Pineapple salsa

pineapple-salsa

It's Getting Hot in Herre! (but you can leave your clothes on if you want). Either way, it's time to bust out some salsas. SALSA, people, is one of the reasons I exist. There is nothing I don't like about a salsa. Nothing. Pineapple salsa is a bit of a new one for me, I wasn't even aware of the … [Read more...]

Samosas for president

manjus-vegetable-samosas-2

This is a sponsored post for Woolworths I’m a bit of a cooking show connoisseur, truth be told, and I actually very seriously considered entering Recipe To Riches back when they did a call-out for contestants. I spent a little while trying to figure out what I could make a huge batch of that would … [Read more...]

Meatless Monday: Vegan San Choi Bau

vegan-san-choi-bau

  Here's something I'd always wanted to make, but shoved it into the "one day" category (a lot of things are in there, I'm afraid to look! I slam the door and run...). It involved having iceberg lettuce to hand, which I rarely buy, and also sorting out a minced meat substitute for the … [Read more...]

Baked brie with garlic and fig jam

garlic-baked-brie

I can't believe it took me so long to try this simple but sinful dish for myself. Ooey gooey cheese? What's not to love? It did seem a bit decadent for one person's lunch, but I had just been watching a documentary on French cheesemaking and the host tucked into a little melty wheel of brie with … [Read more...]

eggplant-and-lentil-balls-green

This  is a sponsored post for Woolworths I have to say, that as a vegetarian, the choice of ready-made meals and grab-and-go prepared items have been pretty thin on the ground for the last few years although it's getting better. While I like making my own items, it is unarguably handy to have … [Read more...]

Kale chips

 Pin ItOk so I jumped on the kale chip bandwagon. All the cool kids were doing it.And you know what? I'm glad I did. Because this stuff is awesome. Kale grows so damn fast in my garden, and only just faster than the bugs that eat it. So I have to do something with it, and chips fit the bill … [Read more...]

Easy peasy rice paper rolls

The easiest rice paper rolls ever!

Sure these rice paper rolls are super-simple, but if you've never made them before, you might shy away thinking they're too fiddly. They're not. They're SO not. All you need is a bit of bench space, some pre-sliced veggies and pre-soaked rice noodles and you're ready to roll. You could add … [Read more...]

Baked ravioli bites

Pin ItI am starting to think about bite-size food a lot more now that Veggie Baby is eating solids. And while she's a little way off eating these gorgeous cheesy bites, it doesn't mean you have to be! A fun weekend dinner for your kiddies, or even an appetiser or cocktail party food with a … [Read more...]

Homemade Vegetarian Sausage Rolls

veggie sausage rolls, meatless sausage rolls

Sometimes there is just nothing cuter than a guy in love. I'm such a sap that when I hear or see people being kind and generous to their special someones, but what gets my heart a-melting is when he or she is proud of their partner. I feel sorry for anyone Veggie Dad has cornered on a club-going … [Read more...]

Crazy Vegas and the Deep Fried Pickle.

Two insanely amazing things happened to me when we were in Las Vegas last year. I found out I was pregnant. I ate my first fried pickle. I blame/thank my dad for getting me started on the whole pickle train. He and I used to eat canned cucumber slices straight from the tin when I was a … [Read more...]
