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,…

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…

Happy 2014! Apologies for being off-the-grid for so long- we recently moved into a new place and are lacking internet for the foreseeable future. However I just discovered a lovely coffee shop up the road with wifi, so we’re back! Since the standard New Years resolution tends to involve some sort of get fit/get healthy/diet…

Here’s a simple salad that will have the taste buds tingling. Hot, salty, sweet, sour and a perfect palate cleanser for a Massaman curry or any other Thai curry for that matter.  If you want to bulk out this salad, tearing up some baby spinach works a treat.  I served it alongside a massaman curry,…

Beetroot, Feta & Raspberry Salad

beetsalad

Spotting some baby beets in the fruit and veg shop with the crisp leaves still attached, I knew I had to make myself a salad.  Beetroot leaves are perfectly edible and buying a bunch with the leaves still attached gives you two vegetables for the price of one. The small, tender leaves can be eaten…
