BAKED SALMON WITH CITRUS HERB YOGHURT SAUCE AND GRAIN SALAD

Salmon baked in a bag for the win! It’s 2017 and I feel like this recipe is a bit of a 90’s throw back or something. But done in a modern way with the healthy grains and shredded veg right? I think… Anyway this is super easy and you can use any grains you like. I love the nutty combo of barley and quinoa with the vegetables and omega 3 rich salmon.

CHILLI SESAME CRISPY TOFU BUN BOWLS

      Crunchy golden tofu pieces in a spicy salty sauce with toasted sesame seeds, hell yes! Put it all on top of a pile of fine rice noodles and fresh slaw and I’m a happy girl. This is by no means a traditional bun bowl with all the right flavours and – but they were the inspiration, so don’t get angry at me for my description. Let 2017 be the year of you having fun with your food and letting go of the rule book.

GARLIC AND LEMON LINGUINI WITH BLISTERED CHERRY TOMATOES AND BASIL

This is such a simple dish but so delicious that I had to share the recipe with you. The perfect summer food thanks to the cherry tomatoes and fresh basil – and the fact you won’t need the oven on!

SWEET POTATO AND BLACK BEAN ENCHILADAS

I don’t really know where to start with how delicious these are. And messy. And delicious. And colourful. And tasty. And did I mention delicious? They’re a winner and you can easily make the enchilada sauce in advance (or buy it if you live near somewhere that sells a good one).

ROASTED TOMATO AND RED PEPPER TORTILLA SOUP WITH GRILLED SWEET CORN AND AVOCADO

   This soup. Just, well it’s everything. If you’ve never used tortillas to thicken your soup you’ve got to do it. It’s genius as it makes it creamier without having to use cream! If a soup can be summery and still hot then this is it. It’s perfect for cities like Melbourne when you’re blessed with summer produce but there’s just as much chance of a cold 6 degree day in December as there is a 34 degree one. The toppings are out of control and the main reason for that summer vibe.

Mushroom and spring onion dumplings     In case you’ve just arrived here by chance I’ll fill you in on something important about me: I love dumplings.

CAULIFLOWER RICE CHICKPEA AND AVOCADO SALAD WITH LEMON FETA DRESSING

Yep. It’s another cauliflower recipe, I just can’t help myself. And another chickpea recipe. Dressing chickpeas with delicious flavoursome dressings is my current thing. They just soak up flavour so well and are super filling so are great in lighter salads like this.

YAKITORI CHICKEN BOWLS WITH JAPANESE SLAW

YAKITORI CHICKEN BOWLS WITH JAPANESE SLAW    Okay so I do realise that yakitori belongs on a skewer but stop ruining my fun and love of food in a bowl. This has all the flavours of yakitori marinade but you don’t need to put the meat on a skewer or have a grill/open flame to cook it on. So it’s yakitori, but less effort.

QUINOA BIBIMBAP BOWL WITH SPICY CABBAGE AND BROCCOLI

Quinoa Bibimbap with Spicy Cabbage and stir fried broccoli

Well hello there you spicy-flavour-texture-bomb-colourful bowl of goodness you. This is not my first vegetarian bibimbap. It’s more of a green and pink affair than the last one and I’m totally into the colour combo. And the flavours. Everything on this is yelling at you but when you get them all together they harmonise.
