Baked tofu with kale and quinoa

So right now I am currently into alternating extremely healthy quinoa recipes with equally delightful unhealthy cookie ones.  It is obviously now time for our next quinoa recipe which is made even more complete by the addition of kale and tofu.  The tofu in this recipe is baked as opposed to sautéed in a pan, … Continue reading

Quinoa, cucumber, and radish salad

Oh dear, I have let too much time slip by without updating again.  I actually have heaps of recipes to share with you all and the majority of them are quite good for you and involve quinoa.  All of the travel and prep for business school hasn’t actually slowed down my cooking and baking, but … Continue reading

Stuffed tomatoes

It’s been a while since I’ve done a stuffed veggies dish and when I saw this one I had to try it immediately.  I love tomatoes, especially in the summertime, and the mix of goodies that went into this one looked amazing.  As you all know I have a slight obsession with chickpeas (really, almost … Continue reading

Asian-style quinoa and veggies

I’ve certainly got some new baked goods recipes in store to share with you, but I haven’t posted a new recipe for quinoa in ages and considering how I am currently thinking about clean eating and healthy foods after my weekend of Messina gelato cakes and champagne, let’s talk about quinoa and veggies.  I have … Continue reading

Roasted tomato onion salad with dukkah-crusted eggplant

I have a dear friend visiting me all the way from London right now so I am in full-on show off the city mode.  However even with me wanting to show her every restaurant possible, it’s still nice to have one night designated as an eat in night when the whole rest of the trip … 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 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

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
