Day 987 – #33 Try 50 new recipes

img_0168Another day, another new recipe!  Again, it’s a recipe from the Lean In 15 book by Joe Wicks AKA #TheBodyCoach.  Today we have Hero Korean Pork Stir-fried Rice.  A long title for a very, very tasty dinner.  The pork strips are marinated in soy sauce and paprika.  Then stir-fried along with ginger, garlic, chilli, carrot batons, midget trees and spring onions.  The pre-cooked rice is then added and the whole lot mixed up together.  I was surprised at just how much I enjoyed this.  It’s a stir-fry.  Nothing exotic.  But it was seriously nice and I will definitely be making it again.

Yet again though, the portion sizes are massive, so be warned.  I did about 2/3 recommended portions and this is about a third again of that.  So you can see how much there is!  Poor Mark had another mountain – all of which went…..


Day 986 – #33 Try 50 new recipes

img_0165Another two recipes ticked off this evening.  Both were from Lean In 15 (second book) by Joe Wicks.

The first was this one.  In the book it’s made with Sea Bass but I don’t like fish so this is a butterflied chicken breast.  It’s basically a warm salad of tender stem broccoli (Joe’s infamous midget trees), broad beans, peas and courgettes which are mixed with butter, mint & walnuts.  The chicken (or sea bass) is grilled and added to the top.

It was really quick to make (15 minutes in fact!) and was really tasty.  I didn’t use the full quantities in the book and it was still a bit too much.  He really does make massive portions!  I’ll definitely make this one again.  It was delicious.


img_0167The second recipe is Potato salad with Butterflied Chicken (you can see why I made them at the same time!)  This is one for Mark for his lunches.  It has chicken, eggs, new potatoes and spring onions all mixed up with creme fraiche.  It’s to be served with a green salad.  This mammoth box is supposed to be one helping!  Needless to say, it’s going to be two…..
