Oh yeah. These are happening. They’re like a a coconut rough cupcake but with green vegetables in them. Yesss please. Don’t freak out about the vegetable content, it’s there to give texture and zucchini is so mild and slightly sweet so it’s a totally fine thing to put in your baked goods. No more zany than carrot cake. So if you can get around carrot cake, you can get around these.
Birthday week is doooone! And it was such a good one, if a bit of a blur. I had the Bupa Blog Awards on Thursday night and although I didn’t win it was such a pleasure to be one of the finalists and meet some crazy talented people. People like Tara from the Nutrition Guru and the Chef who was the winner of my category. But the week’s been BUSY so I’m just finishing off this post this morning thus it’s probably going to be posted a little later than usual!
When the recipe title is basically just the recipe. Whoops, probs got a little too descriptive with that one. But I couldn’t decide what the most important part was because all these things make these nachos delicious and special. Also they’re nachos so by default a pretty great time.
Not every meal needs to be a production. Sometimes all I want for lunch or dinner is just some beautiful fresh bread topped with something tasty. And these ‘shrooms are so tasty. It’s ind of like the vegetable and fancy equivalent of vegemite on toast thanks to the complex miso butter flavour.
Anyone who knows me knows that I’m dumpling obsessed. They’re not just one of my favourite things to eat but one of my favourite things to make. That’s why there’s already a few dumpling recipes on the blog. My favourites have always been my potsticker recipe but these dumplings are boiled and sooo good. Like I might even like them more… that could be more to do with that sauce though. Actually no, everything about these is a good time.
So this week is a pretty exciting week. It’s my birthday week (not that exciting post 30 tbh) and it’s also the week of the BUPA blog awards! I’m nominated in the healthy Eating category and super excited to attend the awards night this Thursday with all the other amazing nominees. I’m also typically excited for this weeks meal plans because they involve some of my favourite things like hummus, prawns, pasta, lemon and fgood you can eat from a bowl.
This salad is salty and sweet, crunchy and soft, filling but light. Basically all the things. It’s the perfect thing to serve with steamed or baked fish or even some grilled chicken. Alternatively soft boil a couple of eggs and keep it vegetarian.
This recipe makes a mini bathc of muffins, just 6 of these special delicious beauties and there’s good reason for that. They’re best eaten the day you make them. Having one fresh from the oven is pretty much a must as they’re super light and airy. They’re alos amazing as part of a brunch spread if you’re the kind of person who has friends over for breakfast. Those kinds of people are great (note to all friends, have me over for breakfast please).
This is such a simple and delicious dish, it makes a yummy light dinner just as is or with rice and extra steamed or stir fried vegetables on the side. It’s also really easy to prepare and you’re using a cheaper cut of chicken – yay for money saving!
