MISO AND GINGER TOFU CURRY

This curry is like a love child between ramen broth and a coconut curry. I wanted the curry ‘gravy’ to have that flavour bomb thing going on that you get with ramen but to be served over rice like a curry. And wait for it… I cooked tofu in a pan not the oven for once! Turns out I can let go of my safety net!

MIDDLE EASTERN CHICKEN AND BARLEY SALAD

   This is an easy and delicious salad that works just as well as a filling dinner as it does as an easy-to-batch-cook work lunch. The flavours and textures are great together plus the mixture of protein sources and complex carbs mean it’s super filling.

PRAWN GADO GADO SALAD

I don’t know if this is something you’ve picked up on but I’m pretty into a peanut dressing at the moment. There was the coconut poached chicken salad, the tofu schnitzel strips and the satay Tofu. Is it getting repetitive? I hope not because this is another good one! This salad is both refreshing and filling and I’m not going to claim it’s traditional. Let’s call it my take on a Gado Gado salad instead.

HALOUMI, ZUCCHINI, TOMATO AND PEARL COUSCOUS SALAD

This is a very summery couscous salad made super delicious with… HALOUMI. Because cheese if life and haloumi is so golden and salty and delicious. It’s one of my favourite cheeses because of how it is transformed in heat. It also takes this salad from side dish to lunch by adding a little extra protein to satisfy.

CHICKEN, PRAWN AND CABBAGE DUMPLINGS IN CHILLI BROTH

DUMPLINGS!!! Give me all the dumplings, always!

That said I also love making my ow and these are all kinds of perfect. A delicate filling, delicious spicy broth and greens – this is a health food blog after all.

LEMON, PARSLEY AND CUMIN BARBECUED CHICKEN

Often people don’t thinking of cooking chicken whole on the barbecue when they think of barbecue. And I don’t mean rotisserie style I mean right on the grill. It’s by far one of my favourite things to barbecue as it gives it so much flavour and such crispy skin. Cooking on the bone also helps prevent some of the dryness that you can get with grilled chicken.
