As summer is just around the corner, I love trying new recipes with fresh ingredients!
Using plenty of fruit and veg, summer dinners are light and refreshing – and I’m excited to start getting the BBQ out too and doing more cooking outdoors. Below are a few of my favourite healthy dinner recipes:
Grilled garlic prawns with asparagus
For this delicious dinner, I marinated the prawns in garlic, chopped red chilli and honey before grilling them, and for the asparagus I blanched them before seasoning them with chilli and lime juice and popping them on the grill too.
I served this with some rice and soy sauce (although you could go for quinoa instead for a more nutritious side). While it’s not quite warm enough to use a BBQ grill outside yet, I used this ProCook Griddle pan and it worked perfectly!
It heated up quickly and was easy to clean. I’m a big fan of the ProCook range from Steamer Trading Cookshop*, and they’ve kindly set up a giveaway for my readers which I’m excited to share with you at the end of this post – so keep reading!
Balsamic chicken and roast vegetables
This one-pan dish is super simple and makes for easy cleaning. These types of dishes are also fantastic for meal-prepping as well!
Carrot, lentil & tahini salad
I used to roll my eyes at the word salad, but nowadays I like to consider myself a salad connoisseur – I enjoy the challenge of making salads as delicious as possible, while keeping them relatively healthy. This one is super flavourful and hearty!
Okay so depending on how much sushi you eat and what sauces you enjoy with it (we like to eat rather a lot!), it can make for a really healthy dinner. We’ve made it a few times now, since our Philleigh Way course with Naoko’s Kitchen, and it’s still our all time favourite food!
The ProCook range has a variety of chef quality knives, perfect for sashimi and sushi making.
Griddled Sweet Potatoes
Obviously this isn’t a main meal – more of a healthy side dish! This is a great recipe to use with a griddle, or to bring along pre-prepared to a BBQ. Yum!
Vegan pesto pasta
Yum! Sometimes you just need some garlic and some pasta in your life! I love the colour of this beautiful green dish, and eating it as leftovers the next day with some salad is the perfect quick and easy lunch.
