Is that title too long? I mean I could have listed every ingredient and made it even longer. This is me showing restraint. I’m clearly great at it! This salad is a trans seasonal dream, just like our current Melbourne weather. it’s got some beautiful late winter vegetables mixed with spring goodness and all tied together with that golden haloumi.
That whole gut makeover month really reignited a love of blue cheese for me. And wholesome, hearty salads like this one. Golden chicken breast? Yes please! With sticky sweet potato and all the bitter leaves… yum! All finished with creamy blue cheese that melts onto the warm chicken and vegetables. Now we’re really talking.
I don’t eat burgers as often as I would secretly like to, so when I do I want them to be really worthwhile. Full of flavour and super satisfying. This burger has all of that and is also full of wholesome ingredients.
This is a very summery couscous salad made super delicious with… HALOUMI. Because cheese if life and haloumi is so golden and salty and delicious. It’s one of my favourite cheeses because of how it is transformed in heat. It also takes this salad from side dish to lunch by adding a little extra protein to satisfy.
I’ve loved twice baked potatoes since I was a kid. Whenever I was sick they’d be the thing I’d want as soon as I could eat. It’s the soft mashed filling and slightly crispy exterior. And all the extra flavour.
How good are sweet potato fries? Do you know how you make them better? Load them with yumminess like they’re nachos and dig in, that’s how. I love this recipe, it’s super simple and super delicious – just how food should be.
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.
Sometimes all I want is a toasted sandwich. Comfort food ya know? But comfort food doesn’t need to be a total nutritional loss. This sandwich has all the melted cheese and golden bread of your dreams, but with a home made hot and spicy chutney filled with vitamins A, C and E to name but a few. Add in that handful of greens for freshness and a side salad and you have yourself a meal you can be proud of.
