Recipe: Roast Capsicum Dip

This roast capsicum dip was part of my Vegan High Tea and was another bowl of simple, delicious snack food. I also got to try out the grill in my new apartment for the first time, and it’s the first time I’ve had a proper grill for a long time, so that was a nice change!

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: Couscous & Chickpea Salad

Now that I’m back in the swing of things post Christmas holidays and moving house I’m back to making big salads on a Sunday afternoon to fuel me for a week of lunches at work. This one was a great way to start as it was quick and easy to prepare, full of flavour and also enough protein to stop me reaching for a mid-afternoon snack. I had been favouring Israeli couscous in recent times but decided it was time to pull the ol’ standard couscous out of the pantry, and I’m very glad I did – it worked a treat!

Recipe: Red Pepper Hummus

A few weeks back I started doing twice-weekly group personal training (did someone say summer is coming?!) and by the time I finish the session and make it home again I am super hungry. I have been trying to make sure I always have something healthy on hand to have a quick snack on before I get dinner prepared, and hummus has been perfect for that. Not only is it super delicious but the chickpeas are high in protein, so it’s ideal fuel for after exercise. I had made plain hummus, and sundried tomato hummus, so I decided it was time to have a play with a new flavour – and red pepper hummus it is!

Recipe: Asparagus and Haloumi Quinoa Salad

Now that asparagus is back in season I wanted to use it in a salad for my work lunches this week. I have been on a bit of a goats cheese kick lately but decided to pair it with another of my favourite cheeses – haloumi – in a fresh and delicious quinoa salad. It turned out really well and I found myself looking forward to lunch at work even more than usual – and that’s saying something!
