This vegan Roast Pumpkin, Mushroom & Sage Risotto makes a comforting and delicious meal that comes together in less than 30 minutes. Risotto used to be a dish I would put off making, or save for restaurants, due to the fiddly requirement to watch it like a hawk and add stock every few minutes for what seemed like forever. NOT ANY MORE! I discovered that you only need to do this step in the beginning, and then you can just chuck in the rest of the stock and just simmer it unti
Almond Butter just has to be a true love of mine. So adding it's creamy goodness to a warming curry, makes perfect sense. Being able to make something delicious, that's easy to prepare is also a Must in my house. We're all so busy! Being able to throw everything together in one pot, and having it cook in minutes means that the family can come together for a tasty meal in minimal time. So when Crock-Pot asked me to test out their Crock-Pot Express Multi-Cooker, with speedy pre
I was so honoured to cook this recipe recently in front of my first live audience, at Castle Towers Shopping Centre, at a pop-up kitchen for their new Cooking School. What a strange feeling it was in the lead up. To be so happy with a recipe yourself, and to eat it regularly. Would people like it? Would they baulk at the idea of there being no meat? Would I forget everything I wanted to say and stare blankly at them all red-faced? All of the uncertainties about myself and my
Tis' the season for Pumpkin related foods. Even though it's Spring in Australia, I do love Autumn spices all year round. These pancakes are made super flavourful, healthy, fluffy and protein packed whilst being refined sugar free, with the use of roast pumpkin, vanilla protein powder and granulated stevia. When using protein powder to cook, my most obvious advice to you is to use one that doesn't taste gross to drink! Sounds relatively straight forward right. It's like using
How busy is life getting!? With the school run, work commitments, exercise, homework, after school activities and sports, plus trying to fit in some sort of social life... It all seems to be going past in a blur. So the last thing I want to do sometimes when I get home after a busy day, is cook for hours in the kitchen. But I do want something nutritious and filling to nourish my body. So I thought I'd let you in on one of my secret weapons for creating a gourmet meal in less
Pumpkin Pie Pancakes just have to be the perfect winter treat breakfast. So warming with the delicate aroma of cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg spices mixed with the sweetness of the syrup! I topped mine with lots of fruit, lightly toasted coconut flakes and a drizzle of rice malt syrup. When I first started eating healthy food 'properly' about 3 years ago now, and gave up refined sugar, I read in Sarah Wilson's I Quit Sugar cookbook that she baked pumpkin, pureed it and froze it.
My love for curry spiced foods never ends! As does my love for grilled veggies! So darn good. So put it all together and you get this amazing sandwich. This recipe will talk through how I made the Curried Lentil & Pumpkin patties, but to make the veggies I just brush a griddle pan with some coconut oil and thinly slice some veggies like pumpkin, sweet potato, zucchini and red capsicum, and just grill them for a few minutes on each side until you can see the grill marks.
