Fresh Mozzarella & Prosciutto Salad

Happy Thursday all! Today’s recipe is Fresh Mozzarella & Prosciutto Salad – fresh, tasty and absolutely lovely, this salad screams summer!

Perfect for the hot summer nights/days, the Fresh Mozzarella & Prosciutto Salad is one of my favs now! πŸ™‚

Fresh Mozzarella & Prosciutto Salad

The recipe I got inspiration from actually uses Burrata cheese but fresh Mozzarella is quite similar so works perfect. I couldn’t really find Burrata around me, I’m sure it’s available though. And as far as I know, Burrata is actually Mozzarella but with a creamy centre. Or I might be wrong. πŸ™‚

So a few months ago I had this beautiful salad with Burrata cheese, fresh pesto and some other goodies and since then I’ve been recreating it at home. And we all love it, well I mean my husband and me. πŸ™‚

How could I’ve missed adding prosciutto to my salads before? Makes such a difference. I know, it also adds calories, but it’s totally worth it. To make this absolute beauty I used rocket, prosciutto, fresh mozzarella and homemade pesto. I also finished the salad with a splash of one of my favorite hot sauces (Cholula). The acidity in the sauce was just what this salad needed. And no, it wasn’t spicy, I only added a few drops which were mixed with the pesto. πŸ™‚

Also, when serving I suggest to throw some pine nuts – add crunchiness and nuttiness in a lovely way.

Although this looks all green and light, believe me, it’s quite filling. The last time I made this salad for dinner, more as a starter, but it really filled us up so we didn’t really have a main.

Kale & Butternut Squash Quesadillas

Happy Thursday guys! Today’s recipe is Kale & Butternut Squash Quesadillas – grilled flour tortillas stuffed with sweet squash, kale, chickpeas and melted cheese. This was too delicious not to try so put your apron on and let’s get cooking! I promise, it only takes a few minutes, it’s super simple and even more tastier. πŸ™‚

Kale & Butternut Squash Quesadillas

I genuinely love Mexican or Mexican – inspired food and I enjoy experimenting a lot. I’ve tried different versions of burritos and quesadillas (see the links below πŸ™‚ ) but never tried this one in particular. The idea came when I had to get rid of some roasted butternut squash I had in the fridge so I came up with quesadillas. I added some kale, roasted chickpeas, which again were leftovers from another recipe, and lots of cheese. No need to mention I poured half a bottle of hot sauce on my quesadillas. πŸ™‚ But hey, this was Mex – inspired, it should be hot. πŸ™‚

Kale & Butternut Squash Quesadillas

On a second thought, I think some sliced jalapenos would make these quesadillas even more appetizing. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any but next time definitely throwing some in there. πŸ™‚

The quesadillas are amazing for starter but these are so rich they can easily pass as a main. It really depends on how hungry you are. Serve them with some freshly made guacamole, sour cream and of course, hot sauce (for those of you who can handle the heat:-) ). And don’t forget to massage the kale with a bit of olive oil before adding it to the quesadillas. πŸ™‚

Here’s what you need to make these Kale & Butternut Squash Quesadillas

Kale & Butternut Squash Quesadillas

Kale & Butternut Squash Quesadillas

Ingredients

  • 300g butternut squash, roasted & cut in pieces
  • 100g chickpeas, roasted
  • a handful of kale
  • 100g mild Cheddar, grated
  • 100g Mozzarella, grated
  • 4-5 flour tortillas

Instructions

  1. Heat a griddle pan and place the tortilla. On half of the tortilla arrange some of the squash, chickpeas & kale and sprinkle some cheese on top. Make sure it's not too much so you can close the wrap.
  2. Gently close the wrap and press down. Cook for about 5 minutes, turn on the other side for a few minutes and remove from the pan.
  3. Repeat with the rest of the tortillas.
  4. Serve with some fresh guacamole, sour cream and/or hot sauce.

Leftover Lentil Wraps

Happy Tuesday guys! Recipe of the day is Leftover Lentil Wraps – simple and healthy wraps with peas, corn, tuna and red onion, there’s no way not to love these delicious and simple wraps!

