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.
I love snacking, especially when you’re watching a movie or sharing some drinks with friends. This popcorn takes a simple snack to the next level, making it very grown up and even more addictive than the original. Look out.
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.
DUMPLINGS!!! Give me all the dumplings, always! If somebody wants to do a causal dinner, I’m always like “should we get dumplings?” because I want them always and will take any excuse to go out for them. That said I also love making my ow and these are all kinds of perfect. A delicate filling, delicious spicy broth and greens – this is a health food blog after all.
These prawns are the best! They’re so full of flavour and, thanks to the chickpea flour coating, are crispy and golden. The spicy salt seasoning makes them super delicious. Just writing about them makes me want to eat them again…
In case you’ve just arrived here by chance I’ll fill you in on something important about me: I love dumplings. Dumplings are life and I love them in all their many forms. I’ve tried many vegetarian dumplings and these are definitely my favourite ones. Tis rich mushrooms with the fresh chives is just such a good combination!
Does that sound weird? Because it shouldn’t as avocado and egg are obvs amazing together. And the thin slices of mirin seasoned omelette make the perfect vegetarian rice paper roll filling. And that dipping sauce, oh it’s good.
These are so good! Golden, crispy, crunchy goodness. They’re kind of begging for an ice cold beer, or some other tasty beverage to go along with them but you can also get all virtuous and have them on top of a nourish bowl situation. I like to think of them as one of two things: sustainable coconut prawns or sustainable sesame fried chicken. Sustainable because they’re not either of those two things. Hilarious (don’t hate me).
This is a surprisingly easy breakfast or lunch as scrambled eggs take no time at all to prep. It’s also fresh and tasty and has protein, omega 3’s, vegetables and fruit in it – a super well rounded meal!
