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! ๐Ÿ™‚ 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). ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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. ๐Ÿ™‚ That was not a problem for me. ๐Ÿ™‚

Grilled Zucchini Strawberry Salad

And because it’s the grillingย 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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.

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). ๐Ÿ™‚ 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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? ๐Ÿ™‚ 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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? ๐Ÿ™‚ 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!

Breakfast Sweet Potato

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ย 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

Smoked Salmon Kale Salad

This Smoked Salmon Kale Saladย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ ) 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! ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ย and massage o gently for a few minutes. ๐Ÿ™‚ Otherwise it could be quite tough and not very edible. ๐Ÿ™‚

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

Smoked Salmon Kale Salad

Ingredients

  • 150g smoked salmon, shredded
  • 1/2 ripe avocado, sliced
  • 1/2 apple, roughly chopped
  • 4-5 sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 50g walnuts
  • 100g kale
  • For the dressing:
  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • 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.
  4. Whisk the dressing ingredients together and dress the salad.
  5. Serve with some oat cakes or crackers.

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 inย 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

Cheese & Peas Potato Balls with Parmesan Crust

Happy Friday guys! Today’s recipe of the day is Cheese & Peas Potato Balls with Parmesan Crust – an absolute kids’ favourite (and not only) these giant Potato Balls are covered with Parmesan and their centre is stuffed with melted cheese and peas! A winner recipe! ๐Ÿ™‚

Cheese & Peas Potato Balls with Parmesan Crust

I remember there was a restaurant I used to go (years ago) and they served similar potato balls which I absolutely loved. That was the reason I used to go there, actually. They had a few different ones but the cheesy ones were the best. This is where my inspiration came from. ๐Ÿ™‚ And because my kids love potatoes I had to come up with a new recipe, otherwise they can keep eating chips (not that they mind that at all). ๐Ÿ™‚

But these potato balls are much healthier, they are oven baked, and they’ve got ‘green stuff’ (peas). My kidsย dislike almost everything green apart from peas so that was the only option I had. ๐Ÿ™‚

Cheese & Peas Potato Balls with Parmesan Crust

These balls are really easy to make, boil some potatoes, make balls with cheese and peas centre and generously cover with Parmesan. Bake in the oven and then enjoy! They’re delicious with sour cream or even some mayo on a side.

I’ve been craving mayo a lot recently, seriously I tend to dip a lot of my food into it. I know it’s not the healthiest options of all but I take it as a treat. ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh, and sour cream, potatoes with sour cream is an absolute favourite! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s how to make the Cheese & Peas Potato Balls with Parmesan Crust

MM: Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus with Homemade Pita Chips

Happy Meatless Monday guys! Today’s recipe is Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus with Homemade Pita Chips – quick, easy, healthy and super delicious. Seriously, hummus made of sun-dried tomatoes? Yes, please! And pita chips? Why not ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus with Homemade Pita Chips

As I mentioned in my previous post, I love sun-dried tomatoes and I always make sure I’ve got a jar of them in my kitchen cupboard.

I’ve been meaning to make this hummus for a long time. I’ve wanted to try a sun-dried tomato dip, so why not make a hummus then, right?

This was really simple – chickpeas, tahini, garlic, lemon, salt and of course the sun-dried tomatoes.

Sun-dried Tomato Hummus with Homemade Pita Chips

To go with it I had some wholemeal pita chips. They were perfectly crunchy and just couldn’t imagine this lovely dip with anything else.

I really should start making the pita chips more often, they are tastier, and I bet healthier than the shop-bought ones. All you need is pita bread, cut into chips. A bit of olive oil and some spices you fancy then 5-10 minutes in the oven and you’ve got a great movie snack! ๐Ÿ™‚

In this case, it was chickenpox. At lest now it’s over though.

I’ve been using lots of sun-dried tomatoes lately and they go so well in my savoury recipes.

MM: Grilled Vegetables & Halloumi Bulgur Salad

Happy Mondayย guys! The recipe of the day is Grilled Vegetables & Halloumi Bulgur Salad – packed with crunchy veggies, grilled Halloumi and bulgur wheat, this salad is not only super delicious but very nutritious and healthy!

MM: Grilled Vegetables & Halloumi Bulgur Salad

And because it’s Meatless Monday, it’s a great meat free option to have today.

It seems I haven’t posted a MM recipe for a long time! So it was about time! The truth is I post whenever I can. I know I should probably make a schedule and stick to it but it’s really difficult and my plan almost never works.

For example, I had quite interesting recipes to test, photos to edit and of course blog posts to share. And of course, lots of other stuff to do. ๐Ÿ™‚ What happened? Well, chickenpox happened. ๐Ÿ™‚ Not me, but my daughter got it so we stayed at home for the whole week. And I had to make sure to entertain her and the little one too. I barely had time to cook. But this is over now, so we are back to our normal schedule – nursery, playgroups with the baby and ย the only time I’ve got is when they nap. So the longer the nap, the better the work I manage to do. Hopefully I’ll be able to upload a few yummy recipes this week! Fingers crossed! ๐Ÿ™‚

MM: Grilled Vegetables & Halloumi Bulgur Salad

Anyway, I think you get the point, back to this gorgeous Grilled Vegetables & Halloumi Bulgur Salad…

It’s one of the simplest recipes to make and yet it’s so delicious and very filling. Bulgur in general is quite filling so if you need a meal to keep you up for longer this is the one. There are tinned veggies you can use, if it’s more convenient for you, but the freshly grilled veggies would taste better.

I also added a generous serving of hummus which I had in the fridge for a couple of days. It worked really well with the veggies and even the bulgur. ๐Ÿ™‚ It also probably doubled the calories! ๐Ÿ™‚

And I used Chilli Halloumi which is so tasty! Now that I found it in my local shop I always get in my weekly shopping and add it to salads, bbqs, sandwiches. It is quite spicy, so if you’re not hot food lover go with the normal Halloumi.

MM: Grilled Vegetables & Halloumi Bulgur Salad
