caramelised onion, fetta & ćevapčići tart

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

I eat a lot of onion. I add brown onion to most savoury cooked dishes and I grow (an abundance of) green onions in my vege patch which are a great, subtle raw addition to all my salads. In addition to the [...]

guacamole pizza

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

There's a lot of momentum building amongst nutrition/health enthusiasts about the health benefits of eating foods rich in healthy fats - my favourite and I think the most versatile being the avocado. It's true - avocados are high in fat, but in particular they [...]

garlic chilli sardines with pinenuts, capers & cranberries

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

Sardines are a controversial food divider. Generally people either really love them, or really don't. I'm not 100% sure but I suspect there might be some correlation to those who have fed a cat before, and those who perhaps have [...]

seedy, nutty ‘no-knead’ bread

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

The 'easy' food that I miss the most since dodging the gluten and grains is bread. I once heard someone say that there’s no food they can think of that isn't improved when served between 2 slices of bread; and I tend [...]

quinoa fried ‘rice’

2019-05-26T03:35:01+00:00

Just as you might use left-over rice, this is a tasty, quick and healthy way to use up left-over quinoa. Absolutely no need to be precise with these ingredients / quantities - like fried rice you can throw in anything [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Riins’ paella

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

I'm sure there are many theories about the origins of Paella but I recently watched a TV show that explained Paella's humble beginnings in the Valencia region in Eastern Spain. Originally a farmers' food, it was cooked by the field workers [...]

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 [...]
