food to glow

feel good food that's good for you

spring vegetable and hummus pastry“When it comes to food, I’m inspired by the raw vibrancy of fresh produce and food markets, and that wonderful symphony of tastes, aromas, colours and sounds all teasing the senses at once. The tenderness of baby cos lettuce leaves, the perfume of peaches and mangoes in summer, the versatility of pumpkin and sweet potato, the aromatics of freshly picked herbs, and the colour and diversity of the market people and their food.” Liz Posmyk aka Bizzy Lizzy of Bizzy Lizzy’s Good Things

With a philosophy like this, saying ‘yes’ to a guest post opportunity from Liz was one of the quickest and easiest decisions I have made for awhile. Although she is much more ‘hands on’ with the growing ending of things than I, Liz and I share a very similar passion for fresh and seasonal food.

Lucky Liz has shared her love of good food through a newspaper column in her hometown of Canberra, as well as her own radio show. She has also worked at the sharp end as a fresh market centre manager too. But I know her best through her fantastic blog, bizzy lizzy’s good things. Here she shares articles about food producers, fellow cooks and recipes emphasising not only the best of Australian produce, but also handed-down recipes from her Magyar heritage (including all the tricky-to-pronouce titles!).

Liz asked me to chat about my connection with food and how I use it in my work, and share it on my blog. And of course you can’t do a guest post on a food blog without a recipe to go with it ๐Ÿ˜€ So, I have shared an easy and healthy twist on the vegetable tart. Although I have stupidly given away the secret ingredient in the title! Please go visit Liz to see the recipe and ย look around her lovely blog. And thank you Liz, for this tremendous platform to share my work with your many readers. Follow me Down Under!

    You have really gone global with this one – and it looks sooo appetising.

    Gorgeous recipe and thanks for introducing me to Lizzy – local, fresh seasonal produce is at the heart of my cooking too.

      1. Glad you liked the recipe! It was pretty delish, but not very healthy! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. hello, i found your delicious recipe and colourful site thru bizzy lizzy! i can’t wait to explore the rest of your blog. if only it were spring here in hobart – this tart looks so fabulous with the bright tomatoes and zucchinis. i’m going to try it with winter root vegies (and save the reipce for summer!).

    1. Oh do try it with winter veggies! Living in a cool place like Edinburgh means we have a longer winter produce season so I make this with kale, sweet potato & wild mushrooms too. Thanks so much for taking the time to leave such a kind comment. Much appreciated!

    I’ve bumped up my resolve for healthy living recently. Between this blog and, my determination is higher than ever! Your recipes on here are inspiring and I particularly the several “hummus” recipes! I’ve always been such a huge fan and I can’t wait to get creative the way you have. Thank you!

    1. I’m glad you think I am inspiring. That’s quite a nice thing to say. I’m not always creative though. When inspiration and energy are flagging I will sometimes just have a piece of almond butter toast and an apple!
