Cooking for one is such a pain as eating the same thing night after night gets really boring. I'm always on the look out for a versatile recipe and the caponata definitely suits the bill. It is perfect as a side to fish, on bread, pasta, polenta or just eaten with a fork. It is equally good hot or cold.

Zucchini, Carrot & Corn Fritters

Fritters tend to be the thing I make towards the end of the week when i'm using up the dodge vegies at the back of the fridge. They are so easy and the combinations are endless. They freeze well and can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack. Serve plain, with tomato relish, salsa, smoked salmon and poached eggs, in a burger, as a vegetable side etc etc... so many options!

Mexican Vegetable, Tempeh and Bean Soup

Mexican Soup
Winter is coming which means it's soup time! I love making soup. Not only is it simple to make, but it it makes a large quantity and is an easy way to get in the extra vegies. This soup is a complete meal in itself, with plenty of vegetables, beans, tempeh and dairy and healthy fats, you have all the main food groups covered.

Easter Macarons - Chicks, Eggs and Hot Cross Buns

Easter is coming! 

Last year I made chocolate bunny macarons which looked fairly horrific. Rather than trying again this year I decided to make some different Easter-themed macarons.
