    Belinda Jeffrey's Weekly Meal Plan

    Belinda Jeffrey enjoys a queen-like status in thousands of kitchens around the country. Her status is almost surprising given that her easy-going approach to food makes cooking with her best-selling cookbooks feel more like cooking with a dear friend than a queen. In her own words:

    “My recipes are easy. They’re for the food I like to eat. Simple, fresh, full of flavour, and just a bit different. You certainly don’t need any great cooking skills for them, you just need to like food and like eating – just like me. The rest is simple” 

    Belinda’s meal plan is all about these 3 things: simplicity, flavour and something a little different. So sit back, create a shopping list and enjoy, because all the hard work planning a waste-free week has been done for you.

    Monday

    Haloumi

    Crisp haloumi with roasted pumpkin and sweet red pepper salad

    This vibrant salad is quite substantial and satisfying, needing only a loaf of good bread to mop up the dressing.

    Tuesday

    Coconut chicken

    Coconut chicken with spicy cucumber ribbons

    The marinade for this scrumptious dish only takes a few minutes to make, then all you need do is pop the chicken into it the night before you need it.

    Wednesday

    spice coated flathead

    Spice-coated flathead fillets

    Flathead is such a lovely eating fish - sweet, white, moist, and not at all ‘fishy’. This is terrific served with mashed potatoes and a simple green salad.

    Thursday

    Salt baked potatoes

    Salt-baked potatoes with guacamole

    These simply-cooked potatoes have become my summer holiday staple as they need little effort to make and taste terrific.

    Friday

    Tun Rice Salad

    Crunchy, healthy tuna, rice, dill and egg salad

    This refreshing, energy-boosting salad is packed with flavour and perfect for a warm night. I’m happy to eat it just as is, but occasionally I’ll tear up rocket leaves to mix through it, along with slices of avocado.
