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,…

Simple Sesame & Garlic Noodles

IMGP7390

Here at Boy Meets Girl Meets Food, we love a good noodle dish. 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:…

Beetroot Subji

My mother, while an incredible cook, rarely ventures outside of her comfort zone while cooking Indian food. However, that changed about a year ago, when she discovered the magic that is the farmer’s market. One day she came home holding a bunch of beets (literally), and out of having no idea what to do with…

Roasted Purple Carrots & Dukkah

carrots

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…

Sweetcorn Soup with Kale & Ginger

Last month I discovered a lovely corn soup recipe on 101 Cookbooks, and made it earlier this week for the second time; however this time I added quite a few tweaks to make it slightly reminiscent of Chinese sweetcorn soup, a dish I enjoyed as a child. For this soup, you will need the following: 6 cups…

Panzanella Salad

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…

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…

Bhindi Masala

Since moving back home, my mom and I have developed a special tradition of reserving Sunday afternoons for cooking. We make anything from 3-5 Indian dishes, something that she used to do alone (she’s a rockstar)! One of my long-time favourite Indian dishes was also one of the first ones I learnt how to make-…
