Often people don’t thinking of cooking chicken whole on the barbecue when they think of barbecue. And I don’t mean rotisserie style I mean right on the grill. It’s by far one of my favourite things to barbecue as it gives it so much flavour and such crispy skin. Cooking on the bone also helps prevent some of the dryness that you can get with grilled chicken.
A super simple make ahead breakfast that will put a smile on your face in the morning. I love peanut butter in both sweet and savoury dishes, and this slightly sweet dessert is given a nutty protein kick with a good dollop of roasted peanut butter.
This is one of my simple go to pastas that you don’t need a whole lot of ingredients or time to make. I make it almost every week at the moment, or whenever I have zucchini that needs using up. It’s simple, tasty and quick – everything I want in a mid week pasta dish.
And it’s February! How’s the year going so far? Such an annoying question, because we all love to be reminded of how fast time passes don’t we? This week, for the majority of them, I’ve tried to make the recipes quick and easy to throw together after work. The whole making things easier for people when it comes to cooking healthier food is totally my vibe this year.
It’s time for another great pasta recipe! This one tastes like summer with juicy sweet corn, fresh cherry tomatoes, loads of basil and pesto and all finished with creamy buffalo mozzarella. Yum! I’ve been really into pasta lately. I try to limit it to once a week but sometimes I want to have it twice because there’s just so many different sauce variations you can do and it’s such a great low effort meal. My solution? Zucchini noodles! But not just zucchini noodles, it’s got to be a mix of REAL pasta and zoodles so I’m still satisfying those carb cravings.
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.
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.
Crunchy golden tofu pieces in a spicy salty sauce with toasted sesame seeds, hell yes! Put it all on top of a pile of fine rice noodles and fresh slaw and I’m a happy girl. This is by no means a traditional bun bowl with all the right flavours and – but they were the inspiration, so don’t get angry at me for my description. Let 2017 be the year of you having fun with your food and letting go of the rule book.
This is such a simple dish but so delicious that I had to share the recipe with you. The perfect summer food thanks to the cherry tomatoes and fresh basil – and the fact you won’t need the oven on!
This soup. Just, well it’s everything. If you’ve never used tortillas to thicken your soup you’ve got to do it. It’s genius as it makes it creamier without having to use cream! If a soup can be summery and still hot then this is it. It’s perfect for cities like Melbourne when you’re blessed with summer produce but there’s just as much chance of a cold 6 degree day in December as there is a 34 degree one. The toppings are out of control and the main reason for that summer vibe.
