Just a quick post to let you know that I’m guest posting over on the lovely Hannah’s blog – Nellie and Oliver where I am sharing my recipe for the fruit and nut filled quinoa salad in the photo. (more…)
Sorry about the lack of posts recently – we’ve been having all kinds of technical problems here in I Spy Plum Pie world, but we’ve almost fixed all the gremlins and will resume regular programming! Hurrah!
The other week I spotted this Vermicelli noodle salad recipe on the Vegie Project blog and wanted to try it, so I thought I’d make a Vietnamese themed night of it and make some rice paper rolls as well. They are so simple and delicious, and were a great way to start our Vietnamese feast!
Even though we are more than a month into Autumn, Melbourne appears to think we’re still in summer and this weekend presented us with glorious sunshine, and high-20s temperatures. This means I’m still making summery food, and this chickpea salad fits the bill perfectly!
I first made a variation on this salad before Christmas, and when trying to decide what to make for lunch at work this week I thought I’d give this another go, with some changes like the addition of cranberries and pomegranate molasses. It worked out pretty well too – although it’s not the prettiest of salads to photograph, that’s for sure!
Now that the heatwave in Melbourne has subsided for the time being I have been able to turn the oven back on and add some more variety to my cooking. This roast veggie quinoa salad with a tahini dressing seemed like the perfect way to reintroduce oven baked foods to my diet, and is the perfect thing to bring to work for a week’s worth of lunches!
