Marmite Pasta – Meatless Mondays

marmite (vegemite) pasta - meatless mondays

Marmite love it or hate it? I love it or more specifically I have vegemite but it is still pretty much the same thing! This dish is perfect for those who love cheese on toast with marmite as it tastes so similar but with pasta as the carb instead of the bread! I found the original recipe with bacon in a good food magazine I believe awhile back but I have changed things up a bit. It is a fantastic little store cupboard gem for when you don’t have much in or just don’t fancy doing something extravagant. In fact Button loves it! Yeah that’s right my 9 month old baby goes mad for it! Plus the salty, savoury mix is just delicious! . Read more

Gnocchi and Courgette – Meatless Mondays

gnocchi and courgette - meatless mondays

Again with the courgette pasta I hear you cry! Either in frustration or joy – I am hoping you are crying it with joy. Trust me though I will never stop eating it and if I find a new way to incorporate it into a recipe I will! One day I might venture adding it into cake but you never know!! But I think we all have something we just can’t stop eating besides it could be waaaaay unhealthier! I would love to know what yours is! Please let me know in the comments. Read more

Quinoa Fried “Rice” – Meatless Mondays

Here is the first in the using up leftovers from making the salad jars. I love a good fried rice from the Chinese it’s one of the few meals I will have meat in but the quinoa version I don’t need any meat in at all. It’s always a great way to use up any veggies you have lying around in the fridge. This serves one but just increase it as necessary for more people. Read more

I personally love a good garden salad and recently have fallen in love with adding in cooled quinoa which makes it a bit more than just a salad! I say garden salad because nowadays there are so many varieties of salad and this is a bit more than just a few sad leaves on a plate.

Asparagus Tart – Meatless Mondays

asparagus tart - meatless monday

Who doesn’t enjoy a tart of some description (ooh er!) but sometimes you just don’t have the energy or time to put in making one from scratch. Not that I know many people who make their own puff pastry! But in a pinch when I can’t be bothered to make my own shortcrust pastry like I do for quiche. I buy puff pastry, chuck some toppings on and stick it in the oven for 15 minutes or so and voila! Quick and easy tea with minimal effort but plenty of taste. Read more
