Life lately has just felt soooooo busy!
(And yes – unemployed 30 year olds who are living with their mothers are totally allowed to feel busy too!)
The thing is - despite of my technical lack of employment – I do suddenly have a lot of non-jobs going on. First up, I’m the budget manager for our final culinary showcase (a self appointed position I should add .. and another prime example of me generously over-committing, and then taking out my stress on all my dearest and dearest. Seriously.. what am I like?!).
I’m also preparing my final presentation – and I’m working my sort-of-soup-kitchen gig. (Which is, BTW, far and away my favourite job EVER, and also – as luck would have it – the one job I will NEVER get paid for).
Most excitingly though, I’m completing my culinary externship hours .. and doing so with my culinary mentor (and now good friend) Simone. I’ve been helping Simone out with a Paleo pop up she’s running in the city … and she’s basically become my favourite cook in the world. I blame Simone entirely for my current obsession with putting homemade chive-y aioli on EVERYTHING (including – as a new bikini season choice – slabs of triple cream cheese). I also- thanks to Simone – covet stone fruit salsa, almond flour cookies and homemade balsamic reduction.
And easy green coconut sauce.
I first had easy green coconut sauce on salmon and cauliflower rice, as my staff meal two weeks ago. It totally blew my mind and I therefore did what any normal person would do; made it for myself on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of last week.
Why mess with the formula – thats my usual (and adventurous) approach.
Seriously though – this dinner is SOO easy and delicious – the sauce is just made in a blender, as is the ‘cauliflower rice’ that I ate it with. Between the super healthy coconut fats, the fresh herbs and the cruciferous vegetables, it’s one of the most balanced and healthy meals you can eat (especially if you make it with salmon, like you’re actually supposed to…). Because I didn’t really make any changes to the sauce – and you totally need to check out Simone anyhow – I’m just going to send you directly over to the recipe on her blog. The only change I made was to add a pinch of dried ginger to the sauce.. which I generally do with everything.
Oh, and to make it with prawns on Monday, chicken breast on Tuesday and Tempeh on Wednesday.. with some leftover chicken Thursday too. As you do.
What’s been your go – to easy dinner lately!?
