Easy Pumpkin and Fennel Risotto

fall recipes, pumpkin recipes, pumpkin risotto, fennel risotto, baked pumpkin, easy risotto

When there's fennel in my veggie order, I am ashamed to say I pretty much do the same thing with it. Every time. It's so good roasted though, so nobody complains (yet). Paired with roasted root veg - well, who's going to turn their nose up at a pumpkin and fennel risotto? Especially if it's easy! Not me, anyway. I love risotto. In fact, I … [Read more...]

Chipotle Lentil Rice Tacos


This is a sponsored post for SunRice. “I wonder how many lentils I’ve ever eaten in all my life?” I’ll always fondly remember this humble pulse as the staple diet of my favourite 80s pals The Young Ones. Neil the hippie was forever trying to make their student dollar stretch by eating boring health food everyone hated, like lentils and … [Read more...]

Pumpkin and Spinach Lasagne


Yeah yeah, I know - I have a thing for pumpkin lasagne. I can't help it, it's so damn good. As is using up a whole bunch of spinach or kale or silverbeet in one go with pumpkiny, cheesy surrounds. Now don't do what I did here in all my brilliance, and have lasagne sheets on the bottom. They will go hard and they will be impossible to eat. I … [Read more...]

Sundried Tomato Mac and Cheese


I don't think there's ever been a situation where I haven't liked mac and cheese. Well, there might be those years when I was a toddler and all I ate was Weet-Bix (sounds familiaaaaaar), but in all the years I've been conscious of cheese, I've loved mac and cheese. Having said that, I'm pretty sure I've never made it with actual macaroni. I … [Read more...]

Cauliflower and Leek Soup


As most of my recipes seem to be, this one for cauliflower and leek soup is a happy accident. Halfway between the "shit, I'm making a white bean soup and we have no white beans" to "no problem, I'll make potato and leek soup" to "aaaaaaand we don't have enough leeks for that and nobody wants to eat mashed potato soup" to "bingo!" when I found a … [Read more...]

Spinach Alfredo Pizza

pizza with alfredo sauce

I have a brand-new obsession, and it takes the form of a creamy, cheesy sauce on a crispy-yet-chewy pizza. Holy hallelujah, it is insane. I'm a bit iffy with pizza, I think owing to the fact I don't really like tomato-based sauces. And when everyone's slapping that shit all over pizza, you can imagine I can really take it or leave it. But one … [Read more...]

Roasted pumpkin and fennel lasagna


  Now, far be it for me to dictate how to live your life, but please don't make this lasagna with butternut pumpkin. I'm going to go so far as to say don't make anything with butternut pumpkin ever, because it's a bit... lacking in flavour, to be polite. Ok, fuck politeness, eating butternut pumpkin is like eating a picture of butternut … [Read more...]
