Recipe: Anzac biscuits

Man, do I have a hard time saying no to homemade Anzac biscuits. Store-made? Too easy! The ones that come in the packet just have nothing on ones that are made fresh at home, jam-packed with oats, coconut and other delights. This is a wee gem of a recipe, one that sits highly underrated in…

Recipe: Ginger crunch

I love a good ginger crunch. It would be one of my favourite slices, however I think that there is quite a big difference between a ‘good’ ginger crunch and a bad one. I don’t like it when they just taste like sugar, which is why this recipe is packed with coconut, rolled oats and…

Recipe: Eggplant and pistachio pasta

An absolutely delightful recipe, this meal is simple to make. It is  vegan,  it is quick, and it tastes like something right out of Sicily. There are minimal ingredients and in summertime hopefully eggplants and tomatoes are in abundance wherever you are. It can be served as a hearty main dish, or alternatively served as…

Recipe: Feijoa, white chocolate and ginger loaf

It is that time of year again where we have so many feijoas that they are beginning to rot under the tree at home (and the price of feijoas in the supermarket continues to break my heart) so last time I was home we did a big sweep and bought so many back to Wellington….

Recipe: Korean fried tofu

I am constantly looking for vegetarian meal ideas and it makes me so happy when I find one that is a) not too time-intensive and b) positively delicious. The sauce used in this recipe is so divine, I would happily eat it by the spoonful. The recipe below is just for the tofu, which I…

Recipe: Chickpea Blondie

Yet another recipe without refined sugar, this chickpea blondie is super filling and makes for a good snack on the go. Packed with protein, these blondies are pretty easy to make and keep you full for so much longer than other sugary snacks. Not to mention the batter is delicious on its own, so it…

Recipe: Salted tahini fudge

I’m going through a real “clean-eats” phase at the moment, so I’m trying to avoid refined sugars when I can. We all know that I have an extremely sweet tooth, so I’m constantly looking for workarounds. This recipe is a wee gem, I saw my vegan flatmates eating it and when I tried it, I…

Recipe: Beetroot, thyme and goat’s cheese tart

Yummy, beetroot tart is so delicious! I made this recipe recently for a fundraising morning tea at my work, where the theme was ‘pink’ in support of breast cancer. I just knew that everyone was going to bring sweet treats so I thought I would make something savoury just to be a little unique. The…

Recipe: Caramel Slice

Everyone needs to know a good caramel slice recipe, or where to find one. This recipe is very straight forward, easy to make and incredibly delicious. The worse part about making caramel slice yourself is you then can’t play oblivious to the ingredients it contains… which makes me feel extremely guilty when I then proceed…

Recipe: Chicken Korma

Yet another Indian favourite of mine, this chicken korma recipe is probably one of the the easiest curries to like. It’s creamy, sweet but also savoury, and the addition of nuts just give it a tasty crunch. Collect 2 T plain unsweetened yoghurt salt and pepper 1/2 t fenugreek 1 t garam masala 1 t…
