Roasted Sweet Potato Salad With Harissa Chickpeas

Are you a sweet potato person? What I am asking is that when you go to a restaurant, do you look at the menu and if you spot sweet potato then that is the dish you order? Oh Yes! Me too! Sadly most cafes around here only offer sweet potato wedges (where is your sense of adventure chefs?) which I eventually always end up ordering. Cannot resist roasted sweet potato! But I am also a cauliflower, mushroom, avocado, chickpea, spinach person. If a d... Read More >>

Zucchini And Sweet Potato Slice

  When my boys were little and eating well (or even eating for that matter) was the farthest things from their minds, friends with older kids would always encourage me to have hope because they had older boys that single-handedly demolished their fridges and pantries every month. I used to smile indulgently wondering  how that could even be possible with my two. And then my first born went through a growth spurt and arrived at the thr... Read More >>

Thai Red Curry Tofu Soup With Sweet Potato Noodles

A good spiralizer can change your life. I have the Paderno brand and it is so easy to noodle the living daylights out of any veggie, that even a four year old can do it. But there is this thing. Not all veggies are four-year old friendly in terms of noodling. There is a reason why most brands show a gorgeous, perfectly primped lady spiralizing zucchinis. And not a frenzied woman, hair a wild mess, struggling to spiralize a sweet potato. Becau... Read More >>

Creamy Sweet Potato And Halloumi Pasta

I love gnocchi. And there are days when the chilly weather creeps up my spine that I will obsess about gnocchi in all shapes and sizes. But for the rest of the year, I'd take a textural pasta any day. I love tossing and pairing ingredients that will add a hefty bite to the smooth silky pasta and the creamy sauce. Like nuts, charred veggies and fried cheese. Elevated only by the zest of citrus and the billowy softness of herbs. A Italian smorgasbo... Read More >>
Slow Roasted Cauliflower Salad With Sweet Potato Hummus And Nut Dukkah - Cook Republic

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. It is THAT good! I think it might have dethroned this salad for me. Yes, I am positive, that this is my number one salad of the moment. Slow roasted cauliflower, almost sweet with the caramelisation, hints of charring on some of the florets, on a bed of the most... Read More >>

Market Veggie Strata

Dinner is served with a hearty mix and bake casserole of market fresh veggies, torn sourdough and plenty of herbs that get baked to a delicious roast goodness. Light, healthy and no-fuss make-ahead cooking at its very best. We might not be familiar with the term strata here in Australia but we definitely cook and eat it from time to time. A term coined in the realms of American cuisine, a strata is a layered casserole of sorts baked in a s... Read More >>
