Recipes

  • Sweet Apple Squares

    Using the base recipe for ‘Sweet Squares’ from my cookbook, The Unwrapped Lunchbox, I came up with this delish addition to pack up for school.  I possibly packed it for work too!
  • Borlotti Bean Soup

    Turns out the little beans are quite the little powerhouses of fibre and plant-based protein!
  • Brauli Rice

    I must say, I’m a bit of a fan of Cauliflower Rice!  It’s a fabulous replacement for the carb-loaded grains of ‘normal’ rice or couscous.  This we...
  • Roasted Ratatouille

    I first learned to make Ratatouille in Paris
  • Protein Berry Porridge

    Grain free, high protein and packed full of berry goodness, this mid-week breakfast feels like an indulgence.
  • Broccoli Pasta

    An easy Sunday dinner throw together - Broccoli Pasta ticks all the boxes for a comfort food!
  • Celebration Sponge

    Refined sugar, dairy and gluten free Sponge Cake ... yes please!@
  • Mexi Bean Bowl

    Mexican deliciousness in a bowl!
  • Fish Burrito (Bowls)

    One of the (many) positives of living on the Gold Coast is that we are surrounded by water.  The seafood is fresh and plentiful. Bonus points for friends with boats! One such friend recently shared his haul with us … winning!  More than 1kg of freshly caught Marlin. And the best bit? He filleted and sliced if for us too! I froze half and pulled it out during the week for a quick, easy and healthy meal the whole family was excited about!
  • Veggie-Loaded Bolognese

    Who doesn’t love a good bolognese?  It’s hands-down my kids’ favourite! This is a variation on the recipe I learned to cook in Méribel, France with a dear friend of mine, Bichon.  I added a whole lot of veggies and simmer it in the slow cooker for most of the day - perfect for those crazy-busy afternoons when you just can’t fathom cooking.  
  • Simple Leftover Roast Salad

    When I roast a chicken, I always roast two.  Slightly more effort to prepare, same oven time, same clean up time, no fights over the thighs and plenty left over for lunches.  I also make sure I through in some pumpkin - I have a slight obsession with its versatility!
  • Beetroot and Mint Hummus

    Whipped up in under five minutes and stored in the fridge for about a week, it's a great for a snack or taking to a BBQ along with your favourite crackers!
