HEALTHY RECIPE IDEAS | Watermelon, Creamed Feta & Pomegranate Salad

8th October 2019

HEALTHY RECIPE IDEAS

Watermelon Salad

 

Fun fact. I used to be married to a chef. My role when we entertained was to help with presentation. I wasn’t much of a sous chef, but I did pick up a few tips along the way. Luckily this is a simple salad that needs no qualifications to create! It tastes amazing and looks good too! I think i’ll be recreating for a few dinner parties in the future. Keeping it real though, this week, I’ve made it in a batch to have for my dinner this week with some chicken and flatbreads.

This will serve 4/5 people. Just scale up or down depending how many you’re cooking for. For three meals this week I used 100g of feta and 100g cream cheese.

Ingredients:

  • 200g feta
  • 200g cream cheese (I used Philadelphia light)
  • 15/20 cherry tomatoes (different types if you can)
  • 1 handful of mint
  • 1/4 watermelon
  • 3 handfuls of rocket/spinach
  • Pepper to taste
  • Balsamic glaze

 

Method:

  • Crumble feta into bowl and add the cream cheese. Mix together and then add to a food processor. Whizz it up really well until it’s light and fluffy. Add some pepper to taste. Set aside.
  • Chop cherry tomatoes into halves. Also cut watermelon into bitesize chunks. Mix together in a bowl with the handful of mint.
  • Grab plates and place a handful of rocket/spinach on each. Add tomatoes and watermelon mix. Spoon some of the creamed feta mixture into the middle of each of the plates.
  • Sprinkle a handful of pomegranate seeds to each and finish off with a squeeze of balsamic glaze.
  • Eat and marvel at how tasty, yet simple this dish is.

 

Other things you could do with creamed feta

  • Spread on some toasted ciabatta bread and serve with fresh/roasted tomatoes
  • Use in flatbreads with chicken
  • Put on crackers with some grapes and quince jelly
  • Eat straight out of bowl.

Children’s Wellbeing | Kids these days – they’ve got it made – or have they?

I’m a primary school teacher and I’m a mum to a beautiful, bright and bubbly six-year-old. I witness the ups and downs of wellbeing in children every day. Every parent faces the same dilemma – how to ensure the wellbeing of our children – particularly from a mental health perspective in a world that is more pressured than ever in more ways than one.

Baby Loss Awareness Week | Pregnancy After Loss

Sadly, most of my experience of pregnancy has been strongly associated with grief and loss. I have experienced three pregnancies and yet I only have one daughter who I can physically cherish. For me, pregnancy has become a worrying, anxious time with excitement constantly tainted with fear.
