DINNER IN A FLASH WITH RECIPES.CO.NZ

I cook for myself most evenings and some nights I find it hard to dream up an interesting dinner - for-one. I usually alternate between classic ‘family meals’ like spaghetti bolognese (with an abundance of leftovers) and simple meals consisting of roast veggies and whatever else I can throw on my plate.
 
Last night, I wanted to make my spring onion pesto recipe – a creation from last summer when I accidentally became a very proficient spring onion farmer! I was in one of those moods when you just can’t think of what you want to eat and so I opened recipes.co.nz in my browser and typed “pesto” into the search bar.
 
I had leg steaks in the fridge and so our Lamb Steaks with Chilli Pesto and Roasted Vegetables seemed to be the perfect choice. I walked up the road to my local supermarket (a 3.2km round trip) and bought the few ingredients I needed for my homemade pesto. Doesn’t daylight savings make healthier habits, like walking instead of driving, that much easier?
 
I whipped up the pesto, roasted a kumara and followed the recipe instructions to cook the lamb perfectly.

What I love about recipes.co.nz is that you can always find a recipe to suit your needs. Whether you’re time-poor or only have a few simple ingredients, we’ve got you covered. Or, like me, you can combine your own homemade recipe with one of ours – sharing is caring, right?
