After eating not so light meals last couple of days, today I was in no mood to repeat the same pattern. At first I started planning for the week and put some chickpeas in my slow cooker – to be boiled in 4 hours. I thought I could make some chickpea couscous salad for work later. It was almost [...]

Suji Kheer

By Amanat Khullar This morning I had an urge to eat something sweet. I wanted to keep it quick, healthy and ofcourse “YUMMY”  to satisfy my cravings.First thought that popped in my mind was kheer.

Basil Pesto and Tomato Sandwich

Here is an easy to put together lunch-ready in less than 5 minutes and can be prepared ahead and packed to go. It is a no brainer if you have some Pesto on hand. I usually prepare a big batch of Pesto and keep some frozen. The sandwich when combined with a healthy side qualifies for the ’400 [...]

I wanted to try making it ever since I noticed my son liked a ‘Creamy Pesto Chicken Pasta’ from a local Italian restaurant.

Savoury Hurry-up Muffins

By Heidemarie Swanepoel These are quick and easy muffins, with a delicious filling in the centre. I find that these muffins are also a good way of using up those little bits of left-overs that are too little to use for another meal, but too much to just throw away. I like using these little bits in [...]

With days warming up a bit, I prefer having salads for lunch or as a side (sometimes bigger than a side portion) for dinner. I am big fan of low calorie salsa based Mexican style salads-which one of these days I will put together for my blog as well. However, these days I am experimenting with baby [...]

Here is one flaming hot recipe. I have been trying to imitate Chipotle Mexican Grill’s chicken for quite some time. Although this may not be the exact same thing, but it comes quite close – only slightly hotter. Since I like hot food and usually am never too embarrassed of putting Tobasco/Tapatío [...]
