Vegan Scrambled  Spice Eggs (Tofu And Turmeric Scramble)
Vegan Scrambled Spice Eggs (Tofu And Turmeric Scramble)

A lot has happened in the chicken coop in the past two years. We first brought home three Isa Brown hens in late 2011 - Mario, Luigi and Yoshi. A year later we added the majestic black Australorp Toad to the family. Then in 2014, we lost Mario, Yoshi and Toad...

Baileys Salted Dark Chocolate Panna Cotta
Baileys Salted Dark Chocolate Panna Cotta

Imagine a dinner party set at a long, vintage table with crystal goblets and crackled plates amidst tall flickering candles, their flame bouncing off a bejeweled low hanging chandelier. Imagine a glorious dessert platter of shimmying, jiggling, wickedly deliciously...

Barker's Blackcurrant Chia Nourish Shake
Barker's Blackcurrant Chia Nourish Shake

A cold front is moving across Australia this week bringing flurries of snow, bone chilling winds and much talk and excitement about the crazy weather. Because we needed something to talk about after tsk tsk-ing autumn’s no show just a month ago. It may be the perfect...

Thai Red Curry Tofu Soup With Sweet Potato Noodles
Thai Red Curry Tofu Soup With Sweet Potato Noodles

A good spiralizer can change your life. I have the Paderno brand and it is so easy to noodle the living daylights out of any veggie, that even a four year old can do it. But there is this thing. Not all veggies are four-year old friendly in terms of noodling. There is...

Okra Masala Stir-Fry
Okra Masala Stir-Fry

One of our local market stalls is run by an Indian family. And because of that, they seem to have a never ending supply of okra most of which is depleted after I visit their stall every Thursday. You either love okra or hate it. Like Brussels Sprouts. Your affection...

Roasted Broccoli And Coconut Salad With Turmeric Dressing
Roasted Broccoli And Coconut Salad With Turmeric Dressing

Do you remember the time as a kid when the most exciting part of your day was if your mum or dad allowed you to place a pillow on your chair and sit on it at the dinner table, instantly making you heaps taller (and unconquerable)? How special were simple days like...

Matcha Coconut And Chia Pudding
Matcha Coconut And Chia Pudding

My love for matcha is legendary. At least here on the blog. An acquired taste, matcha is the fine ground powder of a specially grown green tea. Grown in the shade away from direct sunlight, the tender leaves of the green tea are grown for a mere three weeks before...

Passionfruit Cordial And Weekend Reading List
Passionfruit Cordial And Weekend Reading List

I am amazed that we still have a steady trickle of plump passion fruit at the markets. I am also amazed that we are still wearing skirts and tank tops when autumn has almost gone. Maybe the two are related. Maybe it was the wrong year to buy a very chic, very warm...

Easy 30 Minute Kimchi And Vegan Fish Sauce

If you thought making a batch of kimchi at home was hard and time-consuming, think again! With my 30-minute recipe (and the additional fermenting time of course!) for making authentic kimchi that tastes just like the real thing AND is also vegan, you will be making a...

Grilled Buttered Corn And Barbecue Spice Rubs
Grilled Buttered Corn And Barbecue Spice Rubs

The augment of autumn often translates to camping season here in Australia. There is something about a slight chill in the air and the leaves falling that makes us want to jump into a car crammed with our life possessions, tow bar burgeoning under the weight of...

Grapefruit Lime And Anise Granita
Grapefruit Lime And Anise Granita

You need a tin of this in the dark recesses of your freezer. Trust me. It is the most divine icy treat you will ever taste. The flavour of grapefruit (bitter, tart, mouthy) is a match made in heaven for the flavour of star anise (sweet, soft, delicate). Together they...

Nutty Cacao Smoothie
Nutty Cacao Smoothie

I have been a smoothie drinker for about four years now. On some days in the week, I will sneak in a smoothie mid-morning after my breakfast. And although green smoothies are nice and I will create a delicious glass once in a while, I am not fanatic about them. I feel...
