I rarely use star anise in my cooking.  Ever since my friend taught me how to make this soy and star anise braised chicken, I don’t think I can ever live without this dish. A tad too dramatic? Perhaps. :P

I have made this dish many times and strangely, never thought of sharing this dish until now.  It is so easy to make and if rice is your staple and obsession, this dish goes awesomely well with rice. Imagine the spiced, savoury and slightly garlicky sauce being mopped up by every grain of fluffy rice. Oh boy, there’s no words!

 

[Gluten Free Recipe] Sweet Potato, Chickpea & Cavolo Nero Coconut Curry

Sweet Potato, Chickpea & Cavolo Nero Curry | www.fussfreecooking.com

After an indulgent trip to Melbourne last week, tasting from lemon, lime and bitters dessert featured on Masterchef to tapas at the Gazi restaurant,  I had a sudden craving of vegetables packed meal at home. Do you feel the same way after returning from a trip?

Inspired by Crepes of Wrath’s green chickpea and chicken coconut curry with swiss chard, I’ve made a meat free version with sweet potato, chickpea and cavolo nero (a lot of it!!).  A girl has to make the full of kale season right?
