Cod Kedgeree

Cod kedgeree is a great meal. It is a combination of flaked fish, rice and eggs, married together with herbs and spices, and great anytime of the day. There are many variations of this dish. From the traditional use of smoked haddock to the addition of dried fruit. Today’s recipe is a more subtle version, using unsmoked fish with just a hint of spicy heat, and a touch of herbs.

Toasted Coconut Rice

Today’s recipe is a toasted coconut rice recipe. It’s an awesome side dish which works so nicely with spicy meat dishes and fish. I served this rice recently with a Thai-inspired stewed chicken, it was so good. My friend was visiting, a male “friend”, and he shared the meal with me. I thought he might balk at the idea of toasted coconut rice, but he loved it, so I took a bow, and now feel comfortable that you will love it too.

Okra Fried Rice

I don’t think I’ve ever had a family holiday dinner without a spoonful or two of rice. Luckily, it’s not always the same rice dish, my mother would always mix it up and give us something interesting. So today’s dish is an homage to my mother’s family meals – okra fried rice. It’s so tasty, with fresh vegetables, pancetta, shallots, garlic and a teeny kick from some cayenne pepper.

Purple Cauliflower Rice

Purple cauliflower rice is a really cool side dish. It’s a smart alternative to regular rice. One cup of white rice has 5.6 times more carbs than the same amount of cauliflower rice. Cauliflower rice is packed with vitamin C too, and purple cauliflower rice is really pretty!

Replacing regular rice with cauliflower rice is a great idea, especially for those with chronic diseases such as diabetes.

It has a great bite, much lighter than conventional rice and doesn’t leave you conked out on the sofa veering to the food coma zone.

Three cheers for purple cauliflower rice!
