Meal Planning Monday

Meal Planning Monday

I've seen a few blogs posting up Meal Planning Monday posts, and I've just thought about ours for the week, so if you're stuck for inspiration, here's what we are eating:

Monday - Pesto Pasta
Standard post-Zumba dinner of pasta + sauce. Will be adding some sage as my plant in the garden is over growing.

Tuesday - Ottolenghi's Barley Risotto
Spotted this whilst flicking through Jerusalem looking for something that didn't require too much shopping for expensive ingredients. It's a tomato-ey risotto with barley instead of rice, finished with marinated feta.

Wednesday - Veg Box Day - Falafel, Houmous, Carrot Salad, Wraps
Getting some carrots in our veg box so will make up a grated carrot salad with the other veggies plus a light chilli dressing. Every attempt I have made at making falafel has been a disaster so it will be shop bought all the way. I like to make wraps when I have the time, they are much better, but this is a weekday so will be good old Warburtons Square Wraps, which are great.

Thursday - Cauliflower Butter Chicken
Spotted this recipe on Pinterest, its a healthier version of butter chicken, but with cauliflower and coconut instead of cream and chicken. Very interested to see how this turns out.

Friday - Creamy mushroom stroganoff
I've got some nice egg noodles which go really well with stroganoff, and mushrooms are coming in the veg box. Will add some more of that overgrowing sage too!

  1. I made the falafel from 'Jerusalem'. They were absolutely delicious - BUT they took ages and were a bit fall-y apart-y. Definitely worth making, but maybe on a relaxed Sunday when you want a bit of a project!
