Mediterranean stuffed vegetables

There's a very traditional Croatian recipe for stuffed peppers called punjena paprika, literally translated to stuffed or filled capsicums, which are filled with a mix of mince meat and rice, some kind of smoked pork like speck or pancetta, lots of seasoning and is usually served with mashed potato. It's cooked in a tomato based broth ...

Cherry strudel.

If you're after a super easy dessert tat takes almost no time at all to prepare and zero cooking ability, is low in sugar and high in flavour, and will also impress whoever you serve it to then look no further. If you're like me and tend to stock up on random ingredients you then ...

Mushroom & zucchini frittata with feta.

As a former egg hater it took frittata's to convince me that eggs were any good. I still don't eat them poached, scrambled, or fried, but a frittata packed with vegies will always be an ideal meal. After recently re-introducing eggs back into my diet this was the first thing I made, and the first ...

Spinach & ricotta stuffed portobello mushrooms

I was searching for something quick, easy, and delicious to serve alongside some BBQ the other day. Something vego that would not require too much effort on what was my lazy Sunday. And apart from a few minutes {literally, about two} spent softening the mushroom stems and one small shallot, these are as low effort ...

Mushroom rice paper rolls with garlic vinegar dipping sauce.

This dish was inspired by two things: the delicious mushroom spring rolls I recently tried at China Doll, and the heatwave conditions this Summer. Cooking dinner on a scorching hot day, even with the a/c working overtime, isn't fun. You want something that requires mere assembly rather than actual cooking, and rice paper rolls are ...

Ajo blanco

Cold soups are not usually the kind of thing I'd think of making, but every time my husband suggest one I end up loving it. Gazpacho is a regular thing in our house, especially as during the Summer we tend to have everything we need for it growing in the backyard. But this velvety pale ...

Mediterranean black bean salad

This salad is what happens when you start off making fattoush but want to leave out the bread, decide to add black beans, and then top with Greek feta. This is my most favourite kind of Summer eating, all spread out on a large platter and assembled in minutes. It's fresh and crunchy, light and ...

Summer holiday bites.

Hello 2017! It feels like we're just coming out of that holiday daze lazy feeling, or at least starting to. The last two weeks were way too indulgent, with a seeming never ending supply of chips, dips, crackers, and cheeses. My vegan-ism pretty much went to shit, with far too much of the fromage stuff ...

Christmas Day lunch.

It's not every year I get the chance to do what I love so much at Christmas time: feed lots and lots of people by cooking lots and lots of yummy dishes. Some years it's quiet and that's okay too, but I am super excited that this year we are having the kind of Christmas ...

Good stuff on toast

By good stuff I mean a bit more than jam or honey. And by toast I mean some really good chewy sourdough, preferably with seeds, toasted until golden and crunchy. The kind of toast you need a knife and fork for. Maybe something you enjoy every morning, or maybe something you indulge in on holidays ...
