    These mouthwatering meals don’t leave carbs out completely – they’re part of a balanced dinner! What they have though is tonnes of filling proteins and fresh veggies – and no overflowing bowls of pasta in sight.

    1. Pan-Fried Beef & Quinoa Salad with Paprika Vinaigrette

    low-carb recipes
    Colourful and crunchy, this quinoa and paprika beef salad is a real zinger. If you’re not a big fan of coriander, do give it a try in this lively veggie medley – it adds the perfect finish! (Psst! If you’re not sure how to be cooking quinoa, get our simple guide here.)

    At first glance this dish might seem ordinary, but it’s anything but. The pistachio crumb is really something, and asparagus is one of our favourite veggies to feature this time of the year, both fresh and nutty in equal measure.
    This lovely Turkish pilaf is topped with marinated za’atar chicken. We’ve used chicken thigh because it has such great flavour and won’t dry out. It’s just great when paired with mint too!
    This is the kind of dish that reminds you we really do live in the lucky country. Mod Oz cuisine means that sizzling beef rump steak is at home with tasty pesto, panini and roasted vegetables. We think it’s bloody good, even if we do say so ourselves!
    The HelloFresh take on lamb roast is a winning meal with a modern twist. We’ve kept the lamb leg steaks simple to let the flavour of the quality meat shine, but we’ve added cheese and texture to the accompanying vegetables that we know you’ll love.
    Moist, succulent chicken is the perfect vessel for this creamy spinach & fetta mixture. Akin to a Chicken Kiev, only far less processed & far more delicious. Friends & family alike will love this dish if only for the sweet potato mash! This dish is classic comfort food, enjoyed from the comfort of your own home.
    We like to think this pie will baffle and delight your senses in equal measure. At first, the unexpected tahini crust on this Morrocan Pie may throw you for a loop – but when you taste it, you may find it hard to go back to bland old pastry after this nutty textured surprise.
    Did you know ras el hanout literally means ‘top of the shop’? It’s a blend of the best spices in the bazaar. Fortunately, we’ve brought the flavour to you so you don’t have to traipse around the markets yourself to make these spiced carrots. It’s just the thing for this feisty salad with harissa beef and tasty chickpeas.
    This falafel dish is a testament to the wisdom of traditional Middle Eastern cooking, with a twist. We’ve thrown in some quinoa instead of the traditional burghul and we think you’ll love it. Falafels are delicious but thirsty little creatures, so don’t be afraid to be generous with hummus and lemon.
    How terribly exciting! We love using seafood in our HelloFresh meals – it’s delicious and terrific for you. That’s why we’re overjoyed about this delectable hot smoked salmon. With creamy sweet potato and a moreish dill and parsley mayonnaise, we’ll just be quiet now and let you get on with it.
    Aside from the seasonal produce, our favourite thing about Autumn here at HelloFresh is the colours. With that in mind, why not extend the colours of Autumn into the food you eat – they don’t say eat a rainbow for nothing! Fresh pomegranate is a seasonal treat – and one you should definitely treat yourself to for a really satisfying dinner.
    Goodness, gracious, great bowls of quinoa! Oh yeah, and mushrooms. Oh, and Chinese marinated tofu. And did we mention sesame seeds and coriander? Listen, don’t worry. It’s all in this nutritious bowl, ready to be gobbled up by you.
    We love fattoush; that Middle Eastern panzanella style salad studded with crispy shards of Lebanese bread. There’s nothing quite like it. Garlicky chicken is topped off with this incredible dill and parsley mayonnaise – you won’t know which bit to eat first!
    Please, we’re asking nicely: don’t substitute lamb mince for beef in a shepherd’s pie! It’s named after sheep shepherd for a reason. If you must experiment, do as we have here and get some creamy sweet potato topping on that bad boy – the flavour combination will blow your mind! All that’s left to do then is sneak is some green veg to this warming package and ta-da! Dinner is served.
    This zesty Spanish inspired pork is so tasty you’ll be bolting back for seconds. Be sure to marinate the pork for at least 15 minutes to absorb all of that amazing flavour! With a resplendent rainbow salad of celebratory confetti, there’s no doubt that this lively dish is a real winner.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    But just imagine if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!

    Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this blog could definitely be
    one of the greatest in its field. Awesome blog!
