Thanks to everyone that got involved in the 1st Meatless Monday linkup! We’re back for week 2 and I can’t wait to see what you’ve all been cooking!
I had some friends over recently for a BBQ to watch the AFL Grand Final (we just don’t talk about the result!) and I was on salad duty, which is no surprise given my love for salads! I went with a few old favourites like my potato salad, as well as this easy-peasy pesto pasta salad! It was quite the hit so I will definitely be pulling it out again for more BBQs over the summer!
The other day I was perusing the aisles of the health food store near my work (please tell me I’m not the only one who does that!) when I spotted some black rice on sale and decided it needed to come home with me. I had seen a few recipes using black rice but had never eaten it myself, so after doing some research decided the first way I wanted to try it was in a salad. I picked the brightest coloured vegetables from my veggie delivery, and away I went!
Despite the fact this looks like a pasta dish, that is in fact ramen on the bottom there! I whipped this up the other evening when short on time and ideas for dinner and I was super happy with the combination that I thought I should probably share! Everything cooks in under 20 minutes so then it’s just a matter of putting it all together and pouring some marinade over the top and you’re done!
