella - an Italian gratin of tomato, potatoes, mussels and rice. Topped with a crunchy Parmesan and herb crust 👌🏻 Recipe written and styled for @gitlchefs Puglia campaign, find the recipe on the Great Italian Chefs website!
🔹TUNA🔹Another quick and simple midweek meal. Flaky tuna fillet with a paprika crust on chargrilled sweetcorn and pepper smash ( gnarly tangy flavours ) topped with a tomato and red onion salsa, garnished with sliced chilli and mangetout (the heat from the chilli and crunch from the mangetout finishes this dish perfectly). Again using mainly store cupboard ingredients. No frills, just easy home cooked midweek meals. #food#foodie#midweekmeals#freshcooking#freshfood#fish#tuna#simplemeals#katiemanncooks

🌱Everything in the fridge soup 🌱
My poor baby boy has croup 😢 I know it’s a fairly common childhood ailment but waking up to what sounds like your little one struggling to breathe is just horrendous, especially when it’s the first time experiencing anything like it. He’s been ok in himself otherwise and I thought I’d make him a hearty soup at lunchtime to fill him with nutrients and fluids... unfortunately he wouldn’t try any of it 🙈
Soups are great for using up any leftovers. I chucked in tomatoes, sweet potatoes, leaks, garlic, red lentils and low salt veggie stock. Eat chunky or blend depending on your preference.
Thursday: Chicken skewers 🍢🍗with chorizo packed couscous..😋
Other than the time marinating your chicken this is actually SUPER SPEEDY!
• Couscous takes 2 minutes to cook (follow packet instructions and add a stock cube for flavour) as does frying off some chopped chorizo, boiling some beans & peas, and chopping some spring onion! That’s all you need for the couscous..throw it all in a bowl, season, mix and you’re done! ~
🍗 For the chicken you just need chicken mini fillets in a bowl and add:
• 2 crushed garlic cloves
• 1 tbsp smoked paprika
• 1 1/2 tbsp honey
• 1 tbsp olive oil
• salt and pepper ~
Mix it all up and leave to marinade for 20 mins or longer if you can!...then simply thread onto skewers and pop under the grill, turning occasionally until cooked through!
Honestly it’s that simple...nothing complicated at all tonight! There are of course more pics 📷 and step 👟by steps👟 on my stories!
Alfie LOVED the couscous and had seconds 🙌🏻 Maisie picked out the green beans from the couscous 😏 but ate the rest and loved the skewers and had seconds of those! 👍🏼 ~
Pretty quiet day today other than my random run in with a workman who found Maisie’s missing shoe strap?! 🤷🏻♀️ so weird! See stories for more but I still don’t get why he had it in his pocket! What was he going to do with it? And weirder still that I happened to be there at the same time as him?!...but either way Maisie can now go to school in her school shoes and not trainers and I no longer have to fork out for a brand new pair of shoes! Phew!!!
How have your days been?? Ready for the weekend!!? Xx
.... and breath! A busy day with lots of errands to run and various school runs! .
Then there was that amazing discovery that you can sterilise toothbrushes, poach a whole salmon and wash your crocs in the dishwasher ... apparently also a great way of cleaning your sink bowl, drawer from washing machine, the dust pan and various toys ... think I'd worry about poisoning someone with the fish and turning things brittle 🤦🏼♀️🤣 .
On the parenting front we are pushing for mum's using tablets/kindles/iPads etc for a stress free food shop or more importantly to actually sit and have coffee or lunch occasionally with friends without the guilt trip and also that using paper plates occasionally to serve that one pot dinner is not laziness but an impromptu midweek party thrown by an exhausted mother. 😘 .
What are your top parenting hacks that help you maintain your sanity? I'd love to hear and share. Xx
More food, I think it’s the weather but it’s all I am thinking about at the moment💗 But hey there are worse things to be thinking of aren’t there? And on this cold winters day what better than this BBQ Pulled Chicken recipe from the @hellofreshuk recipe archives. Tasty comfort food that feels like a real treat when you are all snuggled up inside and the rain is lashing against the windows. If you fancy a go and trust me you won’t regret it, it’s easy and tastes AMAZING the recipe is live on my lil ol blog 💗💕 #hellofreshsnaps#ad
Asian Tuna, Quinoa, Kale and Squash Salad. This recipe was inspired by a dish I ordered from the new Wagamamas menu. My kids love Wagas so I’m delighted they have launched some new dishes as I always gravitated towards their pork belly ramen! This tuna is packed with goodness. It’s high in protein, contains your five a day and is so so tasty.
INGREDIENTS for 4
4 tuna steaks (I source mine from Sankey’s in Tonbridge)
350g cubed squash (I cheated and bought it ready diced as I wanted to save on time!)
100g edamame beans
100g kale, tough stalks removed
1 red chilli finely chopped or sliced
For the dressing/marinade
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
Juice of 2 limes
2 tbsp honey
5cm piece of ginger grated or finely chopped
2 garlic cloves crushed
1 tbsp olive oil
Shake your dressing ingredients together in a jam jar. Pour half over your tuna steaks and leave to marinade for 10 minutes or up to a few hours if you’re planning ahead.
Lay the kale and squash on a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Put in an oven at 180 degrees for 20 minutes.
Cook your quinoa according to packet instructions.
Place your edamame beans in a pot of boiling water and leave to stand for a couple of minutes before draining.
Get a griddle or frying pan hot and sear your tuna steaks for a minute on each side if they’re 1/2 inch thick and you want them pink in the middle.
Combine the quinoa, squash, kale and edamame means on a platter or individual plates and top with the tuna. Sprinkle with the chilli and drizzle over the remaining dressing.

