A vibrant plate of purple dijon, lemon, and cumin beetroot hummus garnished with chickpeas and fresh coriander, served with a handful of dukkah spiced pita chips

As a self-confessed hummus addict, I went through a phase of experimenting with many different hummus flavours. I’ve tried avocado hummus, turmeric hummus, capsicum hummus, onion hummus, mushroom hummus, but this dijon, lemon, and cumin beetroot hummus is always my favourite. Is there anything more satisfying than hummus? Yes! Hummus that you can whip up in just 5 minutes! My luscious dijon, lemon, and cumin beetroot hummus made with chickpeas is […]

Dukkah Spiced Pita Chips

By Silvia Morris Sunday, 4 November 2018
A gun-metal blue ceramic plate with a pile of baked dukkah spiced pita chips

I can’t justify paying over $5 for a packet of baked pita chips at the supermarket, that contain no more than ten strips of pita (equal to around one piece of round pita bread). Why? Dukkah spiced pita chips are too cheap and easy to make at home! These dukkah spiced pita chips are deliciously fresh, crisp, and you can season them with whatever flavours you desire. Dukkah has such well-rounded flavours […]

A colourful bowl of Indonesian white bean gado gado served with a lime wedge, chopsticks, and peanut sauce

Indonesian white bean Gado Gado is one of my all-time favourite salads. A flavoursome bowl of fresh, crisp vegetables and tofu, drizzled with a spicy and nutty peanut dressing. It’s traditionally made with potatoes and egg, but I save some cooking time by making it with white beans. These have a texture quite similar to potatoes, with the benefit of added protein and nutrients. I created a delicious imitation runny […]

Three pulled jackfruit gyros with lemon, dairy-free yoghurt and salad, served with lemon wedges on a wooden chopping board

If you think that eating a plant-based diet means that you can’t eat gyros any more – think again! Just because I’m vegan, that’s not to say I don’t like them. I just like mine ethically made, and these delicious pulled jackfruit gyros with smokey BBQ sauce certainly deliver. It’s mind-blowing how much the texture and flavour of pulled jackfruit tastes like real meat. I season it with my special homemade […]

Salted peanut caramel!?! Need I say more? If you know me, then you’ll know I have a serious popcorn addiction. Being the salt-tooth that I am, I don’t usually enjoy sweet popcorn, and prefer to devour my popcorn with (vegan) butter and salt, or with nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavour….HOWEVER, this is my exception. This salted peanut caramel and chocolate popcorn has some sweetness without being overbearing. The saltiness […]

This Korean BBQ tempeh with salsa is proof that tempeh just got a whole lot sexier! Thinly sliced tempeh with Korean inspired BBQ marinade is complemented perfectly with the crispy green bean and pesto salsa, and toasted macadamias. You might think a fusion of Asian and Mediterranean flavours sounds a bit strange, but trust me, it works! This dish would make a delightful appetiser, or serve it with some rice […]

Powergreens Bowl with Pea, Spinach, & Tofu

Powergreens bowl with pea, spinach, tofu and dukkah served in a white ceramic bowl, next to crusty bread, half a lemon, and a small bowl of dukkah

My dad always has had his pride and joy: his organic veggie patch and fruit trees. As a kid, and when spinach was in season, my mum used to make me big a powergreens bowl of blended spinach with mashed potatoes which she called spinacha. It was my absolute favourite food, and I’d always ask her to make for me. Recently, while reminiscing about how delicious those meals were, I […]
