Welcome to Two Spoons, a celebration of the crazy amazing things natural ingredients can do. I want to show the world that eating REAL food doesn't have to cost a lot of money, time and effort. Most of my recipes highlight the amazing potential of fruits & vegetables, if you just give them a little love. Since we're all human, there's the odd sweet treat thrown in too.
Currently I am based in Sydney, Australia (formerly Christchurch, New Zealand, and missing it plenty!). Want to catch up? Email me at twospoons.blog[at]gmail.com
Want to make hazelnut milk on the cheap? Next time you make almond milk, chuck in a few toasted hazelnuts for soaking too and you'll be making nutella hot chocolates in no time.
Food I’m loving right now
Celery! Who knew it could add such a lovely crunch, a refreshing tang, a moreish flavour to so many dishes? We picked up a hearty celery half from the market and I've been throwing it so many things that have surprisingly turned out great because of its presence. With tofu and soy sauce, or with mushrooms, or in soup, or in stir fries and salads...what a wonderful vege. The leaves are great used like a herb too, with the tender leaves being a great salad filler that adds a distinctive but mild flavour. Slice the outer stalks super thin and keep the middle stalks for eating raw.
