A classic stir fry is a super simple, 1-pan situation that is convenient after a long day or week – no chef skills required. Minimal prep and cooking time, throw this together when you need something tasty in a flash!
This delicious and simple bowl can be whipped up in 10 minutes or less. Such a simple, nourishing dish, with all the robust flavours of Mexicana. Save yourself a heap of time an effort by using up that tin of beans in the cupboard too. Double win!
There’s something divine about lemon and pepper together. The zesty flavours are awesome on both seafood and chicken. Here I’ve added a bit of extra spice and paired it with a low-carb rice option for a lean and green dinner.
If you haven’t used liquid smoke before, you’re in for a real treat. You can find it at most speciality grocers, and it adds an amazing BBQ flavour to sauces, meats, soups and more. A little goes a long way. Great if you don’t have a BBQ to hand and end up doing these in the oven, like me in my little city apartment!

Everybody loves a good pizza, but let’s be honest they aren’t always the healthiest option.

Every morning I have the same debate at breakfast – sweet or savoury. It’s always a tough call right? This recipe ticks the pancake box, while being all kinds of deliciously savoury. It’s a win-win.
My healthy take on this Tex-Mex favourite, this burrito won’t leave you feeling weighed down. Traditionally loaded with refried beans, rice, cheese and sour cream, for some they can be difficult to digest leaving you feeling sluggish. Next time you’re craving Mexican, make this your go-to for an option your tastebuds and tummy will love.
This easy recipe is made from all-raw ingredients, which means no hanging around for the damn thing to cook. No need to boil pasta – zucchini makes an amazing low-carb substitute. These green squashes comprise mostly of water, making them a great low-calorie option if that’s your bag. They also help to keep you hydrated – perfect during the summer months when salad seems like the only option!
I love this recipe. It was inspired by a delicious deep-dish vegetable pie I had in Adelaide last year at vegan restaurant Pollen 185. The chef there told me how she had played around with the crust recipe for weeks before perfecting it, and then very generously passed that onto me. I’ve tinkered a little with it myself, but the deliciously crumbly texture remains the same. Fill it with whatever you want – I’ve gone for nutrient dense pumpkin and beets, but you can literally throw anything in there. Turn it into a quiche by pouring in whisked eggs into the crust.
Chickpea flour is made from either raw or roasted chickpeas, milled finely. It contains a higher proportion of protein than many others. It’s also
gluten free, making it a great flour alternative for anyone who suffers from gluten intolerance. It’s also mighty tasty. Grab some at your local health food store and let’s get baking!
