I didn’t really know what to call this as it has a bit of everything in it and is loaded with flavour.. thus what I ended up calling it! This salad is a reworking of one of my favourite vegetarian salads but with a different dressing and a few other changes because… well I can’t make it the same now can I?
The noodle salad is made with a mixture of ribboned carrot ‘noodles’ and rice noodles. The combination of fresh and pickled vegetables with the spicy avocado dressing a tart grapefruit is so refreshing you’ll be craving this when the warm weather really sets in.
This salad is so morish and fresh. Full of flavour and textures it’s basically everything a salad should be. The creamy yoghurt based dressing and the crunchy spiced chickpea croutons are winners you’ll be using in all your salad bowls.
These guys are my new favourite salad bowl obsession. Or nourish bowl. Or buddah bowl. Or food. Whatever you want to call it. Super easy to make with good texture and flavour. What more do you want? You can also eat them as a side when you’re dining family style, instead of roast potatoes or something. Or in my case, as well as (don’t take my potatoes away).
As the weather warms up I’m in the mood for bowls of fresh food with crisp zingy flavours. And this bowl ticks all those boxes. It’s also getting closer to BBQ weather and this steak would be perfect on the BBQ.
This salad is high in protein and fibre to keep you full for longer and it’s so delicious! Like, surprisingly delicious. I made it for my friend Ally for lunch and she proceeded to message me at 30 second intervals as she ate it saying things like ‘it’s so yummmmm’ ‘Holy shit this salad is delicious’ and the like. She’s very supportive.
Does that sound weird? Because it shouldn’t as avocado and egg are obvs amazing together. And the thin slices of mirin seasoned omelette make the perfect vegetarian rice paper roll filling. And that dipping sauce, oh it’s good.
I love this risotto. It’s full of fresh green vegetables and finished with lemon zest to really enhance that freshness. Lemon zest and juice basically my favourite seasoning, up there with salt and pepper. Once you’ve tried it on this risotto you’ll see why.
