One-pot Pumpkin Kaffir Lime Soup

If you, like me, are looking for inspiring recipes to get you through the cooler months, I have good news. Here’s a simple soup recipe with simple ingredients that fill that spot. For me, that spot is fabulous in Australia. Here are a few tips I’d like to share with you: When you buy kaffir lime leaves, remember they can be stored in the freezer in a sealed bag.

Savoury Quiche Roasted Pumpkin with Caramelized Onion

Omg. This was absolutely fantastic and the flavour is simply epic! It’s so important to find and use fresh ingredients, especially for me as a chef. Flavourful ingredients start with how it’s grown, and when you are able to grow plants, veggies, and anything else in your little garden – it is totally a game changer. For all my plant-based friends out there who are vegan, this is for you! I would totally serve this hot or cold with balsamic glaze, a yummy salad and some roasted nuts tossed through for a little crunch. Happy EATing
