Everything about these is a yay. I’m a little waffle obsessed and sometimes even just use my waffle maker as a sandwich press, but it’s always a happy day when I whip up a batch of waffles and I’m really vibing the savoury variety at the moment. These are filled with potato and parmesan and you’re going to love them.
Ever since doing the Gut Makeover, I’ve been really into keeping my breakfast grain free 5 days a week. This isn’t because there’s anything wrong with grains – I love grains and eat them all the time. It’s more about giving me space in my diet to make sure I’m including a wide variety of other foods, especially fruit and vegetables. This little collection of recipes are my regular go to breakfasts.
I love fried rice. I bonded with one of my dearest friends over fried rice. The first time we met was at a bar: I walked up to her and re-braided her hair, she was my boyfriend-at-the-time’s friend and earlier in the evening I had instructed him – at his request – on how to plait a fish tail braid over the phone. When I got there I was like, ‘nope’, and immediately fixed it. Later on that evening we ended up at China Bar eating their amazing fried rice and had a love-in over how much we both loved said fried rice. And dumplings, we’re also big fans of dumplings.
This week has flown past thanks to the long weekend and I feel like I was only writing last weeks meal plans a day ago. But here we are again and this week is full of tasty things, as per usual because that’s the whole point isn’t it?
What’s better than a bowl of home made crisps (aka potato chips) straight from the oven? Nothing! These cheesy herby morsels of goodness are super satisfying if you get a craving for the variety you can buy in bags at the supermarket. Making them yourself means you know they’ve got nothing nasty going on.
Oh yeah. These are happening. They’re like a a coconut rough cupcake but with green vegetables in them. Yesss please. Don’t freak out about the vegetable content, it’s there to give texture and zucchini is so mild and slightly sweet so it’s a totally fine thing to put in your baked goods. No more zany than carrot cake. So if you can get around carrot cake, you can get around these.
Birthday week is doooone! And it was such a good one, if a bit of a blur. I had the Bupa Blog Awards on Thursday night and although I didn’t win it was such a pleasure to be one of the finalists and meet some crazy talented people. People like Tara from the Nutrition Guru and the Chef who was the winner of my category. But the week’s been BUSY so I’m just finishing off this post this morning thus it’s probably going to be posted a little later than usual!
When the recipe title is basically just the recipe. Whoops, probs got a little too descriptive with that one. But I couldn’t decide what the most important part was because all these things make these nachos delicious and special. Also they’re nachos so by default a pretty great time.
Not every meal needs to be a production. Sometimes all I want for lunch or dinner is just some beautiful fresh bread topped with something tasty. And these ‘shrooms are so tasty. It’s ind of like the vegetable and fancy equivalent of vegemite on toast thanks to the complex miso butter flavour.
