Brown Rice, Kale and Bean Salad

If I have to pick my favourite grain, it’ll be rice every time. It’s delicious, nutritious and most importantly, it’s filling. This is especially important when making a plantbased salad, especially when you want something substantial that can keep you going for a few hours. This Brown Rice, Kale and Bean Salad is one of my favourites salads to make because, not only is it easy to make, it’s also a great make-ahead dish for dinner party, lunch boxes or picnic. Unlike most salads, this salad stays fresh for about three days in the fridge. In fact, it tastes better the day after you make it.

Vegan Cardamom and Pistachio Shortbread Cookies (with Rose Petals)

I don’t normally bake cookies but when I do, I go all out, calories and all. No skimping on the fat or sugar (ok, maybe a bit less sugar that your traditional cookies, but only because I don’t like my cookies way too sweet). I especially love making shortbread cookies because remind me of my childhood. My parents used to buy us a huge tin of butter cookies for Christmas and I still remember those crispy, tender, melt in your mouth buttery goodness. Lately, I’ve been obsessed with putting spices in baked goods, so when I saw a packet of ground cardamom at the shop, I knew exactly what to do. And that’s how these vegan Cardamom and Pistachio Cookies were born.

Halloween post – my new routine and the cold-pressed blood juice

I have a new routine. For about three weeks now, I’ve been doing half-day juice fasts for two or three days each week, and it’s been great. I will talk about this more in the next blog post, but today, I thought I’d give you a quick rundown of my routine, what I use to juice, and share a Halloween-themed juice recipe – Cold Pressed Blood Juice, seeing that the big trick-or-treating day is just around the corner.

Easy Strawberry Jam

The other week, I made some vegan waffles and I felt like slathering them with some peanut butter and strawberry jam. But the problem is, I don’t have any jam. I’ve stopped buying jams two to three years ago as I find them too sweet for me. Did you know that traditional jam uses 1 cup of sugar per 250g strawberries? That’s insane! So I’ve decided to make my own quick and easy strawberry jam.

Healthy Turmeric Stir Fried Brown Rice

Today I will share with you one of my favourite things to make (next to these tasty things). *Drumroll*….. please be upstanding for the Healthy Turmeric Stir Fried Brown Rice!

Everyone has a favourite recipe. It’s that dish that you love, that everybody else loves, that always works, no matter how crazy you get with the ingredients or how lazy you may get with the steps. It’s the recipe that you can almost make blindfolded.

For me, that go-to recipe is fried rice!


Sydney Night Noodle Market – What’s Vegan?

The Good Food Month is here and the Night Noodle Market is on again! I have to say that although it’s not very vegan-friendly, you can certainly find something there. I used to love going to these types of events back in my pre-vegan days and I see no reason to stop. My motto is “you always find something!”
