Just some photos of recent foods

I've been varying between imaginative and fun foods, and just cooking something as quickly as possible for nomming after the gym. Not that the two are separate concepts, but I've been having a lack-of-imagination moment or twelve.

I hosted a bbq for friends on the day before Australia Day. I made really exciting gluten free burgers and lamingtons, but only really managed to get photos of the entrees:

Sundried Tomato Mini Quiches

Pastry of gluten free flour, nooch, oil from sundried tomatoes & iced water. Filling of soy cream cheese, silken tofu, nooch, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper.

Not!Tuna Salad

Variation on a theme: chickpeas, walnuts, pickled cucumbers, capers, dill, seaweed flakes, sesame seeds, soy mayonnaise, lemon juice, celery, flaxseed oil, salt.

The weather in Sydney has gotten very rainy in recent days. I love this weather, and love cooking in it. I'm trying for high protein, low processed carbs, so came up with this ugly but tasty meal:

Tempeh Stew with Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Tempeh "stew" (sort of more of a sauce, really): grated zucchini, carrot, tempeh, onion, garlic, tomato paste, tomatoes, chilli, mixed herbs, Worcestershire sauce, Braggs, lemon juice. Sweet potatoes tossed with olive oil and sea salt, baked in a hot oven whilst the stew cooked.

Finally, a concoction in my favoured theme of "beans'n'greens":

Butter Bean and Spinach Pasta Soup

Minced garlic and lemon zest, butter beans (half mashed), lemon juice, pasta cooking liquid, nooch & finely chopped spinach. Could be a pasta sauce, but I enjoyed it as a broth-like soup.

I made a fabby roasted capsicum spicy BBQ sauce tonight, will get the recipe up soon!

What's your favourite recent meal?
