Recipe: Roast Pumpkin Risotto

I’m pretty happy that it’s autumn and therefore pumpkin season here in Australia as it’s up there as one of my favourite vegetables. It’s not only delicious but it’s amazingly versatile. I use it in everything – salads, burgers, curries, soup and now a risotto! I go through phases with risotto, I either make it a lot or go months without cooking it at all but I think it’s safe to say I’m back in a risotto phase right now!

Recipe: Risoni with Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomato

I’ve seen risoni recipes popping up a bit lately and realised it was something I had never actually cooked with myself so decided it was time to get my hands on some and give it a go! I was pleasantly surprised, being pasta it was quick and easy to prepare and it also is a great base for a whole range of flavours as a standalone lunch or a great side dish with dinner. I have a feeling risoni will be a more regular feature in my kitchen from now on!

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.

Recipe: Simple Spring Pasta

I don’t cook a whole lot of pasta meals, but when I do I like to keep them as simple as possible with just a handful of fresh vegetables and no heavy sauce. This is a perfect example of that, it doesn’t involve much work but it is full of delicious flavours – just what you need for a quick meal on a warm Spring night!

Recipe: Mushroom & Spinach Macaroni and Cheese

Mushrooms appear in my veggie box with somewhat regularity and I always find ways to use them by adding them to pasta sauces, throwing them in stir-fries or curries or cooking them up for breakfast (which is B’s favourite way to eat them!). I rarely make them the star of the dish though, so when I got a large bag full of little button mushrooms in my last veggie box delivery I decided it was time to change all that, and went hunting for a mushroom focused recipe to try out!
