Refreshing (and healthy) Asian coleslaw – with many twists!

I ordered Asian coleslaw (with prawns) in a Vietnamese restaurant recently. The response I got from my fellow diners was “I never would have thought of having coleslaw as an entire meal”. This surprised me because my amazing live in chef husband whips up an Asian coleslaw for dinner several times a month, especially in summer – and it is fantastic!

The salad has a very fresh flavour (it is not mayonaise based like the traditional coleslaw) with beutiful herbal aromas, it is ridiculously healthy and a great way to sneak some vegies into those that usually push them to the slide! (boyfriends, husbands and kids!).

But wait – there’s more… it is super easy to make, and doesn’t require any culinary expertise. What is brilliant about this recipe… if you don’t like prawns, make it with chicken thighs, if you hate chicken thighs (like me!), make it with chicken or pork mince – it is completely flexible.

Enough sales pitch chit chat, here’s the recipe…

Banana Bran Muffins – both healthy and tasty…

Don’t you just love a good muffin (especially warm, straight from the oven)?

Have you noticed that the definition of a muffin has changed somewhat? Firstly, most of the muffins you can buy in a café are HUGE! A meal for 2 people. Secondly they are no longer healthy. They’re cake mixture in disguise within a muffin paper – not to mention the white chocolate chunks added, or the cream cheese icing!
