‘Tis the season to bring out the snuggies and electric blankets (and if you’re a bit extra, you’d be slipping into a sleeping bag onesie). No one wants to get out the sanctuary of their toasty bed to make even a simple toastie. So what are you going to do for dinner? Lucky for you, we’ve got 3 super easy and healthy recipes to heat you up this winter.

These recipes have been portioned for 2 servings, so you can share your meal with a loved one or take the leftovers to work the next day!

Chicken & prawn paella

1. Chicken and Prawn Paella

Arriba! Never been to Spain or Latin America? Neither have I. But that shouldn’t stop you from flirting with the flavours of España. With this recipe, you might not be able to re-create the best Paella outside Spain like Simply Spanish at South Melbourne Market, but it’ll be close enough! All the spices required will probably already be in your pantry. This is an easy dish to prepare and toss together.

Chicken Katsu

2. Chicken Katsu (can be vegan friendly)

If you were one of the lucky few that snatched up a cheap flight to Japan and are missing the clean cuisine, this one’s for you. This dish can be completed in about 35 minutes. For our vegan and vegetarian friends, adjusting this recipe is fairly simple. Swap out the worcestershire sauce for a vegan version. Substitute the chicken and egg for a simple and delicious eggplant rendition. If you’re a meat eater, don’t fret – the eggplant katsu isn’t only for vegans!

Eggplant Katsu (vegan friendly)

Slice a narrow eggplant into thin rounds and liberally sprinkle each side with salt. Leave for 15 minutes then rinse and place on a paper towel to absorb excess moisture. Leave to dry for another 10 minutes.

Instead of using egg and water in step 3, mix ½ cup almond milk and 1 tsp cornstarch. Continue the recipe as normal.

Thai Green Curry

3. Thai Green Curry

Let’s head on over to one of our Thai favourites. If this doesn’t warm you up with winter, nothing will. You can easily recreate this classic take away meal at home. While the ingredients may be more complex, the preparation is still reasonably straight-forward and can be followed by the (many) novices amongst us. Rich in flavour, this feast should satisfy your hunger.
