Ingredient: olive oil

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!

Tomato and Basil Soup

This soup is so quick and easy to make (especially if you already have cooked rice in the fridge waiting to be used up!) It is also a really cheap meal that the whole family will enjoy all year round. I used a mix of large and cherry tomatoes so go with whatever you can find-it will be just as good!

Kale Pesto

Most shop bought pesto contain cheese. I don’t understand why as it is so unncessary. I finally found a vegan pesto but it had so much oil in it. So I decided to experiment with my own and am totally in love with this recipe. Can be made smooth or chunky depending on your taste.
Serve as a main course with pasta, potatoes or roast veggies stirred through or use as a dip and serve with crackers and veggie sticks such as carrots and celery.

Dairy Free Pesto

A quick and easy recipe to throw together in your blender. Go and pick the basil from your garden and throw it into a blender with some nuts, oil and garlic. Nothing else is needed. This recipe is also dairy free because who says pesto needs cheese!

Hummus

An easy to make snack with ingredients readily available in your pantry and fridge. It can be served with crackers or chopped veggie sticks such as cucumber, capsicum, carrots and celery. It is also a great addition on top of baked potatoes!

Red Lentil and Mixed Bean Dahl

I’ve been working on my dahl recipe for ages.There has been a lot of tweaking to get it ‘just right’ and I finally feel that this is it! This is a wonderful, healthy, hearty meal which is great especially in winter. I usually make a big pot of it as it freezes really well. You can use any vegetables that you have in the house and the spiciness can be adjusted to suit the individual. Enjoy!

Celery Leaf Pesto

Ever wondered what to do with celery leaves? So did I, so I experimented in the kitchen and came up with a new pesto recipe. This is quick and easy to make and will keep for a few days in the fridge. I doubt it will last this long as it is great to have on hand as a healthy snack and will disappear in no time!
