Welcome to June’s #CookOnceEatTwice and to the May round up.
Thank you to everyone who joined in with #CookOnceEatTwice in May. We’ve had 19 fantastic entries so hopefully you’ll find lots of inspiration if you’re hoping to save time in the kitchen by preparing enough for more than one meal at a time. At the end of this post you’ll also find out which recipe I’ve made from last month’s entries as well as the linky for June.
The first entry was these gorgeous homemade Porcini and Polenta Sausages by The Veg Space. They look like a great comfort meal!
Next was Easy Peasy Foodie with a delightful Slow Cooked Chilli Beef dish. I love the use of stewing steak rather than mince and my mince-hating husband would definitely like it!
I love making soups and especially veggie packed ones like this Roasted Sweet Potato and Vegetable Soup by From Plate to Pen.
Then our first sweet entry was this beautiful strawberry No-bake Cheesecake by Hijacked with Twins. Cheesecake is always a crowd-pleaser and this one is perfect for summer!
Next were these perfectly cooked Chorizo Scotch Eggs from the Why Chef. They have all the flavours of chorizo in them and beautifully runny yolks.
Then Food Bod made a gorgeous spice mix which she turned into a Chickpea and Kale Curry. It was perfect to eat for three days and the leftovers also made 2 further meals as well! How fantastic is that!
Next up were these Caribbean Spiced Turkey Mince Pittas from The Why Chef. Packed with vegetables and lean turkey mince, they make a really healthy meal option.
The next entry was this tasty White Bean Hummus with Homemade Pesto by Maison Cupcake – a great way of using dried beans and it keeps so much better than shop-bought hummus.
Then Fix Me a Little Lunch contributed this delicious Chicken, Asparagus and Roasted Garlic Pizza. I just love roasted garlic and this looks so morish!
Then Feeding Boys shared this lovely Caramelised Onion and Rosemary Malted Loaf. Homemade bread is always such a treat and it’s definitely made me want to get my breadmaker out again!
My own entry was next. This harissa-marinated lamb salad is full of flavour and you can prepare it in advance too!
Then The Why Chef was back with these yummy Haddock Fish Bites. I love fish and these sound beautiful.
I was so tempted by the next entry – these gorgeous Croque Madame Muffins with Asparagus by Only Crumbs Remain. So delightfully cheesy looking but with the lovely salad alongside to balance the richness out!
Next was Roast Chicken and A Country Walk with some Potato and Goats Cheese Patties. You can make them with leftover mashed potato but I think they’d be worth just making the mashed potato for!
I can never resist a good curry and love the flavours in this Feel-Good Fish Curry by Family Friends Food.
Then Only Crumbs Remain shared the only other sweet entry this month: this beautiful Homemade Lemon Curd. I’m sure it wouldn’t last long and is so much nicer than bought lemon curd.
Allotment 2 Kitchen shared this lovely Miso Minestrone Soup. I have never had miso in this type of chunky vegetable soup but it sounds like a wonderful combination of flavours.
I almost always make enough pasta to last for two meals and this beautiful Baked Aubergine and Pepper Pasta Sauce with Smoked Paprika from Everyday Healthy Recipes would even please those who don’t like aubergines. I love aubergines and the addition of the smoked paprika must give this a a lovely almost Spanish flavour.
Finally The Gluten Free Alchemist shared this glorious Goose Egg Frittata with Spiralized Roasted Veg. I really would love to get my hands on some goose eggs soon to have a go at it!
Now, as usual I also picked one of my favourite recipes from last month to make for my family. This time I picked Easy Peasy Foodie’s Hungarian Beef Goulash. It was just as delicious as it sounded and even my pickiest eater, Little Miss Spice was happy to eat the pieces of beef from it without me having to take the sauce off! That is definitely a success.
If you haven’t discovered Eb’s blog then please take a look as it is full of amazing family friendly recipes and I honestly don’t think I’ve seen anything I wouldn’t want to eat!
