5 nourishing midweek meals - ready in under 25 minutes!

Preparing tasty, nourishing food during the working week can be a real drag sometimes. You start the week out well, but by the time Wednesday comes around, you find yourself tempted by the takeaway menu and forking out for something that’s more convenient than nourishing.


Make life easier with these delicious dinners – from chopping board to hungry bellies in 25 minutes or less.

  1. Baked Salmon and Broccoli Rice

You’ve heard of courgetti spaghetti – but how about broccoli rice? It’s the perfect lower carb sidekick for a lemony baked salmon fillet.

Here’s how: Preheat the oven to 180°C fan. Drizzle the salmon with Pura liquid coconut oil and a squeeze of lemon, and bake for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, whizz up some broccoli in a food processor until it resembles a crumbly cous cous. Five minutes before the salmon is ready, steam the broccoli, and voilà!

  1. Beetroot, Orange and Feta Salad with Spiced Chickpeas and Almonds

We’re pretty pleased with this one – a revved-up rainbow of colours, textures and flavours that’s good to go in bang on 20 minutes!

Sweet orange and tangy feta bring the earthy beets to life, while the almonds bring a little extra crunch to the party. Warm, smoky, paprika chickpeas cooked in Pura liquid coconut oil make this vibrant salad a filling summer dinner you’ll want to rush home for. Check out the recipe here. 

  1. Hot ‘n’ Spicy Thai Style Pork Wraps

Fancy Thai food tonight? Instead of your usual green chicken curry, why not try these little lettuce parcels of sweet and salty pork?

Stir fry onion and garlic in Pura liquid coconut oil, then add pork mince and sizzle for 10 minutes. Add fish sauce, soy sauce, lime juice and chopped chillies to taste, and simmer a minute longer. Fill each lettuce leaf with a dollop of the spicy mixture, and wrap carefully. Service with a sprinkling of fresh mint and coriander.

  1. Mexican Style Eggs on Sourdough with Chilli and Coriander Salsa

Homemade salsa on a Tuesday? Are you crazy?! This amazing breakfast-for-dinner will be ready in 17 minutes flat. All it takes is a little sourdough-charring, salsa-mixing, egg-beating and chorizo-sizzling. Get all the deets here. We’ll time you.

  1. Avocado Chocolate Mousse

OK fine, this one isn’t technically a proper dinner, but we couldn’t leave you without a sweet treat to finish!

To your blender, add: one ripe avocado, one chopped frozen banana, and a couple of tablespoons each of cocoa powder, cinnamon and honey. Feeling extra spicy? Add a dash of chilli powder. Blend until creamy and adjust flavours to suit yourself. Spoon into teeny shot glasses and refrigerate (remember to save one for us!).
