Mini Kale Pizzas

Happy Thursday guys! Today’s recipe is Mini Kale Pizzas – loaded with veggies & Mozzarella cheese, these green pizzas are perfect for a healthy snack on the go.

Mini Kale Pizzas

Who says pizza can’t be healthy? I recently read an amazing article discussing 26 Science-backed health benefits of kale that I didn’t even know existed. For instance, didย you know kale protects your DNA and helps keep your mood up? I really recommend reading the article and hopefully we start using this leafy green cabbage more often. I’m sure that even those of you that are not so keen on kale would give it a go after reading about its amazing benefits to your health. You can find the article hereย https://healthyline.com/health-benefits-of-kale/

Mini Kale Pizzas

Just look at this gooey centre! I promise the Mozzarella cheese is not that much as it looks. There are lots of other veggies like red peppers, olives, sun-dried tomatoes. Also, I used corn flour (no particular reason, it’s just I find it tastier than the white one). The recipe is super simple to make and at the same time tastes delicious! Not to mention the benefits of kale.

Mini Kale Pizzas

My kids actually enjoyed these Mini Kale Pizzas too. All I had to say was ‘pizza’. They didn’t mind the greenish colour which was great!

Mushroom & Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Happy weekend guys! Today’s recipe is Mushroom & Cauliflower Crust Pizza – topped up with salami, melted cheese, peppers & cherry tomato, this gluten-free pizza is bursting with flavours!

This pizza is like no other! The crust is not as dry as the original pizza crust (no flour, remember). This mushroom & cauliflower crust is super moist and soft and almost falling apart so I recommend using a fork. Does that make it a tart? I’m not sure to be honest. I thought it’s more like a pizza. ๐Ÿ™‚ Whatever you choose to call it, this meal is delicious. It’s gluten-free too. I think I already mention that. :-)Bear in mind though that many of the salami & sausages contain gluten so check first if you’ve got intolerance.

It took me about 5 minutes to blitz the crust ingredients and place the crust to bake in the oven. In 20 minutes the crust is done, all you have to do is to arrange the topping and cook for another 10 minutes. Not only tasty and healthy but quite simple!

Mushroom & Cauliflower Crust Pizza

For the pizza crust I used eggs, Parmesan cheese, passata seasoning and of course cauliflower and mushrooms. I simply blitz everything together in my blender, baked the crust, topped it up and bake a few more minutes. From all of our family it seemed I was the biggest fan of this pizza so I almost finished it by myself. ๐Ÿ™‚

The toppings I used were salami, Emmental cheese (mild Cheddar works too), cherry tomatoes, peppers and some fresh rocket. You can always add more toppings too or skip the salami for a vegetarian version, whatever you fancy, really! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 5-6 cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 150g Emmental cheese, grated
  • fresh rocket for serving

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200ยฐC.
  2. Mix the pizza crust ingredients in a blender and bake in a greased baking tray for about 20 minutes.

Figs & Goat’s Cheese Galette

Happy Wednesdayย guys! Today’s recipe is Figs & Goat’s Cheese Galette – sweet and sour, the combination of ripe figs, goat’s cheese, buttery galette and a bit of honey is just perfect!

Figs & Goat's Cheese Galette

As you may know I love galettes and I’ve made quite a few different versions, most of them (if not all) savoury ones. So it was time to make a sweeter version of this amazing buttery beauties. I had these ripe figs and all I could think about was figs and goat’s cheese. I got myself some goat’s cheese and I decided I wanted a galette with figs. The rest of it you can see on the photos. ๐Ÿ™‚

Figs & Goat's Cheese Galette

The recipe is very simple. The only thing you need to do is the dough for the galette. You’ll only need flour, butter and yogurt, simple as that. I had the Figs & Goat’s Cheese Galette with some honey for a kick of sweetness. And this would especially help when the gigs are not so sweet (and they’re usually not, but are still delicious) :-).

By the way, I’ve also made a Fig Tart that is very similar to the galette. It was a great success so if you’d like, you can find the recipe here:

I probably need to start jotting them down, they’re so many. Well, to be honest, that’s the case every time the seasons change but hey, I’m a foodie and I get excited about food. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you do too. ๐Ÿ™‚

Spinach & Quinoa Bites

Happy Wednesday guys! Today’s recipe is Spinach & Quinoa Bites – vegetarian, healthy and simply delicious!

