Red Lentil & Chickpea Curry with Crispy Tofu & Kale

Let me just preface this post by saying that while I love a good curry as much as the next person, I rarely cook them at home because, well because I live in a small apartment and getting rid of the smell the next day can be quite a task! And for a self-confessed clean…

The Redemption Salad

I’m not ashamed to admit (ok maybe just a little) that I was a fat little piggy last week / weekend; eating and drinking pretty much anything and everything without any trace of remorse. That said, after stuffing my face with burgers and beer and whatever else I could get my hands on I woke…

Cheesy Quinoa Chilli Bake

Look, I don’t mean to brag guys, but I think I’ve really outdone myself with this one. I mean, what’s not to love about a big bowl of spicy, cheesy, delicious veggie goodness on a freezing winter’s night? As with most of my recipes, this one is easily adapted to suit your own personal tastes….

Creamy Cauliflower Soup

Soup weather is here! And if you’re a long-time reader of Peet Can Cook you’ll know just how much that excites me. But for any newcomers, let me just reiterate — I LOVE SOUP. Like, LOVE LOVE. That said, despite being a pretty big fan of cauliflower I’ve never actually turned it into a soup,…

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…
