Pine & Pistachio Nuts
Recipe by: her.be.laur
Description: Quick, easy, tasty, nutritious, & flexible
Ingredients: 1 cup Quinoa, 1 1/4 cup Water (optional: use 3/4 cup water and 1/2 cup veggie stock), 1/4 Butternut pumpkin, 1 Red capsicum, 2 cups Spinach, 30g pinenuts, 30g Pistachios, 2tbsp vegan mayonaise or cheese spread or dressing
1. Preheat oven to 180’C
2. Cut pumpkin and capsicum into 1-2cm cubes
3. Place cubed veggies on baking tray lined with baking paper — put in pre-heated oven for 20-30 mins (may need a bit longer if not fan-forced)
3. Rinse and cook quinoa as per package instructions (optional: add veggie stock for additional flavour)
4. Rinse and drain fresh spinach
5. When veggies and quinoa are ready (and still hot), mix together with spinach in a bowl (the heat/moisture will help to wilt the spinach)
6. Add nuts and sauce
7. Mix well
8. Eat while still warm, or pop in the fridge for later.
NOTES: The beauty of salads is that you can increase or replace the grain, the veggies, the nuts, or the dressing (anything really) to your taste.

Thai Herb in Harrison have a lot of new vegan options on their online takeaway menu, just look for the little ‘V’ with a leaf sprout. Tried a vegan option Pad Thai. Other folks had the veggo option. Mine was full of veggies, fresh and tasty, theirs was mostly egg, little fresh veggies and too salty. I’d go back!
Au Lac is a highly popular Vegan dining establishment with an extensive menu.

I’ve had a few requests for this recipe so I thought I’d chuck it up here
Though this serves 6-7 decent meals, it works just as well halved.
Potato and Kalamata Olive Stew
150ml olive oil
1.5kg potatoes, cut into medium chunks (about as big as a ping pong ball )
1 bulb of garlic peeled and coarsely chopped (feel free to add more, it loses some of its flavour after cooking)
600g jar of kalamata olives, sliced up
500g jar of sundried tomatoes, chopped
250ml wine (red or white, doesn’t matter)
250ml stock (again, whatever)
5 tablespoons of dried mixed herbs
Using a large soup pot, heat the oil on medium-high and add the potatoes and garlic. Cook until the garlic gets a bit seethrough.
Add the tomatoes, olives, herbs, wine and stock and mix well.
Cover the pot and let it simmer (stirring every once in a while) until the potatoes are done to your liking. Mine take about 25 – 35 minutes.
Serve with crusty bread and a green salad.
Done, go eat
