Many of you may be readers of the Healthy Food Guide magazine which is published in both the UK and Australia.

They do a fantastic series of recipes called ‘5pm panic’ which, as you can imagine, are designed to pick up a few ingredients after work and prepare a relatively quick meal.  If you are a subscriber these recipes are frequently emailed, but they are also freely available on their website.

This is a quick run down of my take on the delicious vegetarian broccoli with chilli pesto pasta recipe that also gives you two of your ‘5 a day’ veggies.  You just need to change the pasta to make it a gluten free 5pm panic!  The original recipe is under 350 calories per serve.

Below shows some of the ingredients ready to prepare the pesto, just for one serve (adapted from four serves).  You will need a food processor to blitz them into a pesto.

The links provide the recipe, with some minor differences between the UK version and the Australian version.

The ingredients are:

  • spagehetti or pasta of your choice
  • broccolini, rocket & tomato
  • home made pesto (red chill, cashews, garlic, coriander, lemon)

The photo below is the final product with a generous topping of rocket.  If you like chilli, you will love this gluten free 5pm panic!
