VEGETARIAN HUEVOS ROTOS

It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday and for many of you that might mean brunch. My own mum has vetoed the idea and opted for dinner but I might see if my sister wants brunch because I feel like it’s just a good option for any Sunday. Who’s with me?  This dish translates to broken eggs and it can be eaten any time of the day you like, the first time I ate it was for dinner;) However if your mum is all about the savoury breakfast his will be a winner and it’s a breeze to make!

GLUTEN FREE EGGPLANT CHIPS WITH MAPLE BALSAMIC SAUCE

I think all 3 recipes I’m posting this week have little travel stories attached to them. I got the idea for these chips from a trip to Granada, Spain. I went for a weekend and ate my weight in Tapas, so obviously I loved every moment of it.

COUSCOUS FRITTERS

I’m back from holidays and not loving reality. Such a positive start to a blog post right? I feel like I could have extended my holiday for twice the length at least if money hadn’t have been an issue. If money wan’t an issue so much of life would be different wouldn’t it? But I had the most amazing time, and have so many experiences to share with you all…soon. For now let’s start with a recipe that was influenced by Morocco, where couscous is king.

MUSHROOM, KALE AND LENTIL VEGETARIAN SAUSAGE ROLLS

   Who doesn’t love a good sausage roll? We do these so well in Australia and I’ve been branching out occasionally recently and doing something I never thought I would. Eating vego sausage rolls. Sorry, ‘sausage’ rolls. I’m still calling them that as they’re the right shape and the same idea but just filled with veggies! Super nourishing and filling and all encased in flaky puff pastry.

BAKED SWEET POTATOES WITH CHEDDAR, BLACK BEANS AND GREEN SALSA

Baked sweet potatoes make for such a good lunch or dinner! You can make these ahead of time and just reheat things when you’re ready to eat. They take a little bit of time in the oven but you’re just waiting for most of that time – there’s not lots you need to do to make them delicious. You can read a book, dance round the kitchen, have a glass of wine etc while you wait for the oven to do it’s thing.

QUICK AND EASY HANGOVER NOODLES

The whole point of these noodles is to be quick, easy and full of some goodness. I’m not sure about you but sometimes the celebrations get away with me and it only takes one glass too many of wine and I am not feeling my healthiest the next day. I like to avoid the potful of hangovers, eating all the fried food and drinking sugary things, as often as possible. I mean, we’re all human but there’s no need to stack on the punishment for your body right? These noodles are your saviour.

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.

QUICK SPICY VEGETARIAN RAMEN

I am aware this sin’t my first ‘quick ramen’ recipe but it’s one of my favourite things to eat for dinner so I will keep coming up with variations and sharing them with you. That by no means indicates any level of authenticity. if I’m making ramen at home it isn’t going to be like the ramen experience at a restaurant as I’m just not going to spend that much time making something that I love for how quick it is! That said, it still has to be delicious.
