Struggling to get your five-a-day? Bored of the same old? How about these Tropical Papaya Boats from Minimalist Baker to make getting your daily nutrients more exciting? Scoop out the seeds and you’re left with with a refreshing fruit bowl which you can use to fill up with whatever you wish! Fill it with seeds, nuts and yogurt for a healthy breakfast or with ice-cream and fruit for an impressive dessert! If you’re feeling less adventurous or can’t get hold of Papaya, there’s plenty of other large fruits you could use – check out these watermelon salad bowls.
When you think of tacos, you don’t usually think of tuna, so this recipe for Tuna Tacos (She Eats) makes for a unique way to enjoy fish. The colourful variety of ingredients means these tacos are gorgeous to look at, making them a must for impressing your dinner party guests! Change around with fillings to make your perfect taco! You could also use the same fillings in burritos, enchiladas or fajitas, mix it up!
You can’t get much more vibrant than pea green, making peas the perfect ingredient for bright, beautiful foods! These Pea and Feta Crostini by Nectar make for a unique way to eat peas rather than in your traditional dinner or fish and chips. The feta provides a mediterranean touch meaning that these would look great at an al fresco summer lunch!
