Spanakopita Pie with Capsicum

spinach pie recipes

This recipe really surprised me, I wasn’t going to cook it as I’m really fussy with spinach dishes because I actually don’t like spinach. Well silverbeet anyway, I actually love baby spinach in all my salads.

The best may to describe the taste of silverbeet would be DIRT. lol I hate the stuff. But it is really good for you, so I was really happy to find this recipe and LOVE IT!

This pie has a perfect balance of herbs which takes that silverbeet taste away. Especially the mint, one of my favourite herbs.

Pumpkin and Spinach Rotolo Bake

Pumpkin Recipes

A great vegetarian recipe and the family won’t even notice that they are not getting any meat. This is a reasonably easy recipe. And to make it even quicker you can use a jar of store bought pasta sauce. But if you have the time make your own, it always tastes better and you know exactly what’s going into it.Continue Reading

Couscous and Red Kidney Bean Burgers

vegetarian burger recipes

Im always on the hunt for a nice veggie burger in the hopes of converting my unhealthy husband. He eats them but complains while eating lol. He didnt complain too much about this one, which is great. But as I’ve made this vegan friendly I couldn’t post a picture of his burger. Oh yes it was loaded up with cheese, sour cream and sweet chilli sauce (no salad might I add). So he turned my healthy veggie burger into a not so healthy veggie burger. Continue Reading

Pumpkin, Fig and Chickpea Salad

This is a really filling salad. And its also a sweet salad which I loved. Im a fan of figs and they were a really nice combination of flavours with the spices and coriander. BUT once again I got complaints from the husband (no surprises here lol). I even questioned myself about posting this recipe, because he hated it so much.But I ate the left overs the next day and I still liked it the next day. I would love  somebody elses opinion on this one.

He didn’t like the honey in it. Um what honey? lol I think he meant the sweetness of the fig. I swear this man thinks he has an allergy to fruit!Continue Reading
