Vegan Mushroom Pesto Sandwich

Mushrooms are a constant fixture in my fridge. I have always loved mushrooms for their umami flavour and their ability to cook instantly. In fact, if mushrooms are super fresh (like at our local markets), I have been known to eat them raw on my way back home from loading my baskets with fresh produce. A fresh raw mushroom is a delightful thing, meaty and crisp and incredibly sweet! Now I buy a few bags of tiny button mushrooms (tiny white one... Read More >>

Vegan Miso Glazed Eggplant (Nasu Dengaku)

  Many years ago when we first moved to Australia from Singapore, I was on a Japanese food bender. I trawled every weekend market for the perfect Okonomiyaki and sat at many sushi trains sampling as many Agedashi Tofus, Sashimis, Inari and Nigiris as I could. But I never tried Nasu Dengaku, until one fine day when Hayden Quinn came over to my (then tiny) kitchen for a cooking and filming session. I cannot remember what I cooked, but t... Read More >>

Mushroom And Lentil Vegan Bolognese

Like this Vegan Bolognese made with an abundance of garlic, mushrooms and lentils slow simmered... 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 >>

Vegan Basil Pesto With Miso

Let's talk about why I decided to share a vegan basil pesto recipe when I already have a few basil pesto recipes on the blog that are dead simple and house favourites including one for Thai pesto (yum!). Dairy has never been a good friend of mine. I love it. I mean, I love butter and couldn't live without it! I love a splash of milk in my coffee, yoghurt, a bite of hard aged cheese every now and then and the occasional (well, more than occasi... Read More >>
