Cauliflower Quinoa Salad

I caught up with a friend after work on Friday; the last time we had seen each other was early December before she went on holidays and then both of us had the end of year rush. We got up to speed with most of what’s been happening, and asked one another if we had…

Coconut Quinoa

Originally I hadn’t been planning on posting the recipe to this up at all, as it really is not a very photogenic dish. However I received quite an insistent response on my Facebook page and Instagram, and so I’ve decided to write a little about it and pass on another breakfast idea for you folks…

Hazelnut Pumpkin Quinoa Salad

Over the Christmas break there was a couple of days where The Sister joined me for dinner at mine. During this time, her fiance was still interstate with his family, and as they had only moved recently to their new place, she was so unfamiliar with the kitchen that she didn’t even know how to…

Salmon Quinoa Salad

I, by no means, live a very healthy lifestyle. Always the fatty at heart, I’m at my happiest when I’m merrily stuffing my face, and it’s only when the next days hit that I realise how slightly off-balance I feel after a bout of indulgence. This is when I go through a ‘detox’ phase, which…

Pablo & Rusty’s

It was about time for Kulinary Adventures of Kath and I to have another foodie date, and while we both had a Friday morning free, we both needed to be at Macquarie University by lunch time, me for my Pilates class, her for a law tutorial. I was stuck for suggestions as to where to go when…

Mushroom, Quinoa & Thyme Risotto

“Have you made risotto before?” (Awkward cough) “Errrrr…from a packet.” HEY it’s called Star Risotto and The Sister even knows Italians who use it, okay? But sure, I’m a food blogger and foodie and so I should know how to make risotto. I’ve made paella before and surely it can’t be much harder than that,…

Quinoa Granola

For most people, it’s not news that breakfast is the most important meal of your day. From memory, the saying goes: ‘Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper.’ And while I understand that a good breakfast is the key to kick-starting your day, I’ll readily put my hand…

Prawn, Avocado & Quinoa Salad

And so continues the quinoa ‘health’ trend. I tried my hand at quinoa last week for the first time, to great success (see here), but at the time I hadn’t thought that a single cup of quinoa grain would make me close to four cups worth of the stuff. While I had used as much…

Paprika Chicken with Quinoa Tabbouleh

So I am currently experiencing the manic excitement that comes with having… NO PARENTS IN THE HOUSE. Which essentially means cooking for yourself. While I’d say that my culinary skills are slightly better than the average Josephine, I will admit that I rarely do any ‘cooking, cooking’ at home. The reason for this is that…
