Yesterday was a busy day in my kitchen, the most time I've spent cooking in a long time.


Hungarian mince

This is really good for anyone doing 5:2 as it's only 200 calories (before you add your chosen side)


450g Beef Mince

Half a tin of chopped tomatoes

1tsp of oregano

1 onion

1 carrot

1tbs paprika

1tbs tomato ketchup

Salt and pepper

60ml of water



Fry the mince beef until browned

Add onion and paprika and fry for another few minutes

Add the tomatoes, water and other ingredients and cook for around 35 minutes.

Serve with steamed veg or mash



This is a little bit of a strange one, I had beet root and cabbage to use up and though it may make a nice soup.

Beet root and cabbage soup




Leftover cabbage

Beet root

1tin of chickpeas

1l of veg or chicken stock




Fry the onion until softened, add the cabbage and beet root for a further minute.

Add the stock and cook for around 20 to 30 minutes until veg is cooked and stick in the blender.



And dessert……


Salted caramel squares



Caramel recipe from last week you can find it here

Good quality chocolate


2 tbs butter


Firstly we need to make crumbs with the biscuits, I had fun bashing them with a rolling pin but you can use a food processor.

Melt the butter and mix in the biscuits,

Line a tray with grease proof paper

Squish biscuits down into the tray and stick in the freezer while you make the caramel

To make the caramel, if you missed last weeks posts you can check it out for the recipe.

Remove biscuits from freezer and pour over caramel.

Leave to,set in freezer for at least an hour before adding melted chocolate on top.
