5 delightfully healthy cheese recipes!

It’s not always easy eating healthily, especially when temptations are around every corner and cravings strike! But comfort food doesn’t always have to be heavy on the bad stuff! We’ve chosen five of our favourite healthy recipes ready to keep you cosy for when the weather gets cooler! And guess what? They’re all with cheese!

Mexican Stuffed Peppers

This recipe from Healthy Seasonal Recipes is all about lowering carb intake whilst maintaining maximum comfort! The Mexican chili is the perfect ingredient for a mid-week meal, whilst the bell peppers are not only a nutritious alternative to carby pasta or potato, but look super-cool as inventive bowls for the meat mixture! 4oz of sharp cheddar cheese holds the dish together, giving it that baked consistency and that on-plate appeal!

Spinach, Sun-Dried Tomato & Goat Cheese Sweet Potatoes

These gorgeous looking stuffed potatoes make for a quick, comforting and easy meal, without compromising taste or presentation – dinner party worthy, right?! Sweet potatoes not only have more taste than regular potatoes, but are packed with vitamin C, maintain quadruple your daily requirement of vitamin A, more fibre and fewer calories than white potatoes – not to mention they’re beautiful in color! The spinach and sundried tomato add in further gorgeous tones to the dish, whilst being part of your 5-a-day. Don’t forget to sprinkle chunks of goat cheese, packed with calcium and protein to help create a balanced meal! We’ve loving this recipe, courtesy of My Diary Of Us.

‘No Pasta’ Three Cheese Zucchini Lasagna

Lasagna doesn’t always have to be packed with pasta; this recipe from White On Rice Couple uses layers of tasty zucchini! As such a versatile vegetable, zucchini can be thinly sliced lengthways and laid in a criss-cross pattern to look even better than pasta sheets! Adding grated cheddar, gouda and jack gives this dish its comfort food title, providing that crispy, cheesy top lasagnas are famed for. Tuck in!

Cauliflower Pizza

Once you’ve learned how to make a pizza base out of cauliflower, pizza doesn’t have to be as bad as you think! Fresh tomatoes provide a healthier alternative to sugary purees, whilst adding parmesan and oregano give it that fresh, gourmet look; check out this recipe from Our Best Bites! Don’t forget a little mozzarella, though! Pizza isn’t pizza without it!

Pea Parmesan Risotto

Nothing screams comfort food more than risotto! Risotto rice is known for being really filling, so even the smallest amount can keep you full for hours! This Pea Parmesan Risotto from Nutmeg Nanny is full of fresh lemon zest and sweet spring peas, not to forget plenty of parmesan for that sharp flavor! Enjoy cuddled up in an armchair on a cold evening for it to work its full magic!
