Roasted pumpkin and capsicum couscous salad

Cous cous is something I forget I have in the pantry. It gets pushed to the back, but I am always glad to see it when I go looking hard enough. It's like finding a long lost friend. I fondly speak to it, "Oh cous cous. Hello. Where have you been?". Yes I am a weirdo. Here's what I did with my long lost friend. This salad is great warm or cold. 1 cup couscous 1/4 of a butternut pumpkin, diced 1 capsicum, chopped into large dice ( I used a bit of yellow, red and green) 1 tablespoon olive oil…

Pea and fennel salad

We've had one of the coldest winters here in a while, but rainfall has been down on previous years. I don't remember seeing so many rainbows ever, so it means there was some drizzle about. It seemed ironic that the first morning of Spring, there was frost on the ground. It was bloody freezing that morning. I am so glad the warmer days are on their way, and more than happy to have the longer days of daylight savings return in a month. I have been eating so much healthier of late. I've been…

Brown rice and quinoa tabbouleh

I always hear about how good quinoa is for my health, and I should be eating it. But dang, it costs an arm and a leg! Whenever I see it at the supermarket, I look at it and think I should buy some of that. I then look at the price and think, nah, fuck it. I am however happy to buy Sunrice's Brown rice and quinoa. For around four dollars, I get the health benefits without the price sting. My mum is a gun at growing herbs and veggies, and her parsley plants are so big. Lately when I go visit…

This story starts at the local IGA, while I was doing our "big" shop, which happens once a fortnight. I had just finished, and passed the "marked down" trolley, which is usually almost or out of date. Of course I have to have a look. I reach in and grab a 59c packet of chips, and a $1.50 bag of burghul. My mind instantly thinks Tabouleh. I don't really get the opportunity to eat much of it, there is a kebab shop in Centro in Mt Gambier(a town 50km away) that sells it, but it's not often I go…

Watermelon Salad

With the warmer weather heating us and our houses, as we get outdoors for dining, entertaining and cranking up the barbie, it's time to turn to salads instead of veggies for our dinners. Using whatever's on hand, in the pantry or fridge, the garden even, I love mixing it up and having something different besides the normal coleslaw and tossed salads, which there is nothing wrong with, they are reliable standards and we love them. 1 kilo watermelon flesh, cut in chunks 1/2 onion, sliced…

Green Bean Salad

I love this salad, it brings back great food memories from my mums kitchen and the spreads she put on our kitchen table. I could eat a whole bowl full of this stuff. I have just started getting beans aplenty from the garden, this is the first thing I have done with them. We had them cold, but makes an good warm salad as well. I made this using a couple of handfuls of fresh green beans straight from the garden, boiled for about 5 minutes, not even that. You can leave the beans whole or cut in…

Potato, pea and mint salad

My mint, growing in a half barrel near the chook house, is flowering right now. I love the smell as I brush past to open the gate. The purple potato plant is flowering now too. I have them growing in a pot by the veggie patch. Next time I'll put them in a bigger pot I think, it's as easy as tipping out the pot when they are ready and not digging to look for them. I've just topped up the pot with some composted sheep poo. Potato, pea and mint salad 1 kilogram of pototoes, chopped into 2cm…

Papaya Marinated steak w/ papaya salad

This may sound like a papaya overload, but it's not. There's other flavours going on, and if you didn't know the marinade had papaya in it, you wouldn't realise. Little Summer loved the papaya raw, couldn't get enough. Izzy is my fussy, nose screwer upper and wouldn't have a bar of it. She did eat the marinated steak though. I actually like eating the raw red papaya as my morning fruit. They are packed with vitamins and minerals. So good for you. I use the peels on my face. The flesh is…

Papaya Salsa

Half a papaya, diced 1/4 medium red onion, finely diced 1/4 green capsicum, finely diced 2 vietnamese mint leaves, finely shredded 2 Tablespoons parsley, chopped 2 Tablespoons lime juice Mix all together. Serve with seafood, chicken or pork. It would be equally as awesome with a bit of pineapple added to it, or whatever else you fancy, tomato, cucumber. You could use coriander and a little chilli in the place of the vietnamese mint. I used the mint because that's what I have growing right…