For about a year now I’ve become obsessed with the Food Network magazine. Yes, it’s American and you can’t buy if here but you can download the app and subscribe to it on your iPad! I just love how Americans go big on every season and I especially loved this pimiento mac n cheese with tuna!! To be honest, it was more of a pasta bake than mac n cheese but still, it was good!! I topped it with cheese and a sprinkling of crushed @ritzcrackers 😋🙌🏼 before browning under the grill. Totally recommend checking them out. There’s some amazing Halloween bakes in their October issue! #foodnetwork#macncheese@foodnetworkuk

One Tray Roast Salmon. You know how I love a one tray. This one is ready in 30 minutes and is put together in less than 5. I’ve lined my roasting tin here with baking parchment so there is literally no washing up. Using a large single fillet of salmon such as this one from Sankey’s Fishmongers in Tonbridge, you have a meal for 4 simply by adding potatoes and asparagus. I’ve stirred through samphire too for the last 5 minutes of cooking time. The saltiness of the capers together with the lemons which caramelise and become really sweet work brilliantly together.
800g piece of salmon fillet (try and source it from a fishmonger, you can ask not to have a tail end)
500g jersey royals halved
3 lemons sliced
300g asparagus spears
2 tbsp capers
Roast your jersey royals and sliced lemons for 20 minutes with some olive oil.
Add the salmon to the tray, season and top with dill. Drizzle with olive oil and roast for 6 minutes.
Add the asparagus and roast for 6 minutes more.
Stir in the samphire and capers and allow to wilt for a few minutes.
Creamy carbonara for dinner tonight, this was soooo nice and really easy to make too! 😋❤️ @bosh.tv

Prepared and waiting to be baked in the oven in less than 30mins, including the washing up. 😊 #winning .
Like most of you, we are conscious of how precious our free time is. We all have busy lives, be it work, School, kids, after school activities or finishing repainting the hallway. There’s always something to be done.
I thought I’d share with you some of our favourite family meal ideas to feed your hectic households.
Our family now consists of 4 full time working adults and one school age child, we all come home at different times in the evening due to work and sport commitments, so it’s often difficult to prepare a meal we can all enjoy that hasn’t been kept warm, or needs to be microwaved!
So Rather than do one big shepherds pie, I prefer to do individual dishes.
It means that when the family come home (one by one) they can simply finish off the pie in the oven for 30 mins, giving them time to have a shower (usually) or catch the end of the football on tv. .
Made using 95% lean mince, and loads of veggies, a swede and potato top. You Can add cheese on top before baking if you wish!
