Gimme all the pasta always. And this pasta has so many of my favourite flavours in it in a delicious harmonious mix. The sauce is enriched with olive oil and coats the pasta so that every bite is flavoursome joy. And the fried capers. The fried capers are like salty and sharp bread crumbs make every one of those bites incredible.
This dish was a happy accident. I made a kale and lemon pappardelle, and then accidentally left the pan on with the leftovers in it. The pasta got all golden and crispy on the bottom, as did he make and the Parmesan melted through it and it was BETTER. A few other changes later and we have the beautiful, wholesome and easy to make skillet ‘lasange’.
These bowls are filled with different vegetables, textures and flavours. Not to mention that perfectly cooked ocean trout. And that coriander yoghurt is my new obsession. I want to eat it with everything! The other day i just spread it on toast, is that weird? Don’t care, it tasted so good!
Winter salads are a lunch staple for me. If you didn’t notice by my onslaught of salad posts on the blog at the moment. This one has lovely mellow flavours happening and can be eaten hot or cold. Also it has macadamias and a burnt butter dressing going on. You know that’s going to be good.
Poke. Not the thing you used to do on Facebook. The Hawaiian fish salad that can be combined with all sorts of other things to make a sort of deconstructed sushi bowl. This is my rather free interpretation of it. It has honestly become one of my favourite things to eat, easy, filling and nourishing PLUS it can be endlessly varied to suit your tastes and mood. Perfect.
This is the kind of smoothie that’s leaning into milkshake territory… but without all the added sugar. It’s like a Reeses peanut butter cup, only filled with things that are good for you and totally appropriate for breakfast! Plus it’s full of protein to make you strong (and full!).
I love a rice bowl. And this one is a dream. Crispy brown rice, flavoured with lime, green chilli and coriander and topped with all the green things and an egg. You can play around with what green stuff you add depending on the season or just what’s in your fridge. You’ll probably find you’re putting all sorts of stuff on top of this rice because it’s basically the bomb.
I could not think of a name for this to save myself. It has roasted pumpkin, crispy kale, caramelised pecans, salty feta, massaged kale and wild rice all in a lemony dressing. It’s ridiculous, addictively good stuff. And it’s a salad, how many salads are addictive? Salads with crunchy, salty and sweet notes definitely are. Everything in this salad is so good and different and balanced it makes you want to keep going back for more.
I think everyone might have their own green smoothie recipe by now… and I’m sure you love your go to but I wanted to share mine. It doesn’t taste grassy or like kale at all but it’s full of it. I also love that vibrant green colour it goes – you just feel like your drinking health haha. And you are, this one has tons of vitamins and minerals, essential fats and fibre. Most importantly this tastes delicious.
