Vegan Chickpea & Hummus Rissoles

These are little balls of vegan goodness, with slow releasing carbs and plant protein from the chickpeas and not forgetting super spice turmeric and a little bit of fire with the chilli! All the yummy feels! These guys make for an unbeatable lunch and mid slump snack to pick you up!

Jumbo King Prawns in Chilli Sauce

Being a busy working mama, it's not often I get to cook a decadent 2 or even 3 course meal; however, every now and then I love to invite the whole family round and put on a feast that's fit for kings and queens!

Prawn Stir-Fry with Rice Noodles

We love a stir-fry in this house, quick and easy to rustle up, bursting with colour and flavour and punch. My eldest son, Oliver dislikes chilli so we make a separate batch for him, but my youngest Alexander loves a bit of kick to his food and gobbles it up, chilli and all!

butternut squash soup

Butternut Squash Soup

It's Tasty Tuesdays again and today is all about butternut squash soup! The dreamiest version I ever tasted was made by my good friend Rachael a few years back; it was creamy (yet didn't have any cream or crème fraîche in it), silky in texture and golden in colour... mine has never quite matched up but it's good enough and the kids love it.
