While we aren’t ready to go totally veg just yet, it’s something that husband and I are slowly gravitating towards. This week, we haven’t eaten any meat and the children haven’t missed it at all.

Green Beans and Bok Choy


500g green beans, topped and tailed

bunch bok choy, washed

2 tomatoes, quartered

pinch fenugreek seeds (methi)

salt to taste

chilli powder to taste

2 tbsp oil


Heat oil to med/high heat and add fenugreek seeds till they become fragrant

Add green beans, bok choy, tomato, chilli powder and salt

Stir and reduced heat to med

We like the veges a bit crunchy but you can keep on stove until cooked through.

Serve as a side, husband had his with eggs and his gluten free bread (which to me oddly has the texture of cake – it’s known as cakebread in our house)

Comfort Food

Finally I am getting well.

I am truly blessed with good health and it scares me to think that this good health can get taken away from me in a second.

Luckily for my baby, my appetite never waned and even while suffering the flu, my milk production was awesome. Here’s one of my favourite comfort foods-

Sweet potato with chilli: (yes, I know it’s in a pasta dish!)


Cut sweet potatoes into thin chip shapes, place in oven 160^C for about 5-10 minutes or until just cooked. If you like them crispy then you can cut them really thin and cook for longer – I much prefer these soft and mushy. Arrange in plate, sprinkle lemon juice then chilli powder and fresh coriander leaves.


Instant (well in the 10 mins it takes too cook the potato) comfort!
