Crispy Sesame Chicken Pieces

My tahini obsession has reached new heights recently and this chicken is the best thing to come out of it. I’ve never used tahini to give sesame flavour to Asian dishes before and I have no idea why because it’s amazing. The marinade coating this chicken is insanely tasty and the chicken gets golden and crispy so it’s a very good time.

Sesame, Miso and Ginger One Pot Chicken Ramen

Basically ramen. But I cheated, and made it quick and easy, like almost as easy as 2 minute noodles but full of goodness and yummy nourishing things rather than a weird dehydrated sachet of ‘flavour’. But let’s be honest, I might be trash talking that stuff but I crave it sometimes as it was the comfort food of my childhood and then hangover food of my teenage years and very early twenties. Don’t judge me, just admire how far I’ve come;)

Chicken Parma Burgers with Roasted Tomato and Pesto

I’m not going to sit here and claim that burgers are a health food. Or that schnitzel is. Or that making it with nuts instead of bread crumbs is ‘better’ for you. It does taste so amazing though. This recipe is more about realising that it’s okay to eat whatever it is you want to eat. But if you make the food your craving yourself rather than swinging through a drive through your undoubtedly going to end up eating something far more wholesome and real and that’s worth celebrating. This burger is made from scratch (you could make the rolls if you’re feeling really time rich) using the best quality ingredients you can afford and that makes it super tasty. Just look at all that melted cheese too. Oh my.

Bacon and Broad Bean Fried Rice

I love fried rice. I bonded with one of my dearest friends over fried rice. The first time we met was at a bar: I walked up to her and re-braided her hair, she was my boyfriend-at-the-time’s friend and earlier in the evening I had instructed him – at his request – on how to plait a fish tail braid over the phone. When I got there I was like, ‘nope’, and immediately fixed it. Later on that evening we ended up at China Bar eating their amazing fried rice and had a love-in over how much we both loved said fried rice. And dumplings, we’re also big fans of dumplings.

Pork and Vegetable Dumplings with a Sweet and Spicy Sauce

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m dumpling obsessed. They’re not just one of my favourite things to eat but one of my favourite things to make. That’s why there’s already a few dumpling recipes on the blog. My favourites have always been my potsticker recipe but these dumplings are boiled and sooo good. Like I might even like them more… that could be more to do with that sauce though. Actually no, everything about these is a good time.

Roasted Cauliflower And Kale Salad With Lemony Zucchini And Golden Haloumi

This salad is a trans seasonal dream, just like our current Melbourne weather. it’s got some beautiful late winter vegetables mixed with spring goodness and all tied together with that golden haloumi.
