That title pretty much sums up this super simple salad entirely. But it also probably has you scratching your head going, but why miso and tomatoes? So hear me out.
The flavours and textures in this potato salad make it such a winner and the perfect thing to bring to a picnic or have as a side with any summer dinner. That salmon recipe from yesterday would be great with this! As there’s no mayo it’s fresh and light and the crisp radishes and sweet peas really get to shine through.
Why hello there 2018! I’ve let you roll in ind of quietly without making too much of a fuss in this little corner of the internet. None of that new year new me stuff over here. New year, same me is more my vibe. That doesn’t mean I haven’t got lots of exciting plans happening that I can’t ait to share with you all but there’s not going to be any sudden changes to the scheduled programming, that’s for sure. No diets or resolutions. Just good food and happy times. With that in mind this happy belly making dahl is something I’m oh so happy to share with you to bring in the new year.
Here it is, my final festive recipe for the season… and look how pretty it is! Plus it’s very simple to make with the easiest pastry ever. There’s no resting needed, no butter, no special equipment. It looks impressive and you can make it without any added sugar at all, so go ahead and eat it for breakfast 😉
My tahini obsession has reached new heights recently and this chicken is the best thing to come out of it. I’ve never used tahini to give sesame flavour to Asian dishes before and I have no idea why because it’s amazing. The marinade coating this chicken is insanely tasty and the chicken gets golden and crispy so it’s a very good time.
Why hello there summer, do I have the perfect accompaniment for you. These icey poles are life and have i fact been saving my life for weeks now. They’re so simple to make and taste amazing. Like a mango Weiss bar but better. Well I think they’re better, and they’re also better for you.
This salad tastes like summer on a plate. The smell of the ripe mangoes with the tangy peanut dressing is actually intoxicating. Mango, chili, avocado and prawn is such a great refreshing and summery combination, the sweetness of the mango balances the nutty soy laced dressing and compliments the prawns perfectly. Get ready to fall in love with your dinner…
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.
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.
Anyone who knows me knows that I’m dumpling obsessed. They’re not just one of my favourite things to eat but one of my favourite things to make. That’s why there’s already a few dumpling recipes on the blog. My favourites have always been my potsticker recipe but these dumplings are boiled and sooo good. Like I might even like them more… that could be more to do with that sauce though. Actually no, everything about these is a good time.
