Rubix Roast Vege Salad

Fill of crunch, flavour and nutrition

Rubix Roast Vege Salad

This such a yum salad, fill of colour, flavours and textures. Use whichever vegetables are in season or a selection that you know will be popular. The vegetable prep is a bit tedious and time consuming (I quadrupled this recipe for an event and there was a lot of chopping) but the outcome was worth it. 

Enjoy!

Winter Roast Veggie Salad

Colour up your diet with this yummy medley!

Winter Roast Veggie Salad

When it's a little brrr outside lets get our ovens cranking and load our bodies up on some nutrient dense veggies. Seasonal vegetables can fluctuate in price point so I modify this recipe depending what is available and how labour intensive I want to make it!

Why not try to aim for as many colours as you can. I encourage you to eat at least 16 different foods in a day...this salad will chop a good 10 off if you're clever with herbs and veggies. 

Creative Couscous with lamb shanks

On the table in 5mins!

Creative Couscous with lamb shanks

I love a recipe that literally takes 5mins...especially when it tastes as great as this. I don't really like following a 'plan', but like to scan the pantry and fridge for options to add. My advice to you, just trial and error with flavours till you get it right! 

Our kids are not fussed on couscous so I substituted leftover rice for them. 

Courgette, fruit & nut Loaf

Courgette, fruit & nut Loaf

The perfect morning tea snack fill of sustaining energy!

I love this loaf; moist but but full of flavour and texture. I also love knowing that with every mouthful we're getting some great nutrients that a packaged snack couldn't provide. We have been baking and freezing these loaves while courgettes, zucchini and even marrows are appearing in our garden during these hot humid days.
