spicy zesty kale chips

2019-05-19T04:57:09+00:00

As an easily distracted person, I usually have many 'in-progress' things on the go which take ages to get finished because other things keep catching my attention. A few weeks ago I moved from Sydney to Melbourne, and I now [...]

slow oven-roasted cherry tomatoes

2019-05-16T10:30:02+00:00

When it comes to food, I'm pretty easily impressed. I'm especially fascinated by how flavours can evolve dramatically over time with only a little effort. A perfect example is what happens when you leave tomatoes, garlic and a little olive [...]

salsa verde (green sauce)

2019-05-19T04:57:10+00:00

Flavour-wise, salsa verde is like pesto on steroids. A classic, rustic, Italian sauce usually served cold, I find it's usually pretty interchangeable with pesto, and often a preferable 'lighter' alternative as it's free from parmesan. Like pesto, it keeps well in a [...]

toasted coconut & kale with scrammy eggs

2019-05-16T10:31:21+00:00

To give credit where credit's due, this recipe was inspired by the boys from Bondi on an early episode of the 2013 My Kitchen Rules TV series, who have since climbed great heights in Australia's paleo world. They had planned to serve a [...]

classic French lentils

2019-05-19T04:57:10+00:00

There's no real story to this recipe... I was given some French du puy lentils (green lentils) in a hamper for Xmas and needed a bed for a couple of lovely plump snapper fillets left over from cooking snapper pies [...]

cauliflower ‘rice’

2019-05-19T04:57:10+00:00

My favourite veges are those I like the taste of raw. Cauliflower isn't one of my favourite vegetables. But due to its mind 'nothingy' taste, it's great to carry other flavours, and in this recipe, for its 'rice-like' texture when [...]

pulled pork with spicy coleslaw

2019-05-19T04:57:10+00:00

One of my earliest memories of family dinners is of pork chops with mustard and veges. I think we used to have chops quite regularly (thanks Mum!) and I remember I loved them - perhaps it was because it was [...]

ricotta fritters with rich tomato sauce & fresh zucchini salad

2019-05-19T04:57:10+00:00

This quick and easy vegetarian lunch/dinner was adapted from Jamie Oliver's 15 minute meals. I love Jamie Oliver, think his 30 minutes meals are awesome and more recently his 15 minute meals - genius. Sure, it'll take you and I [...]

ajvar – roast capsicum relish

2019-05-19T04:57:10+00:00

I'm a pretty big fan of condiments. Having a bit of a restricted diet means I need to be creative with making healthy food packed with flavour. This classic Serbian dish (pronounced 'ay-va') is known as 'Serbian vegetable caviar'. I've [...]

quick & easy (no-whisk) mayor

2019-05-19T04:57:11+00:00

The formula for making mayonnaise sounds quite easy: "slowly beat oil into egg until an emulsion forms...", until you get to the desired outcome: "...where the oil molecules are uniformly dispersed in the egg and suspend there". Hmmm. I've tried [...]
