Green Goddess Quinoa Salad

In my second (you can check out the first here) collaboration with Pranita, I’m making a salad.

Taco lime grilled chicken

Taco seasoning is something quite versatile and can be used on almost anything or in anything. I find the combination of lime and taco seasoning quite interesting, especially on grilled chicken. For the chicken: Chicken breast Taco seasoning Lime juice Salt (if the taco seasoning doesn’t have any) I marinated the chicken with the taco seasoning and lime…

Sandwiches

A sandwich is a done thing for a picnic. We stuck to two simple sandwiches a Chicken with Marinara Sauce and a Tomato and Cheese one. I had initially planned to do a pesto one however one of the salads had a pesto in it, so I thought why not change it up. Again, I…

Salads

  Salads are a super easy thing to whip up for a picnic, and are honestly super easy to eat. It’s not drippy, its light and can be eaten cold. We were quite ambitious while planning and decided to do 5 salads, but in the end we only made 3 salads. I made two a…

Chicken Salad with Spinach and Bacon

Lemon and Corriander Hummus

From the last two recipes, you can tell that I’m loving lemony things right now. I decided to switch it up and do something savoury. You could serve this with lavash or pita bread. I used the same recipe as I did for the walnut lavash, I just replaced the walnuts on top with sesame…

Mock Pate with Lavash

A couple of weeks ago our college hosted a walnut competition in partnership with California walnuts. The idea was to create a recipe that uses walnuts in almost every element, but is also very innovative and different from the recipes out there. So I came up with a Walnut and Lentil Pate. The look and…
