Welcome to the April round up for #CookOnceEatTwice. I’m sorry it’s a little late this month but I am hoping to get back on track next month. Yet again there are some great ideas for meals that you can eat more than once and I’ve also chosen one of the entries from last month to make at home myself. You’ll have to scroll down to the bottom to find out which one!
First Yummy Seconds made this delicious Jerk Chicken. I love discovering new marinades for chicken and this is one that sounds fantastic!
Yummy Seconds also made Turmeric Rice to serve with the Jerk Chicken. It may be simple but would make a lovely side dish – one that I’d like to try with a curry soon!
If you’re craving some greens then this Kale Salad also by Yummy Seconds would be a great choice. I love all the citrus in it!
The next entry by The Gluten Free Alchemist was a tasty looking Spiralized Oriental Courgette Noodle Soup. It really does look like a bowlful of health!
The next entry is real comfort food, an easy potato and seafood chowder pie by From Plate to Pen.
This was followed by The Gluten Free Alchemist with another soup, this time Roasted Vegetable Soup with Gluten Free Croutons and Crispy Fried Parsley. This warming soup is actually made from the roasted vegetables that formed the base of the Spiralized Soup above.
I love the combination of pastry and curry so would definitely enjoy these Chicken Katsu Empanadas by The Why Chef. Don’t they have a beautiful glaze too!
Next was another individual pie, this time these scrumptious Vegetarian Chicken and Leek Pies by Only Crumbs Remain.
They were followed by The Veg Space with these Cider and Barley Stuffed Tomatoes. The crunchy topping sounds amazing!
Then there was Easy Peasy Foodie with one of her amazing one pot meals, this flavour-packed Hungarian Beef Goulash.
As you know, I love curries and this Vegan Japanese Katsu Curry Sauce by Allotment 2 Kitchen sounds full of delicious heat and spice.
I am a huge meatball fan so would love to try these Moroccan Meatballs with Baked Eggs by The Why Chef. Lamb and Moroccan spices are perfect together!
The meatballs were followed by another tempting spicy recipe, this Sea Bass and Prawn Moilee by Pebble Soup. I hadn’t heard of a moilee before but I am always happy to learn about new curries!
Next were some more meatballs, this time from Hijacked By Twins. These Meatballs Carnival Style are simple but delicious!
The final entry this month was Only Crumbs Remain with this gorgeous No-Knead Bread. Definitely something to try if you’re put off making your own bread by the time taken to knead it.
Finally it’s time to reveal which entry from last month’s #CookOnceEatTwice I decided to have a go at myself. Well, if you’ve been reading my blog you may have noticed that I’ve been making my own soft cheese and so I could not resist having a go at making De Tout Coeur Limousin’s Twaróg (Polish farmer’s cheese) & celery leaf frittata. Twaróg is quite similar to ricotta but I especially loved the garlic flavour in this version. It is very easy to make and so morish.
So all that remains is for me to decide which of this month’s entries to make over the next couple of weeks! The link up for May is already open so please do come and join in again. I look forward to reading all your entries.
