Melted feta, greens and lemon give a summery burst to these crepes. Great for lazy weekend breakfasts, lunches or no-fuss dinners. Sling a salad on the side and serve with sea-salt, pepper and loads of lemon wedges.
A couple of healthy salads for summer days: sweet potato with roasted capsicum and basil, and a cumin-spiced couscous salad with parsley, mint, red onion, lemon and fresh dates. Plus lots of ideas to tweak these with what’s in your fridge.
A chunky, rustic pasta sauce of roasted baby capsicums, garlic + olives. Sweet with a hint of burnt-caramelly goodness. Simple, one-handed weeknight cooking, with minimal knife work. The roasted capsicums make a killer accompaniment to sourdough, in salads or as an antipasto.
A simple warm salad of roasted pumpkin, asparagus and cannelini beans, dotted with feta and sesame salt. Hands-off weeknight fare. So good, you’ll want to make extra for leftover lunches! The sesame salt adds spark to salads, rice dishes, stir-fries and only takes a few minutes.
My favourite Thai green curry, fragrant with kaffir lime, punchy like a king-hit. Thai basil, beansprouts and lime juice keep it clean. Stupendous weeknight fare. And how to make perfect steamed white rice without a rice cooker.
Ottolenghi-inspired roasted eggplant, seasoned with olive oil, sea-salt and pepper. Fluffy, creamy, almost cloud-like. Served with assorted roasted spring veg and herbed buttery couscous. Hands-off weeknight fare that’s light and super delish.
A warm spring salad of white zucchini, chickpeas and fennel, browned in the pan and dressed with lemon, feta and mint. Serve with grilled meat and a glass of something chilled on a warm night. Or mix it up with brown rice and spinach for a workday lunch.
Grilled chicken with a spicy marinade of Portuguese flavours – loads of sweet paprika, garlic, lemon and lime, olive oil and cayenne pepper. Serve with rice or on flatbread with a simple tomato-yoghurt salad.
A Sri Lankan dry tofu curry with greens, kaffir lime and soba noodles, spliced with lime juice and served with a salty~sweet peanut-and-coconut brittle. A genius mix of flavour in a light, wholesome curry.

One Small Kitchen is a collection of simple, real food recipes. It's the stuff I cook from my small city kitchen. I try to live consciously and cook the same way. Using whole foods. Mostly plants. Learning from traditional wisdom. And trusting my intuition. Enjoy! x
