Gluten free, vegan, low FODMAP mac n’ cheese

Whenever I’m feeling sorry for my FODMAP self, I think of the low FODMAP vegans. As a general rule, vegans (or the vegans I see on Instagram, please forgive me) seem to eat a lot of fruit, and a lot of legumes – both heavily restricted on the FODMAP diet. If I couldn’t rely on  … Read more

5 ingredient gluten free lemon and caper carbonara

I’ve had somewhat of a lemon revelation of late. I used to walk away in bemusement when friends would marvel about how everything could be improved with the zesty citrus. I was never the person to use that customary wedge with a bowl of pho, or with fish n’ chips. I’m unsure what specifically has clicked and  … Read more

Seasonal apple, parsnip, hazelnut and goat’s cheese tart

Seasonal eating. The older I get, the more I realise that the aspect of a globalised world I previously enjoyed (that is, being able to purchase figs and raspberries in the dead of winter) is not really all that worthy of celebration, particularly when it’s mainly for a ‘gram shot. Not only are there the  … Read more

Balsamic brown sugar roasted strawberry caprese salad

Preserved lemon roasted pumpkin, Greek Yoghurt and chilli

Preserved lemon: is there anything it can’t do? Pumpkin roasted in preserved lemon brine, and served with roasted preserved lemon itself, elevates a scrappy fridge dinner to something else entirely. Since becoming increasingly intolerant to everything under the sun, I’ve had to try and get a bit more creative with how I flavour things (given  … Read more

Gluten free broccoli and parmesan pizza bases

I used to eye roll at people who claimed that such and such a food was an integral part of their weekly routine. As someone who used to be thoroughly shook if Mum told me we were having the same thing for dinner two nights in a row, I couldn’t fathom how people could be  … Read more

Grain free zucchini, ricotta and herb tart

Sometimes I am so naive and oblivious that I wonder how I’ve made it to the ripe old age of 26. Up until recently, I watched on in awe as the illustrious people of Instagram showcased their perfectly, uniformly sliced carrot batons, leaving me wondering why mine ranged from the side of a matchstick to  … Read more

Quinoa salad with spiced lemon butter and roasted pumpkin

  This might be an unpopular, or merely uncommon opinion, but I think the lead up to Spring is probably my favourite time of the year. It’s still cold enough that I can (potentially) get away with wearing grey marl unscathed, the days are slowly getting longer, and I’m slowly remembering what it’s like not  … Read more
