Fresh Summer Chickpea Salad

Dear Reader,

During summer time, you really aren't in the mood to slave at the kitchen so an easy yet tasty salad with loads of protein is great. I use chickpeas, but you can use lentils of your choice and not split peas as they tend to break easily. A lentil with skin is recommended.

Spice Mix For Chicken!

Dear Reader,

If you're trying to eat clean, then store bought spice mixes might be problematic because they contain many allergens and preservatives that aren't good for health generally. If you're looking for maximum flavour, then making your own spice mix, and keeping it in your spice cupboard for 3 months, would benefit you also. The trick about a spice mix is balance, but please feel free to tweak it as you wish to your own taste.

This spice mix is great on roast chicken. Mix it wish oil and whole, dried rosemary and rub it generously all over a chicken. Leave it to sit in a very cool fridge for at least 24 hours in a zip lock bag or in vacuum pack and roast it at 200° C for 10 minutes and at 180° C 35 minutes. Take out the oven, let it rest for 10 minutes and serve.

Easy Stir Fry

Dear Reader,

If you're looking for a low carb dish, and you are pressed for time, then try this recipe. I like cabbage a lot. I know that it's not everyone's favourite but put some chicken and soy sauce in it and cabbage gets a very sexy asian upgrade.

Easiest Pasta! Chicken, Bacon and Sun-dried Tomatoes.

Dear Reader,

I decided to make this insanely easy recipe because I am a fan of cooking quick dishes that pack a lot of flavour, but also, I like to cook dishes that I can ask my husband to make. The easier the better because I do not want to intimidate someone with cooking. So, I generally like to share simple meals rather than tedious, complicated ones.

This recipe is great for those who prefer gluten free cooking like me because the sauce for the pasta had no flour to thicken it. It has no Bechamen Sauce.
