Salad

Rainbow Beets and Lentil Salad

Our take on a classic flavour pairing.

Earthy, beautiful golden and candy beets, almost creamy puy lentils, crunchy fennel, and walnuts. Veegs n’all.

Rustled up in under 30. Continue reading “Rainbow Beets and Lentil Salad”

Spinach Stem Salad / Ispanak Kökü Salatası

We couldn’t eat all those radishes yesterday. What to do with a few leftover heritage radishes? This veegs thing…. Continue reading “Heritage Radish & White Bean Salad”

Romanesco & Broad Bean Salad

Romanesco, the beautiful broccoli from outer space.

Mesmerising geometric spirals within spirals, it is, as far as we’re concerned, proof positive of alien life and 16th century visitations to Italy, where it has been cultivated ever since.

Quantities would just get the way of this delightful dish. We’re freestylin’ here along a well trodden path and there’s something special in the way these veggies and leaves come together of their own accord, in a simple and mellow flavoured, laid back salad.

Chargrilled Broccoli & Cauliflower with Ancho Salsa Verde

Another incidentally veegs delight from Smith & Daughters in Melbourne.

While easy, we did find this recipe pretty darned involved to be honest, lots of stages. Was it worth it? Emphatically YES!

Plus, you make way more salsa verde than is needed for this dish and it makes a great marinade yada, yada. T’is a long old list of ingredients too but it’s good to go all out for a stellar dish that will impress yourself every now and again, in’t it.

It’s also great to be able to turn to the old faithfuls cabbage, cauli and broccoli when there’s not much in season, and create something so unexpected, gorgeous and substantial.  Continue reading “Chargrilled Broccoli & Cauliflower with Ancho Salsa Verde”
