This roasted broccoli, lentil & corn salad with miso dressing is a great salad or side dish for the cooler months. This recipe is gluten-free, dairy free and vegan. It does contain some protein from the lentils but I recommend you add more protein to make it a meal. My personal favourite is eggs, but you can add tofu as a vegan option. Shichimi togarashi is a Japanese condiment that usually contains chilli powder, citrus zest and sesame seeds. If you don’t have it you can sub regular chilli flakes plus sesame seeds, or just sesame seeds if you don’t like spicy food.
I had a lot of thick, gelatinous pork broth left over from the patita con maní I prepared a few weeks ago. What to do with it? Ramen of course! I must admit I sometimes feel I’m missing out on something given the number of apparently great ramen restaurants in Sydney, but I just don’t want to put my health at risk with the noodles. I found a couple of solid recipes for the pork and the eggs and made my version of the most decadent and comforting soup I’ve had in years. Please note that you’ll need to prepare the different elements of the soup in advance.
