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 >>

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 >>

Vegan Chickpea Masala Omelette

I was first introduced to an eggless (vegan) omelette as a child. I must've been four or five years old when mum presented Tomato Omelette one Sunday morning after I had watched the newest episode of Star Trek on telly. I actually have a very vivid memory of that day and the excitement of a new omelette variation as I was a complete and utter egg fiend and omelette was my jam. But the whole breakfast was a sham. When I tasted the omelette, it... Read More >>
