Summer vegetable bake

It has been quite a while since I’ve posted a non baked goods recipe on this blog and I know I’m a bit overdue.  I’ve been searching around in vain for recipes that are healthy that I haven’t made before that don’t actually require much cooking time because when it’s this hot out (sorry, people … Continue reading

Sticky banana date cupcakes

Happy New Year everyone!  I for one am absolutely thrilled it is 2014, which will be a year full of new beginnings and exciting adventures for me.  I know that most people like to kick of the new year with resolutions, of which nearly all involve some variation of “being healthier”.  At my household and … Continue reading

Spinach and mushroom gozleme

In Australia, a classic food that is sold at almost every open air market is gozleme (pronounced goz-le-may).  The first time I tried one I could not figure out why this amazing food has somehow not made it to America.  It’s a traditionally Turkish dish and is basically a flatbread that can be filled with … Continue reading

Two bean kale soup

This will be my last soup entry for a while I think, as we are now rapidly approaching summer here and I don’t think I’ll be craving soup anytime soon.  But in sympathy for my many dear friends who are experiencing negative temperatures and snow, this one is for you.  You can never have too … Continue reading

Roasted tofu and vegetables

From what I can tell of the people who read this blog and give me their feedback, you all vastly prefer cookie / baked goods recipes to healthy vegetarian ones.  Apologies, but I must hold my ground and post this delightfully healthy recipe because I need the motivation to be healthy amongst all the massive … Continue reading

Challah apple stuffing

I feel like it’s not even that controversial to state that stuffing is the best part of Thanksgiving.  (Some may go with pumpkin pie or sweet potatoes with marshmallows, but I am firmly in the stuffing camp.  Combined with cranberry sauce and turkey…or just totally by itself.)  And because we have this amazing phenomenon this … Continue reading

Roasted butternut squash kale soup

Here’s another delicious detox-y soup (seriously it really is delicious, I promise).  Now that I am travelling literally every week in true consultant style, I am finding myself getting pretty tired eating out all the time, and I just welcome the opportunity to have healthy home-cooked food.  My favourite thing to do when I am … Continue reading

Zucchini tian

A few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to have an amazing friend from America grace me with her presence in Sydney, and we had an absolutely amazing time together.  I love having visitors because I love showing off the most beautiful city in the world where I am lucky enough to live, and I … Continue reading

Thai quinoa salad

It’s been perfect weather in Australia since July (aka the “dead of winter” here), and thus I am always in a summery mood here.  It’s just gotten hotter since then, which makes me crave cooler foods and salads.  Unfortunately, these don’t store or freeze like my favourite soups and stews, but nevertheless they are delicious … Continue reading

Butternut squash chickpea chili

I’ve had an amazing few days of hosting some Americans, and I have a good friend here who is staying for the whole next week, so this means heaps of time at all my favourite restaurants and bars and trying as many new ones as possible.  Needless to say, after some very heavy socialising, sometimes … Continue reading
