200g red rice, rinsed
150g black lentils, rinsed
100ml olive oil and 3 tbsp extra
2 brown onions, thinly sliced
100g dried cranberries

Cook quinoa in a medium pot of boiling, lightly salted water for 12-14 minutes until just tender. Drain and set aside. Cook red rice and lentils in a large pot of boiling, lightly salted water for 20 minutes. Drain and set aside. Heat frying pan, add 100 millilitres of oil and onions, cook over low heat for 10 minutes until well caramelised. Soak cranberries in orange juice for 10 minutes until plump. Mix cumin, coriander and flour in a small bowl. Toss cauliflower in flour mix. Heat three tablespoons of oil in a large frying pan, add cauliflower and fry over low heat for 10 minutes, until soft. Toss with drained quinoa, rice and lentils. Add caramelised onions, with any extra oil from the pan. Add cranberries with orange juice, pistachios and fresh herbs. Make dressing with lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Whisk well to combine, taste and adjust if necessary. Add to salad and mix well.

Serves 4

GRILLED SWEET CORN SALAD WITH BLACK BEANS AND ALMONDS

This salad, with Mexican hints, is delicious on its own or with barbecued meats.

1 cup black beans, soaked overnight
2 small red onions
2 limes, juiced
1 orange, juiced
3 sweet corn cobs, husks on
2 eschalots, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 green chilli, finely chopped
½ cup olive oil
Salt and pepper
100g smoked almonds, roughly chopped
400g punnet mixed heirloom cherry tomatoes
1 avocado, peeled and chopped into large chunks
Handful coriander leaves, washed and dried
Handful mint leaves, washed and dried

Cook beans in plenty of water for about 60 minutes, or until tender. Drain and set aside. Peel and slice onion thinly. Pour over boiling water to cover for 10 minutes. Drain, then marinate in lime and orange juice for an hour. Heat a barbecue hot plate to high and cook corn in the husk, turning to colour evenly, for 30 minutes. Remove and cool. Peel husks and slice kernels off the cob. Place kernels in a mixing bowl, discard cobs and husks. Fry eschalots until crispy. Drain on paper towel. Drain pickled onions, reserving a little juice. Make a dressing with reserved juice, garlic and chilli. Whisk in as much olive oil as needed. Season with salt and pepper. Add beans, onions, eschalots, almonds, tomatoes, avocado and herbs to corn kernels with dressing, mix and serve.

Jamaican chicken and sweet potato mash as requested by Joey.

ETA - we make it with cajun spices rather than jerk. And we use whatever beans we have. I suspect it would work just as well with mexican spices too.

Grilled pineapple and cinnamon is currently my favourite healthy pudding. It's the sweetest thing ever so sorts out sugar/ chocolate cravings pretty well!

I've been saving some healthy eating recipes that I've found on the internet and enjoyed or amended so a clueless cook (me) can remember how to make them.

I wasn't sure if it is ok to link to it, I don't know the rules on things like that, but it isn't really a blog, more a personal place to save notes for myself and to share recipes with family and friends. There's nothing commercial or connected with anything that benefits me, so I'm hoping it's ok, since it's simpler than copying things into post after post on here as I find things people might like. I hope some people enjoy them. There's no need to be on tumblr, it's just really a way for me to have a basic webpage space to save things for when I next want to cook them.

I just bought groceries, and thought: hey it's healthy, let's post it here!

Fat-free Gnocchi with grilled chicken in pommodori sauce with fresh cherrytomatoes and grilled zuchini & paprika. Sprinkle a little (maybe unhealthy) cheese on top of it, and you have a great dinner!

Amusing title for CBBers in today's The Scientist:

"Why one cream cake leads to another."
(url=http://www.the-scientist.com//?articles.view/articleNo/37068/title/Why-One-Cream-Cake-Leads-to-Another/]here[/url])

(I'm still not entirely sure what a cream cake is, but the CS variety have always sounded luscious.)

