Scotch Eggs

If you love the classic pub snack ‘scotch eggs’ then these delicious, healthy alternatives are not to be missed. We’ve created them using lean turkey mince and coated in ground almonds instead of breadcrumbs to create a nutritious snack that saves on calories. When boiling the eggs don’t be tempted to leave for longer than 5 minutes. This is just enough time to cook the whites and the eggs will cook further when they are in the oven.

Pudding - Custard

This delicious pudding and custard recipe can be ready in under 30 minutes and is only 330 calories per serving. It’s super easy to make and a dessert the kids will love. We served ours with fresh raspberries and some of my healthy jam http://www.mynutricounter.com/recipe-strawberry-jam/ (which went down a treat), but you could also try a sprinkle of cinnamon or sea buckthorn powder.

Gluten-Free Slow Cooked Fajitas

Gluten-Free Slow Cooked Fajitas These delicious slow cooked fajitas are perfect for an evening with friends. We’ve used gram flour to make the tortillas which is sometimes referred to as chickpea flour and makes a tasty, healthy and gluten free alternative to your typical tortillas. You could also use buckwheat flour, we have another recipe for buckwheat tortillas here http://www.mynutricounter.com/recipe-buckwheat-tortillas/. When making the tortillas it’s important to make sure you only just cover the bottom of the pan with the mixture, otherwise you’ll end up making them too thick (a bit like pancakes) and they’re much easier to assemble when thin. We like using the slow cooker to make meals when we have a busy day ahead, as it’s super easy to pop everything in, turn on and eat as soon as work’s finished.

Balinese Pumpkin Curry (Kare Waluh)

This delicious recipe was one that we were taught in a Balinese cooking class at Casa Luna Cooking School last week. It’s so easy to make and really flavoursome. We’re not massive fans of really spicy food so this dish was perfect as it’s not too hot. Most of the ingredients are readily available in the UK, but incase you struggle to get hold of any we’ve added substitutes which should work just as well. Hope you enjoy!

by

Steak with Beetroot Mash

On our recent trip to Bali we ate at the most amazing restaurant, called Indus, which is in Ubud. It has a fantastic view of the Tjampuhan river and surrounding hills and the food is incredible, so good that we decided to book onto one of the cooking classes. You can read all about that and find a delicious recipe for one of the dishes here http://www.mynutricounter.com/recommend-casa-luna-cooking-school/. This steak and beet mash recipe is partially inspired by a meal we ate at Indus (Tunisian Salad on a bed of Beetroot Mash). We’d never had beetroot mash before and it was incredible so we’ve not even been home a week yet and have already experimented to find the perfect healthy recipe for the blog. Hope you like it.

Almond Butter

Making your own almond butter (or any type of nut butter) is super easy. We use almond butter in quite a few of my recipes so we find making my own homemade version quite cost effective as we can make just as much as we need. The first time we tried to make this we did get a bit impatient and almost wanted to add some water into the food processor in the hope it would reach the desired consistency. Do not do this, the mixture will become too wet, wait it out and keep blitzing. It will take up to 30 minutes but you can just leave the food processor running and get on with other things while it’s working, you may just need to scrape the mixture from the edges of the food processor every so often. The quickest way to make this recipe is to use roasted nuts (you can roast them yourself first for 10 minutes in the oven) but raw nuts will also work they will just take longer. Don’t be tempted to soak the nuts first, as although this does make it easier to blend, it will make the consistency too runny. Hope you enjoy.

by

Caramel Shortcake

This delicious, healthy and nutritious, no-bake caramel shortcake recipe is one of our favourite snacks. You’ll need a food processor to make it but it’s a really easy, non-fuss recipe that is sure to impress. We’ve used homemade almond butter in my recipe, which is super easy to make. You can get the recipe for it here http://www.mynutricounter.com/recipe-almond-butter/, but you can also buy almond butter in most supermarkets and health food stores if you prefer. To make the base we’ve used almonds but other nuts that would also taste great as a substitute are: walnuts, pecans, cashew nuts or pistachios.

by

Boiled Eggs with Broccoli Soldiers

For an easy and healthy weekend breakfast, boiled eggs are a go-to option and for this recipe we’ve substituted bread for tenderstem broccoli wrapped in prosciutto to give a more nutritious meal.

by

Sesame Salad Dressing

This delicious salad dressing is super easy to make, really nutritious and won’t add crazy amounts of calories to your salad. It should last for around five days if stored in an airtight container and kept refrigerated. It tastes fantastic with our chicken and strawberry salad http://www.mynutricounter.com/recipe-chicken-strawberry-salad/ and apple and walnut salad.

Sweet Potato Crisps

This easy and delicious recipe makes a great healthy snack for when you’re on the go and is a fantastic alternative to crisps. For this recipe to work, the slices of potato need to be really thin so it’s best to use a mandolin – but if you don’t have one then a sharp knife will work.

by

by

Spanish Omelette with Parsnip

We really love spanish omelettes because they’re super tasty, healthy and really quick and easy to make. Traditional Spanish omelettes are made using potatoes. We’ve decided to mix things up a little bit with this version and substitute the potatoes for parsnips, so it’s a great nutritious recipe for someone who wants to cut back on carbohydrates. If you’d prefer to still use potatoes, you can still use this recipe and swap the parsnip for one potato or one sweet potato. This makes a delicious and nutritious breakfast or light lunch recipe.

Baked Mushroom - Egg

This baked egg in a portobello mushroom makes a fantastic healthy breakfast. It’s so easy to make, delicious and really nourishing too. We’ve added a sprinkle of nutritional yeast to the top of my mushrooms, which gives a similar taste to cheese (but it’s far more nutritious). It’s important to heat the mushrooms in the grill first as this will prevent them from going soggy.
