Welcome to another month of #CookOnceEatTwice! With 28 entries in March this is going to be a long round up but I hope you find lots of inspiration for what to cook next.
The weather has been quite cold until recently and there are lots of gorgeous easy one pot meals but the first salads are appearing too! With Easter just around there corner there are some fabulous Easter chocolates and an amazing Bailey’s ice cream too. I’ve also made one of the recipes from last month and it was a delicious find as well as being perfect for cooler spring days. You can find out which one it was at the end of the post.
The linky for April is now open too so if you’ve come to join in then you’ll find it at the end of the post too!
Above from left to right: The first entry were some beautifully crisp looking turmeric veggie rice balls with sesame seeds by Hope at Love Food Nourish. I’d love to try these out on my children!
Next was a delicious creamy chicken broccoli pasta soup by Caroline at Caroline Makes. Perfect for colder days!
I have never tried laverbread or faggots but these Welsh laverbread and seitan faggots with onion gravy by Shaheen at A2K- A Seasonal Veg Table would definitely have made a great vegan recipe for St David’s Day!
And if you’re looking for a main dish for Easter then how about this gorgeous Spanish Style Red Wine, Borlotti Bean and Lamb Shank Casserole by Eb at Easy Peasy Foodie?
Above from left to right: Then I shared my Schwartz gluten free chilli chicken with chorizo. It makes a really easy midweek meal and is so tasty too!
This was followed by some perfect homemade chocolates by Angela at Only Crumbs Remain. If you’ve ever wanted to make your own chocolates then this is definitely the time! These ones are based on the purple Quality Streets’ purple one.
If you haven’t tried overnight oats yet then the next recipe for apple pie overnight oats by Eb at Easy Peasy Foodie would be a great one to start with!
Eb also shared a delicious lamb jalfrezi. It’s so easy there really is no need to order a takeaway!
Above from left to right: After cooking with buckwheat this month I would love to try the next recipe. It’s a buckwheat macaroni cheese by Monika at Everyday Healthy Recipes and although it looks indulgent, I promise you it’s skinnier than the average macaroni cheese!
Next was a slow cooker butternut squash and lentil lasagna by Lucy at Baking Queen 74. Such a healthy slow cooker recipe and a great way to eat a meal full of veggies!
Then Petra at Food Eat Love shared a stunningly presented pulled pork ragu served in three different ways!
British Pie Week was in March and Angela from Only Crumbs Remain shared this beautiful beetroot and lentil pie. I’d love to try it, especially as it’s such a beautiful colour!
Above from left to right: Ragu was clearly popular this month as Debbie from Proper Foodie shared an amazing Italian style slow cooker ragu!
Then Sarah from Tales from the Kitchen Shed reminded me of my childhood with a recipe for homemade Belgian buns. I haven’t had these for years and I love the sound of the gorgeous lemon and raisin filling!
My creamy dairy free chicken curry was next. I love curries and I like it even better when at least one of my children will eat them! Master Spice loved this one.
I love whole roasted cauliflower but haven’t tried romanesco yet. I hope to try one soon though and this lovely whole roasted romanesco with za’atar by Helen at Family Friends Food would definitely be right up my street!
Above from left to right: I will be eating a lot more salads soon and this quinoa stir fry salad by Kirsty at Hijacked by Twins sounds healthy, filling and deicious! It would make a great easy lunch one day.
It was followed by another fresh healthy salad full of summer flavours. This simple vegan panzanelle by Nico at Yumsome is a great way of using up slightly stale bread too!
Then Kate, the Gluten Free Alchemist shared another vibrant recipe. This iron rich spinach and parsley green houmous would make a great addition to a summer meal.
One of my favourite Italian vegetarian dishes has to be parmigiana di melanzane so I would love this vegan version by Nico at Yumsome!
Above from left to right: Debbie at Proper Foodie then shared a delicious turkey and squash slow cooker tagine. There are some great flavours in here and it is certainly my kind of meal!
It was followed by a beautiful apple rose tart by Angela at Only Crumbs Remain. Those roses might be a fit fiddly to make but it would definitely be worth it – It looks amazing!
Then Kirsty from Hijacked by Twins shared a delicious bolognese recipe using Dolmio sauce and showed how three very distinct meals could then be made from it! What great way to feed your family for a few days with only a little extra work!
Then there were more North African flavours with this beautiful Moroccan lamb sausage and chickpea tagine by Eb at Easy Peasy Foodie. I’m always happy to eat tagine and would love to try the lamb sausages!
Above from left to right: I love brownies! I just can’t resist them and would so much like to try these beautiful rice cooker brownies by Nico at Yumsome. The texture looks perfect!
From chocolate brownies to truffles! With Easter on the way then why not make a batch of these delicious vegan chocolate matcha truffles also by Nico at Yumsome? I would love some!
I haven’t got a pressure cooker but if I did then this all in one spaghetti bolognese by Kirsty at hijacked by Twins would be a great recipe to start with! And if you don’t have a pressure cooker either, the pan method is also included in the post.
Another recipe I would find hard to resist is this no churn Baileys ice cream by Kate at The Gluten Free Alchemist. I’ve already been checking the cupboard to see how much Baileys we have in the house!
What did I made from last month’s linky
Well, last month I was so taken by the beautiful colour and spring flavours in this leek and potato dumpling stew by Monika at Everyday Healthy Recipes that I just had to have a go myself. It was healthy, tasty and filling and the perfect lunch for a rainy day. I was also really impressed by how quick and easy the potato dumplings were to prepare. If you think they are time consuming to make, then just try this recipe and you’ll be amazed by how simple they are.
