Mushrooms stuffed with Feta, Bacon and Spinach

When I was younger I used to make mushrooms with melted cheese on the stove with my dad. I haven’t made it in years but I recently came across this much healthier recipe which brought back those fond memories.

This recipe is an entrée, a snack and a main meal (well, it has become one now that I’m unwell). It can be eaten right away, stored in the fridge or frozen and eaten at anytime you feel like reheating it (directions on this below). Continue reading

I have always been a fan of zucchini fritters. You manage to consume a good portion of veggies in a serving but the fritters themselves don’t taste particularly healthy – in fact, to me, they have always tasted a little bit like savoury pancakes. Continue reading
