Zucchini Fries with Sriracha Mayo

This is chapter 3 of my best-selling novel “Zucchini Pretending To Be Things Other Than Zucchini”. So after brownies and zoodles, this cheeky veg has only gone and become fries. And damn delicious fries at that.

Vietnamese Caramel Pork

GOOOOOOOOOOD MOOOOOOORNING VIETNAAAAAAAAM! Or good evening, because you probs wouldn’t eat this in the morning. Unless it was 3am and you had a skinful, because Asian food is extra delicious in this case. Caramel Pork is one of those sweet/salty/fatty flavour combos...

Vegan Bolognese

So you watched ‘What the Health?’ And now you’re thinking “what the Hell am I going to eat now that I’ve turned vegan for the next 2 weeks or until I get drunk and eat a kebab at 3am”? Well don’t stress, I’ve knocked up a family fave so you can force everyone in the...

Sweet & Sticky Chicken Wings

Ain’t no thing like a chicken wing! This recipe is based off one of the first things I learned how to cook when I was a kid, but they were chicken legs and, wait for it, they were cooked in the microwave. Foul (see what I did there?) But hey, it was the 80’s and it...
Spring Roll Bowl

Spring Roll Bowl

I bloody love a spring roll, but those little grease sticks aren’t exactly health food. I mean they start off alright, with their innards a mix of meat and veggies, then it goes downhill with a wrapping made of flour and cornstarch, then plonked in a vat of bubbling...

Spiced Roast Cauliflower with Turmeric Dressing

Spiced Roast Cauliflower with Turmeric Dressing

So you’ve had yourself a merry little Christmas, now you feel a bit like 2017 Mariah and all you want for lunch is a salad. I hear you. Not just any old salad mind, a bowl of limp leaves sounds about as appealing as having to sit next to your handsy drunk uncle...

Lebanese Cinnamon Chicken & Rice

Lebanese Cinnamon Chicken & Rice

If you want my advice, don’t even think twice about making this chicken and rice with all  of the spice because is really, really nice! I know cauliflower rice has probably had its low-carb hey day, but I’m still coming up with ways to revamp it into something...

Larb Gai

Larb Gai

I’ve been lucky enough to have visited Thailand more times than I can remember. I love the beaches, the people, but above all the food! The perfect balance of sour, sweet, salty and bitter which results in some incredible taste sensations. Larb is one of my favourite...

Korean Meatballs

Korean Meatballs

”heeeeeeeeeeey sexy lady! Oh oh oh oh oh, Oppa is Gangnam style!” Ha, sorry, you wont be able to get that song out of your head now. Unlike this annoying (yet strangely catchy) bit of K-pop, this dish will not be a one-hit wonder in your kitchen. The sweet and spicy...

Harissa & Honey Roast Carrots with Orange Tahina

Harissa & Honey Roast Carrots with Orange Tahina

Baby carrots seem to be a pretty pretentious thing to buy, but they were on sale I promise. And guess what? They taste surprisingly just like carrot. I vegazzled them up, making them sweet and spicy, then got all Nigella (minus the coke habit and porn voice) and gave...

Gemista

Gemista

Gemista from another mister. The ingredients list looks long, but I promise once the veg is prepped these are a breeze to knock together. And guess what? It’s vegan! So if you’ve jumped on that bandwagon after you watched some train wreck of a documentary on Netflix...

Eggplant Involtini

Eggplant Involtini

Vegan cashew cheese seems like a completely wanky and pretentious thing to make, but here we are. So if you’re looking to embrace meat-free Monday or trying to cut out dairy, you’ll get onboard with this tossbag of a task and try this recipe. It’s actually a pretty...

Curried Rice Salad

Curried Rice Salad

The 70’s wasn’t all bell bottoms and sideburns you know. It was rank food as well. This though is one of my Mum’s faves that I don’t mind giving a bit of revamp and re-introduction into my paleo-fied 2017. Looking for a crowd-pleaser at your next BBQ? This is it. Got...

Coronation Chicken Salad

Coronation Chicken Salad

Yo Queenie, I just Paleofied your chicken salad and I’m not sorry one bit. To be honest, after the dodgy car crash, the toe-sucking Fergie and the ginger Grandson that looks waaaaay too much like someone that isn’t his dad, you’ve probably got more things to worry...

CHINESE CHICKEN WINGS

CHINESE CHICKEN WINGS

Well these guys are wing-diddly-licious and just as the Colonel said, finger-lickin’ good. No 11 secret herbs and spices here peeps. To be honest, I think that shady old geezer with the dodgy goatee is bullshitting about that little catchphrase. His chicken is...
