MEAT FREE MONDAY RECIPE – Red Lentil Curry
It’s Meat Free Monday.
This is the first Meat Free Monday Recipe.
We have committed that every Monday on every Retreat will now be Meat Free Monday.
I’m excited myself to eat more plant protein. However, that is my biggest disappointment when I read vegetarian recipes…the lack of protein. Too often they are just veggies and/or grains. I want to eat protein every day, it is the building blocks for cell health not to mention it helps to fill me up.
So I’m a woman on a mission to find and make Meat Free Monday recipes that are plant protein based.
Today it’s Red Lentil Curry.
In addition to being Meat Free this recipe is also Fodmap Friendly.
Thai Fishcakes with Chilli Dipping Sauce
Totally moreish these Thai Fishcakes can be as spicy as you like. Much lighter than traditional potato based fishcakes, these Thai Fishcakes use quinoa flakes or even a little oat, making them a perfect light supper dish.
The can be made with any fish that you like, I’ve opted for Cod here but you could just as easily switch to what you like …just a note that if you switch to Salmon (which is delicious by the way) then I’d also switch the green curry paste to red, otherwise you end up with a grey and pretty offputting fishcake.
Sugar, Dairy AND Gluten Free Chestnut Cake
Can you actually believe that today’s recipe is a sugar, dairy, AND gluten-free chestnut cake??
…and it dosesn’t taste like cardboard!!
This is a cake that I make on our French Healthy Holiday as it is inspired by a local Bordeaux specialty. I promise that you will not be disappointed by this cake.
Do look for the UNSWEETENED Chestnut puree…the sweetened stuff it soooo sweet. Much better to add your own sweetness which once you have made the cake once you can alter to suit your own taste buds…personally I think it needs a little sweetness hence the addition of either honey or maple syrup, just don’t go mad with it, keep the sweetness subtle.
