Recipe: Rainbow Quinoa Salad

Even though the weather has cooled down I’m still making up big salads for my work lunches as I find them super satisfying no matter what. Plus, it helps me pretend it’s slightly warmer than it really is! This salad was created because I knew I wanted to make a quinoa salad but I didn’t know what I wanted to put with it, so in the end I went with a rainbow assortment of vegetables, lots of herbs and a simple dressing of lemon juice. It turned out SO delicious and all the colour made me happy every time I ate it. Can’t ask for more than that from your lunch really!

Recipe: Stewed Apples

Today I wanted to share a deliciously simple recipe for stewed apples, that can then be used in a huge variety of ways – or, just eaten straight from the bowl! I don’t use much sugar in the recipe so it’s best to use sweeter varieties of apples, but if you can only get your hands on the more tart varieties of apples then maybe up the sugar or honey a little – depends how sweet you like them really!

Meat Free Mondays is a campaign that is gaining momentum across the world – promoting everyone to go one day a week without eating meat to help benefit both their own health and that of the planet.

Recipe: Quinoa Stuffed Capsicums

Every time I see a recipe for a stuffed food – be it capsicum, zucchini or tomato I always think I should give it a try but for some reason it just never happened. So, when I got a couple of green capsicums in my organic veggie box I decided to stop thinking and start doing. And boy am I glad I did – these were tasty! I think they would be particularly great for a dinner party as they look pretty impressive, and you can do most of the work in advance and just pop them in the oven when you need them. Perfect!

DIY Magnum Ice Cream Cake

Today’s post is less of a recipe, and more of a how-to! I live in a share house with three other people and the two boys have a slight obsession with magnum ice creams. Every Monday night before we settle in for a family viewing of Q&A they have a little competition (usually an arm wrestle or rock-paper-scissors!) to decide whose turn it is to go and get the magnums. This week however, it was one of the boys birthdays so I decided to make my own version of a magnum for them instead – and giant sized at that! It turned out better than expected so I thought I’d share it with you!
