Jackfruit and Pea Mornay

  • 18 February 2020

Jackfruit and Pea Mornay   Who has never had Tuna Mornay? Am I the only Australian who has never tried it? When I was growing up friends used to talk about eating it for dinner but I had never had it until last month. Yahoooo I am no longer a Tuna Mornay virgin. Well it wasn’t actually tuna I had, I would have been sick if it had been. It was a mornay made with jackfruit, chickpeas, peas...

We went on daily outings and only on one of those days did we eat out (we went to Sweetbones Café in Canberra), all the other days we packed up our picnic lunch. On one of those days there was a fire in Queanbeyan and when we got there found...

Mushroom, Artichoke and Spinach Pizza

  • 07 May 2019

This is the first in my monthly recipes with children in mind. Many people have asked for recipes that children may enjoy and for some be able to help make too. This is a great pizza recipe as it is gluten free. I have shared the gluten free pizza base recipe before. This topping was created by Jaldhara and Grace in the April foundation cooking course and it really was sensational. You can...

Gluten Free Beetroot Ravioli (made from scratch and it’s easy)

  • 16 October 2018

A few weeks back I posted on Facebook all the things I love to make with beetroot and one of them was ravioli. One of the followers asked for the ravioli recipe and I told them I would post it in a blog post soon. I had the recipe but needed time to make it to get a photo to put with the blog post.    I have been flat out since then so wondered how I could squeeze making ravioli in the...

Vegan Sausage Rolls for Children and Adults Alike

  • 26 March 2018

Continuing the theme of what to cook for children or teenagers who have decided to go vegan has me sharing this sausage roll recipe with you all. I am sure many adults would like it too. I have included a short crust pastry recipe which is nothing like the puff pastry that sausage rolls are usually made with. If you are looking for authentic it is probably best you buy an organic already made...

What to Cook for the Kids When They Decide to Become Vegan

  • 20 March 2018

What to Cook for the Kids When They Decide to Become Vegan I was asked some weeks back for ideas on what to cook for children/teenagers once they decide they want to become vegan. I don’t think there is one easy answer to this as it really does depend on what the individual child/teenager likes to eat but that is actually a good place to start. You will know what your child/teenager likes to eat...

Gluten Free Pizza Anyone?

  • 12 February 2018

If you have coeliac disease or gluten intolerance you will understand the relief you feel when you don't have to ask if something is gluten free. It is the same for all sorts of other dietary requirements including being vegan. I was at a vegan picnic recently and there were a lot of children. One of the children asked if the food was vegan then they realised they were at a vegan picnic and didn'...

Cheesy Baked Potatoes with Coleslaw and tomato pear salsa

  • 26 April 2017

What was comfort food to you as a child, something that really nourished you and made you feel good no matter what was going on around you? One of mine was baked potatoes. When we went camping we would throw a potato in the fire and cook it and eat the whole potato charred skin and all. A baked potato is even more appealing to me now I am on a vegan diet. Mak and I  pop our potatoes  in...

Palak and Lentil Balls

  • 27 February 2017

An Iron Rich Meal Not to MissHow has your week been?  We went camping last week. It is the only thing I know that really gets me to relax and the absence of Wi-Fi makes it even more relaxing. I took along dinners that had already been frozen so the only prep I had to do was to reheat the dinners and make a salad for lunch. It was super luxurious. After the short camping trip was over the...

Avocados

  • 07 July 2014

At the age of fourteen doing work experience at the Darwin Travelodge to see if cheffing would be my chosen career, I came across avocado for the first time. Avocados had newly arrived in Darwin and I had heard of them as my best friend's mum loved them on toast but had never actually seen or tasted one. One of the chefs supervising me cut an avo in half proclaiming how delicious they were. He...
