Frittatas are a quick, healthy and easy way to use up vegetables and herbs you have lying around. They also make excellent leftovers for breakfast, lunch or mid-morning snacks – this one travelled well to the beach the next day. If you don’t have a leek, a large brown onion is fine and goats cheese […]

We love a good fish stew. They’re quick, healthy, usually a one-pot affair, and are perfect for dinner parties because they satisfy pescatarians. This recipe is inspired by the Brazilian dish, moqueca, which sounds and tastes exotic but is super easy and uses everyday ingredients. You can stick to white fish (snapper or ling work […]

This crunchy salad with an insanely good dressing is quick to pull together and will have the people in your life who struggle to eat their greens go back for seconds (and thirds). Womboks and rice wine vinegar are in most large supermarkets now so it’s a one-stop shop for the ingredients. Feel free to […]

Ever bought a tray of mangoes because they were super cheap but then wondered how on earth you’re going to get through them all? Put them to good use with this speedy two-minute salsa. There are only four ingredients and they combine to give the perfect mix of sweet, sour and spicy. We like it best […]

Black beans are a pantry staple for us. Versatile, rich in resistant starch, good for your gut and an excellent source of zinc, what’s not to like? We love them cooked with cumin, smoked paprika and crushed tomatoes for a healthy fast food meal with tacos or simply added to a mexican style prawn stew […]

This one-pot dish of lentils with lemon and herbs is a great example of how keeping canned tomatoes and lentils on hand turns into something extraordinary with the addition of a few fresh and dried ingredients. We managed to make multiple meals out of this – alongside white fish for dinner, with a fried egg […]

Yes, we do eat meat! And we love a good spaghetti bolognese, particularly in cooler weather. Of course, our sauce is big on veggies so you don’t miss out on the important stuff while enjoying the meat fest. This bolognese is a hit with kids and adults alike. Make a batch at the weekend and store […]

While we tend to opt for red wine and cheese over dessert, we never say no to a crumble if it’s on offer. This crowd-pleasing crumble recipe uses our Quick Stewed Rhubarb and frozen berries but you could use fresh instead of frozen berries (both are packed with antioxidants, fibre and vitamin C) and substitute the […]

Three small portions of dairy a day may actually protect against heart disease and stroke. According to an article in The Guardian this week, a large new study suggests that in moderation, dairy products may actually protect against heart disease and stroke, despite getting a bad rap in the past because of the saturated fat they […]

We love peanut butter. By that we mean we love REAL peanut butter, made from peanuts only. And a pinch of salt, of course. You can get some excellent brands in Australian supermarkets now – we use Mayver’s or Pic’s. Full of good fats and protein, peanut butter is a great replacement for oil in […]
