Raw Pad Thai Salad Recipe

For a dietitian, I don’t talk about nutrition on this blog an awful lot. But when I do it’s almost always about eating more veggies!

You’re probably sick of me going on about it but it’s for good reason. So when I’m choosing healthy lunch options to prepare for the work week, I always make sure I choose recipes that are loaded with veggies- and what better way than to start off with a vegetarian recipe like this Raw Pad Thai Salad?

Although I’m not vegetarian or vegan, I’m always quite intrigued by vegan/vegetarian foods. It can be difficult to achieve the depth of flavour that’s often found in meat based dishes, so I find that vegan/vegetarian dishes which work well involve some degree of creativity. This often involves a lot of oils in Asian vegetarian dishes, to impart flavour. But since I’m going for something healthier and lighter as a daily lunch option, veggie options from cafés serve as a better source of inspiration. And with so many vegan cafes which seem to be popping up, there’s no shortage of inspiration!

Hong Kong Style Coconut Tarts

Hong Kong Style Coconut Tarts
It wasn’t until I was writing this post that I noticed that this isn’t the first time I’ve posted a recipe for Hong Kong Style Coconut Tarts on my blog.

Oops?

It’s been that long I’ve forgotten I’ve made them before!

Actually, maybe don’t click on that link- there’s some cringe worthy writing during my high school days (yes it’s been that long!). And if you’re after a good coconut tart recipe, you’ll find it on this page anyway!

Auvers Cafe, Rhodes

Auvers Cafe Rhodes

We think we’ve got the Rhodes cafe scene pretty well figured out by now. We’ve tried just about everything we’ve wanted to, picked out favourites to rotate through and have spaced out our work lunch dates so that by the time we next revisit a cafe, the menu has most likely changed.

Amongst our favourites is Auvers Café. It’s tucked away, amongst the residential high rise apartments, but manages to draw a sizeable crowd on weekends ready to try out their colourful, beautifully presented dishes.
