PUMPKIN AND FETA BRUSCHETTA

PUMPKIN AND FETA BRUSCHETTA 2   The creamy caramelised pumpkin that tops this bruschetta can easily be prepared the night before for an indulgent week day breakfast or just add a poached egg and you’ve got a delicious weekend brunch. Sweet pumpkin, fragrant thyme and salty feta is a pretty classic combination, but perhaps you’re yet to eat it for breakfast?

GREEN GODDESS NOODLE BOWL WITH GINGER MISO DRESSING

GREEN GODDESS NOODLE BOWL WITH GINGER MISO DRESSING 2  This green goddess noodle bowl makes for such a delicious lunch. It can be eaten warm or cold, is full of green veg, buckwheat noodles and a tasty immune boosting ginger laced dressing. Plus it can be vegetarian, vegan or filled with whatever choice of protein you’re into. Versatile, easy food that works just as well for lunch as it does for dinner is what I’m all about.

MUSHROOM, FETA AND MOZZARELLA CHICKPEA PIZZA (Gluten Free!)

Mushroom, Mozzarella and Feta Chickpea Pizza 3  Because there can never be enough cheese. This flat bread uses 2 of my favourite cheeses: buffalo mozzarella and goats feta. Both have such a great creaminess to them but I love the combination of sharp feta and gooey mozzarella against the mushrooms on this flatbread. It’s perfect.

MEXICAN RAINBOW SALAD

Mexican Rainbow Salad 3  This salad has a lot going for it, such as a whole rainbow of colour. Not to mention it’s super filling, full of protein, complex carbs, fibre and all the vitamins from that pretty array of vegetables. Speaking of pretty it also has that and I do think eating pretty food makes it taste better… we eat with our eyes and all that?

Mushroom, Spinach, Lemon and Thyme Risotto
Mushroom, Spinach, Lemon and Thyme Risotto – details below.

This week’s post is all about entertainment, specifically what I’m watching (and eating) when I’m staying in this week and where I’ve been going when eating out. As much as I love to cook, I also love to eat other people’s food. Whether it be at a friends place or at restaurant there’s something fabulous about someone else cooking for you.

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.

MINT, BEETROOT AND GREEN BEAN SALAD

I’m really into beets and goats cheese at the moment (such as in this tart!), and the mint and beans in this salad mean it’s also fresh and crunchy, making it another delicious summer salad to add to your rotation.

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.

BARBECUED BROCCOLI WITH ALMOND AND CHILLI

Broccoli is one of my favourite vegetables and this recipe works with both broccoli and broccolini. Over here in the southern hemisphere we’re busy barbecuing everything in sight and in my house vegetables do not escape the grill!

BEETROOT, SPINACH AND GOATS CHEESE GALETTE

All the things about this tart make me very happy. Earthy, sweet beetroot, bright green spinach, the pretty beetroot greens and the creamy goats cheese. This is a fairly classic combination, but I’ve included a few tweaks in this recipe to include more vegetables and use some of my favourite things. The result is a nutty, sweet and salty tart that I love for lunch or dinner.
