CRISPY COCONUT AND SESAME CAULIFLOWER

CRISPY COCONUT AND SESAME CAULIFLOWER    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).

PITA CHIP VEGETARIAN ‘NACHOS’

PITA CHIP VEGETARIAN NACHOS 5    Confession: these aren’t really nachos. They aren’t made using corn chips because when they craving took I only had some slightly less than fresh pita bread on hand. I hate waste so wanted to use it and these were born from what was in my fridge/pantry. The perfect lazy, waste free dinner and so delicious I made them 3 times in a week.

VEGETARIAN OKONOMIYAKI

Grilled things you like. That is apparently what ‘okonomiyaki’ translates to (I read fried things somewhere else but same same…kinda), and this is definitely a grilled thing I like. These Japanese pancakes are a fantastic way to use up left over vegetables and make a super quick dinner. They’re also ridiculously tasty but I’m not going to claim this is a particularly ‘traditional recipe’. Instead, I’ve gone for easy.

BARBECUED CALAMARI WITH GRILLED CORN SALSA

 Calamari loves to quickly cooked, and it doesn’t need to be deep fried to still be delicious. This recipe ticks lots of boxes for me, it’s quick, easy and all the cutting for the salsa is balance by the lack of it for the calamari.

MISO CARAMELISED EGGPLANT IN LETTUCE CUPS

I never used to be an eggplant fan. It was too often, butter, soggy or watery. I’ve learnt that when it’s cooked in certain ways it is so delicious. This is one of those ways, in this little recipe the eggplant becomes meaty and laden with umami rich  flavours from the miso paste. The crisp lettuce cups are a perfect foil to this salty richness.
