Kale & Chickpea Curry
Kale & Chickpea Curry

I am amazed again and again at how the most simple meals are often the most delicious and satisfying. There you are, pondering for hours over what you could do with all the produce that “needs to go”, browsing recipes, flavour combinations…when all you need is just some common sense and a look in yourRead more

Warming Winter Cabbage Stew {vg, gf}

It’s that time of the year again. No, not the tax return yet – though that one is looming large too. It’s autumn here in Australia, and with autumn comes, inevitably, winter. While, unlike in the Northern hemisphere, winter in Down Under does not mean Christmas and gingerbread (but rather five consecutive month of rainRead more

Autumnal Lentil Buckwheat & Beetroot Salad {vg, gf}

While Melbourne is enjoying a glorious late summer these last days, it is only a little more than a week until the official beginning of autumn.

My love for lentils continues. I’m still not tired of lentil bolognese, lentil hummus, lentil pâté and lentil burgers. And with autumn clearly on the way here in Melbourne, it’s time for soups, stews, spice and all things nice again. And because I love black beans too (black bean chocolate cake, anyone?), here’s a spicyRead more

Buckwheat & Lentil Burgers {vg, gf}

I did it. I created the perfect vegan (and gluten free) burger. This was preceded by one year of consistently trying to develop a recipe for a vegan gluten free burger that: a) would not fall apart when flipping, b) appeal even to the most ardent meat eater (my husband). I don’t want to spoilRead more