Leftover Lentil Wraps

Apart from the lentils, there’s some peas, corn and tuna. Also, I’ve added some smoky harissa on mine but left the kids’ ones. And as the title says these wraps are actually made from leftovers, lentil soup leftovers in particular. What a great way to use up this soup! πŸ™‚ To be honest, I haven’t tried wraps with lentils so far but they’re simply delicious. Kids really enjoyed them too, well more in a bowl, than in a wrap but that has to do with their age and ability to actually eat a wrap. πŸ™‚

Leftover Lentil Wraps

When I say I used up a lentil soup I mean I drained carefully the lentils and other veggies that were in the soup. It’s really important to drain them well, otherwise the wraps will get soggy and not so yummy. πŸ™‚ I usually add some carrots and celery to the lentil soup so that was a bonus.

Leftover Lentil Soup

The whole mixture is quite tasty and can easily go for a healthy tuna salad as well. For that purpose, I added some chopped red onion. Tuna and red onion taste amazing, don’t you think? :-)The mixture is perfect to store it in the fridge for a few days. No matter how you decide to have it – lentil wrap or just a bowl, it is super tasty and nutritious and not to mention how simple to make. πŸ™‚ So next time when you make a lentil soup, save some and try these beauties. πŸ™‚

Here’s how to make the Leftover Lentil Wraps

Leftover Lentil Wraps

Ingredients

  • 200g brown lentils, cooked (I used up my lentil soup leftovers)

Harissa Roasted Chickpeas with Grilled Veggies

Happy Wednesday guys! Recipe of the day is Harissa Roasted Chickpeas with Grilled Veggies – a simple but so delicious bowl with lots of flavour and love! πŸ™‚

Harissa Roasted Chickpeas with Grilled Veggies

This time of the year I feel so excited about vegetables! I just love preparing veggie bowls with lots of different vegetables in them and some other goodies, of course. What I’m trying to say is that Summer, for me, equals lots of salads and veggie bowls. πŸ™‚

This one particular was one of these ‘clean my fridge meals’. I used someΒ leftovers I had and vegetables that were about to go off. It turned out quite yummy. Apart from the chickpeas, I added some grilled eggplant, grilled peppers, feta cheese, some wholemeal pita bread and a generous serving of my homemade sun-dried tomato pesto. The pesto is super simple to make – just blitz together sun-dried tomatoes, pine nuts, basil, olive oil and Parmesan, if you’d like (I didn’t use any Parmesan this time). Season with salt and lemon juice and enjoy! Yum! It was quite a lot, to be honest, but I saved some for the next day. πŸ™‚

Also, you can easily make some wraps using the ingredients from the bowl, apart from the pita bread of course. Thy will make a healthy and delicious lunch. πŸ™‚

Harissa Roasted Chickpeas with Grilled Veggies

This recipe is perfect for using up your leftover veggies from your bbq. Just add some feta cheese, chickpeas and this yummy pesto and you’ve got yourself a lovely lunch. πŸ™‚

The chickpeas are cooked with a few spoons of harissa paste. They were absolutely delicious but I was a bit disappointed. I expected them to be quite hot but they turned out just a tiny bit spicy. Next time I should probably use the whole jar. πŸ™‚

Here’s how to make the Harissa Roasted Chickpeas with Grilled Veggies bowl

Harissa Roasted Chickpeas with Grilled Veggies

  2. To make the pesto - simply blitz the ingredients together.
  3. To arrange the bowl - add the chickpeas, sliced eggplant and peppers, pita chips, some crumbled feta cheese and a spoon of the sun-dried tomato pesto.

Grilled Zucchini Strawberry Salad

Happy Friday! Today’s recipe is Grilled Zucchini Strawberry Salad – fresh, fruity and simply amazing!

Grilled Zucchini Strawberry Salad

The series with grilled veggie salads continue! πŸ™‚ Just joking! The thing is I spotted some ripe British strawberries while doing my weekly shopping and had to get a few packs. The strawberries I get are usually imported so you can understand my excitement when I saw these strawberries (they usually come around this time of the year). πŸ™‚

OK, let’s focus on the salad then. I find the sweet and sour combination very tasty! Apart from the strawberries and grilled zucchini, there’s also feta cheese, apricots, a few chopped up pecans and some freshly chopped basil. This is what I call a beautiful Summer salad. It’s so light and tasty, just perfect to have on a hot summer day, probably with a nice glass of white. πŸ™‚ You can have it as a quick snack too. It’s needless to say it’s healthy and low in calories. The downside is you can’t really store it for more than a day. I recommend consuming it straight after preparations. The fruit will get soggy and even might go off so have it fresh and make sure to finish it all. πŸ™‚ That was not a problem for me. πŸ™‚

Grilled Zucchini Strawberry Salad

And because it’s the grillingΒ season I think this salad will be a great addition to any BBQ. No matter what you’re making – fish or meat, this beauty will compliment both. Use as a side or as an appetizer before serving the mains, you won’t go wrong.