Spinach & Quinoa Bites

I finally managed to find the time for this post. It’s been a crazy morning (worst traffic ever, baby’s worst tantrum at the bank) but it all looks better now. Well, apart from the weather actually, but at least it’s not that cold. And let’s be positive and look on the bright side. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’ll be hot and sunny very soon or at least that’s what I’d like to believe.

Spinach & Quinoa Bites

Let’s get to the recipe now…I made these bites last week and at first was a bit concerned whether my kids will eat them but it turned out they loved them. I don’t know if it’s because of the quinoa (they love it) or something else but the green colour was not questioned at all. And believe me, there was lots of spinach. ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, I used some Parmesan cheese and no flour at all, which makes these green bites a great gluten free alternative.

Spinach & Quinoa Bites

Here’s how to make the Spinach & Quinoa Bites

Spinach & Quinoa Bites

Spinach & Quinoa Bites

Ingredients

  • 200g quinoa, cooked
  • 100g spinach, cooked and pureed
  • 150g Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 egg
  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • salt
  • lime for serving

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200ยฐC.
  2. In a bowl, mix all the ingredients together. Start making small bites/meatballs/patties.
  3. arrange them on a greased baking tray and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until ready.
  4. Serve with some lime wedge.

https://mummysfastandeasy.com/2017/06/28/spinach-quinoa-bites/

Did I mention these are oven-baked? No frying, simply cook them in the oven, so much easier and healthier. I served them with a lime wedge. I don’t know why (probably the matching colours) but I thought it might be tasty. And it worked really well. I added a splash of hot sauce on mine, how could I not. ๐Ÿ™‚

The Spinach & Quinoa Bites can be stored in the fridge for a few days so why not make a bigger batch and add them to your salads, sandwiches or just use them as a healthy and filling snack. They are super simple to make, use only a few ingredient but very tasty and satisfying.

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ ) 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. ๐Ÿ™‚ But hey, this was Mex – inspired, it should be hot. ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s what you need to make these 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.

Double Halloumi Burger with Tapenade

Happy Wednesday guys! Recipe of the day is Double Halloumi Burger with Tapenade – ย a real meat free treat that even the meat lovers can’t resist! ๐Ÿ™‚

Double Halloumi Burger with Tapenade

The original idea was a bit different to be honest, but I think it actually got better this way. Much better. ๐Ÿ™‚ I topped this massive burgers/open sandwiches up with a poached egg and a splash of spicy sauce. There are chunky grilled halloumi pieces underneath the egg and a few on top, hence the double halloumi burger or should I say open sandwich? A bit confused about what to call it. ๐Ÿ™‚ I used toasted english muffins and loads of tapenade.

Double Halloumi Burger with Tapenade

Let me tell you about the tapenade..I only recently discovered it but I feel I can’t get enough of it. It is so delicious that I generously add it to everything – salads, sandwiches, pasta. I really enjoy it as a dip too with some homemade pita chips. To make the tapenade I also added a few sun-dried tomatoes. They really make a big difference (in my opinion) and make it all taste even more delicious. Tapenade is great for tapas and nibbles which I’ve been obsessing recently, especially during the weekends. But seriously, what’s not to love about tapas? Lots of small and cute looking dishes to choose from. Thus, there’ll be a little something for everyone, plus you get to enjoy a few different dishes. That’s the food lover in me talking. ๐Ÿ™‚ My family love this kind of dinner too so everything is working fine! ๐Ÿ™‚ And most of the time there are no leftovers at all. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. To build the burger, start with the muffin bottom, add a generous amount of the tapenade, a few pieces of the grilled halloumi cheese and finish it off with a poached egg. If wished, close the burger with the other half of the muffin. Repeat with the other english muffin.
  3. Serve with some rocket salad on a side and some spicy sauce.

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

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™‚

MM: Grilled Vegetables & Bulgur Salad Wraps

Happy Meatless Monday guys! Today’s recipe is Grilledย Vegetables & Bulgur Salad Wraps – healthy, tasty and really simple to make, loaded with grilled veggies, halloumi & chickpeas.

