Peanut Soba Noodles

Hello, and welcome to a super lazy post. I made this simple peanut soba noodle dish a few weeks ago, but was initially a little hesitant to share because personally, I found it a bit on the rich side. That being said, my better half wolfed it down and gave it the thumbs up, so it really wouldn’t be…

Kale & White Bean Soup

Melbourne has been a bit of a bitch this summer, throwing curve balls left right and centre when it comes to the weather. Yes yes, I hear you say, isn’t that just standard Melbourne? Perhaps it is, but for some reason this year my beautiful city seems determined to challenge my weather-based meal planning abilities. Enter,…

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

After successfully completing my 14 day detox (all vegan, no alcohol, no caffeine, no pasta, no bread, no fun), I have to admit I was feeling a little bit tired of salad. But not wanting to just dive back in to eating whatever the hell I wanted, I decided to persevere and hunt around for…

Super Easy Wild Rice Salad

Well guys, it really doesn’t get much easier than this. Cook the rice, add the things, done. But as always, don’t be fooled by its simplicity — this dish is packed full of asian-inspired flavours and all the healthy bits, and is perfect for a delicious weekday lunch or a quick and easy dinner. You can…

Red Lentil & Quinoa Stew

It seems almost everyone has at least heard of quinoa these days, even if they haven’t got around to trying it yet. But it also seems that a lot of people don’t realise just how versatile this grain can be. Sure we can throw it in a salad, or serve it as a side in…

Rainbow Stir-fry

After much boozing, eating, and general slothing over the Christmas period, I decided to kick off 2017 with a 14 day detox. Of course, after making this decision my motivation promptly flew out the window, and I spent almost another full week being a couch-dwelling piglet before finally getting my act together and setting a firm start…

Ridiculously Good Taco Salad Bowl

I was thinking it had been a while since I made a taco salad, and after a quick look back through my recipes I discovered that the last one I made was full of chicken, so it’s definitely been well over a year. Which, clearly, is too damn long. I was inspired to make this after receiving the Thug…

Miso Fried Rice

Ok, so I’ll just come out and say that I’m really not a huge fan of rice. Give me a giant bowl of pasta any day. However, I sometimes find myself in situations where I’ve got a bunch of veggies wasting away in the fridge that are screaming for me to use them, and fried…

Black Bean & Sweet Corn Flautas

As much as I enjoy this recipe, I think sometimes I like to make it just so I can triumphantly shout, “FLAUTAS!” as I set the dish down on the table. Because, you know, scaring the shit out of my husband/cat when serving dinner has to be one of my favourite pastimes.  Ok ok, only joking. I just think it’s…

Crispy Baked Falafel

I have to say, I’m pretty mad for a good falafel, but have never actually attempted making them at home before, mainly due to the deep-fried factor. That was until I discovered this recipe on the Cookie + Kate website, and realised that my favourite chickpea treat could be made in the oven. Obviously I…

Soba Noodle Salad with Sesame Dressing & Crispy Tofu

If you know me in real life (wait, where am I?), you’ll probably know that I love a good salad, and that I have many salad-related recipes up my sleeve, ready to bust out at any given moment. What you may not know, however, is that I rarely get excited by salads, dressings and the like….

Quinoa Salad with Roasted Sweet Potato, Broccoli & Halloumi

Seems like now that we can all pronounce it correctly, we just can’t get enough of quinoa. I know I can’t, and given the demand for this particular recipe, it would appear that I am not alone. I make this salad about once a week for dinner, and have impressed a few friends of late…
