Recipe: Cauliflower & Corn Soup

Melbourne has been teasing us recently with some days of beautiful sunshine, before descending straight back into winter with pouring rain and freezing temperatures. Even though I’m hanging out for Spring I am making the most of the weather by having winter warming meals like this cauliflower and corn soup. It’s full of flavour and is particularly delicious served with crusty bread sitting by an open fire. A heater works well too though!

Recipe: Pumpkin & Chilli Israeli Couscous

I went through a phase a while ago when I was using Israeli (or pearl as it’s also known) couscous all the time, then all of a sudden I just stopped buying it for no particular reason. Over the last few weeks I have seen a lot of recipes pop up on blogs I follow, so decided it was about time I restocked the cupboard and reignited my love for Israeli couscous. If you haven’t used it before it’s a much larger grain than standard couscous and puffs up in size when cooked, but it’s just as quick and easy to prepare as standard couscous. I just find it tastier!

Recipe: Banana Coconut Biscuits

After making biscuits using quinoa flakes a few weeks ago I decided it was time to try a slightly different recipe and use some of the desiccated coconut I had sitting in the cupboard. These turned out really tasty and aren’t overly sweet so make a great morning snack with a cup of tea. I used coconut sugar but if you don’t have any brown sugar (or a liquid like agave syrup) will work as well.

Recipe: Miso Sesame Greens

This recipe is all about the dressing – a tangy, salty, delicious concoction that works equally well on a salad as it does a stir-fry, or as I have used it here to dress up some simple steamed greens. The best part is it can be whipped up in mere minutes so you can have dinner on the table in a flash on those nights where slaving over the stove just doesn’t seem appealing. Perfect!

Recipe: Apple Slice

I found myself with a pile of apples at home so decided I should turn them into something to share with my housemates. I ummed and ahhed for a while and eventually decided to make a batch of apple slice. I kept it light on the sugar front so the fruity flavour of the apple could be the star of the show, with the light pastry happily holding it all together. Despite the fact I’m not very confident with pastry (so I keep avoiding making it, thus remaining not confident making it!) this turned out really nicely and was a simple, delicious way to use a pile of apples.