I kept the dressing simple as I wanted the salad to be this way – fresh and simple. So I used some olive oil, lemon juice and salt.

The pecans add a crunchy bite to it that I love in salads. Pecans seem to work quite well with fruit. You can use walnuts, too. Just add a few on top for some extra crunchiness. πŸ™‚

Grilled Asparagus Bulgur Salad

Happy Wednesday guys! Today’s recipe is Grilled Asparagus Bulgur Salad – loaded with tuna, sun-dried tomatoes, red onions and quail eggs, amazingly delicious and nutritious! πŸ™‚

Grilled Asparagus Bulgur Salad

Can you believe the weather today? I’m sitting here typing with the lights on in the middle of the day, this is how dark it is. The rain’s been on and off all day. But this salad kind of makes me think of sunny days (hopefully coming soon).

It is so light and freshly tasting but at the same time quite filling. Perfect for a healthy and tasty lunch or dinner. It is packed with goodies – sun-dried tomatoes, red onions, quail eggs and tuna. And of course, there’s bulgur and grilled asparagus. I use bulgur quite often in my recipes but haven’t tried adding asparagus to salads yet. I usually just grill them as snack on them as they are.

But this Grilled Asparagus Bulgur Salad is a whole different story. πŸ™‚ It is very simple to make so you can make a bigger batch and store in the fridge for a few days to cover your lunch or dinner on busy days.

Grilled Asparagus Bulgur Salad

The dressing is simple too – olive oil, lemon juice and salt. All you have to do is to mix it all up and you’ve got this beautiful and healthy salad.

I try to use seasonal veggies and fruit as much as I can, though, I believe asparagus season starts in June. Anyway, it’s almost June (can you believe it). πŸ™‚ Oops, just checked online and it is indeed in season. Apparently, asparagus season starts from the end of April till June.

My point was, seasonal produce is much tastier and cheaper too, in most cases. Unfortunately, it seems there’s not great variety here, and lots of the fruit and veg are imported. But as I said, I try to choose local and seasonal produce whenever I can and it does make a difference. πŸ™‚

Stuffed Mushrooms with Bacon, Mozzarella & Cherry Tomatoes

Happy Friday! Today’s recipe – Stuffed Mushrooms with Bacon, Mozzarella & Cherry Tomatoes – scrumptious mushrooms loaded with melted cheese, bacon pieces and juicy cherry tomatoes – this is my kind of starter!

Stuffed Mushrooms with Bacon, Mozzarella & Cherry Tomatoes

I can’t believe May is already halfway gone which brings June in. Wait, isn’t it supposed to be warm and sunny then? πŸ™‚ It seems the weather here is a total mystery. For example, today, it’s been sunny, rainy and windy, like three different seasons in a day. It changes so quickly it’s insane. No, I’m not used to it and I’ll probably keep on complaining until some sun is shining. That’s enough for this post though so let’s get back to the recipes.

As my previous recipe, this one is perfect for a tasty brunch too. I actually did these last Sunday brunch and thew were divine. Make sure to serve them hot though, otherwise they get soggy and not so appetizing. I drenched mine in hot sauce, but how could I not (you know I’m addictive). Also, I think these lovely mushrooms will go just fine with a spicy Bloody Mary, definitely trying this next time. πŸ™‚

You can serve them as a starter, canapes or even as a main, probably with some salad on a side. They would make a delicious weeknight dinner too, quick and easy to make.

I used my homemade breadcrumbs, which I think I mentioned before how I prepare – simply blitz my leftover bread with some spices I fancy. This is a really simple way to use a stale bread and it works even better than the shop-bought breadcrumbs.

Breakfast Sweet Potato

So if it’s not too late when you’re reading this post turn the oven on and start making this! It’s super simple but tastes amazing and it’s quite filling too. All you need is bacon and cheese, then some sweet corn and eggs. I used quail eggs. Not only I love how they taste but they look so pretty when added on food. They just make the food look a lot prettier, don’t you think? πŸ™‚ Not only that but they’re times healthier than the chicken ones. If you see these in the shop, don’t hesitate and grab a pack. You can add them on almost everything!

