Quinoa salads, roast pumpkin salad or stir fry without noodles or rice

Quiche & salad - I love using asparagus and mushrooms - you could do it with or without a shortcrust base.


Salads - bulk up with beans, cheese etc

Pan fried haloumi with salad or vegetables

 Also can bulk up salads with boiled eggs for protein
