Kale curry with crispy shallots + egg

Kale curry
Tadaa! It's only taken me 6 years to get around to, but I've finally had a blog makeover! It's been one of those things I've been wanting to do for about the past 4 years, but between creating two cookbooks, motherhood + moving countries, lets just say I've had a few other things to do. We've still got a few little tweaks to fix here and there (and some pages are still looking a little wonky after the move to WordPress), but for the most part it's all done! Have you checked out the new recipe index? I love it to bits and I think you will too.
With all the new changes around here I've also been thinking now would be a great time to roll out a couple of new 'inspire me' posts, this time focussing on local NZ creatives. I can't wait to share more real soon.
Workshops have also been on my mind now that The Food Show is done and dusted for 2016. If you'd like to be the first to know about the details, or if you'd like to be notified every time I make a new post, click the 'subscribe' tab above and enter your email to join my mailing list. There may even be a few Melbourne/Sydney classes/events on the horizon if it all works out.

This kale curry is exactly what I feel like eating at the moment, now that the little glimpse of spring we had last week is but a distant memory and the rain has well and truly set back in. The base is a fragrant Indonesian-style curry, loaded with kale and topped with crispy shallots. The curry itself is vegan, if that's your preference. But I love to serve it with a couple of boiled eggs alongside for a good boost of protein. You can grab the recipe here.

Lastly, a massive thank you to the wonderful Noor for the site design, and endless hours of help with the site move!Kale curry

    The site looks beautiful, Emma! Congratulations – I know how hard it is to give a food blog a makeover, with all the recipe indexing and tagging. This curry sounds so good, bookmarking it for when it gets a bit cooler outside in a month or two 🙂

    Beauty!! Emma this new site design is absolutely gorgeous, and so easy to navigate, I especially love the new header. This curry looks delicious, I’m always so hesitant to make my own curry paste (it seems like such an undertaking), but reading your recipe, it actually sounds quite simple, can’t wait to try it!

    My husband is not a fan of veggies but I think he will like this. There’s only one way to find out!

    Hi Emma, we met in Sri Lanka couple of months back at the Cinnamon Travel Bloggers’ Conference and I was relieved to find the sole food blogger there! A shout out from Sri Lanka! Hope to see you around soon 🙂

    PS- The new blog looks fantastic!
