Hi all! Welcome to another week of simple meals that are gluten free, dairy free and sugar free :D The recipes will have options, if you want to include burger buns for your burgers then go for it, if you want cheese sprinkled over your stuff potatoes, then do it! My meal plans and recipes that I provide you with are guides, use them how you please :) 

And I may have gone a bit over board with bacon this week!

Recipes


Moroccan Chicken Burgers


2 x chicken breasts
Moroccan seasoning
rashers bacon

3 eggs
kale or baby spinach
lettuce leaves

2 -3 tomatoes, sliced

red onion, sliced
grated cheese (optional)

burger buns (optional)

1 Oven heated to 180C. Cut the chicken breast into good sized chunks, if you have a good knife cut through the chicken breast in the middle horizontally. Coat in Moroccan seasoning. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Ensure they are not overlapping. Cook for 15 minutes. Turn over. Cook for another 5-10 minutes, until cooked.
2 Heat up a fry pan to high, place the bacon in the fry pan and cook for a few minutes, move the bacon to the outside of the pan and add the eggs into the middle. Either leave the eggs to cook without turning over, or flip your eggs once the whites are set.
Once the meat and eggs are cooked, prepare your burger buns, or lettuce leaves. Place one piece of chicken, bacon and egg into your lettuce leaf, then put the rest of the toppings on top.

2 Oil the steaks with 1 tablespoon of olive oil on both sides, followed by salt and pepper. Heat a large fry pan to medium-high. Cook the steak for 3 minutes on each side. Then let rest out of the pan.
3 Using the same pan, place another tablespoon of oil into the pan, add the asparaugs spears (ends broken off), along with the bacon and gently fry for around 5 minutes.


Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
Recipe is based on one I saw at www.100daysofrealfood.com

3 orange sweet potatoes, washed and dried
1 yellow pepper, roughly chopped
1 x 400g black beans, drained
1 avocado, roughly chopped
2 x bacon rashers (optional), chopped and cooked/fried

Heat oven to 200C. Rub the kumara with oil and place on a lined baking tray. Cook at 200C for around 45 minutes or until well cooked. 

2 Slice a top off each kumara and scoop the flesh into a bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl and gently stir. Re-fill each kumara with some of the mixture. Sprinkle each with a little grated cheese, if using.
3 Cook again for 15 minutes at 200C. 



Smoked Fish SaladWe are hopefully getting some smoked fish this week, if it doesn't happen, I will think up something else. The plan is for a simple smoked fish salad.

smoked fish, flaked
large handful of baby spinach & kale
2-3 tomatoes, chopped
1 red capsicum, chopped
1 avocado, chopped,
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 - 2 tablespoons chia seeds


1 Place all ingredients into a serving bowl and roughly toss. Serve. Too easy!! Add a dressing if you wish. A little olive oil works nicely.

Venison schnitzel
I love love love this Chelsea Winter recipe!! (Click on the title to be sent to her recipe)

Last time I made it I used almond meal instead of the breadcrumbs, and I left out the flour, and it still worked a treat, I think! I will do the same again. I will also be using venison schnitzel instead of beef. And my partner wants bacon to be cooked inside the crumb.... With the amount of bacon in this weeks recipes, I may leave it out... "accidentally" of course!
