Scrambled Silken Tofu Breakfast with Greens

Breakfast is my least favourite meal, mainly just because I find the options that are egg, dairy & gluten free to be boring, and there is a lack of choices. I read that Black Salt, which strangely is pink, is the secret ingredient in making great scrambled tofu. I found some at Herbies (they have […]

Pumpkin, Carrot, Ginger & Turmeric Soup with Fried Curry Leaves

I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting much from this soup, but it really surprised me. The addition of the fried curry leaves lifted it to a new level.  I was really just trying to make a soup out of the vegetables that are on the low histamine list, and I wanted to include turmeric for […]

Summer Zucchini, Corn & Basil (Vegan) Chowder

Heirloom Tomato, Zuchini Flower, Broad Bean & Ricotta Tart

    We are having such a crap summer in Sydney this year. Is has rained most days, and the days it is sunny tend to be roasting hot and muggy and then storms roll in by the afternoon.  We bought new outdoor furniture at Christmas and we are yet to be able to enjoy it. […]

Banana & Blueberry Bread

   I generally don’t bake. Baking doesn’t suit my “let’s just add this see how it goes” personality and since I can’t have gluten, eggs or most dairy I just find baking too hard to get right. But there was a banana situation that needed to be dealt with, and I am seriously using any […]
