Pork and Smoky Beans

A very quick, beautiful and versatile dish that can be served with breakfast, brunch, or as a side for dinner.  If you’re a vegan / vegetarian, just leave out the bacon or add a soy alternative like sgaia.  This recipe is also divine, served crumbled with some feta cheese or with regular cheddar and finished under the grill – totally up to you.

Breakfast

Chickpea, Corn and Coconut Patties

When you’re friends turn up to your BBQ, with that mate who eats ‘nothing with a face’, turn your frown upside down with these crispy, delicious babies. Oh yes, once you get one of these between two buns who needs meat? (well I do, but they won’t care because these are incredible). Pair with my coconut slaw and a dash of hot sauce and Mama is in TOWN!! Also, these babies are GF too!

Breakfast

Cashew Nut Pesto

I make this pesto every week, why, because it can be used with so many different dishes. Try it in sandwiches, on pizza, with grilled meats or drizzle through a good soup. Fabulous on an anti pasta platter or tossed through some pasta or mashed potato. Even for breakfast on hot toast with avocado……oohhh… somebody stop me!

Breakfast

Popsie’s Banging Tomato Chutney

Whether I grow 1,2 or 5 tomato plants, at the end of the Summer season, I always have enough tomatoes for my whole neighbourhood, which luckily for me is a good thing.  Homegrown tomatoes (or any for that matter), especially freshly picked and full of the sun are the perfect ingredient for this sweet n easy chutney. This recipe belonged to my children’s grandfather, Popsie, who was a fab home cook and my best friend.

Breakfast

Chocolate Spice, Banana & Nuts Pinwheels

These pinwheels will spin YOUR wheels.  For breakfast, morning / afternoon tea.  Finish to a decadent dinner party treat with cream or just because you want something indulgent to tuck into, in front of the TV with your slippers on.  Sweet, sticky and moreish, just like me……. hahahahaha!
