Beetroot bircher

My Dad has been harping  on for a while now about beets for breakfast; I think he considers it the secret to a long and healthy life.  There’s no doubt this funny-looking purple vegetable packs a punch in terms of nutrient density

Ricotta filled, orange scented doughnuts

Almost two years ago now, while travelling around southern Italy for a few weeks, we happened upon a small café in the town square of Catania, Sicily, with a counter stacked high with sweet treats. Choosing to forgo the famous cannoli, I bought the biggest doughnut I could find

Festive spiced nuts

After not writing a blog post for a while I want to say so much about 2015 it really all boils down to being content with the year I’ve had and excited for the year ahead.   Although I’ve been light on posts

Spiced Apple Cider

It might officially be spring, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t still a chill in the air down here in Dunedin. So enjoy the longer spring nights tucked up indoors with a glass of this hot spiced apple cider to warm you up from the inside out.

Curried avocado and cauliflower

I’ve been on a sabbatical from contributing recipes to our blog.  Unlike Richie’s 2013 rugby sabbatical mine has been unintended…and with less effect on both the team and the nation.  With Richie giving the country a massive shoulder-ride at the moment, I shouldn’t really compare my situation to that of this great human, but I [...]

Chicken salad

Vegan food is not something that comes naturally to me (how do you milk an almond???). My exposure to it was certainly limited growing up in Hamilton, one of the livestock capitals of the world. But a vegetarian flatmate and the lunch special at the Curry Pot (Naan, rice, raita, a chicken curry and a [...]

Kimchi

I have been AWOL from Our Kitchen for some months; I was on holiday in September, but I promise this recipe makes up for my absenteeism. I want to talk about kimchi/ kimchee/gimchi (김치) – this traditional Korean dish of fermented vegetables is set to trend massively in 2015 and I wanted to be a [...]

Saag Aloo pie

Becky works alongside me as one of our cooking product evaluators and she never fails to come up with new and inventive ways to test our cooking products. Her passion for cooking equates to a lot of delicious ‘engineer feed’ coming out of the lab so we asked her to whip up a favourite for [...]

Gluten free carrot cake with cashew icing
