Last Update to Show You Where You Can Find Me on the Net

My personal blog:

My Twitter account:

It has been a long time since I have visited this blog.  A lot more research has been done on organic food and pesticides, so take care when looking at recipes I have posted.  There are too many to edit, I just don’t have the time anymore.  Just remember to use fresh and local ingredients.  Don’t use canola oil as I seemed to have mentioned in a few posts, just use olive oil.  Hope you have fun creating your own style of cooking, if you happen to get any inspiration from this food blog.

Note: This last update was made on 1st October 2014.

Here’s a picture of a green smoothie to inspire you to do something good for your body. 🙂

Eat Like a Bird…

Usually I DO eat like a bird but yesterday,  I went a little crazy.  I’m putting this up as a post because we were asked in the course that I’m doing at Suzan Johnston, what I ate the day before… which wasn’t much, but then there was Monday…

3 bowls of veggie soup.

2 Sushi rolls that were made with brown rice.

1 smiley face cookie.

half a twin pack of cranberry biscotti – shared with a classmate.

1 roast veggie and feta wrap- from the city 7/11 on Burke Street.

Finally I got home and ate a box of vegetable samosas.  I think there’s about 20 small cocktail size ones in there…

Needless to say I needed a Buscopan afterwards…  Lol.

If you’re hungry…Eat!

Raw Donuts…

I have been wondering what these things would taste like for ages and also wondered how complex they would be to make.  My verdict is the only similarity is the shape when you’re done.  The taste is nice but not the same as a cooked donut.

Here’s my recipe, which is not unlike other raw versions from other raw food blogs around the world.


1 cup of raw almonds – processed

1 cup of dried mango – chopped and processed

1 cup of dried pitted dates – soaked, chopped and processed

5 tablespoons of grated coconut

few drops of vanilla essence

Mix ingredients with clean hands, shape into a donut, put some icing if you wish, then eat.

Wheat Free Banana Bread

Is a sweet bread, also known as a “quick bread,” because it’s a recipe developed to make bread without yeast, which takes time to prove etc.  It’s so popular it has it’s own Facebook Fan page and Australia celebrates it every February on the 23rd.  Who knew? 

This one of course has to be wheatless and I thought I might challenge myself a little and make it vegan as well.  It turned out sweet, moist and chewy.  Yum.


2 ripe bananas mashed

1 banana whipped in the food processor

1/4 cup of maple syrup

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1 cup of rice flour

1 teaspoon of xanthium gum

1/4 cup of oatmilk or soya

1 tablespoon of vegan butter


Mix wet in with dry ingredients, put into an oven dish: (25.5 by 13.6 cm Tin)

Grease tin, put in oven for 45 minutes on 180C in a gas oven.

Oven Steamed Veggie Quinoa

Now this dish might look suspiciously similar to something made a few weeks ago and you’d be right, it is similar, but not the same.  It’s completely improved.  It’s all in the steaming of the Quinoa and Veg in the final stages of cooking the dish.  That’s why there is an extreme close up of this dish to show you the fluffiness of the Quinoa. (This dish is worth the time and effort, the results are melt in your mouth.)

This is what’s on the menu for dinner tonight.  : )

1 large zucchini chopped

1 large clove of garlic minced or chopped finely

1 cup of quinoa

2 1/2 cups of veggie stock

1/2 cup of grated soy cheese

1 cob of fresh corn shaved

1 can of asian veg (cos I feel like all my veggie dishes need extra crunch in them.)

1 table spoon of vegan butter

2 tablespoons of canola oil to cook.

Garnish with a handful of coriander leaves or whatever you like as a garnish.


Start off  by cooking the dish on the stove in  a wok.  Sweat off the garlic, add the quinoa and chopped zucchini and then the veggie stock.  Boil until the stock has been three quarters evaporated.  Add the rest of the veggies, stir through and then put ingredients into an oven dish which has it’s own lid or put some tin foil over the top.  Make sure you sprinkle the cheese over the top before you put  the cover over and just for your information I added a little oatmilk to add to the creaminess of the dish.

Bake in a gas oven of 200C for 25 minutes.

Wheat Free Zucchini Fritter

These little fritters went so fast.  This is another recipe straight from my mum’s kitchen.  What can I say, Turkey has  a lot of great vegetable dishes that just happen to taste great, are comforting and non-fat.  Too  good!


1 cup of wheatless flour

1 cup of oatmilk

1 cup of grated zucchini

some veggie salt to taste

2 eggs

1/2 a cup of canola oil or olive oil to cook with.


Mix all the ingredients together, shallow fry in hot oil.  Cook till golden brown, serve with some sweet chilli sauce.  Eat and be merry.  x
