This muesli is light, crunchy and great for anyone who wants something for breakfast that is a little lower in fat and sugar than muesli loaded with nuts and dried fruit. It’s also a great muesli if you can’t eat nuts or dried fruit which sums up my new housemate and I perfectly. Instead of nuts the crunch comes from toasted seeds, coconut and puffed grains, the flavours are warm and lightly spiced and served with some fresh fruit (hey berries, so glad you’re fructose content is so friendly to me) and yoghurt/milk it makes for a quick and easy breakfast.
Roast chicken has to be one of my favourite comfort foods. And it’s also super economical to make. Even if there’s just two of you a roast chicken is a cheap and delicious way to eat meat because you can use every little part of it. This particular recipe makes use of the chicken roasting juices to cook broccoli – it basically transforms the broccoli into a glazed umami rich side that you’ll be having future cravings for.
This week’s post is all about entertainment, specifically what I’m watching (and eating) when I’m staying in this week and where I’ve been going when eating out. As much as I love to cook, I also love to eat other people’s food. Whether it be at a friends place or at restaurant there’s something fabulous about someone else cooking for you.
These waffles scream Easter brunch, which was my vibe when the idea popped into my head. You know how you get some ideas and you’re like ‘Yes – that will be amazing!’. Then you give it a shot and it’s an unmitigated disaster? These were the exact opposite to that. They turned out exactly as I wanted them to. Like the contents of my imagination had magically fallen onto a plate and then into my mouth. Well I helped it into my mouth but the rest, the rest was magic.
Poke. Not the thing you used to do on Facebook. The Hawaiian fish salad that can be combined with all sorts of other things to make a sort of deconstructed sushi bowl. This is my rather free interpretation of it. It has honestly become one of my favourite things to eat, easy, filling and nourishing PLUS it can be endlessly varied to suit your tastes and mood. Perfect.
This recipe is a vegetarian version of this delightful little number. Thus the similar looking dish/sounding recipe title. I am clearly very creative. But the caramelised mushrooms with their spicy undertones are the perfect replacement for the earlier recipe’s crispy, fragrant mince.
These are so fresh and tasty. The perfect thing for a light summer dinner and super perfect for taking to work. If you do that be prepared to sit at your desk dreaming about lunch for a god period of the morning. The fragrant smell of the salad will get you all excited before you even start on the rolling part.
This Friday I thought I would share some of my favourite food spots, the online ideas and recipes type food spots. As much as I will always adore books of all kinds, especially cookbooks, I also love using food blogs for recipes, it’s a big part of why I ended up writing my own. There are a few different blogs I visit for different types of food, some healthy some a little more indulgent.
Well that’s a mouthful of a title. And it’s the title of a pretty amazing brownie. Fudgy on the inside with a crisp exterior and full of… vegetables. Yeah you read that last sentence correctly. It’s main ingredient is zucchini and it’s good.
I live in a household of two. Two people can’t eat a whole roast chicken in one sitting. I mean, we have friends over frequently but sometimes I want a roast and when there is only two of you you’re going to have leftovers. And leftovers are what these noodles are all about. Leftovers and flavour! Because there’s no point in trying not to waste things if it’s not going to taste good.
