Recipe share: one pot wonders and family faves as recommended by you

Welcome to the #diaryofayogamummyrecipeshare. One pot wonders and family faves as recommended by you.

Now I love food and I love cooking!

Food for me is about cooking yummy nourishing food that doesn’t take too long.

Cooking used to be relaxing for me as I would often take my time preparing and making meals. I think this came from my Dad. I remember as a child him coming how from work, getting changed and then cooking.

Cooking was his form of relaxation. After a hectic day at work, he found cooking to be a pleasure rather than a chore. It relaxed him, made him happy. For him, food and cooking gave him wellness for his mind, his body and his family (he always made delicious food and still does!).

Alas I am always in a rush.  Like most people nowadays  I don’t seem to have as much time to spend on cooking for relaxation. I also seem to lack inspiration when it comes to cooking meals! I stick to the same tried and tested recipes.

So, I thought I would start a recipe share. One pot wonders and family faves as recommended by you.

Straightforward recipes that you may not have thought of cooking but are food for wellness, for you and for your family.  Anything goes when it comes to cooking doesn’t it? You just need that bit of inspiration.

Recipe share #1

Our first recipe share comes courtesy of Claire Houston.

Her family fave is Chorizo and Chickpea stew:


  • 1 diced onion
  • 1 chorizo ring
  • 1 red pepper, chopped (optional) 1
  • tin of chickpeas
  • 1 carton of passata


  • Fry onion and chorizo.
  • Add pepper, chickpeas and passata.
  • Simmer for twenty mins.
  • Serve with cous cous (or pasta for those little people who won’t eat cous cous!)

Simple, easy and tasty (I’ve made this!). This recipe is great when you want a warm tasty meal to heat you up on a  cold snowy day.

Enjoy 😉

A bit about Claire:

‘I’m a busy mum of three generally good eaters (as long as there’s pasta and cheese involved!). With a school age child, juggling after school clubs, homework and cooking the tea is quite a challenge especially as my crowd get hangry pretty quickly. I often plan to cook during the day but that never happens – chasing after my two preschool children whilst running my own baby and child massage business keeps me pretty busy during the day. I’d love to make lasagnes and chicken pies for tea but I simply don’t have the time – or the energy to deal with all that washing up. So I tend to opt for dishes with a few ingredients and limited preparation time.’

Claire also runs her own baby massage classes. To find out more check out the links below.
