This simple little recipe is delicious for lunch or dinner and can be made with very little kitchen equipment. In fact just a pan or a sandwich press is all you will need, and basic things like a knife, plate and spoon but if you don’t have those I’m guessing you’re not big on cooking and probably aren’t even reading this. Good chat.
How good does this look? What if I told you that it was healthy enough to eat for breakfast – a main meal – and tasty enough to enjoy as a treat? What if I said it would count towards your veg servings for the day? Yep. And it has no avocado in it, and the texture’s a bit like mousse/ a bit like pudding and can be frozen into paddle pop type things. Oh yeah, it’s vegan, gluten free and refined sugar free too.

This baby packs a flavour punch + is filled with loads of veg to help you get your daily fix. You could make it with any noodles you have on hand and it will work out just fine. I know I’ve posted a few noodle based recipes lately but that’s because they’re so good for this warm weather we’ve been having, a 30 degree spring days (celsius for you international peeps) is crazy for Melbourne, so maybe I’ve gone a little crazy for cold salads too. Just maybe.
Nutritious, pretty and yummy breakfasts like this don’t need to be time consuming. I love a breakfast that I can prepare before going to bed and then have it ready to go in the morning when time is more important to me. I want to be the kind of person that can get up really early and exercise, make a delicious breakfast and get to work in time… but I’m not! I find getting up earlier than I have to really hard and my mornings always feel really busy. I tend to eat breakfast at work, so grab and go breakfasts like this are an excellent option.
Hello summer heat. When the days start at totally unnatural temperatures and you still want your morning coffee these are the tasty solution. You need a really good quality almond milk for this recipe as anything too thin won’t have the same flavour or effect. You can sweeten the almond milk with a date or maple syrup – or leave it unweetened and let the bitterness of the coffee break through. If you wouldn’t normally sweeten your coffee then don’t sweeten this!
These ideas will help even the biggest meat eater happily include more vegetables, easily, every day. I am not vegan or vegetarian but there are many reasons why I try to include as many vegetables as I can in my diet. I was once a fussy eater, and there have been plenty of vegetables that I claimed to hate over the years. But now I have legitimate cravings for vegetables… seriously (obviously amongst the chocolate ones). Sometimes I don’t know who I am anymore…
This makes for a fantastic grab and go, pre prepped for your morning rush breakfast solution. Yes salad is your breakfast solution. Because it’s acceptable to eat salad at all other times of the day so why not breakfast? I know fruit salad is a breakfast staple but I don’t really like fruit salad. It makes me think of nasty hotel breakfast buffets or syrupy concoctions. This is a savoury salad, full of greens and they typical things you might eat for breakfast – just in a salad.
The first time I bit into these charred and glossy spears I swore, with pure joy. And then I went and boiled an egg because I thought that would be amazing with them and called it lunch. I ate all the asparagus (whoops, that’s apparently not a great idea…). Then I licked the bowl. These are seriously that good. And I do realise I’m talking about asparagus.
This tastes like a banana cream pie, but better, because it has coconut and different textures and the creamy banana bit tastes and feels (in your mouth obv, don’t go running your fingers through it you weirdo) like mousse. And yes, it’s just all kinds of crazy good. I want to eat this for breakfast every day. For ever. Until I’ve od’d on banana and I’m like, ew get that away from me (won’t happen, no way). Can you tell I’m a little bit excited about this one?
This salad makes a delicious dinner when the weather gets warm and an easy lunch. You can make it the day ahead and take it to work. As you’ll see it’s seriously simple to make, simple food is where it’s at for week day lunches.
