    Katinka Day is a vegetarian (and part-time/aspiring/attempting vegan).The writer of Aussie blog, The Thoughtful Eater, she’s all about showing how simple it is to become more involved with your food by making delicious veggie and vegan food:

    “I love food but am concerned with where it has come from. I think more and more people are becoming increasingly curious about how and where their food is produced and want to know about the animal/s that have provided it.

    Compared to 100 years ago, our food now goes through many distribution channels before it reaches our plate. We are no longer buying directly from the farmer, but at supermarkets where products claim to be ‘free range’, ‘organic’, ‘hormone free’. It’s difficult to know what to believe anymore. My blog aims to clear this muddiness surrounding ‘ethical’ food and eating. It will help you find food from ‘sustainable’ sources, show who you how easy and diverse vegetarian and vegan cooking can be and will also deal with some generally tasty food.”

    Bulgar, spinach and apricot pilaf

    Adding a twist to the Middle-Eastern Pilaf by replacing rice with the more chewy bulgar wheat grains, this is a meal that is filled with sharp flavours and interesting textures. Great as a meal on its own but also works really well as an accompaniment to curries and stews.
