It's the first Monday of the new year and most people are back to work today, so cooking a tasty meal might be quite low on your to-do list, but we have five delicious recipes for you to try out this week to ease your way into 2020.
Our food cravings have inspired this list, based on recipes we've been posting on the site lately. The five dishes below are ones we know we'll cook again and again, so try them out with us and let us know what you think!
Triple chocolate mousse
The January blues are the perfect excuse to treat yourself to some delicious dessert and we think this triple chocolate mousse from the new Butlers Chocolate Cookbook will hit the spot perfectly. Made with three types of luxurious chocolate, this mousse manages to be light and rich at the same time. Get the recipe here.
Nutty and light, we love to make a big batch of these gluten-free pancakes at the weekend as a way to meal-prep breakfast for the week ahead. One or two pancakes is enough to fill us up for the morning and they reheat wonderfully – simply pop them in the toaster and you're good to go. Try the recipe here.
Vegetarian buddha bowl
When lunchtime rolls around, we're usually absolutely starving and ready to eat anything we come across. Instead of wasting money on lacklustre supermarket sandwiches and salads, for 2020, we're committing to bringing our lunch into work most days and this buddha bowl recipe is at the top of our must-try list. The best part about it is that it's completely customisable, so we can add whatever type of vegetable we like. Get the recipe here.
Seasonal soup with red pesto
This is another completely customisable, filling recipe. While the soup is extremely tasty, we're fairly obsessed with the red pesto that comes with it. We often make extra pesto to have with our lunch (like the buddha bowl above) as it works really well with salads, chicken and more. Get the recipe here.
Spicy bean tacos
Lots of people are limiting the meat intake this January and if you're doing the same, these tacos are a good addition to your repertoire. The beans pack a serious punch of protein and are extremely filling to boot, but if you are craving some plant-based protein, they work very well with diced chorizo. Try the recipe here.
