One pot sausage stew

Simple meals don’t have to be boring

I have been on a mission to make simple and tasty meals. I aim to create recipes that can be prepared and cooked quickly on a busy weeknight. We all struggle to make healthy and delicious meals while keeping on top of everything else in life. So this recipe is designed to be healthy, delicious and easy to make. You can cook this meal on a single pot, and the preparation takes no more than 20 minutes and is portioned to feed four adults.

Scraping the bottom of the freezer

It has been a crazy week; I’ve been bouncing around all over the place with no time to sort out my life. After a frantic week with no desire to eat another portion of chilli and even less desire to go shopping, it was time to get creative. I knew there would be treasure hiding in the kitchen; I just had to find it. A quick rummage around in the freezer, I discovered a pack of pork sausages that would be a perfect dinner after some thawing. Another rummage around the fridge and the cupboards, and I had the garlic, onion, barbeque sauce and tomatoes. 

Simple but tasty

With my ingredients sorted in the morning, I knew I had a leisurely evening to get dinner made and on the table. With less than 10 minutes of chopping and preparation, I had dinner underway and a chance to sit down and enjoy some time talking with Jay. A perfect end to a busy week.

Salad roll-ups

Salad roll-ups

Madness or genius

It’s another one of those moments; it could be madness or genius, turning the salad roll inside out and removing the need for an actual wrap, wheat or otherwise. Bear with me; I promise it not only works; it is a fantastic little lunch that will make everyone happy. 

No cooking required

I do love a lunch that doesn’t need any cooking. This recipe doesn’t need any cooking at all, just a little bit of time to cut your veggies into sticks and then the rolling. They are so easy to make it is ridiculous. The beauty of this recipe is the flexibility around the fillings if you want to add something different you can, take something out, of course, you can. If the mood strikes, you can even dress the salad leaves before you use them.

Porkips

Meat chips 

You may have already figured out that meat is a huge deal in our house; our family motto may need to be meat with everything. Protein-rich snacks are a firm favourite for everyone including the cat. 

We all know chips and dips are awesome, the downside is the bloating and carb coma. Enter the salty alternative to standard chips – porkips. 

Pork whats? 

These chips are just meat. They are crunchy and salty goodness. I usually break out these bad boys for special occasions like birthdays and Christmas. They last about 5 minutes once they are done, they are easy to make and if you can stop them being eaten as is go great with dips.

Simple and tasty 

This week’s recipe is for a sausage and apple bake. Pork and apple are a match made in heaven so I didn’t reinvent the wheel with this one. 

This meal is slightly higher in fat than I would normally make so if you are tracking macros keep that in mind. I like to use plain for sausages for this recipe, that way the flavours from the honey, sage and rosemary take front and centre. 

New Zealand honey 

New Zealand has amazing honey, we are known for Manuka honey mostly but we have lots of other types of honey that have amazing flavours. One of my favourites to use is Earthbound Pohutukawa honey the honey has a flavour will remind you of butterscotch. 

The Pohutukawa is known as the New Zealand Christmas tree because of its bright red flowers that bloom around Christmas time.

The flavour makes me feel like it is summertime. With the weather getting warmer I love the taste of things to come.

This recipe is healthy, delicious and easy to make you can cook quickly and easily. The preparation takes no more than 20 minutes, that is all of the slicing, dicing and mixing.

Mexican rice with cheese and guac

Not quite a one pot meal

This recipe is easy to make and perfect for a busy weeknight, it isn’t quite a one pot meal to cook, but you serve it in one pot, so it counts in my book. Everyone who knows me knows I have Mexican inspired meals so this should be no surprise to anyone. I love the combination of pork and beef with the cayenne and garlic, the coriander and avocado bring a fresh edge to the rich flavours of the meat. Serving it all in one pot means all the flavours party together before they reach the table.

Coconut meatballs

Something different

Sweet and savoury balls of awesome. If you have come this far, you obviously want some new flavour combinations to try. Coconut and pineapple go well together. We all know the Pina colada principle applies. We also know pineapple and pork go well together. Hawaiian Pizza is a firm favourite around here. Enter some creative madness (or genius) why not combine all three flavours?

Pork, pineapple and coconut

Genius doesn’t always mean perfect. This recipe was no exception. Knowing that these flavours would work didn’t make the recipe easy to develop. As always eating your mistakes helps to refine the recipe but this one felt the envy genius might have been madness. After. Many tries (6 in total) I finally got it right.

Scotch Eggs

It may surprise you to learn that Scotch eggs aren’t Scottish at all; they are actually English. The traditional Scotch egg is made with sausage meat, coated in breadcrumb and deep-fried until they are crisp on the outside. While I don’t have anything against a deep-fried meal, I was never a fan of the sausage meat that was probably mostly sawdust and the eggs with that horrible sulphur ring; no, thank you.

A new take

I decided to try something a bit different and develop a clean eating take on the traditional recipe. As ever when coming up with clean eating, there are challenges to developing a recipe that tastes great and isn’t awful for you.

Challenges to overcome

The first challenge was getting the perfect boiled egg; the trick is cooking the eggs enough to cook the egg white without overcooking the yolk. For Scotch eggs, go for a slightly runny yolk; this will give you a perfect yolk when the egg is baked. The next challenge is getting the meat to pack a flavour punch. I love having access to good quality pork; thankfully, it isn’t hard to get free-range pork here in Auckland. I find that free-range pork has far more flavour than high intensity farmed meat; it is always best for taste. The right blend of garlic, sage and Worcestershire sauce gives the meat a real step up in flavour. Finally, getting a nice crispy coating that isn’t deep-fried, I find that coconut flour and egg coating is a great alternative to breadcrumbs, and you don’t have to deep-fry it to make it crispy. 

Instant pot

I recently purchased an Instant Pot duo crisp which is a slow cooker, pressure cooker and air fryer, plus more all in one. The last time I made up some Scotch eggs, I decided to bake them in the Instant Pot rather than putting them in the oven. I love the versatility of the Instant Pot, and it is quickly becoming my favourite kitchen appliance.
