Vegan Potato Salad - Czech Style

As we move towards the Summer Holidays I plan to highlight some delicious, affordable and easy to cook picnic and BBQ recipes. This is part three from a series of vegan picnic ideas from

Part four is this interesting Czech style Vegan potato salad, so if you want to cook something that is part of an award-winning restaurant's menu, now is your chance! When Stem and Glory first opened the doors to their first restaurant, they had a Czech Chef. Soon after they were introduced to this recipe and it has become a staple item since. If you want to add an interesting twist to your normal potato salad, then look no further. Plus a bonus, it is vegan too.


Simple summer prawns recipe

Simple summer prawns recipe for one

So, with the kids off to their Mum's for a few days, it was time for this dad to let his hair down. Sadly not this week though. Work, housework and other stuff to catch up on…… I knew before I left for work, that I was going to be late home, so rummaged through the freezer and stumbled on some prawns I brought when on a yellow sticker at the supermarket, so got them out to defrost and trotted off to work. Simple summer prawns it was going to be.


Smoked Salmon Pasta

Smoked Salmon Pasta

I saw something similar to this smoked salmon pasta on TV earlier in the year, so when I saw a half-side of salmon in the yellow sticker section for £3.78, I thought I would try my take on it.

It is another really easy recipe and is perfect for a mid-week meal as it takes less than 15 minutes from start to finish.


Sticky Pork Wraps

Sticky Pork Lettuce Wraps

Another quick and easy meal from the BBC Good Food Magazine. This would make a great lunch, or as part of a dinner with other bits perhaps. I had everything for this dish except the lettuce, so really cheap for me. However, all in you shouldn’t be paying much more than £4 for this meal.
