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,…

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. This dish, leveraging off that delicious nutty, seedy, spicy blend – Dukkah, is both tasty and simple to make….

IMGP7400

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.

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:…

Top Paddock holds the kind of brunch notoriety reserved for LA’s top West Hollywood spots- which made it the perfect spot for a reunion with my old LA work manager! When we arrived on a Sunday morning the place was practically bursting at the seams with eager eaters, waiting to be seated. After an extended…

When Rue & Co (the popup eatery on Collins Street featuring Kong, Jimmy Grants and St. Ali) first opened up, I meandered over to Kong for some chicken wings and never looked back. So I was delighted to head over to Kong the full restaurant in Richmond earlier this week, and needless to say, it…

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…

Fudgy Dulce De Leche Brownies

imgp6850

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…
