Let the Christmas ‘baking’ continue! So there’s probably some sort of copyright problem with me calling these Bounty balls. But they are so reminiscent of a bounty, and it used to be my favourite chocolate bar as a kid so that’s a huge compliment. These little chocolates are ridiculous easy to make and way healthier than the original.
This soup. Just, well it’s everything. If you’ve never used tortillas to thicken your soup you’ve got to do it. It’s genius as it makes it creamier without having to use cream! If a soup can be summery and still hot then this is it. It’s perfect for cities like Melbourne when you’re blessed with summer produce but there’s just as much chance of a cold 6 degree day in December as there is a 34 degree one. The toppings are out of control and the main reason for that summer vibe.
These taste just like gingerbread but they’re waaaay better for you. Why gingerbread because: It’s Christmas this month! This month! That’s so soon. I LOVE Christmas, I love the time spent with family friends, how everyone is in a good mood, Mariah Carey’s Christmas album playing on repeat (haha, no shame)… and the food.
I’m all about less cleaning up, so one pot dishes are my jam. This dish has so much flavour, great textures AND it can all be cooked in one pot. You don’t even need any bowls for prep. Just a chopping board, knife, and a dish to bake it all in. The flavours from the chicken make the lentils and barley so tasty and the apricots add just the right amount of sweetness.
In case you’ve just arrived here by chance I’ll fill you in on something important about me: I love dumplings. Dumplings are life and I love them in all their many forms. I’ve tried many vegetarian dumplings and these are definitely my favourite ones. Tis rich mushrooms with the fresh chives is just such a good combination!
Yep. It’s another cauliflower recipe, I just can’t help myself. And another chickpea recipe. Dressing chickpeas with delicious flavoursome dressings is my current thing. They just soak up flavour so well and are super filling so are great in lighter salads like this.
