Rustic Potato Crust Quiche with Goat Cheese

I hope you are all staying safe and healthy! I know this is a strange time for everyone, most of our daily routines are on pause right now but life goes on in a new way. I know I have not cooked more than I have the past few weeks in years. I really do love the kitchen and I’m super grateful that my hubby likes to cook as well so we take turns. One of my favourite gluten free breakfasts the last few years is this super easy quiche. You can make it and reheat it, eating leftovers for days.It is also good with salad for lunch. I hope you are all staying sane working from home or helping your kids do their online school work…. crazy how life has changed. I am in the midst of moving in 2 weeks so that is keeping me somewhat occupied. What are you all doing to stay sane and busy in this quarantine time at home?!!

Quick and Easy Potato & Chickpea Curry

IMG_0521

It’s Sunday Funday today friends! It’s the only day of the week my boyfriend has off work so I get really excited… 🙂 We might do the grouse grind hike today or head to Commercial Drive for the Italian Day Festival?! I posted a photo of this curry I made the other night on Instagram and was asked for the recipe. So I am sharing it with you now. It is one of the easiest things to make, I swear. It is flavourful and healthy, winning!  My two secret ingredients are this curry powder (from Spice Works) mix and micro greens. I have tried to mix curry spices on my own but they just never taste as good so I cheat and use this package, and I don’t feel guilty at all. 😉 I found this spice mix at Hopott Farms but I’m sure they sell it at other retailers. Micro greens are the shoots of salad vegetables such as arugula, Swiss chard, mustard and beetroot. You can buy micro greens at most health food stores. They are picked just after the first leaves have developed and add a healthy kick an flavour to any meal.

I hope you like this curry as much as we do!

Shrimp & Coconut Laksa Soup

Laksa Soup with shrimp

Mmmmmm I haven’t had laksa soup in over 10 years! I first tried it when I was living in Sydney, Australia. I worked at this cute pub called the Tea Gardens Hotel and they had a small restaurant in the pub that served authentic Malaysian cuisine. How could you not love this soup, its creamy and coconuty and full of flavour. Laksa typically has some heat and spice to it, my recipe is quite mild. Feel free to add as much heat (with peppers or hot sauce) as you like. I actually had the pleasure of spending a week in Malaysia on my way to Australia and it was such a beautiful country. 🙂 I am mostly avoiding grains these days, but I have been getting a bit bored with fish and veggies every night so I thought I would treat myself with this rice noodle recipe. 😉
