This marinated pork fillet is tender and juicy, the corn couscous is enhanced with additional dried fruit and toasted nuts, and the steamed beans tied with chives balance the intense spices in the sauce.
Managing my high cholesterol doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy herbs and spices, lean proteins, garden fresh vegetables and discover new low GI carbs that add texture to a meal.
We are living in the country, in the southern highlands of NSW Australia, 2 hours from Sydney. This allows my partner and I to dig a simple herb garden and grow a few seasonal vegetables. Each afternoon as the evening meal draws near, I go outside and forage for the freshest seasonal offerings in my little garden, and team them with proteins from the local butchery, some 40 kms away. This means thawing the hero protein from the freezer the night before, so a little planning is required.
If you don’t have fresh herbs, substitute dried from your pantry.
