Recipes

Jennifer along with her chefs and nutritional experts have spent time creating some loved dishes here at Balance Box. Here are some below that you can try yourself at home.

Smoked Mackerel Salad

Smoked mackerel fillets are a favourite in my house when I’m looking for something even quicker and easier than usual to have for lunch or supper!  They really are the ultimate convenience food:  already cooked for you, and packed full of essential fats and omega 3s.  This substantial salad always gets the thumbs up.

Chilli Creamed Corn

Traditionally this recipe calls for mountains of butter and cheese.  Balance Box has created a version which packs as much of a taste punch, but is kinder to your health.

Turmeric Chicken with Spicy Tomato Aubergine

Our Founder, Jennifer Irvine got this recipe inspiration from her dad, she says ” My Dad is a wonderful chef and this is one of my favourite recipes that he cooks for us. He doesn’t normally wear gloves to make it, so is often found with yellow stained hands – Not a good look! I would suggest wearing gloves.”
