I am always on the hunt for different veggie side dishes to serve during the week. We eat a LOT of mushrooms in our house, and these large easy, cheesy stuffed mushrooms are one of my new favourite creations. They also fit my week night supper criteria of being quick, nutritious and very delicious!

So here’s the story, and I wonder how many of you can relate? I love breakfast, and I always make sure the cupboard is stocked with one of my favourite healthy home made granolas (like this chocolate granola) so I never have think about what I am going to eat. Easy. Dinner is also not too much of a bother as I have a bunch of great recipes that I make regularly and I tend to have all of the ingredients on hand. But then there’s lunch… this is where my inspiration (and motivation) seems to wane and I never quite know what I feel like making. So I am always excited when I come across new and interesting ideas, like today’s recipe for mushrooms on griddled polenta with pecorino cheese.

Another Easter holiday has come and gone and I hope you had a lovely one! We managed to escape up the coast for a few days of beach bliss but it’s back to business now and the never ending lunch boxes, laundry and loaded inbox. (Take me back to the beach!) This is a wonderful, easy recipe if, like me, you are craving veggies and healthier meals after enjoying all of those Easter holiday treats! May I present my crustless roasted vegetable quiche.

This incredible lamb recipe comes from one of my favourite cookbooks, “Jamie’s 30 minute meals” by Jamie Oliver. It was a Christmas present from my lovely sister many years ago and I have used it often when I need week night supper inspiration. All of the recipes I have tried so far have worked really well but this easy lamb and vegetable platter really impressed me. It’s a simple recipe when you look it but it tastes incredible, and best of all you can have this gorgeous platter of food (it’s a feast, let’s be honest) in no time at all!

A few posts back I mentioned a fantastic new recipe book I had bought for myself. “Deliciously Ella” by Ella Woodward is a must have for your collection if you are following a vegan diet or simply looking for more plant-based inspiration when it comes to your meals. The book is filled with tons of tasty ideas and her recipes are simple and easy to follow Although I have only had a chance to try a handful of her recipes this simple vegan Thai curry with chickpeas is definitely my favourite so far!
