Welcome to March’s Cook Once Eat Twice and the February round up. February has been a great month with 26 delicious entries that just as good to eat the next day! Thank you so all of you who joined in and shared your recipes.
There were of course lots of soups and stews to suit the chilly time of year including plenty of vegetarian and vegan options. As Valentine’s Day is in February, chocolate has been a theme too with three gorgeous chocolate recipes, two of them brownies! There’s also a choice of two pies, some amazing American pancakes and a super healthy gluten free granola.
The linky for March is at the bottom of the page. Please come back soon and share all your cook once eat twice recipes.
From left to right: The first entry was this gorgeous Mexican lamb stew by Eb at Easy Peasy Foodie. And if you like lamb, Eb has loads of delicious lamb recipes on her site at the moment so do take a look.
Next was Nico from Yumsome with a beautiful vegan quick ‘n’ easy tom yam soup. If you’re craving soup and want to be reminded of summer holidays then this would be just the recipe!
Nico also linked up these decadent looking vegan salted caramel chocolate pots! I can’t help craving chocolate looking at these!
My own cook once eat twice choice was next: a butternut squash and spinach curry. I have to say it’s absolutely delicious and perfect for a meatless meal.
I love pasta so was delighted to learn about a traditional Greek version, hilopites, from Shaheen at A2K – A Seasonal Veg Table. This vegetarian Greek hilopites pasta with saffron looks perfect for a comforting winter meal!
Another real comfort food dish would be Shaheen’s vegetarian Greek Cypriot shepherd’s pie with feta mint mash. I especially like the sound of that tasty mash on the top!
Who can resist a good brownie? I can’t and would love to try these cream cheese frosted gingersnap brownies by Jhuls at The Not So Creative Cook.
I’d also love Jhuls’ chicken, spinach flatbread wraps with grilled pineapple salsa. The wraps are homemade too and the whole meal sounds so delicious and healthy!
I’d also love to try Jhuls’ Sriracha ramen noodle soup. It’s definitely still soup weather here and this would make a delicious warming meal!
It may not be Valentine’s Day any more but if you’re looking for delicious vegan recipe ideas then there are 25 fantastic plant based recipes in this post by Nico at Yumsome. Do take a look!
Then Eb from Easy Peasy Foodie shared this gorgeous curried shepherd’s pie with sweet potato mash. Definitely a great recipe to feed a hungry family!
Brownies were clearly popular this month and I am also tempted by these hazelnut and white chocolate brownies by Debbie at Proper Foodie.
Debbie at Proper Foodie also shared a gorgeous comfort food dish of haddock dauphinoise with Cypriot potatoes. I really would love this on a cold winter’s day!
Next was Eb at Easy Peasy Foodie with a pork and sweet potato chilli con carne. It’s so easy to make and would make a perfect midweek meal.
Then there were two gorgeous pies. First was a homity pie by Angela at Only Crumbs Remain. I love the sound of the cheesy leek and potato filling!
I love pies and could eat pie for dessert too so would happily follow it up with this placatory pregnancy apple pie by Jenny at Apply to Face Blog. Jenny’s blog will definitely make you laugh so do take a look if you haven’t already discovered it!
Next up was a spicy Moroccan chickpea soup by Eb at Easy Peasy Foodie. Such a simple recipe but I warn you, you’ll probably end up with a case of serious blender envy!
Then I had more appliance envy as Kirsty from Hijacked by Twins shared a gorgeous cottage pie topped with butternut squash. Another healthy and delicious recipe!
This was followed by a leek and potato dumpling stew by Monika at Everyday Healthy Recipes. I love how healthy and green it looks!
Monika also shared a delicious low fat mushroom chicken dish. A perfect choice for a healthy midweek meal!
I love the crunchy ham topping on the next recipe by Kirsty at Hijacked by Twins. This root vegetable broth with pearl barley sounds delicious and the ham is an inspired idea to finish it off!
Then Eb at Easy Peasy Foodie contributed an easy cider, cream and mustard pork recipe. The creamy mustard and cider sauce sounds just right for pork!
Then there was an eye-catching stack of beautiful American pancakes by Debbie at Proper Foodie. Not only do these mascarpone and passion fruit ones look amazing, if you go to her blog you’ll find recipes for caramelised banana and Nutella ones, toffee sauce and healthy pancakes all in the same post!
Then Caroline from Caroline Makes shared some lovely chicken and chorizo filo parcels. We often have meals with chicken and chorizo in so these would definitely suit us. Those parcels look lovely and crisp too!
Next Choclette from Tin and Thyme shared some amazingly crispy looking air fryer carrot falafels with tahini sauce. This is definitely another recipe I’d love to eat.
Finally there was a gorgeous gluten free apple pie granola by Kate, the Gluten Free Alchemist. I’d enjoy this with yoghurt for breakfast or as a healthy refined sugar free snack at any time of day!
Now of course I also made one of the entries from last month. I have to say that I was so struck by the creamy broccoli and cannellini bean soup made by Kate at the Veg Space that I just had to have a go at it myself. It was every bit as delicious as I was hoping it would be and it felt so healthy too. And here it is:
