This is a nourishing bowl of goodness. The sweet and sticky carrots, bright green peppery rocket, creamy labne, spicy za’atar mix and filling quinoa and lentils make for a delicious lunch or easy to throw together dinner. Everything can be prepped early and be waiting for you in the fridge to grab and take to work.
This salad has a lot going for it, such as a whole rainbow of colour. Not to mention it’s super filling, full of protein, complex carbs, fibre and all the vitamins from that pretty array of vegetables. Speaking of pretty it also has that and I do think eating pretty food makes it taste better… we eat with our eyes and all that?
Poke. Not the thing you used to do on Facebook. The Hawaiian fish salad that can be combined with all sorts of other things to make a sort of deconstructed sushi bowl. This is my rather free interpretation of it. It has honestly become one of my favourite things to eat, easy, filling and nourishing PLUS it can be endlessly varied to suit your tastes and mood. Perfect.
This salad is fresh and delicious, the perfect thing to accompany a summer barbecue. The ribbons of zucchini curl around the juicy peas, and the sharp vinaigrette balances the creamy mozzarella and sweet peas perfectly.
This baby packs a flavour punch + is filled with loads of veg to help you get your daily fix. You could make it with any noodles you have on hand and it will work out just fine. I know I’ve posted a few noodle based recipes lately but that’s because they’re so good for this warm weather we’ve been having, a 30 degree spring days (celsius for you international peeps) is crazy for Melbourne, so maybe I’ve gone a little crazy for cold salads too. Just maybe.
This makes for a fantastic grab and go, pre prepped for your morning rush breakfast solution. Yes salad is your breakfast solution. Because it’s acceptable to eat salad at all other times of the day so why not breakfast? I know fruit salad is a breakfast staple but I don’t really like fruit salad. It makes me think of nasty hotel breakfast buffets or syrupy concoctions. This is a savoury salad, full of greens and they typical things you might eat for breakfast – just in a salad.
This salad makes a delicious dinner when the weather gets warm and an easy lunch. You can make it the day ahead and take it to work. As you’ll see it’s seriously simple to make, simple food is where it’s at for week day lunches.
Soba noodles, miso, sesame, a pile of vegetables and a couple of great protein sources – all this makes up the bowl of health. This beautiful looking bowl is full of goodness, such as: omega 3s, protein, vitamin a, b, c, e and k, antioxidants, fibre, iron, calcium just to name a few!
This salad is fresh and zingy and full of contrasting textures – everything I like in a salad. And it’s basically fresh and zingy salad time now as the weekends have really been turning it on lately. Spring is here, like really here. Well for today anyway, if I get too excited about all this sun Melbourne will go and take it away again.
