VEGGIE BURGER

If you’re after a fun, quick and easy meat free monday idea then this recipe has you covered. I’ve been playing around with veggie patties for a while now and I’m finally really happy with one. This patty has a good ratio of vegetables and legume, and a flavour that doesn’t overwhelm the rest of the burger components, just gets a nice little harmony going on with them.  And that’s exactly what I wanted from this burger.

HEALTHY LUNCHES, ZERO PREP

These lunches are aimed at people who have a work kitchenette and actually get a lunch break – but have limited time for lunch prep outside of work. Or, like me, maybe some days you’re just not that organised and need something you can throw together at the start of lunch that’s more nutritious than two minute noodles (and isn’t a tuna salad).

OVERNIGHT OATS WITH CINNAMON NUT CRUMBLE AND CARAMELISED PLUMS

This is a delicious breakfast and perfect as we approach summer as it’s both cold and involves summer stone fruit – yum! You can make everything the night before so in the morning you just layer it all together (also known as throwing the topping in your oat jar/container) and you’re ready to run out the door.

GRILLED CAULIFLOWER STEAK WITH A TAHINI AND YOGHURT DRESSING

This simple little recipe is delicious for lunch or dinner and can be made with very little kitchen equipment. In fact just a pan or a sandwich press is all you will need, and basic things like a knife, plate and spoon but if you don’t have those I’m guessing you’re not big on cooking and probably aren’t even reading this. Good chat.

RAINBOW NOODLE SALAD WITH CORIANDER AND PEANUT PESTO

This baby packs a flavour punch + is filled with loads of veg to help you get your daily fix. You could make it with any noodles you have on hand and it will work out just fine. I know I’ve posted a few noodle based recipes lately but that’s because they’re so good for this warm weather we’ve been having, a 30 degree spring days (celsius for you international peeps) is crazy for Melbourne, so maybe I’ve gone a little crazy for cold salads too. Just maybe.

MY TOP 5 WAYS TO GET MORE VEG IN YOUR DIET (+ RECIPE)

These ideas will help even the biggest meat eater happily include more vegetables, easily, every day. I am not vegan or vegetarian but there are many reasons why I try to include as many vegetables as I can in my diet. I was once a fussy eater, and there have been plenty of vegetables that I claimed to hate over the years. But now I have legitimate cravings for vegetables… seriously (obviously amongst the chocolate ones). Sometimes I don’t know who I am anymore…

BREAKFAST SALAD

This makes for a fantastic grab and go, pre prepped for your morning rush breakfast solution. Yes salad is your breakfast solution. Because it’s acceptable to eat salad at all other times of the day so why not breakfast? I know fruit salad is a breakfast staple but I don’t really like fruit salad. It makes me think of nasty hotel breakfast buffets or syrupy concoctions. This is a savoury salad, full of greens and they typical things you might eat for breakfast – just in a  salad.

MISO BUTTER GLAZED ASPARAGUS

The first time I bit into these charred and glossy spears I swore, with pure joy. And then I went and boiled an egg because I thought that would be amazing with them and called it lunch. I ate all the asparagus (whoops, that’s apparently not a great idea…). Then I licked the bowl. These are seriously that good. And I do realise I’m talking about asparagus.
