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...
Spanish Pork Skewers (Pinchos Morunos)

Spanish Pork Skewers (Pinchos Morunos)

Ola Senors and Senoritas! Hands up if you like meat on a stick?! Yup, thought so. These spicy little Moorish mofos are a bit of a go-to for me because they tick all the boxes we like….delicious, simple ingredients and bloody easy to knock together, leaving you plenty...

Shredded Kale & Brussels Sprout Salad

Shredded Kale & Brussels Sprout Salad

I used to hate Brussels Sprouts. The way my nanna used to boil those tiny, farty cabbages up whole and serve them in all their bitter glory made my gag reflex go into overdrive. As an adult, (questionable), I love them. Probably down to the fact that I use cooking...

Celeriac Risotto with Roast Pumpkin & Sage

Celeriac Risotto with Roast Pumpkin & Sage

Celeriac is like the Kylie Jenner of produce. Not born the most attractive of the vegetable sisters, but with a little peel, shred and process, she is now totally instagram ready. She works well as fake risotto (fauxsotto perhaps?), she doesn’t go mushy and is full of...

Caramelised Onion and Tomato Tart

Caramelised Onion and Tomato Tart

Well if I haven’t gone and got all inspired by this years little vacay to the South of France! While the vino is awesome the food is totes top notch as well, and this is my paleo take on their famous Provençal Tart. Feel free to add a salty element like olives or even...

Cajun Chicken with Mango Salsa

Cajun Chicken with Mango Salsa

This has become a bit of a favourite go-to, midweek meal at our house. Not only is it reasonably quick and easy to knock together, but any leftover chicken makes a fab lunch the next day in a salad or a lettuce wrap. To be honest with you, this was the first dinner I...

Balinese Chicken Curry

Balinese Chicken Curry

“You look good today Rhonda. Hot like a sunrise…” This curry is so damn good, you’ll have your very own Katut knocking down your door to taste what you’ve knocked up. Don’t be freaked out by the long list of ingredients, or by making your own curry paste. It’s all...

Za’atar Scones

Za’atar Scones

With all my baking, you’d think I was a real sweet tooth, but I’m a lover of all things savoury. And za’atar, well, I’m all in on that stuff too. It’s bloody delicious in all its herby goodness. I sprinkle that stuff like green fairy dust onto soups and salads for a...

Smoked Salmon Frittata

Smoked Salmon Frittata

Frittata. The ultimate lazy meal. A bit like an omelette, but you don't have to flip it. Bit like a quiche but you don't have to bother yourself with a pesky crust. A bit like you've gone to some trouble, but really you just used up what was in your veggie drawer. Up...

Honey Sesame Chicken Noodles

Honey Sesame Chicken Noodles

To say I like my vegetable Spiralizer would be an understatement. I LOVE my vegetable Spiralizer!! It's an amazing, inexpensive kitchen tool that's easy to use and, most importantly, easy to clean (unlike you Mr Juicer hiding in the back of the cupboard taking up...

Italian Meatballs

Italian Meatballs

It took me ages to decide what to name this dish…..just kidding! These bad boys contain tomatoes, basil and Balsamic vinegar, call me predictable but I think it was pretty obvious where we were going here.  These are a pretty stock standard mid-week meal at Casa...

Lebanese Tahina Fish (Samke Harra)

Lebanese Tahina Fish (Samke Harra)

Let's be honest, plain white fish is just a bit, well, beige. I'm guessing though, if you're reading this, you're not here for my charm and good looks and you're expecting a solution for this beigeness. Well, ta-da! I present you with my version of Samke Harra, which...
