Indian-spiced Roasted Cauliflower with Mint Raitha

A lot of my cooking inspiration comes from the fresh food aisle in the local supermarket. There is never dearth of ideas there. Recently, neatly packed boxes of Jamie Oliver’s products caught my attention; it had raw cauliflower florets, a pack of ready-to-use-spice and mint yoghurt dip. All you have […]

Caprese Bruschetta

It is a pleasant day today and wanted something light and refreshing to eat. I was not up to some major cooking or even chopping for that matter. All I wanted to have was something quick and light. After raiding the fridge and pantry, I saw some ingredients sitting pretty. […]

Corn and Bean Salad

Today is one of those days for me when I feel happy for no particular reason. This despite it being a cold and rainy day. Not that I am complaining; I generally feel content and pleased with my simple life. To keep up the great mood I was in I […]

Pasta with Stir Fried Veggies

Bless the Italians for creating pasta! The oh-so-versatile noodle is a lifesaver in the kitchen. It works great as mains for dinner/lunch, salads and soups. There are thousands of things you could make with pasta. Soupy, saucy, dry, hot or cold, take your pick. Today, though, I am making a […]

It is pure joy to consume snacks that are low in calories and carbs yet delish. The baked cauliflower tots are a delightfully guilt-free, tasty and nutritious snack. The vitamin-rich cauliflower is combined with cheese and complementing ingredients, and then baked till it turns a crispy golden colour. This snack […]

Stir-fried Bean Sprouts

This one of the crunchiest and quickest stir-fries I have made ever. The crunchy bean sprouts is the star of this dish, and complements beautifully with other stir-fry ingredients. Bean sprout has found a happy spot in Asian cuisine, and is used in various dishes like soups, salads, stir fries […]

Kale Chips

Despise greens? Kale chips is a guaranteed way to make you fall in love with greens. Ever since kale gained its ‘superfood’ status, kale chips has enjoyed the well-deserved popularity. I enjoy kale in this form the most. Move over, potato chips, this crispy, a crunchy snack is here to […]

Low-fat Creamy Pasta Salad

Pasta-based salads are a favourite with a lot of people. In fact, the common sight at salad bars is people indulging in a large serving of pasta salad with that extra helping or two of mayonnaise/aoli/sour cream. How cool would it be to have a not-so-fatty version of the salad? […]
