Glazed Roasted Carrots & Sweet Potato

Mmmm… another play on allowing simple flavours to speak for themselves! I had a sweet potato to use up and was inspired to bake it with a bit of a sweet, indulgent twist. When is coconut oil not a good idea to use in cooking your vegetables? Not only does it add a wealth of … Continue reading

Curried Broccoli Fried Rice

I made a big pot of delicious basmati rice on the weekend and had quite a bit left over that needed to be used up. It’s been a bit cool and rainy the past few days so I was craving something warming, energizing, and satisfying, and after a long day of work followed by an … Continue reading
