Bean and Legume Filling

They make a crazy good sandwich filling like this one. Legumes are among some of the most versatile foods and includes vegetables like peas, lentils and beans. They come fresh, dried or canned which is great. I tend to buy them canned in water as its just more convenient. As for beans, I love all kinds, butter beans, red kidney beans, chickpeas. In case you haven't noticed, I use bean in a lot of my cooking, mainly because of their health benefits.

Dark Chocolate Brownies

Looking for a little number to bake up this weekend, this one just might be for you. I love baking and ever since I started at the age of 9, I've continued to get better and better. There's something comforting about kneading a dough or whisking up some batter, so here's to a delicious batch of brownies and some hot cocoa.

Quorn Spaghetti Bolognese

Who loves a one pot dish? I know I do, they're quick and well, there's fewer dishes to do afterwards. We had this practical in University back in November and this was one of the dishes I made with my group. We had to design a day's meal plan for a Type 2 Diabetic and personally I feel that this is the best way to learn. Putting all that theory into practice, everything starts to make sense then. Anyway, here's to quick, nutritious meals and few dishes.
