Whether you’re a devout vegan or a flexitarian, eating out can be a challenge. You might avoid going out altogether because of limited choices and dietary requirements. When I first transitioned to a vegetarian, I was severely disappointed by how restricted my menu options were. But as the determined foodie I am, I tried many restaurants all around Canberra and found some absolute standouts.

Soup of the week: Green soup with crispy lemongrass tofu

Eat Canberra

I rarely buy magazines anymore especially food magazines. I think there’s a combination of reasons for this. Having access to the internet gives me endless sources of information and recipes, I don’t want to waste paper and have a stack of magazines I have to throw out (I did that for years), my bookshelf of cookbooks need to be used and I like to be creative. But I do love flicking through a magazine occasionally (when I have the time) especially when they’re packed with incredible recipes. Last weekend’s rainy weather kept me housebound where I cooked and ate most of the weekend. When I was doing the grocery shopping I spotted Taste.com.au Magazine and the comforting image of pumpkin soup and the text ‘101 cosy recipes’ won me over.

Lentil and Mushroom Bolognese

The girls I work with at my 9-5 job love and appreciate food (lucky for me) almost as much as I do! So lunch time is always a treat! Smelling the delicious meals as they warm up and asking “What’s for lunch?” is a ritual. A few weeks ago I smelt something particularly delicious as my colleague pulled her lunch from the microwave. “What’s for lunch?” I asked. She told me it was lentil and mushroom Bolognese. I was quite surprised at the answer and instantly intrigued. It smelt ah-mazing! Continue reading Lentil and Mushroom Bolognese
