Food is one of the great loves of my life. I am constantly watching food shows, especially ones that put a focus on doing delicious meals that are also healthy and cheap. At the moment, Jamie's Comfort Food is one of my favourites - though they don't always combine either of those two factors - but are delicious! So here are the recipes that I've been drooling over the past few weeks and am waiting to pluck up the courage to try.
I recently made my own guacamole to complement my quorn lettuce fajitas (by own guacamole I mean mushing up avacados with a bit of crushed garlic and a drizzle of fat-free yogurt) and it was delicious. So I'm really keen to expand my Mexican range beyond tacos and fajitas. I'm also a big fan of big, meaty prawns and love anything with a bit of a kick so this look right up my street and would make the perfect meal for one with a little salad/couscous.
Half of my family lives in Boston, US, which is known for its seafood and ever since visiting a few years ago I have loved crab - though lobster isn't my thing. However, I honestly wouldn't know what to do with it but this recipe from Jamie Oliver is a super fast and easy way to spice up some pasta - with an added kick from the chilli too.
I'm not completely sold on the capers but the rest of the dish looks delicious, and is by one of my favourite bloggers - A Cup of Jo.
