For the health conscious this is a great selection of gluten free and low GI recipes for you to try. Options include brown rice, grain and bean dishes.
This deliciously light and moist cake is both gluten-free and dairy-free so it's great if you've got intolerant eaters with a sweet tooth. It's my own recipe that comes from a cross between traditional orange and almond cake and apple upside down cake. It's not the prettiest cake around but it is the perfect accompaniment to morning or afternoon tea... ENJOY!
A perfect salad for a BBQ, bring-a-plate or potluck. Also makes a fine vegetarian summer dinner. A tasty mix of beans, nuts, rice and veggies.
Don't be afraid of the salt marinade - it makes the skin crispy and the flesh unbelievably sweet. Keen to hear from others who marinate for longer than I.
This Mexican-inspired chilli is sandwiched between layers of cheesy polenta and baked into a savoury vegetarian casserole. Extra chilli can be garnished with shredded cheese, chopped spring onions, a dollop of sour cream and a splash of Tabasco sauce and served with cornbread for an easy meal.
These are an Indian side dish but oven baked rather than fried, which is traditional. They are flavoured with garlic, chilli and coriander.
Exceptionally flavourful, lamb is a super source of niacin and zinc. Like all the other types of red meat, it also supplies a useful amount of iron.
Quinoa, a nutritious grain from South America, has a texture rather like split lentils when cooked. It makes a great alternative to rice. Here it is combined with chargrilled eggplants, capsicums, cherry tomatoes and onions, then baked with tangy goat's cheese on the top. Serve with a mixed leaf salad.
This is a one-pot meal of pumpkin, potatoes, carrots, parsnips, zucchini and pinto beans. Cider in the stock adds a bright touch.
In this tasty pie dish, ramekins filled with tuna/salmon with herbs and veggies then topped with mashed sweet potato and cheese substitute and baked.
Celeriac, sometimes called knob celery, has a lot of flavour and provides a nice creamy texture. Spinach adds brightness and freshness.
