Tender bean and corn salad

This super simple recipe has been too long in the making! Am sure it was almost a year ago that Ayesha told me about a friend having made this. Been meaning to try it out ever since. It is a simple, clean, and quick one. You need: Slender, tender green beans, washed, and chopped at […]

Snack in a box: Pretty up a salad

Today’s lunch for Sid is spinach and corn pulao – yes, again – he does love it! I usually add some raw veggie along with this, instead of the chips that we are so apt to throw in at times. With the Lunchbots trio, I thought I’d try and make the carrots and cucumbers a […]

Yellow tomatoes, roast peppers and mint salad

Snack in a box, pasta salad

pasta salad

Greek salad (my version)

You still need the basic feta cheese and olives which are very Greek, yes. The classic salad has red vine tomatoes, cucumber and kalamata olives. It’s served on […]
