Ras el Hanout BBQ chicken

It's no exaggeration to say that buying a new BBQ late last year has transformed our cooking. We opted for a gas model made by leading BBQ brand Weber, despite everyone saying no! not gas! don't do it! it tastes shit! But after twenty years with a charcoal BBQ which was a huge pain in the ...

Spinach & ricotta stuffed portobello mushrooms

I was searching for something quick, easy, and delicious to serve alongside some BBQ the other day. Something vego that would not require too much effort on what was my lazy Sunday. And apart from a few minutes {literally, about two} spent softening the mushroom stems and one small shallot, these are as low effort ...

Mushroom rice paper rolls with garlic vinegar dipping sauce.

This dish was inspired by two things: the delicious mushroom spring rolls I recently tried at China Doll, and the heatwave conditions this Summer. Cooking dinner on a scorching hot day, even with the a/c working overtime, isn't fun. You want something that requires mere assembly rather than actual cooking, and rice paper rolls are ...

Sweet potato & chickpea salad with tahini dressing.

This is the perfect meal, especially in the warmer months. Easily changeable for whatever veg you might prefer or have to hand {pumpkin, asparagus, baby potatoes, and eggplant would work really well}, and filling enough all on it's own. Quick too, just an assembly job once the sweet potato and pine nuts are ready. VEGAN ...

Why quinoa salad is the best thing since sliced bread*.

*LITERALLY. And I don't use that word lightly.  Quinoa. It burst seemingly out of nowhere, ready to puzzle us with it's hard to pronounce name {kwin-oh-wah???} and apparent similarity to that ubiquitous 80's favourite, couscous {or as my oldest son is fond of saying, the food so nice they named it twice}, and being loudly ...


Zucchini fritters

There's an old recipe here for corn fritters, which originally started life as zucchini fritters. But since the cafe happened I make them A LOT, and I have tweaked my original recipe to make them even quicker to make and tastier! So here's zucchini fritters 2.0. I like to serve it with a tomato salsa ...

Zucchini Slice

Another recipe to file under "how did it take me so long to make this?" I remember working in a deli many years ago where they sold a very ordinary looking zucchini slice. They ordered it in cheap and sold so much that they could barely keep up with demand. I wasn't much of an ...

Homemade Granola

  I've been making my own granola ever since I tried Sarah Wilson's amazing Coco-Nutty Granola recipe when I first embarked on the I Quit Sugar journey. And despite many lapses I still prefer a homemade granola for breakfast any day of the week. It's delicious, filling, and all kinds of good for you. I ...

Travelling around the world the foodie way.

One of the definite pluses to having up to eight people to cook for most nights is the fact that sometimes you have a great excuse to go all out. Especially when it comes to the style of eating usually referred to as shared plates.  Whether it's Spanish tapas, Middle Eastern mezze, or an Asian banquet, ...


I was seriously late to the gozleme party, but boy am I glad I finally made it. Seeking something new that required some effort after some lazy days in the kitchen I came across these pan fried pockets of goodness. Having a look through some cookbooks as well as online it soon became clear that ...
