Posted 4 Mar 2020.

Is it time to mix up your dinners? Our LiveLighter team have put together seven dinners from around the world to get your taste buds tingling - try them out over the next week.

To get you inspired, we've done a round-up of our favourite new recipes from across the globe. From Mexico to Morocco, why not visit a different country each night this week?

1. Soft shell fish tacos

Soft Shell Fish Tacos

On the table in under 30 minutes, these soft shell tacos are loaded with flavour. The smoky taste of Chipotle sauce adds a touch of spice to this Mexican favourite.

2. Japanese sesame tuna rice bowl

Japanese Sesame Tuna Rice Bowl

These Japanese poke bowls are quick to prepare and packed full of fresh ingredients. Pro-tip: toast sesame seeds in a dry non-stick pan until golden for extra flavour.

3. Cheese and spinach gozleme

Cheese and Spinach Gozleme

Gozleme is a traditional Turkish flatbread stuffed with various toppings such as minced beef and onion, spinach and feta or potato and chives. We love this 5-ingredient version featuring red onions, frozen spinach and feta - yum!

4. Satay chicken

A healthy twist on an Indonesian favourite. This creamy satay delivers 3 serves of veg in every portion!

5. Cheat's seafood paella

Our cheat's version of the classic Spanish paella swaps rice for risoni. Impress your guests at your next dinner party with this one-pot wonder.

6. Sweet potato gnocchi

Sweet potato gnocchi

This tasty sweet potato gnocchi is a favourite in the LiveLighter team. While traditional Italian gnocchi is made with regular potatoes, we think you'll love this colourful twist.

7. Moroccan baked eggplant

Moroccan baked eggplant

Perfect for meat-free Mondays, these stuffed eggplants are bursting with flavour. Not a fan of eggplant? You can easily sub in hollowed-out zucchinis or pumpkin in place of the eggplant.
