Three-Cheese Scrolls

cheese-scrolls

I got a bit overexcited when I received a breadmaker as a Christmas gift. While I still haven't nailed a good loaf of bread in it, I have been totally putting it through its paces kneading endless amounts of dough for me. We've been making pizza on the regular, and these scrolls too. I've taken them to meetings when it's my turn to bring a plate, … [Read more...]

Meatless Monday – sweet chilli grilled tofu wrap

tofu-wrap-lunch

I love wraps 90,000,000 times more than sandwiches, no matter how hard I try. Even though they drip all over me and occasionally split as I greedily stuff it full of crunchy salad goodness.

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 perfectly. They are crispy and salty and not bitter, like … [Read more...]

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 anything you like to these babies, but I tend to … [Read more...]

The secret to making fluffy banana pikelets

easy, fluffy banana pikelets

Pikelets are one of the first things I learned how to make, besides scones and spaghetti bolognese. Over the years I've experimented until I came up with the fluffiest pikelets ever - because I was sick of the little dough coasters I kept churning out. I kept eating them though, having a layer of cream thicker than the pikelet itself, but I'd eat … [Read more...]
