Getting Juicy

For as long as I can remember, whenever I would order a freshly squeezed juice at a cafe it was always a combination of apple, pineapple and orange juice. As I got older I’d sometimes add ginger, maybe a carrot, but those three key ingredients never changed. I still standby it as a great flavour combination, but over time I have expanded my horizons somewhat, and now my freshly squeezed juices are more guided by whatever fruit and veggies I have on hand (which unfortunately rarely includes pineapple!) as opposed to habit!

Recipe: Roast Zucchini, Sweet Potato & Chickpea Salad

Melbourne has embraced December as only Melbourne can – with a mixture of super warm days and then some well, not so summery days. I took advantage of one of the cooler days to turn on the oven and whip up this salad, which I then proceeded to eat for dinner for the next few warm days when cooking something warm was the furthest from what I wanted to be doing!

Recipe: Smashed Broad Beans

Living in the inner city means there’s not a whole lot of space for growing our own veggies. We do our best by using pretty much every square centimetre of our (north-facing) front yard, but we’re still not talking much space! This means whatever we do manage to grow needs to be relished when we eat it and for me that means picking it fresh then doing as little to it as possible. That was exactly the case with these broad beans – I collected as many as I needed from the garden, then did very little to them in order to let them shine all on their own! The result was absolutely delicious, and I didn’t even need to leave the house – perfect!

Recipe: Black Rice Salad

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!

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!
