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.
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.
This is a super adaptable recipe, it’s one of my favourite fridge clean out meals and you really can use the basic ‘technique’ and simple flavours to make fried rice out of whatever you have leftover. It’s really simple comfort food at its best! This combination is so tasty though, especially with build your own toppings I like to serve on the side.
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.
Kale chips, yes yes I’m a bit late jumping on this bandwagon but I swear I’ve been making them for years now. It’s just that I didn’t think my kale chips with just olive oil, sometimes chilli, and salt were ground breaking enough to share with anyone. Not that every recipe I share is always groundbreaking! Clearly not! But these kale chips are next level. I ate 2/3 of a bunch of kale in one sitting because of these. That’s a lot of kale, who does that?
It’s always a good time for curry and this one is so quick and simple to do. Plus it’s full of flavour like all good curries. And just look at the bright yellow colour!
These are so delicious! A pimped up jacket potato!! They’re the perfect side or a great vehicle for ALL the toppings. The best baked potato I’ve ever made. Ever. That’s a big statement and I’m sticking by it. Want to know all the secrets?
Welcome to 2017! I thought due to the New Years resolutions I’m sure have happened I should start things off for the year with a salad. A delicious, filling, nutritious salad with smokey grilled eggplant and a creamy tahini dressing – it’s a good one!
This salad is so pretty and full of flavour. it combines a couple of my favourite things… hummus and cauliflower. I’ve been really into loading roasted cauliflower onto hummus lately and then scooping it all up with some flat bread… or just a fork. But I felt I could make the whole thing look less beige. So now we have this.
This is such a delicious side, or you can have it with some quinoa and an egg and call it a whole meal. The crispy, just caramelised broccoli pieces against the creamy feta and golden pine nuts is a perfect mix. if you’re looking for a stand out side for your holiday feast give this one a shot.
