Cheat Vegetarian Curry


Me recent posts prove how lazy I am getting as a result of excessive exam revision :P

At this stage in the year I need recipes which won’t waste my precious revision time and ones which will keep my tummy full and happy. So here it is, my cheat vegetarian curry, if it takes you longer than 20 minutes to make, I will just assume you were trying to prove me wrong :P

  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1/2 a courgette
  • 1/2 tinned tomatoes
  • 6 mushrooms
  • 1 cup full of spinach leaves
  • 1tbs of Jalfrezi Curry Paste
  • Salt, pepper, chilli for seasoning
  • 1 tsp olive oil

Start by chopping up the onion, mushrooms and courgette into whatever pieces you like, I don’t make mine neat or uniform. Fry in a little bit of olive oil until slightly browned and softened. Add tinned tomatoes and curry paste and allow to cook on a small heat for 5 minutes. Just before taking off the heat add the chopped spinach leaves and mix in until wilted, it should not take any longer than 30 seconds. Season to taste, I think the spicier, the more authentic it seems :P

That is it! Serve with some rice and tuck in! :D


Calories – 280 for the whole dish. Remember to add the calories of the rice or whatever you are enjoying my cheat curry with.

By the way, writing all the halve quantities in the ingredients list made me realise that I never mentioned that I usually make my recipes on a 1 person serving basis. If I am making a bigger portion I will point out how many servings it contains. Sorry, my OCD made me point that out :P

BRIT Breakfast


Keeping in with the spirit of last night’s BRIT Awards…

The morning after the BRIT Awards is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a full English. As you may have noticed, I use pretty much any opportunity to eat something other than my everyday foods, and even the BRIT’s will do :D

So my cheat Vegetarian breakfast comes to only 407 kcal, which is more than my usual breakfast, but it is perfect for a brunch treat. The trick here is to use these babies:


To me they taste even better than regular sausages, and I love the fact that I am sure there’s no hidden nasty’s (horse meat and others).

So here is how to work those calories:

1 large fried egg – 92 kcal

100g of Heinz baked beans – 79 kcal

2 average fried mushrooms – 88 kcal

1 piece of toast with butter – 78 kcal

1 Quorn sausage – 65 kcal

I will give you the lovely fried cherry tomatoes calorie-free. Just enjoy them ;)

Give it a try :D
