Sheet pan roasted salmon, carrots & sweet potato with broccoli
So simple but so delicious! This dinner was so good I repeated it FOUR times during the week. It ticked so many boxes, minimal prep, minimal washing up, nutritious and tasty! I know a lot of people couldn't stand to have the same thing several times the same week, but this was just so good! The tastiest item was the roasted sweet potato - caramelised goodness!
Monday night's meal was literally sooooo delicious and just so easy I repeated it exactly.
Smoked salmon plate
I don't know why I have never thought of doing this before. Simple and small as it was, this dinner hit the spot and was delicious. The leftover sweet potato from the night before was heated, so added a really nice contrast to the salmon and avocado.
Single pan sheet roast
The beauty about roasting is that it is 'set and forget' - and during the 'forget' moments magic happens! I roast the sweet potato and carrots first, then add the salmon for the last 10 - 12 minutes.
Salmon & Roasted Vegetables - Take 3
Salmon simply roasted with lemon juice and accompanied by roasted sweet potato, parsnip & carrot and steamed broccolini. Parsnip is not in season, so incredibly expensive, but I just love it, and felt like a 'treat' tonight! (Still not quite sure how or when simple parsnip became a treat food!)
Smoked salmon salad plate - Take 2
This time with steamed broccoli, this was still a simple but delicious meal. I prefer warm meals so including steamed broccoli was a great accompaniment to this 'salad plate'. Upping my 'vegetable quota' also made me feel a lot better!
Roast salmon - Take 4 - This time with hollandaise sauce & steamed vegetables
Today's salmon was another easy sheet pan dish with roasted sweet potato, but this time the carrots and broccoli were steamed and I added avocado along with the slightly decadent hollandaise (store bought) as a side.
Chicken and vegetable soup with butter beans and thyme
A cross between a soup and a stew, I LOVE this meal. It is pure goodness in a bowl! I make this as a very 'clean' soup, e.g. water instead of stock etc., but create creaminess and flavour by adding crushed butter beans and fresh thyme, garlic and parsley. This is a great dish to batch cook and have a store of in the freezer.
