Combine finely sliced red cabbage with chopped walnuts and mint with a dressing to go with the salmon. I usually add craisins, sultanas or currants for a bit of sweetness. The dressing I love with this is made up of, olive oil, red wine vinegar, brown sugar and dijon mayonaise.
Warm salad with greens, barely and roasted root vegetables
Use the roast pumpkin, barley & the spinach with steamed beans to make a version of this. This is an example of nourishing, hearty meal that can be created in minutes if you have done some prep, e.g. roasted the pumpkin and cooked the barley in advance.
Warm salad with poached chicken, barley, roast pumpkin, greens and plum
This is another option for a warm salad that could be made using the roasted pumpkin, poached chicken and greens I have on hand. Because I also have pre-cooked barley in the freezer, it's another example of a really nourishing meal that could be pulled together quickly.
Roast pumpkin 'smashed' with tahini & chickpeas
This can be a great base for warm salads and is a good way of using any extra roasted pumplin.
Warm salad with roast pumpkin on flatbread
Another option for warm salad. Although I don't have all the ingredients, e.g. missing roast beetroot, fetta and pomegranate I could make something very similar with the ingredients on hand.
Heating broccoli and poached chicken
One pan poached chicken with greens
This is a super simple way of using the broccoli and poached chicken I have on hand. Great if I really want to expend no effort but have something healthy one night.
Ingredients for healthy one pan chicken
The great trifecta - ginger, lemon and turmeric!
Heating barley and broccoli
Adding spinach and pre-cooked cauliflower rice with turmeric
This meal is another example of how good it is to be able to pull some pre-cooked 'fillers' out of the freezer. In this instance cauliflower rice and barley.

Other than the lettuce, all the ingredients are there to make this quick and easy stove top meal. Ready in 15 minutes, virtually no washing up, yet a 'Superfood' delight! Pictures showing how to make this can be found here.
Salmon with steamed vegetables - v2
In this instance I had leftover cabbage which I incorporated. If you had frozen peas on hand, they could be added to add an extra serve of veetables.
Sheet pan roast salmon with sweet potato & carrots
I LOVE this meal. It takes virtually no effort, but the caramelised deliciousness that comes from roasting the sweet potato and carrot turns it into healthy comfort food. - All with only one pan to wash up!
Roast salmon with vegetables - v1
This week I have everything on hand to recreate this if I decide not to go with the red cabbage salad and mint gremolata.
Roast salmon and vegetables - v2
No reason not to put this dish on 'repeat' during the week, especially as I have two portions of salmon available.
Middle eastern mince - v1
This dish is the 'flash' version of the basic middle eastern lamb recipe. But good to know about in case you have any of the extra ingredients on hand.
From this week's list it uses up the mint and roast pumpkin and lamb mince.
Middle eastern mince - v2
Middle eastern lamb mince with cumin
A version of this meal could be made with the mint and red cabbage that need to be used up. In this particular version I use home made hommous and flatbread - but you could easily forgot the flatbread and make it a bowl dish and add steamed green beans and spinach to it.
