I have always loved silken tofu but I’ve never used it at home. No idea why because it’s so easy! In this recipe you don’t even need to cook it and the creamy texture is so lovely with spicy mushroom sauce.
We’re getting a little trashy today! Buffalo chicken for the win. I love love love spicy things and buffalo chicken wings are the bomb. But they’re also not great for you… So I’ve tried to lighten things up a little here with a baked, not fried version of them. And they’re not wings, because I figured they weren’t going to be easy to eat in a salad bowl and this is essentially a ridiculous chicken salad.
This soup. Just, well it’s everything. If you’ve never used tortillas to thicken your soup you’ve got to do it. It’s genius as it makes it creamier without having to use cream! If a soup can be summery and still hot then this is it. It’s perfect for cities like Melbourne when you’re blessed with summer produce but there’s just as much chance of a cold 6 degree day in December as there is a 34 degree one. The toppings are out of control and the main reason for that summer vibe.
The noodle salad is made with a mixture of ribboned carrot ‘noodles’ and rice noodles. The combination of fresh and pickled vegetables with the spicy avocado dressing a tart grapefruit is so refreshing you’ll be craving this when the warm weather really sets in.
Yeah, you read that right. That word is definitely not Italian is it? But sugo is. Gochujang is a a spicy fermented bean paste from Korea. And it’s pungent sweet and spicy notes give a totally new and really interesting twist to traditional spaghetti and meatballs. I know it sounds like weird fusion cooking but it’s full of flavour and defines ‘winter warmer’.
This is a surprisingly easy breakfast or lunch as scrambled eggs take no time at all to prep. It’s also fresh and tasty and has protein, omega 3’s, vegetables and fruit in it – a super well rounded meal!
Spicy and lean chicken burgers make for a super easy any night of the week dinner. Full of protein, extra vegetables in the sauce and omega 3’s from the avocado. You can also serve them with some parsnip fries and a simple salad for a really well rounded meal.
Confession: these aren’t really nachos. They aren’t made using corn chips because when they craving took I only had some slightly less than fresh pita bread on hand. I hate waste so wanted to use it and these were born from what was in my fridge/pantry. The perfect lazy, waste free dinner and so delicious I made them 3 times in a week.
This red curry pumpkin soup is all kinds of yum and combines two of my favourite things to eat in winter: curry and soup! What could be better? Oh I know, getting a little naughty and topping it with crispy shallots and coconut cream.
Crispy, juicy, spicy finger-lickin’-chicken. This recipe is all kinds of good. The chicken is at once crispy and covered in a juicy glaze. It’s a little like eating fried chicken, but not fried, so also not like fried chicken. More like the best crispy baked chicken you will ever taste. Big call, but I’m backing myself on this one. I really like it, if you couldn’t tell.
