Lemons, lemons and more lemons


A lovely friend has what seems like an orchard in her backyard and gave me bags and bags of lemons the other day so I’ve been trying out loads of different recipes using them.  Added bonus that as “man flu” has been visiting the house for what seems like FOREVER the best use of them has been in a cup of hot water with the juice of 1/2 of one and a teaspoon of manuka honey.

Lemon Poppy Seed Mini Muffins for the lunch boxes – these are gluten, dairy (if you want them to be) and sugar free and actually do taste really nice

Lemon Drizzle Cake – which is free of nothing – well you’ve got have balance right?

Hummus – we go through this by the bucket load in our house and the lemon gives it a nice tang

Lemon Curd – this is a Thermomix recipe but have a look at the post for some quick fix sweet desserts

Chicken, Bean & Pasta Soup – so thick and stew like and full of goodness

Lemony Chicken, Pea & Corn Risotto  – on high rotation around here

Lemon & Herb Salmon with Soy Soba Noodles – a quick, easy and really healthy meal

Lemon & Herb Chicken with Vegetables – not such a nice photo, sorry I’m still learning, but it’s so quick & easy to make that it shouldn’t be kept off the list

Mixed Berry & Lemon Yoghurt Muffins – some more good ones for snacks or the lunch boxes

I also use lemons in my morning Green Smoothie for the extra vitamin C boost

All that from the humble lemon!
