Another quick bite here. I am thinking of having a section just on toast as it’s so simple to make wherever you are, supposedly takes us back to childhood and can easily be jazzed up.

I keep fresh Dill in the freezer as it’s pretty expensive to buy here in Tokyo from regular supermarkets for such a little amount. Buying it from the Thai supermarkets here in bulk for about 200 yen, washing, drying and popping in a plastic tub from the hundred yen store as I do with some other herbs, it’s then on hand for throwing into dishes as I please.

Here, scrambled eggs with the smoked salmon on the toast, a quick squeeze of fresh lemon over, drizzle of avocado oil, and black charcoal salt, pepper and the dill thrown over make a lovely light lunch. Packed with protein will keep you from going hungry till dinner so no need to snack too!

There are many different variations of these lovely potato cutlets. Such a simple little snack and don’t require much to make. If you make them spicy by putting an extra green chilli or two they are great with just plain yoghurt and fresh coriander. Of course there are so many tasty chutneys, green coriander chutney, tamarind chutney, coconut chutney to name a few that go very well with them and I will be posting some recipes in the near future so do watch out.

These are such a classic in themselves I felt they deserved their own post.

I did pick some fresh mint from my herb garden, mix with homemade yoghurt that was ready, add a little salt and pepper and was super tasty so do feel free to try this if you have some mint and plain yoghurt handy.

A simple lunch today as I started setting up my blog! Lots of recipes to come but thought I’d kick off with one of my favourite lunch/snacks. Healthy, tasty and ready in minutes.

Waiting for the wholemeal bread to pop out of the toaster, I chopped a small tomato and put it in a  small bowi. Scooped out an avocado, threw in some coriander, squeezed in some lime juice, finely chopped and added a little garlic clove and red chilli, a quick crush of salt and pepper in, mashed it up well and was ready to spread on the toast!

YUM!
