Another weekend, another set of healthy low-fat, full-of-goodness meals to make. I really like to have something of a treat on the weekend. And with chocolate & cake off the menu, meals have to be extra tasty despite my food rules.
Mixed Bean Chilli
I quite like chilli. My OH makes an amazing one with Quorn mince & tons of chillies. I’ve had mixed bean chillies before – some good, some bad. I’m not a massive fan of beans though. I find them quite dull & hate it when they’re cold. I had high hopes of this recipe though. I found it on VegWeb.com by Googling mixed bean chilli. It’s really easy to do & is so tasty. I added a touch of creme fraiche to the top. It made up for the fact that most of Twitter were having take aways! This was just as good if not better!
Pumpkin & Tomato Bake
First of all, I couldn’t find a pumpkin so we used squash. Secondly, this is weird. It kind of works, but it’s still weird. I don’t know if I’d have this again. I am so glad that I thought to make some roast spuds to go with it otherwise I would’ve been very disappointed with it. I got the recipe from the NHS Meal Planner in the Main Meals section. While there’s loads of good veg in here, it’s still odd. Chilli sauce & butternut squash? Hmmmmm… Thank goodness for the roasties – always a winner! x
