Fakeaway Doner Kebab

My hubbie LOVES a doner kebab. I’m more of a chicken kinda gal myself as I can’t stand all the grease that comes off the takeaway doner meat and the oddly crusty edges that rear their head from time to time. Now that we are both trying to reduce our takeaway intake I thought it was about time I tried to create my own fakeaway doner kebab recipe. The result surprised even my hubbie who said not only did it taste like the real thing, but he would happily eat it over the takeaway version of the dish! I’ve tested this recipe a few times now and each person who has tried it has agreed, it tastes like the real deal!

I get my lean lamb since in Sainsbury’s but if you are struggling to find 10% mince you could use 12% or 16% for 7sp per portion of Doner meat and 20% for 8sp per portion of Doner meat.

Hoisin Duck Stir Fry with Egg Fried Rice

Before you crack on making this one, I would urge you to read my little blurb below as there are a few different ways you can serve this dish. All are delicious, but some take a little more time than others.

I initially created this duck stir fry mixture when I was whipping up some spring rolls to go with my egg fried rice. They were delicious but I couldn’t help but think that this tasty mixture was being wasted in such small quantities inside the rolls and should instead be the star of the show on the plate so I set about adapting my initial recipe to make it the main part of the dish.

Goan Prawn Curry

I’ve always enjoyed a prawn curry but adding enough prawns to make it filling can end up a little pricey at times. That is unless you use the delightful option that is frozen king prawns! A large bag of these little beauty’s in the supermarket is so much cheaper than buying them fresh and so many people say they are actually better quality as they are frozen at sea as soon as they are caught. If you are using frozen, raw king prawns, make sure they are properly defrosted before adding to the dish.

Curried Beef Satay – 6sp

Satay sauce from the Chinese takeaway is one of my favourite treats. Meaty, nutty with a nice little kick, it goes with so many different treats, I always find it irresistible. Last week, after having a serious craving for some, I decided to try and create a healthy version of this sauce and make it into a whole meal. All the flavour and none of the guilt! The result was delicious, a lovely different flavour and a really easy dinner to rustle up.

Buffalo Chicken Burgers with Blue Cheese Sauce – 3sp

I love buffalo sauce and the combo of that tangy orange delight paired with creamy blue cheese is one of my all-time favourites. After craving a burger this week, I decided to knock up a new recipe which would combine these two delicious flavours and the result was delicious!

The recipe below makes 8 burgers and each burger patty works out at 1sp. The sauce makes enough for 8 burgers and is 2sp per serving (when split between 8). If you aren’t planning on serving all the burgers within the same meal, I would still make all of the sauce as it can be kept in the fridge for a couple of days and used on things like salads and wraps too.

Burger in a Bowl – 8sp

My hubbie and I love a good burger but there are times when I get to the end of the day and fancy something just as indulgent  – without the breadyness of a bun. Sometimes I might replace the bun with a trusty thin but my latest obsession are these lovely Burger in a Bowls. Carb free and still lovely and filling, a nice, varied salad makes this dish just as interesting as a regular burger. The burger sauce is a lovely addition as it really makes you feel as if you’ve just popped down to Burger King!
