This salad is fresh and zingy and full of contrasting textures – everything I like in a salad.  And it’s basically fresh and zingy salad time now as the weekends have really been turning it on lately. Spring is here, like really here. Well for today anyway, if I get too excited about all this sun Melbourne will go and take it away again.

CORN FRITTERS

I love going out for brunch and one of my favourite things on any brunch menu is fritters. Especially corn ones! But so often they are deep fried and more batter than corn. These fritters are quick and easy, full of corn and gluten free. They also make a really easy to prep lunch idea.

CRISPY CAULIFLOWER TACOS

It’s true. I have posted A LOT of cauliflower recipes of late. But I keep on finding whole cauliflower at the market for $2 or less and I just can’t resist a good deal! These tacos are a fabulous vegetarian alternative to my usual fish or chicken tacos. The cauliflower florets get all delicious and crunchy on the outside while staying a little crisp on the inside – I’m not a fan of overcooked cauliflower!

SPICED PUMPKIN AND SWEET POTATO SOUP



Winter means soup. Lots of root vegetables are in abundance and you pretty much want to fill your body with heat at this time of the year, and soup goes well with both those things. This soup uses sweet potato, pumpkin, fragrant spices and a little coconut to warm and nourish you from the inside out.

CRUNCHY, SALTY, SWEET ADDICTIVELY GOOD PUMPKIN AND KALE SALAD

Healthy Hunter-65

I could not think of a name for this to save myself. It has roasted pumpkin, crispy kale, caramelised pecans, salty feta, massaged kale and wild rice all in a lemony dressing. It’s ridiculous, addictively good stuff. And it’s a salad, how many salads are addictive? Salads with crunchy, salty and sweet notes definitely are. Everything in this salad is so good and different and balanced it makes you want to keep going back for more.

POTSTICKERS WITH PICKLED CARROTS AND BLACK VINEGAR.


Healthy Hunter-43

I love dumplings. So so much. They are up there with my most favourite foods ever. Which is probably still a long list as I don’t like playing favourites with food… it’s all so good. I would normally serve these as an entree or nibble for friends or have them for dinner with a pile of steamed broccolini on the side because you know, health. The filling is juicy and flavoursome and the contrast between the crunchy underside of the dumpling and the soft chewy top is what eating is all about. The vinegary carrots add something a bit different to the garnish and some crunch.

ROAST POTATO SALAD WITH AN ASIAN VINAIGERETTE


IMG_4429

I’m a little potato obsessed. I love all kinds and I also love that different potatoes have favourite ways of being cooked, it gives them their own little personality. Dutch creams love a good mashing, Russets make the best roasties and fries and kipflers, well those litlle nuggets of joy are perfect eaten with their skin on boiled or roasted. In this recipe I boil them then roast them and chuck them in a mayonnaise free roast potato salad of sorts. It’s served warm but would be fine the next day straight from the fridge too. The asian flavours make a nice break from my usual potato salad and lend the kipflers a welcome freshness. The texture of the soft coriander, crunchy nuts and the crispy potatoes is also great. Plus potatoes love salt and the dressing is all about that.
