Sun Dried Tomato Flatbreads with Macadamia Nut & Dill Cheese

Now that the summer weather has finally arrived my fresh herbs are thriving! I love my baby herb garden and I love that I can open the window, pick a few leaves or fronds and totally amp up the good vibes in whatever I’ve got going on in the kitchen. The collection we are growing so far is; coriander, mint, dill, rosemary, thyme and oregano. When the sun is shining, the window is open and I take a deep breath it’s all herbal and so invigorating. I’m also waiting for my nasturtium

Sun Dried Tomato & Chickpea Burgers

Dinner is almost always a salad or some sort of left-overs situation in our home. That’s just the way we like it here. A big bowl of vegetables, a grain and lots of tahini drizzled on top. A typical example of our current dinner would be a crunchy green salad (with lots of cucumber, radish and sugar snaps), some grilled asparagus, quinoa and tahini. So simple but so, so good.

There are some days when we just crave something more, something a little different (that doesn’t necessarily

Red Cabbage & Asparagus with a Caesar Style Salad

It feels like it has been quite a while since I last posted something on here.

The Super Simple Pizza

I don’t just like pizza. I love pizza. There has been quite a few (OH SO MANY) attempts at making a good, thin, crispy, gluten-free, vegan crust in our kitchen. A crust that obviously tastes good, has good texture and it needs to have some serious structural integrity for all of those toppings. We now have two bases that we rotate between that work really well (hallelujah)!!

This post isn’t about the toppings. It is all about that base (and a simple tomato sauce as well because

Balsamic Tomato Soup with Butter Beans & Kale

I really used to dislike tomato soup. All the way through my childhood/teenage years, right up until I was 21 and my new boyfriend was making dinner for me. He’d cooked dinner for me a couple of times before (he made falafel for me on our first date and it was insanely good) and the first time we met he was working in the kitchen at the cafe my friends and I popped into everyday post class for a cuppa and a chat. So, in short, I know he is good in the kitchen. Real good. But tomato
