Roasted Cauliflower Nasi Goreng – Indonesian Fried Rice

About eight months ago, Nick welcomed the 40s and life served up a reflux and elevated cholesterol problem. It was like a switch being flipped. One minute everything was fine and the next minute, it felt like a heart attack. We later found out that it was just reflux but it was scary and prompted us to investigate the factors causing both issues. Now Nick has always been quite fit and lean, he plays soccer throughout the year and is on the go... Read More >>

Nutty Cacao Smoothie

Slow Roasted Cauliflower Salad With Sweet Potato Hummus And Nut Dukkah

I created this Cauliflower Salad more than two months ago and have been waiting silently, excitedly to share the recipe with you. I have made this at least 10 times in the past few weeks.

Slow roasted cauliflower, almost sweet with the caramelisation, hints of charring on some of the florets, on a bed of the most... Read More >>

Cauliflower Rice Biryani Salad

A few years ago when people discovered that they could do so much more with cauliflower other than bake or roast it, it was like a whole new genre of cooking opened up to discover. Cauliflower was pulsed and crumbed to mimic raw rice and form a pure veggie pizza base amongst other things. It has always been one of my favourite vegetables and a cauliflower curry was my childhood staple. I use it every chance I get right from curries to deep fr... Read More >>

Turmeric Roasted Cashews With Chia

  When the wind picks up and batters the trees that seem to swallow our little home, the leaves cascade on our roof by the cart load. With more wind, most of them blow away but the ones that block the gutters are the ones that let the water into the roof when the rain falls. From there the water makes its way via a natural slope of corrosion to a small drilled hole right above my bed in the bedroom where a baby mobile used to hang on a ... Read More >>
