Rainbow Veggie Coconut Dal

It is a bloody miracle that I haven't shared a dal recipe on the blog for a while now, considering I am cooking dals every week (much to my boys annoyance!). The last time I shared some delicious wholesome dal recipes, I received so many messages asking for more. Who knew, cheap dal dinners was a regular old thing - and not just in my home! So today, I am sharing another of my this-is-the-dal-i-want-to-eat-everyday obsessions. A Rainbow Veggie Co... Read More >>

Mushroom And Lentil Vegan Bolognese

A few years ago, I started converting a lot of our regular traditional meat recipes to vegetarian (often vegan) flavour packed versions. It was simply to get the boys to eat more plant-based meals and open up their minds to healthier options. Little did I know that we would actually end up loving the vegetarian versions more than the original ones. Like this Vegan Bolognese made with an abundance of garlic, mushrooms and lentils slow simmered... Read More >>

Noodle Free Pad Thai

A traditional pad thai is one of my favourite things to eat. But it does take a bit of work. And needs to be enjoyed straight away as it has a tendency to get gluggy and sticky because of the rice noodles. Now imagine if there was a pad thai recipe that had all those nutty, sweet, sour, salty and spicy flavours but was extremely fresh and crisp and required absolutely no cooking. A noodle free pad thai! A healthy meal prep dream! Are you exci... Read More >>

It is highly covetable especially if you want to cook and eat a more vegetarian diet as it allows you to use the endless varieties of beans and lentils sitting in your pantry to create delicious meals. A Multi Cooker that can pressure cook*, sl... Read More >>

Vegan Samosa And Green Chutney Wraps And A Rotimatic Review

Rotis are unique to the Indian subcontinent - a small bread plate sized round, thin, soft flatbread made with just three ingredients – whole wheat flour, water, oil. The perfect vessel for scooping curries and daals.  Making rotis is a time consuming and often frustrating exercise especially for novice cooks. You knead the dough, roll out the rotis and then (try to) perfectly roast them (using a combination of a hot pan and open fire). The go... Read More >>

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 >>
