Pumpkin Risotto

Pumpkin is such a great vegetable. Low in calories, but high in Beta Carotene (converted to Vitamin A in the body). One cup will provide over 100% of your recommended daily requirement. So it’s great for eye health and has so many other health benefits too ! This recipe is easy to make and will have you coming back for more!

Zucchini and Cabbage Curry

Who would have thought about putting cabbage into this recipe? I have to confess I didn’t, until I bought some local, organic cabbage and started to wonder what I could do with it. The plan was to make a zucchini curry but the cabbage was calling to be added. It compliments the zucchini really well and bulks up the curry too. This curry is so full of goodness. I hope you enjoy it.

Roasted Cauliflower Salad with a Lemon and Garlic Dressing

I looked at the ingredients I had in my fridge last weekend after my weekly veggie box delivery and decided to make a big salad with all the yummy greens. The roasted cauliflower adds ‘body’ to this salad and makes it more filling so it is perfect to have a large bowl on its own. It would also be ideal as a side salad in a smaller amount. Warning though-it is very yummy and there may not be seconds left. It may also not be advisable to eat this before an important meeting as it has a very strong garlic flavour!

Melanie’s Sunrise Cereal

Did you know that shop bought cereals are full of sugar, salt and other unrecognisable ingredients. Have a look below how easy and healthy it is to make your own cereal. Feel free to jazz it up as you wish with other fresh, frozen or dried fruit.

Lentil Bolognese

I love this meal and in fact, it is one of my staple meals for camping. It is so easy to make even the non-cook can make it! It is packed full of protein. I serve on a bed of wholegrain Kamut khorsan wheat spaghetti (available from organic and health shops) which contains a whopping 12g/100g protein. This recipe is so versatile. If you don’t have tinned tomatoes and paste, use ready made pasta sauce. If you don’t have a red capsicum, use another colour or whatever other vegetables are in the fridge!

Detox Smoothie

I made this green smoothie recipe after I’d had a particularly bad ‘food hangover’ after eating processed food-an unusual occasion in my household which I don’t want to repeat again and learnt a lot from. The smoothie is a great way to kickstart your system back into a healthy routine.

Avocado Chocolate Mousse

Who would have thought you could use avocados to make chocolate mousse? I’ve played around with this recipe alot to get the exact consistency and flavour. You’ll never be able to see anything green in there once it’s mixed up and it tastes amazing !

Green Herb Salad with a Lemon Dressing

Summer is coming in the Southern Hemisphere! This salad is simple and quick to throw together with a range of ingredients you have in your fridge. Serve as a side salad or add tofu or veggie burgers for a main meal.

Passionfruit Chia Pudding

Such a great summer recipe that can be eaten for breakfast, morning or afternoon tea or as a dessert. In fact, any time of the day ! Simple and easy to make. Just ensure you leave it in the fridge long enough to set.

Sapote and Coconut Chia Pudding

Did you know sapote is also called the chocolate pudding fruit? The chocolate taste is very subtle but it is there-natural chocolate, yum ! Sapotes are high in vitamin A and potassium. They also contain good levels of Vitamin C.
