    Default What are your favourite family meals?

    So I am stuck in a food rut and in desperate need of cooking inspiration! Especially as being crazy busy at uni all year made cooking dinners quick and boring. So what are your favourite family meals? 😊

    Home made pitta pizzas, baked salmon, pasta bake, mint yoghurt lamb wraps. That's about my limit, I despise cooking!

    DH does pork roasts, red curry, Rogan josh, slow cooked pork in cider, burritos.

    I like to make simple curries. Make the sauce, pour it over cubed beef or lamb in the slow cooker and let it go all day on low. Serve it with cauliflower "rice".

    Simple protein & three vegie dishes like salmon, white fish, chicken, beef or lamb chop with a couple of sides (potato salad, green salad, raw veg sticks, stir fry veg etc). I add lots of herbs and seasonings to keep it fresh and tasty.

    Lots of roasts and soups when it is cool enough to have the oven going.

    What do you put in your curry sauces?

    One I really like lately is actually a Pete Evans one. Here's the recipe (it's for "Butter Chicken", but I use the same sauce for beef and lamb and it turns out really nicely).

    Fry 1 diced onion in 4 tablespoons of coconut oil over medium heat for three minutes. Then add 4 crushed garlic cloves, 2 tsps garam masala, 1 tsp cardamom, 1 tsp ground coriander, 1 tsp ground cumin, 1 tsp ground ginger, 1/2 tsp paprika and 1 tsp turmeric. Add 3 tbsps tomato paste, cook off for a minute, then add 1 tsp sea salt (I find this too much for me - prefer 1/2) 2 tbsps lemon juice or vinegar, 1 x 400 ml can coconut cream (milk works just as well).
    After this is at a simmer, I pour it over the meat chunks in the slow cooker, pop it on low for about 4 hours. Really tasty, and worth all the fiddly spices.

    I have this in the slow cooker now over a leg of lamb. Smells sooooo good!
