Recipe: Ginger-Garlic Soba

If you’ve been around these parts for any length of time then you’d know colourful salads are up there on my favourite food list, and this is no exception! Not only is it colourful, it’s also full of delicious flavours (and a bit of a spice kick!) from the tofu marinade, all supported by tasty, hearty soba noodles. What more could you want from a salad!?

Recipe: Black Bean Tacos

Mexican food is a big favourite of mine and B’s, it’s so easy to whip up, full of flavour and you can use pretty much anything you have on hand. I had been sick and had pretty much no appetite for almost a week (the worst kind of sickness for someone like me!) so had a fridge full of veggies that needed using, so into the mix they all went! I’ve become a big fan of black beans recently as well, although sometimes it’s tricky to find cans of them, but worth the effort when you do locate them! I went cheese-less when making these, opting to go more heavy handed on the avocado instead, but obviously you can cheese them up if you so desire!

Recipe: Ginger & Orange Quinoa Greens

This bright green dish is amazingly simple but packs a flavour punch thanks to the ginger & orange dressing. The tangy orange works so well with the grated ginger, with a tiny bit of sweetness from the honey – perfect! This recipe makes quite a bit of dressing, but the quinoa just drinks it up so I really like it, but use less if you prefer!

Recipe: Roasted Broccoli and Chickpea Salad

My love for chickpeas knows no bounds, but I hadn’t roasted them for a while so when I needed a quick and easy salad the combination of roasted chickpeas and broccoli seemed too good to pass up. Nice and simple but packing a flavour punch thanks to the tangy dressing, this salad makes the perfect side dish at a BBQ or part of a lunchtime spread with friends and is equally delicious warm or cold. I think that’s called a winning combination!