Grilled Vegetables & Bulgur Salad Wraps

I’ve actually made the salad in advance and then thought it would be a good idea to have it in a wrap. The salad was quite similar to the one here –ย MM: Grilled Vegetables & Halloumi Bulgur Salad, almost the same actually. All I added was some chickpeas and grilled halloumi, oh and some sweet tomato sauce.

The result was really tasty and quite filling. These wraps are not only healthy but they will keep you full for longer. And that was a great way for me to clean up my fridge. ๐Ÿ™‚ Every timeย I do that the result is quite delicious. ๐Ÿ™‚

I absolutely hate wasting food so I make sure I use every bit of food left in my fridge. Well, sometimes this is not possible but most of the time I manage to use everything I have left. ๐Ÿ™‚

Grilled Vegetables & Bulgur Salad Wrap

They’re perfect for a healthy lunch or a snack on the go. Why not make a few ahead and sort your lunch during the week. I actually really recommend prepping your lunch in advance, of course if it’s possible. From what I know and have experienced quite often as I’m starving I grab not so healthy and tasty options which I usually regret afterwards. However, If there’s a healthy meal ready in the fridge, I’m more than happy to satisfy my hunger with it. Not only that, but making your meals in advance saves me a lot of time. By the time I collect the kids from nursery and we get home, we are all starving. But my first priority is to settle them for lunch and feed them. If there’s nothing prepped for me I usually grab whatever I find in the fridge, which as I mentioned might not be the best option. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s how to make the Grilled Vegetables & Bulgur Salad Wraps

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

Here’s how to make this salad.

Warm Lentil & Grilled Halloumi Cheese Salad

Happy Wednesday guys! The recipe of the day is Warm Lentil & Grilled Halloumi Cheese Salad.

I’ve been meaning to make a lentil salad for a long time and finally managed. This salad is perfect for the gloomy winter days, it’s very filling and gives you lots of energy. And it is simply delicious. Isn’t it Spring coming already. Seriously, every year in February I’m starting to ask for Spring. Well, we definitely need more sunshine here especiallyย now when the weather’s getting colder by the day. Hopefully this is not for long and we all enjouy beautiful warm and sunny days. ๐Ÿ™‚

Back to my salad now…There’s also nutty red quinoa and some toasted dry apricots. All the different ingredients make this salad bursting with flavour – it’s sweet, sour and nutty, lovely combination and healthy too. ๐Ÿ™‚

Warm Lentil & Grilled Halloumi Cheese Salad

What I did was to use lentils leftovers. I had made lentil soup the other day (which by the way our family absolutely love, should share the recipe) and I had a small bowl left. So I used it! ๐Ÿ™‚ Well, I drained it but because the lentils were already flavoured from the soup it made the salad even tastier. I didn’t really use any dressing, as I said the lentils were already dressed. ๐Ÿ™‚ But I added a splash of my favourite garlic sauce. Lentils and garlic is a must! ๐Ÿ™‚

If you, however, decide to go with a dressing, I’d suggest simple olive oil, lemon juice and salt. Simple, fresh and tasty. ๐Ÿ™‚

Warm Lentil & Grilled Halloumi Cheese Salad

Oh, and what about the Halloumi cheese? What’s a salad without a bit of cheese? ๐Ÿ™‚ I seriously love this. To me, it tastes like a mixture of gooey Feta and Mozzarella, so appetizing. Honestly, though, so far, I’ve been only using Halloumi in salads. Salads with Grilled Halloumi are not regular salads. ๐Ÿ™‚ But my point is where else do you use it? Have you got any interesting and yummy recipes? I’d love to hear your ideas. Please share below. ๐Ÿ™‚ Meanwhile, I’ll try and invent a ‘not salad recipe’ with Halloumi cheese. ๐Ÿ™‚

Warm Lentil & Grilled Halloumi Cheese Salad

Oh, and just to let you know, I had cooked all the ingredients in advance so I only had to combine everything. It makes things so much easier and quicker. I think I always have some cooked quinoa stocked in my fridge. And the lentils were leftovers. ๐Ÿ™‚
