Korean Mackerel and Potato Salad – 5sp

Korean gochujang chilli paste is one of my favourite store cupboard essentials. I use it in lots of my recipes and, as it’s always in my cupboard/fridge, I love to come up with new ways to use it in my everyday meals. Last week, after fancying something summery for tea, I thought I would give it a whirl as part of a potato salad dressing and the result was delicious. Bursting with flavour, colour and goodness, the best thing about this recipe is that the dish can be on the table in the time it takes to boil the potatoes.

Pork and Prawn Gyoza – 6sp

Gyoza are one of my favourite ways to start a Chinese or Asian meal. These lovely little dumplings are always packed with flavour and never feel too naughty. Having regularly craved them at home, this week I decided to give them a whirl myself.

You can buy pre made gyoza skins in Chinese or Asian supermarkets which would make the whole process below a bit less fiddly/time consuming (I will be doing this next time!). Continue reading

Gorgeous Guacamole – 3sp

Who doesn’t love guacamole. It basically a combination of all my favourite foods/flavours, avocado, lime, chilli and mexico. You can whip up this guacamole so quickly and whack it as an accompaniment to most dishes to up the flavour.

I keep everything nice and chunky so its got a good bite but if you prefer it smooth mash the avocado well and chop everything a bit smaller.

Butternut Squash Falafel – only 1sp

Falafel is something that me and a few of my friends at work absolutely love but usually they are rather high in points so you end up with a measly lonely falafel and absolutely no satisfaction. Because of this I decided today to try adapt a recipe (original here) into a low point falafel recipe that would taste just as good and the result was amazing! This falafel can be served in a wrap with salad and extras (serving suggestions below and recipe here) or as part of a normal salad with lots of vegetables and leaves. It would also be great with my harissa roasted vegetable salad!
