collection I : cornucopia

i have decided to begin a series of “collection” posts, themed around certain interests of mine, namely: food, illustration, design, packaging, the great outdoors, literature etc.  i have such caches of internet-scrounged images that inspire and motivate me on a daily basis, so i thought why not share them.  who knows: someone might be out there needing a little dose of visual stimulation?

i am starting off with most everyone’s favourite: food.  i recently became (and trust me i do cringe at how pretentious it sounds) a pescetarian – meaning i eat only fish and seafood as my source of “meat”, other than that it is vegetarian all the way.  so here is a collection of vegetarian/pescetarian recipes i have been hoarding…

vegetable fritter salad

sweet potato veggie burger

wintery vietnamese spring rolls

white bean burgers with sundried tomatoes and rosemary

lentil meatballs with lemon pesto

zucchini & ricotta pancakes

browned butter mushroom panini

salmon with quinoa and toasted seeds

egg, avocado & arugula breakfast sandwich

tuna sandwich with coconut & cilnatro

peri-peri pumpkin with haloumi on a sweet couscous salad
