Truffled Wild Mushroom Risotto with Pan Fried Thyme Chicken – 11sp 

I am often asked to come up with new vegetarian recipes, however being a lover of meat myself, I always seem to veer towards the carnivore in me. I came up with this base risotto recipe for you veggies out there however I had to add the chicken for the hubby and I to get our meat fix. The risotto on its own is 10sp per serving and the chicken is 1sp per serving so its up to you if you go for the veggie risotto on its own, or add the meat.

It’s the perfect dish to whip up if you’ve got back on the wagon post Christmas/New year and want healthy and flavour all in one!

Buffalo Chicken Taquitos – 12sp

A Taquito is something I had never tasted or even heard of before I went visited Mexico and since it has been a whole year since we jetted off, I thought it was time to come up with another recipe inspired by my time there.

A Taquito is simply a rolled up, stuffed tortilla. Usually fried, these lovely creations are rolled tighter and so are thinner than an enchilada, and the top is not covered in sauce in the same way an enchilada would be.

Malaysian Chicken Satay Stir Fry – 3sp

Stir fries are my hubbie and I’s go to quick and easy meal. Usually on the plate in under 15 minutes, stir fries are the perfect way to fill up with veggies whilst enjoying a flavour packed meal. I’m always looking for new ways to jazz up my stir fries so this week I decided to go a little Malaysian. The stir fry sauce here is tasty and so easy to prepare, as simple as popping everything in a bowl and giving a little mix. I’ve used powdered peanut butter instead of the normal stuff as 1 tbsp of the normal stuff is 3sp and the powdered stuff is only 1sp for 2 tbsp! It is a little pricey to buy (mine was £4) but it lasts a lot longer than the regular stuff and is such a great points saving. Best of all, to prepare you simply mix with water and you end up with the same textured peanut butter as you would from a normal jar! Most supermarkets sell it now next to the normal stuff.
