I haven’t been feeling too great this week so have just cooked simple meals that are still wholesome.
On Monday I had a mushroom and garlic burger from Dragonfly Foods with a sweet potato and peas. I really like the Dragonfly range, it is tofu based and organic. This was the first time I’d try the mushroom and garlic burger and it had great flavour.
On Tuesday I made a courgette and mushroom frittata with salad. This is becoming one of my staple dishes and I love it!
As usual I went swimming with my Mum on Wednesday and she made this butternut, chickpea and red onion salad with a Ras el hanout dressing. The spice mix really added a warmth to this winter salad.
On Thursday my husband and I had pasta with aubergine pesto from Sacla with onions and peppers – he had his with salmon and I had tinned green lentils with mine. This was a really simple meal that took less than 30 minutes to make but was so tasty and filling.
On Friday we went to my in-laws for the weekend and after a long and difficult week I was really happy not to have to cook. My Mother-in-law made Linda McCartney sausages with potatoes, peas and loads of gravy – great comfort food!
On Saturday evening the rest of the family had tandoori chicken, so I had a veggie quarter pounder from Waitrose with green rice.
I got some veggie haggis in Waitrose which I had this morning for breakfast with houmous and toast. I’ve had other vegan haggis before but this one was really easy and microwaved in 60 seconds.
I got a naked burrito from Tortilla on the way home today but forgot to take a photo. (They aren’t that photogenic anyway!)
Hopefully I’ll be feeling a lot better next week and up for some more adventurous cooking!