I served these beauties with sour cream on a side but I also had some hot sauce on mine (couldn’t resist). I used a giant sweet potato, cut in halve but if you’d like you can use a few small ones and cut them in half.

I’m telling there’s nothing better than having yummy food on a lazy Sunday and watching a food show. It doesn’t happen very often, though but when it does it’s a real pleasure. I simply love food. πŸ™‚

To make thing even easier, why bake the potatoes in advance, say Saturday, store them in the fridge, and all you have to do on Sunday is top them up and bake for a few minutes.

This is only one of the combinations I like to use for topping og my sweet potatoes. There are so many other options that are delicious too. So be inventive and let’s get cooking. πŸ™‚

Oven Baked Halloumi Chips with Herbs

Happy Wednesday all! Today’s recipe – Oven Baked Halloumi Chips with Herbs – simple but delicious recipe that will make you love halloumi cheese even more! πŸ™‚

Oven Baked Halloumi Chips with Herbs

I can’t believe I haven’t tried this before. Honestly, I do get a lot of halloumi cheese in my shopping but I usually grill it and toss it in salads. These halloumi chips are a different story. Of course, they taste like halloumi but at the same time they are different. They’ve got crispy coating which consists of stale rye bread, seasoning and herbs. Yes, stale bread. For some reason, my family is not really keen on bread so almost every time I get a loaf, more than half of it is left. This is how I started making breadcrumbs – simply blitz the bread in a food processor voila, perfect breadcrumbs. I usually sore them in a container in the fridge, really handy. So my point was… I added some dry garlic, parsley and thyme and seasoned with salt and pepper. Be easy on the salt though, the halloumi is already quite salty.

Oven Baked Halloumi Chips with Herbs

And the best part is there is no frying which makes these chips healthier and easier to make. I guess they would taste a bit too greasy when fried anyway, so oven baked is much better.

I couldn’t escape of not making any mayo based dip again. Really, what’s with me and these dips. I’m telling you, I’ve been making lots of these and eating them too. Β I had the halloumi chips with spicy mayo and the combination was so yummy.

So yummy that I didn’t realize how a generous portion of the chips and dip was gone in a few minutes. Well, I was actually watching TV. It’s always a bad idea to have food while watching TV. You’ll be surprise how quickly the food is gone. πŸ™‚

Smoked Salmon Kale Salad

Happy Thursday all! The recipe of the day is Smoked Salmon Kale Salad – super rich, with lots of yummy ingredients this salad will full you up! It’s more like a main dish really! πŸ™‚

Smoked Salmon Kale Salad

This Smoked Salmon Kale SaladΒ is packed with so many ingredients – apples, carrots, sun-dried tomatoes, avocado and even walnuts! So lots of vitamins and nutrients to fuel your body.

You might think there’s way too much stuff on this salad (well, you might be right πŸ™‚ ) but it really tastes lovely. Salads like these are definitely a favourite of mine. You get to have various ingredients in one meal – fruit, veg, nuts and fish! πŸ™‚ And it’s quite healthy too. I didn’t expect kale and smoked salmon to go well but I was wrong. It turned out to be a really delicious combination. Don’t forget to massage the kale though – just add a dash of olive oil Β and massage o gently for a few minutes. πŸ™‚ Otherwise it could be quite tough and not very edible. πŸ™‚

Smoked Salmon Kale Salad

For the dressing I used tahini, lemon juice, olive oil and salt. I love the lemon tahini dressing but I’m aware it’s not everyone’s favourite so if you’d rather prefer, you can skip the tahini. It just gives more flavour and nuttiness to the salad but on the other side, skipping the tahini makes the salad tastes lighter.

Here’s what you need to make the Smoked Salmon Kale Salad

  • 1tbsp tahini
  • 1tsp lemon juice
  • salt to taste

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, gently massage the kale with a bit of olive oil for a few minutes.
  2. Start building up the salad - add the salmon, sliced avocado, apple and carrot.
  3. Arrange the sun-dried tomatoes and finally the walnuts.

If you’d rather make a bigger portion and keep it in the fridge for a few days make sure to live the salad dry. Don’t add the dressing as it’ll go soggy and not so appetizing. You can easily divide it inΒ a few small containers and keep the dressing in a small pot/container. Thus you’ll have a tasty packed lunch. Don’t recommend keeping it more than two days though. Fresh is best! πŸ™‚
