Shelley's Recipes

In the Purchon household we love to eat healthily and we’re always trying new things, but even our children have their limits. In my monthly blog, I teach you how to cook the dishes which we and our children most enjoy.

Chicken Korma

They say that korma is the curry for people who hate curries – it’s rich and sweet and delicious, but of course it’s loaded with fat. Try cooking this version, made with coconut and mint, and you’ll never look back.

Minestrone soup

Once you’ve started making soups, you can’t go back to eating them from tins. These days I even turn my nose up at cartons, because those soups just don’t taste as fresh as the ones I can knock up at home. This minestrone is packed full of vegetables and is my all time favourite.
