At Macclesfield Performance we are always on the lookout for healthy and tasty new recipes that can be made by anyone and enjoyed by everyone. There are so many wonderful things to eat when you are trying to eat a healthier, more natural and nutritious diet but sometimes its easy to get confused by what to choose. So we thought it’d be nice if every now and then we share some of our favourites for you to try.
SCROLL DOWN FOR OUR FIRST RECIPE
We are kick starting this concept with our first “tried and tested” recipe – Thai Chicken & Sweet Potato Soup.
This delicious recipe was found on the BBC Good Food website and after giving it a few minor DS style adaptations, it has fast become a favourite of ours.
1 tsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 red chilli, deseeded and chopped (Use the seeds if you like it extra spicy)
2cm chunk root ginger, chopped
1 stalk lemongrass, bashed
1 x 25g pack coriander, leaves and stalks chopped separately
2 tbsp red Thai curry paste
750ml chicken stock (2-3 stock cubes)
160ml coconut milk
500g sweet potatoes, peeled and evenly chopped
2 skinless chicken breasts, sliced
Juice of a lime
½ tsp fish sauce
Add the garlic, chilli, ginger, lemongrass, coriander and curry paste to the heated oil and cook, stirring continuously for 2 minutes.
Add the lime juice and fish sauce and serve decorated with a few extra coriander leaves. You could easily keep the chicken out if you are vegetarian and enjoy the delicate taste of Thai, meat free, with an added alternative if you wish.
