Hummus

When I was recently asked for a hummus recipe, I realised that I just tend to throw ingredients together without weighing or measuring anything! So, this forced me to write down exactly what I do and also to double check it before I publish it. The verdict? My husband tells me it’s the best yet and I should have doubled the ingredients because we ate it all in one sitting. I know it’s really convenient to buy hummus but it’s super easy to make yourself and you’ll know exactly what’s gone into it. Go on! have a go… midlifemenu.com/recipes/hummus

Sweet potato toast with avocado and poached egg

I was late to the party with sweet potato toast! I convinced myself that it wouldn’t really cook and that it was a bit of a faff. But I’m converted :) It’s dead easy to do, taste great and is a fab alternative to bread. The flavour is quite sweet though so we tend to mix lemon juice and fresh coriander through the avocado (like a simplified guacamole) and a grind of black pepper. Super yummy and will keep you full right through until lunch. midlifemenu.com/recipes/sweet-potato-toast

Veggie breakfast egg muffins

These are super useful, and tasty, breakfast muffins that can be prepped and frozen at the weekend and then defrosted and heated up in the microwave each morning or when you get to work. I find people really struggle with breakfast alternatives to toast and cereal which seem so convenient. Here’s your breakfast alternative! www.midlifemenu.com/recipes/veggie-breakfast-egg-muffins

Cauliflower mash

I’ve been a bit slow to embrace the cauliflower alternatives. This was mainly because I was only trying cauliflower rice and not adding any spices to zing it up a bit (check out the cauliflower rice ideas). I found it all a bit bland. But now I’m a convert - flavour it up a bit and it’s great, especially as per this picture where I’ve put it on top of a shepherd’s pie mix. midlifemenu.com/recipes/cauliflower-mash
