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.
I’m always trying to come up with new, quick and easy weekday and ‘on the go’ lunches using up the contents of my fridge. A few weeks ago, being once again in this dilemma, I threw together this recipe and was more than pleasantly surprised with the results. For only 7sp you get a lovely, filling dish packed with flavour and punch. 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!
Week two of my festive canapes are these little beauty’s that I came up with whilst racking my brain for a lighter, lower sausage roll option. These little bites are the perfect replacement. Meaty with a little sweetness and the goo of lovely cheese they really hit the spot for a bargain of 2sp.
Following on with my obsession with all things Korean, I created this recipe after a visit to our local food market where my hubbie indulged in a Korean Fried Chicken Burger. Keen to make my own healthier version, I ditched the deep frying and went for a much healthier griddle instead.
My hubbie and I love all things hot and so I’m always on the lookout for new spicy additions to our weekly menu. After visiting a food festival a few weeks ago and enjoying the most delicious Jamaican brown chicken wrap I decided to give this dish a go for myself by transforming it into a stew.
My chicken and chorizo jambalaya is one of my most popular recipes and I’m also a big fan so last week, when I was thinking of ways to jazz up my jambalaya, this idea hit me and I knew I had to give it a go. The result was delicious, filling and yet packed with flavour, you would never believe that the bowl food of food that I ate at the end was only 6sp. Even better, it now means I have two delicious recipes for jambalaya…winner!
The hubbie and I recently ate the most gorgeous Korean food at our local food market and, after being reminded of the wonderful flavour combinations from the area, I thought it was about time I added another recipe to my Korean collection. Continue reading
Ever since I posted a picture of this dinner on my Instagram Page (@skinnykitchensecrets) I have been getting requests for the recipe and whilst the picture might look like a lot of cooking is required, this one is less of a recipe and more of a quick and easy assembly of yummy ingredients.
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.
Back before my sister could cook she used to absolutely love the shop bought pots of mascarpone sauce. Whenever I see them in the shops now they remind me of her (not that she would buy one now being quite the cook herself!!). This week however, when I spotted a pot of Tesco’s light mascarpone in the shops, I thought I might try my own take on her old favourite.
