Kick Ass Kebabs with Punchy Pina Colada Rice

These are summer on a plate, what more can I say!  Perfect for a barbecue, colourful and versatile as they could just be made with Chicken, prawns, tofu or just vegetables.  The rice is fluffy and yummy.  Happy days.  Relatively low in Slimmingworld Syns. Serves 4 Slimmingworld Syns = Approximately 4.5 Ingredients For the kebabs…… Continue reading Kick Ass Kebabs with Punchy Pina Colada Rice

Seriously Show Stopping Spanish Shellfish and Chorizo Stew

I can’t take any credit for this other than I’ve adjusted the recipe slightly to make it a bit lower in Slimmingworld Syns.  This is one that I saw the wonderful James Martin make on his Saturday morning show on ITV https://www.jamesmartinchef.co.uk/recipes/spanish-seafood-and-chorizo-stew/ The original recipe calls for butter beans or maybe chickpeas but I didn’t…… Continue reading Seriously Show Stopping Spanish Shellfish and Chorizo Stew

Neta’s Naughty Nasi Goreng Style Rice

  The photos haven’t come out very clear on this one but trust me, it’s yummy. Nowadays you can actually just buy the ready-made nasi goreng paste in most supermarkets but this home-made version is a lot fresher and healthier and gives you a good old smack around the face. I have made this with…… Continue reading Neta’s Naughty Nasi Goreng Style Rice

Sumptuously Show Stopping Stuffed Squid Asian Style

  I have to say this one is very much a joint effort with Stella as she had previously done something similar a few weeks ago. In fact it’s the first time I’ve ever tackled a dish like this as I always thought it would be too much like hard work but as long as…… Continue reading Sumptuously Show Stopping Stuffed Squid Asian Style

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
