Reduce your carbon footprint by eating the right kinds of dairy

Reduce your carbon footprint by eating the right kinds of dairy

Vegetarianism, though infinitely better for the planet than eating meat, still leaves a lot to be desired compared with veganism. After all, cheese is third only to beef and lamb in per-kilo greenhouse gas emissions. But I kind of love cheese, and non-dairy milks just don't cut it for me in coffee. Thankfully, dietary choices don’t have to be an all-or-nothing game. Here's a list of dairy choices we can make to reduce our footprint without giving up this delicious food group altogether. More

Roast pumpkin and carrot salad with lentils and zesty citrus dressing

Roast pumpkin and carrot salad with lentils and zesty citrus dressing

I love the robust, earthy combination of ground cumin and smoked paprika with root vegetables, and in this hearty salad these spices shine through beautifully, tempered by the sweet tang of orange zest.

Today I want to tell you the story of my enchanting New Year's Eve, spent with good friends in a little hut nestled deep in the forest of Mount Aspiring National Park on the west coast of New Zealand. More

How to save the world, one step at a time

How to save the world, one step at a time

During this horrific time, it's easy to feel hopeless. But none of us are without power. So I've been thinking hard about what I can do to make a difference. We all have a responsibility now to do whatever we can to help save this beautiful, burning, drowning world from what can sometimes seem like inevitable destruction. It isn't inevitable. We can change this. But we need to do just that – change. More

Rice noodles with Asian greens and lemon sesame dressing

Rice noodles with Asian greens and lemon sesame dressing

I've always loved the combination of lemon and sesame with greens. I often find Asian flavours difficult to replicate at home, but you can't go wrong with the powerful yet delicate flavour of sesame oil, and the rice noodles absorb the flavours beautifully in this dish. Brown sugar, soy sauce, turmeric, and chilli powder complete the flavour profile with just the right amount of sweetness, saltiness, bitterness, and spice. More

Bruschetta-inspired tomato and balsamic pizza

Bruschetta-inspired tomato and balsamic pizza

I love the bursting flavours of bruschetta, and they work just as well in pizza format! Flavoursome kumato tomatoes steal the show, supported by generous portions of lightly roasted red onion, red capsicum, fresh basil, and feta cheese. The sweet, tart bursts of balsamic and the crunch of fresh baby rocket complement the soft, juicy vegetables for a seriously special pizza experience! More

Avocado and feta toast with lime, sumac, and toasted sesame seeds

Avocado and feta toast with lime, sumac, and toasted sesame seeds

Anyone who knows me will tell you I am an absolute toast fiend. So when I tell you this toast is my favourite of all time, you know it means something! The classic combination of avocado and feta is already amazing on its own, but add in the tang of sumac and the acidity of lime juice and you have something pretty special. More

Roast pumpkin and red onion with white bean and feta toast

Roast pumpkin and red onion with white bean and feta toast

Pumpkin and red onion are a match made in heaven. Add in white beans, feta, rocket, and balsamic and you've got a classic savoury combination that just never gets old. The greatest thing about this meal is the lack of knifework. Baking whole pumpkin slices with the skin on and halving the onions rather than dicing them makes this meal about as hassle-free as it gets. More

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
