Mexican Mince Stuffed Butternuts

I love stuffing vegetables with mince. Capsicums are perhaps my favourite, but courgettes, kumara, and these lovely butternuts are all delicious! The size of your squash, as well as the amount of seeds in it (and thus the thickness of flesh), will determine how much cooking it requires. Ideally, you’ll…

Slow-cooked Coriander & Cumin Pork Sandwiches

Naming these sandwiches was taxing. There are so many ingredients, so many delicate elements, so it’s difficult to tell what the salient flavours really are. Pesto and camembert? Pork Vienna?

Satay Peanut Breakfast Bowl

This delicious bowl of carrot, tuna, eggs, and peanut sauce is sort of like the Indonesian dish “gado gado”. Think of it as a healthy ‘bacon and eggs’ type of breakfast, Asian-style! This bowl packs a super punch of protein. Eggs also provide Vitamins A, Bs, and D, phosphorous, biotin,…
