One thing last year gave me was some time to concentrate on our blog and in lockdown 1 I loved having the time to cook lots of cakes and create all the foodie posts which we featured. With the easing of restrictions and work returning to a more normal pattern this has taken me away from doing these enjoyable posts so to ensure we can post regular food posts I have had to call in the talents of my lovely stylist friend, Claire Morgan! Claire is going to help me make, prop and style the recipes each month. All (or almost all) our carefully selected recipes will be healthy with the odd naughty treat!
This salad makes a great lunchtime option and is by ‘Deliciously Ella’ and like a great deal of her recipes it is SUPER easy, looks good, tastes yummy and is good for you so win, win!
We tried it with pomegranate seeds which gave the dish some colour, crunch and some added goodness.
1/2 mug green lentils (100g)
3 medium courgettes
2 handfuls of fresh mint
4 tablespoons olive oil
Juice of 4 limes
Large handful of sunflower seeds
