Miso Roasted Eggplant

IMGP9484

Over Easter, we traveled back to Adelaide to visit Alex’s parents (and raid the veggie patch, of course!) We picked tomatoes, butternut squash, figs, and the most wonderfully sweet eggplants we’ve ever had. We decided to make our version of one of my favourite eggplant dishes- miso eggplant. Our version is full of ginger and chili,…

Jamie Oliver’s Chicken in Milk

IMGP7549

So as you all know, chicken plays a prominent role in our household. While I have finally learnt to love fish, it is less accessible in our neighborhood than chicken, so we find ourselves with the bird more often than not. Sunday Roast is something that I’ve never been able to get fully on board…

So, if you haven’t noticed – WE. COOK. A. LOT. OF. CHICKEN!  Being limited in choice with old Priya floating around the house means I’ve gotta think up new and wonderful ways to make chicken exciting.

Earlier this week, we were lucky enough to receive some sauces from Roza’s Gourmet Sauces- a family-owned company based in Brisbane that makes all-natural, gluten-free delights.

However, I often find that they can become quite heavy and drowned out with sauces, so yesterday I set about making a light and simple noodle dish (to accompany a special recipe coming tomorrow!). For this dish, you will need the following:…

Fudgy Dulce De Leche Brownies

If you’re gonna make something unhealthy, why not step it up and make it even worse?! Or as I like to think, even better.. I don’t like my brownies too sweet, so I cut back on the sugar content to offset the sweetness of the Dulce de Leche, but if you like sickly sweet, then…

Roasted Purple Carrots & Dukkah

This simple side dish will liven up any meal.  A drizzle of honey prior to roasting will help bring out the sweetness of the carrots, and the sprinkling of Dukkah to finish takes it to a whole new level – undoubtedly, these carrots will be the first to go off the table. Feel free to…

Harissa Spiced Freekeh with Honey Roasted Vegetables

freekeh

Late last year, I discovered a lovely grain that is now being hailed as a leader in 2014’s round of new ‘superfoods’- freekeh. Freekeh is a grain slightly similar to barley, but it can be a bit fiddly to cook with- the first time we used it we were a little freaked out by the…

Homemade Dukkah

*Ahem*.. you there.. yes, you Internet people – let me start by apologising for my utter laziness in regards to posts and commend Priya on picking up the slack, where would I be without her I wonder..? Probably eating steak and chips in front of the TV, but I digress.  Starting a new job has…

Alex and I are always whining about how we can never find good (or even mediocre) stock at the grocery store, so last week I finally bit my tongue and made some stock myself! To make your own homemade stock, you will need the following: – one chicken carcass – two large carrots – four…
