    Green pea risotto

    As we move into the warmer months, my body starts craving warm, nourishing foods, and risotto’s are just perfect for this occasion. The rich, creamy flavour is one that lingers on your tastebuds, plus you can add almost any veggie to it to create a new and exciting recipe. Try roast pumpkin and cranberry, beetroot and sundried tomato, or a simple mushroom and red wine. The options are endless, just replace the green peas in this recipe with whatever you choose!

    Beetroot relish

    I’m in love with the earthy, rich flavour of beetroot, and nothing beats (see what I did there…) a tasty relish to go with crackers, cheese, veggie sticks, dukkah and sourdough bread for a rustic nibbles platter. This recipe is one inspired by a few other recipes online for relishes, but iv’e adapted it to be my own. Its also beautiful spread on a piece of crusty wholegrain toast in the morning with a nice cup of tea.

    Pear, blueberry and coconut loaf

    I had a number of pears that were getting very squishy in the fruit bowl, and they really needed some TLC, so iv’e come up with this tasty pear, blueberry and coconut loaf to use up old pears. I decided on blueberries as that what I had in my freezer! This one isn’t gluten free, but i’m sure you could easily substitute out the plain white flour for gluten free flour. It is however dairy free and nut free, so could make a great kids lunchbox treat.

    Asian mince veggie cups

    I love good, quick, easy go-to snacks, and these asian mince lettuce cups are just perfect! Filled with nutrient dense veggies, and packed with protein, they are perfect for a quick brekkie before you race out the door, to grab for the kids after school, to make as a dinner party nibble, or for a summer afternoon picnic. I love the mix of carrot, capsicum, cabbage and coriander!

    Pumpkin and Chicken Tagine with Cranberries

    This recipe was created last week when I was searching for something with pumpkin and chicken in it, as it was my last day before buying groceries, those were the last two inspiring ingredients I had. However all I could find was recipes fro pumpkin and chicken curry-not exactly what I was after. Then I found a recipe for a Tagine, iv’e never made a Tagine, nor did I know what they were. But after a bit of research I discovered that a Tagine is a “historically North African dish that is named after the type of earthenware pot in which it is cooked. Moroccan tajine dishes are slow-cooked savory stews, typically…

    Banana, cacao and coffee smoothie

    Need a quick way to get your coffee and brekkie in? Well here is the answer! The banana, cacao and coffee smoothier is full of nutrients, easy to whip up when you are in a rush, and will give you that energy boost you need until you have time for a proper meal. The banana give you a tonne of fibre and vitamins, the cacao and coffee is full of antioxidants, the chia seeds give you healthy fats, and the vanilla essence is there simply for flavour. Of course, I always advocate having a full brekkie, with slow release carbs, protein and healthy fats (Think veggies with poached eggs), but…

    Raw salted caramel latte slice

    Oh. My. God. This slice is just so heavenly! You have got to try it, honestly, I think this is the best thing I have ever made. In collaboration with Yahava Coffee, i’ve come up with a few coffee inspired recipes, which my raw salted caramel latte is the first. Its full of nuts, dates, coconut, coffee and cacao, so if full of healthy fats, antioxidants and a little bit of sweetness. This is a great one to have in the freezer for when you get the afternoon sweet tooth, or is perfect for a little nibble after dinner. Just remember not to eat the whole thing at once because…

    Rainbow quinoa tabouli

    This one was a quick throw together recipe from a BBQ I attended last Friday at the in-law’s place, I was asked to make a quinoa salad, and there were some suggestions for other ingredients, so this is what I cam up with! Ended up being a hit, full of colour and nutrients. Definitely one I will make again, plus if you don’t add the dressing straight away it keeps really well in the fridge, so is perfect for meal prepping at the begging of the week (you can see it featured in my meal prepping recipe ideas post here).

    Raw cookie dough bites

    This recipe is a simple, quick and tasty one, which was inspired by my good friend Tam when we were talking about the “Raw cakes” I posted on instagram a few days ago. It inspired me to create something that was reminiscent of eating raw cake batter or nibbling on some of the raw cookie dough. Therefore: Raw cookie dough bits! Literally 5 ingredients and they take 5 minutes.

    Chickpea and coriander veggie burger

    I love summer, and I love creating new and exciting recipes to make on these hot evenings in Perth! I came up with this one a few months ago, and have been refining it ever since (recipe testing is so much fun because you get to taste ALL of your creations, lucky its usually pretty yummy!). I really enjoy substituting meat out of my meals some days, it feels lighter, its healthier, plus its helping the environment too. Maybe you could try this for meatless Monday? I serve this burger on a wholegrain bun with salad greens, tomato, cucumber and aoli, but you could also add mushrooms, onion, grilled halloumi, basil…
