Pretty Raw Dinner Party

I held a party and the food looks pretty simple – in fact it just looks  like salad – but it wasn’t. The flavours were lovely and each dish was incredibly simple to prepare. So this is my dinner-party turbo blog. Enjoy! Raw food is very quick to make and has speedy clean up time….

Kickass Raw Wrap

Yumnumnumnumnum… Let me eat you 1000 times! Smothered in Miso-tahini Dressing; this is how we do it… INGREDIENTS Large Iceburg lettuce leaves Beetroot Carrot Pumpkin seeds Avocado Miso-tahini Dressing (miso, tahini, lemon, water) INSTRUCTIONS Grate carrot and beet, toss some pumpkin seeds through. Assemble beet-blend in the centre of a lettuce leaf, along with a few…

Miso-tahini Dressing

This tastes like cheese. Pure. Cheese. When living in Costa Rica, I used to walk up the road every day and enjoy a salad bowl from a local restaurant. They poured this, over a dull green salad with sliced capsicum, avocado and macadamia nuts. It was incredible. I ate it almost every day for a…

Papaya-tahini-almond salad

This simple salad is inspired by my Mum. INGREDIENTS Avocado Spring onion Mint Papaya Salad greens Tahini Lemon Sliced almonds Salt & Pepper Water INSTRUCTIONS Chop avocado, spring onion, mint, papaya and assemble with almonds on salad greens. In a food processor, blend 2 teaspoons of tahini, with chunks of chopped papaya, add in water…

Summer Marrow

Marrow are juicy, oversized, courgette (or zucchini in the US); they’re lovely. What I love about this summer fruit is that you can stuff them with almost anything and bang out a passable meal. I like to use up the bits around the kitchen and garden. It’s nice idea to include some nuts and seeds…

Roast Vegetable, Quinoa & Bean Salad

Simple, healthful, hearty and delicious. Serve smothered in Tahini Sauce. Or alongside a spinach salad, with a balsamic dressing. INGREDIENTS Roast Carrot, Broccoli, Capsicum and Beetroot Cooked Quinoa Chopped Avocado 1 tin of 4-bean mix, drained and rinsed (or 1 tin of kidney beans, drained and rinsed) Salt and pepper to taste INSTRUCTIONS Toss.

Tortilla con frijoles y vegetales y aguacate

I mean tortillas with refried beans, vegetables and avocado. Es muy similar a un quesadilla. It’s very similar to a quesadilla. Mmmmm…. This takes me back to my days living in Costa Rica. Yes, that’s me showing off. You really need salsa or fresh, chopped tomato on top of this. I ran out of tomatoes – make…

X-treme Pizza

My boyfriend has an insatiable lust for food. His voracious appetite has never been satisfied – until tonight. Because tonight, I made four pizzas and they ruined him. He seems to have slipped into a food coma. Moments ago I nudged him with my foot and his body appeared lifeless. I’m uncertain if he’ll recover…

Stuffed Marrow

I’ve been on holiday, but return with delicious stuffed marrow. This was created by myself and Vegan Pirate at Jodi’s place. I have to mention Jodi so she feels included, but creative credit goes to us. Marrow are giant courgette, or, if you live in the US they’re giant zucchini. When in season you can pick…

Don’t be afraid, it’s tofu – tofu scramble.

This is my first demystifying tofu post. I feel like it’s time to celebrate with my favourite recipe, because yesterday I had 286 people reading my blog! This is the best scramble recipe I’ve made. I enjoy serving it with home-made hash browns, and smothered in tahini sauce. SELECTING YOUR TOFU All tofu was not created…
