2. Herby Thai Beef Salad with Coriander, Mint and Thai Basil
This Thai salad has all the ingredients you need to lighten up for spring. Protein from seared steak to keep you satisfied, a base of snow peas and cherry tomatoes, a zingy dressing and plenty of fresh herbs so you can go big on flavour without the carbs.
3. Grandma’s Tofu with Chilli Pork
When is tofu NOT a vegetarian’s best friend? When it’s teamed with chilli pork in this famous Chinese dish, Ma Po or Grandma’s tofu. Flavoursome chilli bean paste and a sprinkling of Sichuan peppercorns with their numbing effect on the tongue, pack a one-two punch of spice, while the silken texture of the tofu helps to cool it all down.
4. Korean BBQ Pork with Sesame Rice
Can’t face another boring stir-fry? Spice things up by marinating pork steaks in Korean barbecue flavours, then use the rest of the paste to make a sauce to serve with lettuce cups filled with the pork, sesame rice, spring onion and carrot for crunch – it’s a wrap.
5. Beef Kofta with Cauliflower and Chickpea Salad
This protein-packed dinner piles on the flavour too. Roast some cauliflower while you roll and pan-fry some simple beef kofta. Add half your chickpeas to the cauliflower, then use the rest to make a smooth, creamy hummus that brings the whole dish together.
6. Sesame Beef with Cabbage and Peanut Salad
This vibrant Asian salad topped with sesame-coated beef has it all – colour, crunch and a super-simple dressing of soy and hoisin sauce.
7. Cherry Tomato Bolognese with Green Olives and Basil
Spag bol is a year-round favourite, but even a classic needs a twist now and then. Give yours a new look and lighter flavour by adding fresh cherry tomatoes, basil and olives.
8. Indonesian Fish Curry with Kaffir Lime
For dinner in a flash, curry pastes are a great shortcut. We’ve used green curry paste as a base, then added fragrant kaffir lime leaf for our own flavour twist. Once the curry develops flavour, simply add delicate white fish, peas and beans, which cook in less than five minutes.
9. Thai Beef Salad with Peanuts and Steamed Rice
Up your salad game with this delicious take on Thailand’s famous larb. In place of mince, it features stir-fried beef strips so it’s chunkier, and rice that’s traditionally served on the side acts as bed to soak up the mouthwatering dressing. Finished off with roasted peanuts and fresh herbs, it’s a winner any night of the week.
10. Speedy Grilled Rump Steak with Green Beans and Feta Dressing
Sometimes we want the ease and familiarity of a traditional steak and vege dinner. While staying with basics of a well cooked rump steak, up the flavour with a quick marinade and add another dimension by whisking together a zesty dressing with lemon, sesame seeds and feta to drizzle over at the table. Steak night just got a whole lot more interesting.
