Squidgy Squash, Perky Pepper and Cracking Cauliflower Curry

What more can I say but YUM! Hard to believe this is Free food on the Slimming World diet.  It is loosely based on a recipe in one of this diet’s recipe books and is definitely worth a try.  I believe it is vegan friendly, gluten free and low fat.  You could add chicken breast/thighs…… Continue reading Squidgy Squash, Perky Pepper and Cracking Cauliflower Curry

SASSY SPRING ROLLS WITH PRAWNS AND CRISPY VEGETABLES

Many years ago, 1996 to be exact, I did a short Chinese Cookery Course and learnt how to cook these.  The recipe has developed over the years and largely depends on whatever ingredients I have in the fridge or basically how fat I’m feeling at the time. Ha ha. I know there are many versions…… Continue reading SASSY SPRING ROLLS WITH PRAWNS AND CRISPY VEGETABLES
