French Loaf, the only bread you’ll ever need

This bread might be the only bread recipe you’ll ever need. It’s super easy (even my kids can make it) and incredibly versatile. Toast it for breakfast. Use it for sandwiches at lunch. Roll out thin like a baguette to serve with charcuterie. Or, serve hot from the oven along side soup or stew for dinner. When it starts to go dry, use it for french toast or dice and toast for croutons.

Paneer and Peppers

This quick stir fried Indian dish is perfect for a weekday dinner. Paneer and peppers makes a simple, yet delicious combination that cooks up less than 15 minutes! I like this dish with a good amount of heat which is complimented by the mild flavour of paneer, and cooking the peppers until they’ve just begun to soften adds a nice sweetness.

Simply Spicy Cabbage Sabzi

I simply love good bitter flavours brought to life with salt and spice! This Spicy Cabbage Sabzi is a perfect answer to my craving. The addition of the fresh green cilantro really freshens up the dish. Similarly, the quick squeeze of lemon gives it a nice kick of acid adding brightness and balancing out the earthy bitterness of the cabbage and spices.

Indian-Style Egg Rice

Egg Rice is a go lunch or dinner that my mother-in-law makes for my boys using leftover rice. It cooks up quickly in the pan with just a handful of basic ingredients. Served with yoghurt, it’s a great way to introduce some basic Indian flavours.

Besan Chila (chickpea pancakes)

Besan Chila (chickpea pancakes) are thin, spiced pancakes often served with yogurt as an Indian breakfast food. We love them for a quick and easy kid-approved dinner!

Black Bean Quinoa Salad with Mango

A delicious Black Bean Quinoa Salad with creamy avocado and tangy sweet mango, this dish is definitely a crowd-pleaser! The dish is rounded out with some earthiness brought by baby spinach and cilantro and finished with lemon and chili powder. Filling, but not heavy, this Black Bean Quinoa Salad is absolutely mouthwatering on a summer’s day.
