I’ve made broccoli fritters before but I love the ginger in these ones, it’s a fresh immune boosting vibe for this chilli season and I’m all about it. The best part about this dish is definitely in the combination of fritters and cucumber and peanut salad though. so good, so much flavour and texture and super easy to make!
This dish was a happy accident. I made a kale and lemon pappardelle, and then accidentally left the pan on with the leftovers in it. The pasta got all golden and crispy on the bottom, as did he make and the Parmesan melted through it and it was BETTER. A few other changes later and we have the beautiful, wholesome and easy to make skillet ‘lasange’.
I haven’t made a buddha bowl in what feels like ages and this was just what I needed. Golden coconut coated tofu, roasted kale and lightly pickled carrot with a creamy avocado and peanut sauce or piled on top of quinoa – perfect.
This is such an easy soup recipe and will keep you feeling warm on these chilly winter days. It can be ready in 30 minutes and is all done in one pot, no blending required. The spices can be adjusted to suit your taste and you can leave out some if you don’t have a well stocked spice cupboard. That said, buy SOME spices though, cos if you don’t know how to flavour your food what are you even doing?!
I have been eating porridge most mornings lately. This is super unusual for me, not because I don’t like porridge, I’m all about it, but because I just don’t eat the same thing multiple mornings in a row. I’ve been changing it up a little bit in terms of porridge flavourings but this is the one that’s been on highest rotation. It’s oats, but it tastes like banana bread so what’s not to like?!
This weekend has been so crisp, sunny days becoming cold nights and I just don’t know why I’m never prepared for this level of winter. Every year I’m all like, ‘I don’t remember it being this cold last year’, when clearly it was. And for al of you that live in places that are actually cold. I’m only talking single digits celsius that I’m struggling with. There’s no snow or actual cold. Just me dressing inappropriately, as a fairly constant state of affairs. But man is it making me crave hot food for every meal.
You cannot possibly underestimate the warming, healing and happiness power of a good soup on a cold day. I’m probably making at least 1 soup a week at the moment and filling my freezer with tasty things for cold days when cooking is just beyond me. Yeah even people like me who spend all their time, thinking about, writing about and cooking food can’t be stuffed sometimes. Make your way through this tasty little collection this winter for happy bellies and warm hands.
You all know by now that I’m pretty pro the cauliflower. Especially roasted, the texture is the best: tender on the inside, crispy on the outside. Plus, it’s a magnet for other delicious flavours. It’s so good that you can have this salad without the salmon and it’s still DELICIOUS. But the salmon is amazing too! This is basically the perfect warm winter salad.
