We have continued our exploration of Korean food with a bulgogi tofu recipe this week, which you will find at the end of this post along with a video. I went a little bit crazy and prepared a little bit of a Korean feast for the two of us, which was a lot of fun to make!
Our new recipe this week is the fabulous naan burger, a dish we dreamt up whilst possibly under the strong influence of one two many curries. This is what happens when you try to combine an Indian dish with a burger, and, well, it’s pretty epic.
Garlic bread soup – it’s the future. We’ve tasted it.
This soup came about when we were thinking to ourselves about things we liked. Soup is obviously one of them, as you can no doubt tell from our blog. Garlic bread is also pretty high on the list. But can you combine the two?
This week’s video recipe is something a little bit different: lasagna soup. We love soup so much we decided to make a few recipes based on bringing our favourite dishes to soup form, so there are going to be plenty more where this came from.
This dish brings everything we enjoy about lasagna to a soup. It also brings along everything we enjoy about soup to a lasagne, which is pretty neat. We started with a tomato base and included plenty of the vegetables and herbs that you might want to use in your lasagna, which was a good start – but still just a vegetable soup. So how to make it more lasagna?
This week we’re bringing you some oreo chocolate cubes with a peanut butter centre that will have you melting. We wrapped up all our favourite sweet things in one place with a heaping helping of protein for a gym snack that doubles as a dessert.
We love nachos – you know that. We even came up with a way of making our own that was healthier than buying them in-store. But how can you take a plate of nachos and make it even healthier? By using roasted peppers to create chilli nachos loaded with all the best bits, that’s how.
These cheat’s healthy cheese and onion pasties are absolutely delicious, basically a modern marvel, and so much healthier than the real thing you won’t feel guilty about eating five. Intrigued? Wait until you hear how we do it.
The main problem with a pasty, AKA one of the most delicious foods you can buy on an average high street which is fully contained within its own wrapper, is the pastry. It’s full of calories, most of them contained in the braided crust alone. So what can you do about that? Well, the answer is to take the pastry away – and replace it with the far healthier tortilla.
Everybody loves pancakes, right? For some reason this week we just craved some savoury pancakes. It didn’t take long before a recipe came to mind, and these cheesy bean monsters were born.
They are an absolute joy to behold, and pretty easy to make, too. It would be pretty easy to make these vegan – just choose vegan cheese – or gluten free – with an alternative type of flour. They’re very versatile and honestly won’t take long to get the hang of. And no, you don’t have to flip them in the air if you’re not feeling brave enough!
When we found these little tortilla bowls in the supermarket, we decided they were perfect for turning our usual Mexican bowls into something a little more jaunty. We came up with these Mexican tortilla boats, based on the shape of the bowls and what they brought to mind!
Our last video was about the Sharaf falafel mix, and we couldn’t just try one. We came home with the Sharaf burger mix as well, so we could try it out and see how their stuff fares in larger sizes!
There’s no magic secret here – the mix is essentially the same, with different flavouring. The difference between making burgers and falafels is just the size that you shape them into when you are preparing them! This was just as easy to do as the falafels – if not easier, since I didn’t have to make quite as many pieces for it to work!
