This is a quick recipe very similar to my Turkey Meatball Goulash… https://lululemonandlace.com/recipes/comfort-foods/turkey-meatball-goulash-with-cauliflower-rice/ But this is an Italian take on it rather than Hungarian. I make this fairly often as it is substantial but low fat. You can serve with spaghetti or linguine, or if you are cutting down on carbs use courgette spaghetti….. Serves 4 … Continue reading Italian Turkey Meatballs

I was lucky enough to travel around Thailand a few years ago, and as I LOVE Thai food I decided to visit a cookery school.

Here in Spain there are lots of beautiful lemon trees; my aunt grows some huge juicy fruits. It is always a case of “What can we make with them?” I made this curry and slow-cooked it so you can eat the lemons within it. It is a hot curry and very zingy, not for the … Continue reading Lemon Chicken Curry
