Butternut pumpkin pasta has long been a staple during the winter months and despite the visuals that spring to mind (Mmmm butter!) this is not a sauce-heavy pasta. In fact, the thing we love most about this dish is that it’s so damn tasty you don’t even miss all that sauce! The whole wheat flavour of the pasta balances perfectly with the roasted pumpkin and salty overtones of cheese, making this meal absolutely delicious! So here it is, check out Naturally Ella’s recipe for an easy prep weeknight pasta featuring savoury roasted pumpkin with butter, parmesan, walnuts, and rosemary.
After a long day at work, crafting a healthy meal may not sound exciting, but realistically, this is when we need quality nutrition the most. Energy levels and stress hormones should be taken care of through a proper, nourishing dinner and the good news is, it doesn’t need to be tricky. So, thanks to Sami Bloom, we have some great tips and tricks to save you time in the kitchen, making sure that by 7pm you aren’t reaching for fast food delivery apps or just settling for toast.
When we first came across this recipe, we definitely did a double take – peaches and burrata, what!? It sounded so unique that we just had to try it and we aren’t sorry! Considering the weather has been so amazing lately and since it’s tomato season, you’ll quickly realise why this is exactly the kind of simple and tasty dinner that hits the spot over these fading days of summer…
Out of all the meal options available to us, here at Cali we think there are few that make mouths water more than a delicious, juicy burger. Whether it’s a sweet little slider or a beast with the lot, you’ll be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t love a good burger. At Cali, we also love our veggies – like a lot! So when we were asked if we thought we could find a veggie burger that didn’t make us feel like we were missing out on the meat, we jumped at the challenge! And, lo and behold, we found it!… “The Beet Burger”, discovered over at one of our favourite foodie blogs “Green Kitchen Stories”. So here’s the recipe for Cali’s recommendation for the ultimate kind of guilt free veggie burger.
So, what makes this My New Roots mac ‘n’ tease recipe so good? It’s vegan! Not one speck of cheese or milk or butter or cream in sight. Nope. Instead the delectable sauce is a winning combination of roasted butternut squash, garlic, creamy butter beans, and cheesy nutritional yeast. Although not exactly like the cheese sauce of yore, it is still completely smooth, creamy, rich, and deeply satisfying when combined with fat noodles and the most amazing non-breadcrumb-topping made out of sunflower seeds. That’s right.
Now this is certainly a warm and spicy soup for the soul which is perfect for winter. We’re big fans of the blog Love and Lemons authored by Austin based husband and wife Jeanie and Jack who often complete their delectable recipes with a squeeze of lemon (hence the name). Their recipes are mostly vegetarian (although they aren’t entirely themselves) and their cookbook ‘The Love and Lemons’ was released at the end of March.

Today we strolled down to Coogee for our regular afternoon pick me up (today was The Pacino) and instead of scrolling through emails while we sipped away, we decided to get to know some of our customers a little better. Here’s what we had to ask them and here’s what they had to say!
For a long time now, the team at Cali Press have seriously admired the work of the incredible little family that makes up Green Kitchen Stories. When David and Luise aren’t busy working, or taking care of their beautiful daughter, they are in the kitchen, cooking up a storm and coming up with super tasty, healthy and simple vegetarian recipes only using natural ingredients. It didn’t come as a surprise when they were announced the winners of Saveur’s ‘Best Food Blog Awards’ a few years ago.
