Meatless: 5 recipes with 5 ingredients

1. Chicken And Pesto Buckwheat Risotto

Chicken And Pesto Buckwheat Risotto

Swap out the chicken with added vegetables to really fill out this risotto. As this is a pesto based risotto you may want to add some sweet potato, chickpeas and even roasted carrots!

2. Steak with Beetroot, Walnut & Feta Salad

5 Ingredient Steak with Beetroot, Walnut & Feta Salad

Replace the lean beef in this salad with some barbecued tempeh! 100 grams of tempeh contains 19 grams of protein, so you can rest assured you won’t be hangry afterwards.
