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

Green minestrone with chickpeas and lemon

So I did say a few blog entries ago that I was over making soup for a while, but when I was perusing the latest edition of the lovely Gourmet Traveler magazine at my hotel on my latest trip to Melbourne, this recipe just jumped out at me and I couldn’t resist.  I have been … 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

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

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
