Asparagus and artichoke cous cous salad with falafel

Asparagus and artichoke cous cous salad with falafel

My first creation since coming home is packed with the best, boldest flavours – spicy jalapenos, tangy lemon and sumac, salty feta, and fresh spring onions, among even more good stuff. It might look light enough, but the combination of falafel and lentils give this meal some serious filling power. Packed into a wrap or eaten straight from the fork, this meal really hits the spot. Ditch the feta and use hommus instead of yoghurt for an (almost) equally delicious vegan option. More

While travelling in the RV in a foreign country, you've got to keep the cooking simple! This easy stir fry uses a sauce straight out of the jar to save on excess ingredients. This one was really flavourful, which saved us having to marinate the tofu. The broccoli, capsicum and bok choy work beautifully, but you can substitute whatever's available. More

How to harvest and use the seeds from pumpkin

When you fry them with a bit of olive oil and spices, pumpkin seeds become a delicious snack that also just happens to be the single best vegan protein source in existence. At least, that's what a Pinterest pictograph told me once. More

White bean and za'atar soup with toasted sesame seeds

This easy, hearty soup is a perfect winter warmer. I love the za'atar flavours of sumac, thyme, and sesame seeds, and cannelini beans are the perfect blank canvas to serve them with. And really, who doesn't love anything involving Turkish bread? More
