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…

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…

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…

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-…

Mana Food Bar, Wicker Park

I spent this passed weekend gallivanting around Chicago with one of my best friends, Josh. Chicago is my family’s go-to weekend vacation spot, but we rarely stray from Michigan Avenue, so I had a great time exploring Wicker Park this time around! We had dinner on Friday night at Mana Food Bar, a popular vegetarian…

Rajdhani, Artesia

rajdhani

Rajdhani, located in the heart of Little India in Artesia, is known for having some of the best Indian food in Southern California, thus it came as no surprise when my parents wanted to make the 45 minute trip out when they came to visit me for graduation weekend (yes, I graduated from college! It’s…