Kathy, this shows what I'd call cream cakes - although there are one or two other possible types - millefeuilles, or cream apple or jam puffs, for instance

Thank you! Yum, the éclair family.... I thought cream cakes had to be something more European than the local "cream"-filled donuts.

Cottage Cheese Fast Feasts

1 Cottage Cheese and Vegetable Sliver Salad (Posted previously on Happy Eating thread)

I just accidently invented a delicious fasting salad. You need a mandolin because you want the veg to be very, very thin. I see from googling that most of the ones in English-speaking countries look ludicrously complicated. The Czechs do an incredibly simply one - a sharp blade straight across a rectangle of plastic.

Anyway, if you have one to hand use it to slice about half a cucumber, two or three large radishes, and a sweet pepper (I used a long thin red one). Chop up a lot of fresh chives and fresh parsley, add one or two pots of cottage cheese depending on how many calories you have left for the day, grind some garlic salt and some pepper over the whole lot, I also added some freshly ground sweet and sharp paprika but one could also add chili, stir it all up and leave for about ten minutes.

I was astonished at how delicious it was, something to do with the texture of the very fine veg. Even cottage cheese haters might like it....

2) Some Sort of Souffle

Take one pot of cottage cheese and stir in a raw egg. Season at will - I used salt, pepper and Marks and Spencer Salt, Garlic and Parsely grind - I love it.

Heat one teaspoon oil in a small frying pan till really hot.(I used Rice Bran Oil but I guess any would do - Olive Oil would add more flavour). Tip in the mixture and spread it out like an omelette. Leave to fry till crispy. I tried to turn it over but it broke up so I then squashed the bits together again.

As this is cooking slice up some veg of choice and season to taste - I used spring onions, red pepper and button mushrooms and cook in the microwave until soft. When both things are done then dump the veg on top of the "omelette" and squodge it down. Then place a plate upside down on top of the pan and turn the whole lot over onto the plate. It's too tricky to get it out whole any other way.

PS I apologise for the crude nature of my recipe writing - I have just bought a French magazine full of recipes and reading them is like reading poetry. Beautifully phrased.....

For Slimming World followers I have invented a SYN-free omelette! <drum roll>

- 3 eggs
- salt & pepper
- half a pack of Sainsbury value smoked salmon trimmings
- two triangles of Laughing cow cheese triangles with blue cheese cut into chunks

Cook very slowly using 1 cal oil spray.
Serve with a large pile of lettuce/rocket salad with 0% fat vinaigrette.

No SYNS if you use the cheese as part of your HE-B allowance. The only downside is that SLOC wants one too :)

I think I overestimated how many of those triangles I would need for fast days in the CR. I have just decanted 41 of them into a neat long fridge container.

I only have just under a month left here.....

My Mum's red cabbage recipe.

One onion
One largeish cooking apple
As much red cabbage as you like
Nutmeg
Sugar
Red or white wine vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
Butter

Butter a small casserole dish liberally.
Chop up the cabbage, onion and apple and mix together in the casserole dish.
Grate some nutmug (I grate it until I get bored!) into the mix, possibly about half a teaspoon.
Add a pinch of sugar and salt and pepper to taste.
Dessert spoon of the wine vinegar.
Lots of blobs of butter on top.

Cook at about 200 for half an hour, remove from oven and mix. Add more butter if it looks a bit dry. Cook at a lower temp, about 180 for another hour.

In my family, a cream cake is a Victoria sponge layered with cream and jam in the middle. Or, better still, cream and fresh fruit (think strawberry shortcake, only with a sponge cake rather than a US "biscuit").

We used to have wonderful fresh cream cakes when I was young.

The base was quite a large brandy-snap that hadn't been rolled, more as if it had been draped over a rolling pin and left to go cold. This was then coated in dark chocolate. Then it was lavishly filled with whipped cream.

I suspect that they were very bad for us, but they were truly delicious.
