I made this Teriyaki Tofu Rice Bowl the other night. It is quite mild in flavour but tasty in a comforting way. Firstly make pickled onion and radish accompaniment – finely slice 1 small white onion and 4 small radishes. Sprinkle over 1/2 teaspoon good quality salt (Maldon or Himalayan Pink Salt are good) and […]
I am normally not a smoothy person, I prefer to eat my food rather than drink it. However my daughter made this smoothy for us this morning and it is delicious. Because it has texture it feels more substantial and it is very satisfying. It contains 1/4 pineapple, 2 handfuls of baby spinach, 1 kiwi, […]
I made a delicious pumpkin seed pesto to go with our lunch today. Two handfuls of pumpkin seeds, toasted in the frypan. Three cloves of garlic. Large handful of basil leaves. Approx 1 tablespoon olive oil. Large chunk of Parmesan cheese (about three fingers sized), grated and a little water to loosen it up. I […]
Lunch in Bondi Beach Sydney. More options to try at home (not to replicate exactly, more to give ideas for flavour combinations). The closest dish in the photo was delicious. Roast new potatoes, sauted red onion and spinach, steamed broccoli florets, chunky tomato relish, pan fried halloumi slices, poached egg with hollandaise and paprika sprinkled […]
Idea’s to try at home !!!!! Brunch in Port Fairy Victoria. Spanish eggs with Pumpkin. A delicious stew of onion, garlic, red peppers, corn, fresh tomato, pinch of cumin and some chilli for heat. Topped with roast pumpkin, two poached eggs, feta, basil leaves and beetroot crisps. It was delicious and very filling.
I recently made a vegetable quiche for dinner using Quinoa flour for the pasty base. The Quinoa flour gave the pastry a sort of nutty flavour which was good. Using Quinoa flour made this pastry gluten and wheat free, and Quinoa is a good source of protein. The filling can easily be made dairy free […]
Here is another quinoa recipe, quite similar to the last one I posted, except this is vegetarian and has a teriyaki flavour. Also being in a rented house the utensils are limited, so I cooked it slightly differently and I think the result is actually better. This quantity fed the two of us with leftovers […]
Happy New Year Everyone ! I hope 2018 brings you all a very happy, healthy and safe year ahead. I am back in Melbourne (until Easter) after spending three weeks in gorgeous Noosa Heads in Queensland. I am back in my home town as my daughter (who is in Transition Year) is spending one term […]
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Australia. I have been in Melbourne for the last week and head off to Noosa Heads in Queensland tomorrow for Christmas and New Year. Will post some recipes and photos in the coming weeks.
As promised, a recipe using cooked quinoa. An easy mid week tasty quick dinner. Add sliced chicken breast (allow one per person) to thai red curry paste (enough to cover the chicken well) and marinade chicken for a few hours. Saute chopped pineapple in 1 1/2 tablespoons of coconut oil. When caramelised, take out of […]
