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.
It’s winter so I’m curry obsessed at the moment and after trying the most delicious prawn yellow curry at Rick Shores I wanted to go ahead and make my own. From scratch. In less than an hour, because what’s life if you don’t challenge yourself?
I had to put the word creamy in the title because otherwise this guy just screams HEALTH and I didn’t want to scare everyone off. Plus it is creamy so why wouldn’t I mention that? This curry is delicious! I’m a big fan of tofu these days and this curry comes together pretty quickly with a big punch of flavour.
This noodle soup is totally a Japanese Thai hybrid thing, and it’s amazing. Like all my noodle, soup, and curry dreams coming true.
When I say chicken stir fry I mean chicken and vegetable. And probably mostly vegetable. Because I really do see stir fry as a chance to eat as many delicious vegetables as possible. Using curry paste as the base of a sauce for a stir fry is so fantastic as it gets rid of so much of the prep time and delivers big on flavour!
This curry is like a love child between ramen broth and a coconut curry. I wanted the curry ‘gravy’ to have that flavour bomb thing going on that you get with ramen but to be served over rice like a curry. And wait for it… I cooked tofu in a pan not the oven for once! Turns out I can let go of my safety net!
It’s always a good time for curry and this one is so quick and simple to do. Plus it’s full of flavour like all good curries. And just look at the bright yellow colour!
My new thing is using curry pastes and a little stock or coconut cream to create the flavour and sauce. It’s so quick and easy and packs a huge flavour punch! You can make your own paste and freeze in portions or keep in the fridge if you plan on using it quickly, or just buy one. So many options to make your life tasty, healthy and easy.
Yes I realise we’ve just had a heatwave of a weekend. But it’s cooled down a little now, and it’s winter in the other half of the world so I know some of you are going to feel like curry. Personally, I always feel like curry. I don’t think it’s just winter comfort food as a lot of countries that serve curry as a staple are typically warm balmy year round weather places. So this is summer appropriate. Plus it’s so friggin good. It’s my favourite dahl, creamy and fragrant and really easy to make.
