Six Game Changing Vegetarian Recipes

Red lentil Dahl

Who doesn’t love Dal?

This recipe is a really simple version we have created to max-out flavour while keeping it simple enough to make after a long day. Add little yogurt and some crusty flatbread on the side winning 🙂 .

Turmeric Roast cauliflower 

Cauliflower had to be the new super star veg of 2017, they are so versatile, healthy and cheep. Whole roasted, topped with a turmeric crust and with a few tricks up your sleeve you can create incredibly tasty and healthy dishes.

Quinoa Risotto

Sick of stirring your risotto for half an hour while it cooks on the stove? This recipe takes no time at all and is a great way to use up extra cooked quinoa.

PS If you don’t have extra cooked quinoa in your fridge, you should! It’s such a handy thing to have ready to go. Throw it in salads, soups and stews. Make it in to porridge or bircher, or make this delicious Beetroot Quinoa Risotto.

Raw cauliflower risotto

Raw Cauliflower risotto

Is it a Risotto? well not really – its raw, and there is no rice!

But when you cut your cauliflower up like this you get riced cauliflower – mix it with a super tasty wet guacamole and you have a super tasty raw, vegan “risotto”!

Now, if you’re sitting there think – not good enough – I dare you to try this. Next time you roast a chicken make this as a side. Your friends with be like – Holy What! Then keep some for lunch the next day with your leftover chicken and you with be making this weekly before you know it!

“To keep the body in good health is a duty, for otherwise we shall not be able to trim the lamp of wisdom, and keep our mind strong and clear. Water surrounds the lotus flower, but does not wet its petals.”  


Roast Pumpkin

Hollow it out, stuff it and bake it just like you would a turkey or whole chicken and you’ll be blown away with the flavour and how good you feel after eating it. caramelised on the outside with a sweet and crunchy centre this is my goto Christmas dinner.

Three grain hipster salad

Oh yeah! This salad is about as hipster as they come, the only thing it’s missing is a well groomed beard and a pair of burgundy chinos.

Serve it with a piece of crispy skinned salmon for extra protein or turn it into a brekkie bowl by serving with some Poached Eggs.

This dish is so freaking tasty Guy’s put it on the menu at his North Bondi cafe Depot, so if you’re in the hood pop in and try before you buy (or make). Yeew!

    Today I cooked the coconut milk braised chicken. I slow cooked it for hours. Then deboned and shred the chicken for my kids, blended the liquid into a silky sauce like soup…. frankly they could not have enough of it? I added culantro (instead of thyme) and Thai basil in the braising liquid as well, it works! This recipe is a keeper? Thanks❤️
