Yes, yes poke is raw fish and this is a vegan recipe. As per usual I’m and playing it fast and loose with the food rules and calling things what I feel like. The steamed and marinated beetroot stands in for the raw fish in this ‘poke’ rendition and it’s full of fresh, light flavours.
The matcha tinted brown rice in these bowls is topped with flakes of steamed salmon and a cucumber, sesame, mint and pickled ginger salad. The matcha, ginger and fish are such a delicious combination with a beautiful balance of salty sharpness.
This year I’m making an effort to mix up some of the more complicated recipes I do with really simple ones. Things with shorter ingredient lists, less processes and less time required to make them. Because I don’t want healthy to feel hard for anyone! I’ll still be writing things that have a few more processes and things because it’s also great to challenge oneself – just not every night of the week, right?
I love a salad bowl. Clearly. And at this time of the year a grilled chicken salad is what I feel like eating most of the time. This is also delicious with a boiled egg or some haloumi (seared in a non stick pan) instead of the chicken if you’re into a more vegetarian vibe.
Chipotle Tofu Bowls? Heck yes I’m in! You all know by now that I love ‘bowl food’ and have probably caught on to my love of Mexican too (recent enchilada and tortilla soup posts might have hinted at this..). If you’ve really be paying attention you may also have noticed that I’m getting into the occasional serve of tofu too.
How was everyone’s week? I hope it was full on sunshine, wonderful people and delicious food. Let’s work on making next week all about that too shall we?
This might be my favourite dish yet this summer. or at least my favourite chicken dish. I have a lot of favourites when it comes to food. And any way I can have chicken schnitzel in a healthier way is pretty damn exciting for me. This has all my favourite things about schnitzel: golden crispy exterior, succulent juicy chicken and great flavour. It has all these things with out being laden with oil from deep frying – yay.
This is an easy work lunch or vegetarian dinner. The flavours are fresh and simple, just what you want in summer! As far as these sort of colourful bowls go it’s blissfully simple to make and full of all the flavour, texture and yum you could want.
Summer, you glorious season you. Time for eating in the sun outside, easy salads and colourful lunch bowls. Just like this one. This little bowl is easy to make and is the perfect thing if you’re heading back to work this next week.
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.
