The weekend has arrived!
For most people Pay Day has come a little earlier this month and for those who sadly still have to wait – rest assured you’re almost there.
We’re slap bang in the middle of Winter and you know what that means – piping hot bowls of soup, cosying up by the fire with hot chocolate and basically just comfort food everywhere you look!
If you’re looking to indulge, while also dodging the carbs, channel your inner Francophile with a low carb version of a Croque Madame.
This chocolate, honey and hazelnut fridge fudge is not your traditional fudge recipe but more like a chocolate-fudge fusion. Sweetened with honey instead of sugar, it has a silky smooth, melt in your mouth texture that will take care of your all your sweet-tooth needs.
The flavours of a Spanish chicken pie with chorizo and sweet peppers, topped with a buttery shortcrust pastry will warm your family’s bellies.
Yet another recipe that bears witness to the fact that food does not require meat to be comforting, is this rustic ratatouille infused with butternut, courgettes, sweet potato and more.
The ultimate weekend quick fix comes in the form of these minute steaks with tomato butter and pan fried veggies.
Make these cashew and tahini bliss balls to snack on over the weekend and prepare a batch for next week’s lunch box treats. They’re packed with good-for-you ingredients and are sweet enough to hush your sugar craving.
One can always do with a creamy butternut soup recipe and with the low temperatures we’re currently experiencing, we bet that it will come in handy.
