Cooking Challenge

We love a challenge here at Beyond Limits, so during lockdown, we challenged people to come up with as many creative recipes as they could, using only basic ingredients.  The idea was that, not only would it bring out  their creativity, but it would show that you can eat lots of different and delicious meals whilst still sticking to a budget.  The ideas people came up with were excellent and we just wanted to share a few here. Just click on the image of a dish to see the recipe. There are lots more in the files section on our Facebook page.

Sausage,   Asparagus and Broccoli Quiche Frittata 

A slightly healthier alternative to the usual cream filled quiches surrounded by buttery pastry.  Also a great way to get veg into the kids if they're sometimes a bit fussy.


Chicken Casserole

A traditional comfort food dish, enough to warm you up on the coldest winter night. So easy to throw together, and can be frozen if you make a big batch.

Chocolate and Strawberry Cheesecake

Don't be scared of cheesecake.  This easy recipe will create a delicious dessert for everyone to enjoy, and you can use various fruits.  I recommend raspberries, they go beautifully with chocolate. (There is no method for this one as Facebook gremlins deleted it before I could save it, but I will find it.)

Roasted Chickpeas

An alternative tasty snack to Peanuts, quick, easy and quite healthy.  Also Veggie!  Chickpeas are a great source of protein, and better still they are really cheap to buy.

Sardine and Pea Rice

Kind of a cross between Risotto and Paella, and a great way to use up any leftover fish and veg.  Would work with lots of proteins, not just sardines.

Chocolate Yoghurt Cups

Who doesn't love a chocolate dessert?  The outer cups in this instance were pre made, but they would be really easy to recreate just using melted chocolate.  And you could use any flavour for the filling, it doesn't have to be exactly the same as this one.
