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…

Spicy Breakfast Wrap

Um, guys, would you look at me go? I’m on a freak’n breakfast roll! Well, wrap actually, if you wanna get technical about it.  But whatever. CHECK OUT MY BREAKFAST. Yes, it tasted as good as it looks, and I’m about to tell you how you too, can soon be enjoying this tasty breakfast treat….

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…

On Toast: Avocado

If there’s a better breakfast than avocado on toast out there, I’d love to hear about it. Actually, scratch that — I don’t even need to know, because for me, nothing can possibly beat it. I can be found happily munching away on creamy, toasty goodness at least a few times a week, making slight…

Red Pepper Hummus

Who doesn’t love a good dip? Right? And rocking up at a party with something homemade is a sure-fire way to earn a few extra brownie points. Don’t be that guy who turns up with the giveaway ‘just stopped at the shops’ plastic bag and the packet of Samboy’s. Unless of course you were indeed…
