I have cultivated a patch of Nettles in my veggie garden and a few Sunday’s ago I  saw a recipe in the Independent by Susan Jane White for Nettle Soup so decided to make it and finally use up some of my fast growing Nettles. I did manage to sting my leg with them, but […]

MISO COD

by in Recipes April 21, 2020

I love Miso Cod when I am eating out in a Japanese Restaurant, so wanted to make it at home.  For my first attempt I was pretty pleased with it, it was extremely tasty!!! It does take a few days marinating so you have to plan it in advance!! Combine the Mirin and Gin (or […]

MISO FRIED RICE

I made Miso Cod and wanted something to serve it with, so made some Fried Rice with a Miso-Lemon Sauce and it went together very nicely. I used some Rainbow Swiss Chard (Silverbeet) and some Purple Sprouting Broccoli from my garden and added what other vegetables I had in the fridge.  Feel free to use […]

DELICIOUS FLATBREADS – GLUTEN FREE !!

This is a really simple but delicious recipe for Flatbreads.  I make it with Gluten Free flour and they work out perfectly.   Combine the Flour and Baking Powder in a large bowl.  Add in the yoghurt and mix until the yoghurt has absorbed the flour.  You may not need all the Yoghurt, so only […]

SCORCHED AUBERGINE SALAD

by in Recipes April 10, 2020

Another Salad to add to the list  –  delicious !!!   You need to scorch the Aubergines until the skin is black and the flesh inside is soft.  I did mine on a BBQ, but you can also do it successfully under the grill.  You do need the skin to be black, as this is […]

SAUERKRAUT – FERMENTED CABBAGE

by in Recipes April 9, 2020

Sauerkraut is fermented cabbage.  During the fermentation process live bacteria are produced and these live bacteria are beneficial probiotics for your digestive system.   Probiotics help balance the bacteria in your digestive system, by introducing friendly bacteria which your gut likes.   Sauerkraut is a good form of dietary fibre.  It also contains Vitamins C and K […]

IRISH STEW – MY VERSION !!

Tomorrow is St Patrick’s Day so I thought I would make a big pot of Irish Stew.   This is my version, so I don’t know what purists would think of it, but as I am Australian I can get away with it !!! My elderly in-laws are in self imposed isolation with the Corona Virus […]

I had some Salmon fillets in the fridge and then on Saturday Lilly Higgins in the Irish Times had a delicious sounding recipe for Olive Oil Roasted Salmon so I thought I would try it for Sunday nights dinner.  Lilly suggested serving it with Cauliflower Puree but I served it with Stir Fried Green Vegetables.  […]
