  2. Pesto again!

    Dad had a crazy big basil plant, so I’ve made some pesto from it. Half way through I remembered that the raw garlic was super strong and hot last time, but it tasted milder this time. Instead of blending the basil, I hand-chopped it, and after adding olive oil and garlic I massaged the mixture by hand so that the flavour combines well. No pine nuts but used sunflower seeds instead and it worked really well. Lots of shaved parmesan was added, too.

    Served with some pan-fried balsamic chicken strips.

  3. Exotic smoothie

    Morning drink: dragon fruit (amazing colour!!!), guava, pineapple and carrots. Forgot the ice cubes, but it was delicious nonetheless. To make it even more healthy I probably would’ve added some spinach or something, but they only had massive bunches in the shop here. The guava was like an apple but a bit hard and sort of tasteless… maybe not ripe enough.

  4. Very simple triple-green salad

    Had to use up my salad leaves, okra, spinach and cherry tomatoes. Boiled the spinach and okra, dash of soy sauce after draining. The rest is drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. A quick ‘I need to eat something healthy’ sort of salad.

  5. Lunch box
Mix of healthy things - had to use up most of my food in the weeks coming up to moving out of Vauxhall. Salad leaf base, mix of couscous and quinoa, cherry tomatoes, grilled chilli halloumi with mint and smoked salmon on the side. 
Didn’t season the couscous and quinoa (except for some black pepper) because of the strong flavours of the halloumi and salmon. Added a bit of balsamic vinegar on the whole salad.

  6. Spicy Korean pork slices on rice
豚キムチ丼
Mama visited from Japan so we made a ton of food. Miso soup and vegetables on the side, and some green tea.

  7. Best friend breakfast

    Robyn unfortunately overslept, so Lily and I indulged in plenty of eggs, smoked salmon, cheddar, coffee and vegetable juice to kick off a Sunday.

  8. Summer salad with halloumi and cherries

    Random combination that I wanted to try out - bought all ingredients at Pimlico market during my lunch. Basic salad with sauteed spinach, slightly melted halloumi, cherry tomatoes and actual cherries.

    Halloumi tastes so good when cooked with mint. Just some balsamic vinegar as dressing for this fresh summer salad.

  9. Maple duck with honey-roasted carrots and red wine and mint asparagus

    Was going to re-create Duck & Waffles’ signature dish, but didn’t have the waffle nor the duck egg, so created a different dish… Maple syrup on duck goes so damn well.
