Nourishing, delicious dishes from Emma Boyd
WELCOME TO MY BRAND NEW feature, which is all about common-sense, fad-free healthy eating. In my kitchen, you see, things are au naturel – as unprocessed and unrefined as possible. I’m an avid fermenter, keep chooks and a vege garden and enjoy foraging for food with my husband Nick and our two boys in tow. This said, I’m certainly no fanatic; I’d never turn down a good pie nor would I miss the opportunity to eat choc-dipped ice cream from the local dairy with my kids. The recipes I share with you are good for both the body and soul, and I hope will inspire you to incorporate more whole foods into your diet. The stuffed kumara recipe is incredibly tasty. If you are short on time, make just the dhal and serve it with a big dollop of yoghurt. The laksa can be whipped up using any seasonal ingredients you might have on hand – spring greens would be delicious. The idea of making chocolate mousse using avocado may seem a little strange, but I urge you to give it a go. The results are surprisingly mousse-like and, paired with the tanginess of tamarillo, it makes a wonderful dessert.
