Roasted Baby Artichokes with Fennel & Lemon

Truly love artichokes but find I’m rarely up to the preparation challenges they present. Continue reading “Roasted Baby Artichokes with Fennel & Lemon”

Hummus with Purple Sprouting Broccoli

The international day of celebrating all things hummus is here! And we’re joining the party with the simple pleasure of homemade hummus topped with pistachios and pomegranate and the freshest of purple sprouting broccoli.

Veegs, veegs, veegs.  Continue reading “Hummus with Purple Sprouting Broccoli”

Heritage Radish & White Bean Salad

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”

Radishes with Butter & Sea Salt

Not so much a recipe as a devilishly good serving suggestion for spring into summer.

Get heritage radishes if you can, for no other reason than great presentation, and get to it!

Remarkably good radishes.  Continue reading “Radishes with Butter & Sea Salt”

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.

Asparagus with Preserved Lemon & Pickled Chilli

This is a bold and spiky piece from Sabrina Ghayour.

For the adventurous lovers of preserved lemons. And fresh, young in season asparagus.  Continue reading “Asparagus with Preserved Lemon & Pickled Chilli”

Pea Pesto with Ricotta

The perfect thing for a springtime picnic, starter or all day snack! The fresh flavours of summer brought to you at any time by frozen peas.

Couldn’t be any easier or quicker to make, nor any more delicious to eat. Dig in. Continue reading “Pea Pesto with Ricotta”

Potato Pancakes with Spiced Beetroot

Oh, happy day… oh Happy day!

It’s pancake day. And pancake day makes us very happy, alright.

We’re going savoury this year (who am I kidding, we’re going savoury as well this year), with this sassy potato pancake number.

The lightest, fluffiest of pancakes, appearing here with the classic taste pairing of beetroot and horseradish. Thrown in some dill and toasted pine nuts for good measure and you have yourself a delightful celebration of the pancake.

Admittedly a little more effort than your average pancake but completely worth it. Continue reading “Potato Pancakes with Spiced Beetroot”

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”
