Lemon Basil Orzo, Roasted Cauliflower, Sauteed Broccoli and Snap Peas, and Salmon

I made this whole meal in 20 minutes. And it was amazing. Start by chopping all of the veg and preheating the oven to medium high. Spray the cauliflower with olive oil spray, sprinkle with salt and roast on a baking pan for 20 minutes or so, giving it a shake once or twice.

Meanwhile, boil the orzo in a pot of boiling water. With 4 minutes left on the timer, add a large handful of frozen peas. Add one additional minute to the cook time as the peas will temporarily stop the boiling. When done, squeeze the juice of a half or whole lemon, sprinkle with salt, and add some torn basil leaves.

While the orzo is cooking, sautee the broccoli and snap peas in a little olive oil and garlic. Squeeze a bit of lemon juice and sprinkle with salt. Cook until still crunchy but bright green and set aside. In the same pan, heat a little more olive oil and pay fry the salmon. Again, season with salt and lemon juice.

I microwaved the greens for 30 seconds before serving to get them hot again.

For dessert, I tried yoo moo strawbswirlmoo frozen yogurt. I’m one of those crazy people who doesn’t really like ice cream, but I was in the mood for something sweet and I had bought a couple of these at Sainsbury’s recently because I liked the packaging. The tubs feel like they are empty – the frozen yogurt is light as air. It has a mellow, mild taste, which I liked – no fake overly-strawberry taste. The consistency was really nice too: fluffy and light, with dried strawberry pieces on top for texture. I liked this a lot and can’t wait until Sainsbury’s start stocking the other flavours too!
