    hi there
    inspired by BL i'm going to start recording recipes which have worked well for me...
    so, tonight i had:

    grilled halloumi with broad beans, peas and rocket salad. It was absolutely gorgeous!!!

    serves 2 as main, 4 as starter

    150g broad beans
    - i used canned
    200g frozen garden peas
    4 spring onions trimmed and finely sliced
    3 tbsp pine nuts, toasted
    2 large handfuls of Rocket

    mix above all together



    Dressing
    3 tbs olive oil
    Juice of 1 lemon
    1 tsp caster sugar
    1 small clove garlic, finely chopped
    Sea salt and black pepper
    1 tbsp of fresh mint, finely chopped
    1 mild red chilli seeded and finely chopped

    mix together and shake, drizzle over salad

    1 x 250g Halloumi cheese cut into slices - grill for about 3 mins each side,place on salad

    about 380-400calories if you are counting!

    Yum Daisy! That sounds lush! My hubby loves that kind of cheese - I have never tried it but think I will be! Do you buy it at the cheese counter, or already wrapped, etc?

    Sounds good!

    hi BL
    i get it ready wrapped - just on the cheese bit at supermarkets.

    tonight i had garam masala spiced brown rice with peas and pumpkin seeds

    brown rice and garam masala cooked in tablespoon of olive oil for 3 mins in a frying pan. Added 1pt of marigold stock and simmered sort of risotto style for 25 mins. Added in petit pois and cooked for 5 mins more. drained then tossed in lots of warm, toasted pumpkin seeds.

    had it with half a fish cake

    really really nice - very more-ish ( but i resisted!)
