Tomato onion and feta tart

Caramelised onion, tomato & feta tart

Today you are witnessing a first here at Claire K Creations. Do you know what it is? I’ll just tell you and save you guessing… this tomato onion and feta tart, is the first ever tart/pastry shell that you’ve seen out of the tin here. It’s the first one that I’ve been brave enough to […]

Zucchini and olive hommus – paleo, vegan, gluten-free

Zucchini & olive hommus

I was deliberating over which dip to buy when an older lady asked for assistance. ‘Would you mind helping me?’ she asked. ‘Of course not, how can I help?’ She’d forgotten her glasses and wanted to make sure she was buying the avocado dip with the highest percentage of avocado so asked me to read […]

Paleo and vegan carrot dip

Stay with me I haven’t totally changed my eating habits over night. I’m not one to latch on to the latest craze diet, in fact I’m quite against them in general. My idea of a diet is eating as well as you can most of the time with a few (ok sometimes more than a […]

Crunchy Asian vegetable salad

Crunchy Asian vegetable salad

In 2013 I’m going to continue to expand my eating repertoire. This year I’m going to find at least 10 salads that I like and make them every now and then. I’ve established that traditional salads with lots of lettuce are not my cup of tea. For me, a salad has to have a bit of oomph and […]

Christmas stuffed mushrooms

Christmas stuffed mushrooms

I know what you’re thinking – my goodness Claire that’s not a very pretty looking recipe. I beg you to stay with me though because while this may not be the prettiest recipe I’ve ever posted, it sure is tasty and it makes up for it’s lack of visual appeal with it’s really-good-for-you status. This […]

Melanzane ripiene (stuffed eggplant)

Have you seen or read ‘Eat Pray Love?’ It was a pretty hard thing to avoid for a while there. I loved the book and the movie but of course my favourite section was Italy. The way she described that food, I wanted to jump on the next plane headed for Rome and join her. […]

Chris’s Italian slow-roasted tomatoes

I seem to have a knack for finding bad weather at the coast. My man headed down to Sydney for the football finals last weekend so I decided to take a break up at the beach with mum and dad for the long weekend. I arrived at lunch time on Saturday to brilliant sunshine and […]

Asian style stuffed capsicums

Asian style stuffed capsicum

I mentioned that last week I had bursts of not being able to get off the couch interspersed with moments of great kitchen creativity. The creative moments were often filled with vegetables in an effort to fight off the dreaded winter lurgy. My Asian style-stuffed capsicums were super simple to throw together and absolutely delicious. […]

Edamame just like the Japanese restaurants

Edamame

I think one of the reasons we put on weight over winter, sorry I’m generalising to make myself feel better. I mean one of the reasons I put on weight over winter is because all the delicious summer snacks like berries and yoghurt and all those healthy, low-calorie foods don’t seem nearly as appealing when […]

Spice up your life – spiced nuts

Spiced nuts

I was (an secretly still am) a serious Spice Girls fan. Seriously, what’s not to love? When they announced their comeback tour a few years ago I was almost dancing around the house to ‘Spice up your life’ in joy. Sadly, they couldn’t stay together long enough to make it to Australia. Not to worry […]

60 calorie spaghetti – yes it’s true!

60 calorie spaghetti

This Friday, I have my first fitting for my wedding dress. It’s starting to all feel very real and so exciting! The dressmaker had two openings for my appointment; 2pm & 3pm. My preference – 3pm so that gives us time to go out to lunch before. He was a little shocked. I don’t think […]

Baked broccoli – even non-broccoli eaters will love it

Baked broccoli

I love broccoli. It’s one vegetable that I have eaten since I was little and don’t think I’ll ever stop. I even tried my hand at growing it a few months ago and managed to harvest a few little heads. I’ve also discovered that if you shave off the outer skin of the stalk, the […]
