Market Veggie Broth - Cook Republic #vegan #glutenfree

Market Veggie Broth

Every Thursday when I walk into my home with my baskets and jute bags full of fresh market produce, I make this broth. Like clockwork. I set my bags down, grab the Kilner jam pan (who knew it would be just perfect for big batches of stock and sauces) and fill it with 6 litres of filtered water. And because I have now been doing this every single week for the past two years, I chop veggies on automaton, toss them in the water and get the heat goin... Read More >>
Turmeric Chicken Broth - Sundays at Cook Republic

The Sunday Project – Turmeric Chicken Broth And Autumn Mornings

6 months and counting. I haven't worked in the weekend. Instead, I have reclaimed Saturdays and Sundays. I even have a sweatshirt that says Saturdays Sundays and it has become my weekend uniform (I'll post a picture next time!). Since quitting work in the weekends, I have rediscovered the excitement I felt for Sundays as a child. I never thought that would ever be possible again. Because, Sunday is really free. Truly. No strings attached. Fre... Read More >>

Salad recipe cuttings are brought out from the trusty old recipe folder and a trip to the local butcher is almost a rite of passage as most of Australia heads there to bring back some beautiful lamb to cook and share at leisurely Spring barbecues and garden ...

Easy 30 Minute Kimchi And Vegan Fish Sauce - Cook Republic

Easy 30 Minute Kimchi And Vegan Fish Sauce

Its true. I have had a slow burning, escalating obsession with kimchi for a while. Like baking bread, once you start making your own kimchi there is no turning back. I first shared a step-by-step Vegan Kimchi recipe with heaps of process and stage shots two years ago. I give away a lot of kimchi jars every year to friends and a couple of them are allergic to seafood which was why I devised a vegan recipe that called on the umami flavour of mu... Read More >>
Sticky Seared Salmon With Asian Crunch Salad - Cook Republic

Sticky Seared Salmon And Asian Crunch Salad

I cannot begin to emphasise on how important it is in my life to have a frozen bag of sustainably farmed salmon fillets in my freezer. One frozen fillet magically transforms to a most nourishing lunch in a matter of minutes when I need it most. I poach it, en papillote it or simply sear it in a hot frying pan. Regardless, it is the perfect quick fix meal for someone like me, who tends not give lunch too much weight especially on busy days. ... Read More >>
