Sweet and salty, and perfect served up on some steaming egg fried rice – it’s one of those dishes that can be prepped ahead of time, then cooked and plated up in under 20 minutes.

Full of fresh ingredients and pretty easy to make, these Blackened Halloumi Tacos are perfect eaten cold or hot – and are even better with a side of crispy Tequila Fries.
6 Lockdown Meal Planning Tips and Tricks
If you’re going to pick one thing out of the Coronavirus Pandemic that’s affecting all of us in some way, it’s got to be food. The way we shop for, cook and eat food has completely changed in the past month; we’re not eating out anymore since all our favourite restaurants and cafes have either closed or shifted to delivery only, we’re heading to the supermarket far less (or maybe even not at all), and we’re cooking from scratch more than ever before. While most of us are familiar with the process of a weekly shop – we’re probably not used to not being able to “pop back” to the supermarket for a couple of extras or fresh items that we’ve forgotten… or a pack of jam doughnuts on a whim (*sigh* the struggle is real). Lockdown food shopping and cooking for many of us (including all the extra food needed for working from home lunches) is a tricky thing to get your head around – and if you’ve never tried it before, then I really can’t recommend Meal Planning enough.
Easy Leek and Mushroom Risotto
I’ve always had trouble making risotto in the past (they’re either too gloopy or not creamy enough), but I think I’ve cracked it with this Easy Leek and Mushroom Risotto. Bulk it out with leftover veg if you’ve got any, and enjoy it all week. It’s also very easy to bring back that fresh, creamy texture once you’ve microwaved it with a little bit of butter (or cream, if you’ve got it). 🙂
