Oh Yummy! Healthier Eating doesn’t get any better, this was delicious. A middle eastern style frittata and so versatile, you can eat it cold or warm, lunch or dinner.
Spray Fry oil or veg oil
1 red onion, sliced finely
200 g curly kale
200g cabbage – cut into ribbons and chopped
2 tsp garlic granules
1 tsp ground fenugreek
1 tsp turmeric
8 large eggs
2 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp plain flour
2 tbsp greek yoghurt, I used low fat
2 small handfuls of cranberries
40g pine nuts
200g feta cheese
Salt & pepper to taste
Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add in the onions and cook until soft.
Increase the heat to medium to high and add in the kale, stir fry for about 4 minutes until wilted. Add in the cabbage and stir fry for about 5 minutes, add in the garlic and spices, season and cook until wilted and cooked through, about another 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Preheat your oven to 200 deg and line an ovenproof dish with baking paper. I used a tin 24 x 24cm.
Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl and whisk. Add the baking powder, flour, yoghurt and salt, mix well.
Add in the cranberries and pine nuts, stir through.
Once the greens mix is cooled add to the egg mixture little at a time and mix through.
Fold in the feta pieces and pour into your prepared oven dish, evenly spreading the mixture.
Bake for about 30 minutes. Insert a knife and make sure it comes out clean. Allow to cool slightly. Slice and serve.
This will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days and you can also freezer any leftovers.
This was a recipe I put together trying to use up leftovers in my fridge. It was absolutely delicious, if I do say so myself. Next time, I would probably use 2 less filo sheets though and maybe omit the panko breadcrumbs.
Makes 1 roll (about 8 slices)
6-8 filo sheets
1/2 a large white cabbage – finely sliced
1 carrot – shredded
2-3 orange sweet peppers – finely sliced
60g chopped chorizo
small handful of panko breadcrumbs
Salt & rainbow pepper to taste
1 tbsp butter – melted
1 tbsp dried onion granules
Preheat your oven to 190 deg. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
Heat a little spray oil in a pan on medium to high heat and add in the onion granules, cook for about 30 seconds.
Add in the cabbage, peppers and carrot and stir through for about 10 minutes.
Then add in the chorizo and continue to cook for about 5 minutes or until everything is softened and slightly browned. Allow to cool.
Meanwhile, unroll the filo pastry and with the melted butter brush lightly on 1 filo then sprinkle some panko breadcrumbs, then lay another filo sheet onto, then brush with butter, then sprinkle some breadcrumbs over, then another filo sheet on top and so on and on until you have used all the sheets.
Take the cooled cabbage mixture and place in the middle of the sheets, leave about a 2″ border all the way and brush with melted butter.
Take the 2 short ends and fold into the mixture
Then gently roll up the filo pastry, place onto the baking tray and bake for about 30 minutes.
Remove, slice and enjoy. (Beware, it is very crumbly..lol)
This little dish is so refreshing. It was a lovely sunny day here this weekend so decided I wanted something cool and refreshing & this done just that job. I served with my pulled peanut butter chicken and was delish.
Makes enough for about 4 people or 8 smaller side portions.
1/2 large white cabbage – sliced finely
100g or more of peanuts – chopped
5 spring onions – chopped
3-4 sweet peppers sliced – various colours
1 large handful of coriander – finely chopped
Salt & pepper to taste
For the dressing:–
2 tbsp Rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp sweetener (I used a low calorie option)
2 tsp toasted sesame oil
2 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp Hot Sauce (less or more if you like it spicy or not)
3 tbsp toasted peanut oil
In a bowl mix up the dressing thoroughly until combined.
Place all the slaw vegetables in a bowl and season
Pour over the dressing and mix to combine.
Serve immediately or keep in fridge for up to 1 day.
This is a Scottish Traditional Dish, made up of mainly Potatoes, onion & cabbage. I love this dish it is such a warming comfort food dish but healthy and nutritious. It was chilly & wet here today, so this was the perfect dish to go with my chicken tonight.
250g potatoes – skin on and cut into small chunks
200g Turnip – cut into small chunks
1 white onion – finely sliced
1/2 green cabbage – finely sliced
Salt & Rainbow pepper (or black pepper)
1 egg yolk
40g low fat cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 200 deg
Place the potatoes and turnip in a large pan salted boiling water and gently boil until slightly softened.
Meanwhile, spray a fry pan with low fat oil and cook the onion & cabbage until softened and slightly browned.
Once potatoes etc have softened, drain and add the the cabbage pan, mix and gently mash, not too much as your still want some chunks.
Decant into an oven proof dish and mix with the egg yolk, season with salt & pepper and sprinkle the cheese evenly over the top.
Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
Serve. Yummy! (A little splash of Worcestershire Sauce with this is amazing also)
Having some Red Cabbage left over, I decided to try my hand at a spiced red cabbage as I’m having red meat tomorrow and think this will be the perfect side dish.
Makes a full 400g jar
1/2 large Red Cabbage – very finely sliced
1 bramley apple – very finely sliced
1 garlic glove – sliced finely
3 tbsp brown sugar
3 tbsp red wine vinegar
For the spice bag:-
5 cardamon pods
1 cinnamon stick (or 1 tsp cinnamon)
1 star anise (or you could use chinese 5 spice)
1 muslin bag (I didn’t have this, so I used a tea bag!)
First of all preheat your oven to 130 deg.
Place all the spice ingredients into the muslin and gather to tie together and make a bag. If you don’t have this you can use a Tea Bag, I emptied the tea out carefully by cutting the top off the T Bag, added in all the spices and tied with some thread. If using the T Bag you will need to cut up cinnamon stick or use powder.
Place the spice bag in a casserole dish. Then layer the cabbage, garlic, apple and brown sugar.
Then pour in the red wine vinegar. Place lid on dish and put in oven and cook for 3 hours.
You might need to stir half way through.
Once finish, remove and serve. Or let cool and place in fridge for next day or later.
Looking in Fridge I had to use the cabbage up but wondered how I could jazz it up! Looked in my spice rack and this is what I put together. Tasty absolutely sensational. This could also work with Cod and Chicken. It is also low in calories and fat….Result!

1 clove Garlic – crushed

1 tsp Gram Masala
30g Lentil Sprouts (optional) I had these left over so I just put them in.
Mix the Gram Masala and Curry Powder together and rub into Salmon
Heat up a griddle pan with spray oil and place Salmon on to cook through (approx 10 mins)
