Bored by yet another rushed sandwich? Bill Granger, the man behind the legendary Granger & Co restaurants, has turned lunch into the most delicious dish of the day with these recipes.
Grilled cheese and kimchi open sandwich recipe
A perfect mix of Eastern and Western flavours: bubbling cheese on toast with kimchi is a delicious update of my favourite cheddar and pickle sandwich.
Winter chopped salad with peanut and lime dressing recipe
Don’t forget to be adventurous with your salad ingredients and use whatever’s in season. Keep the textures crisp and the dressing warming.
Pasta salad with peas, broad beans and ricotta recipe
This all-in-one carbs and veggies dish has a simple flavour profile that makes it perfect for lunch, or to serve with fish or chicken for dinner.
Chickpea, kale and paneer curry recipe
I always get excited at the idea of Indian takeaway, but afterwards I often feel very full, very sleepy and wake up on the sofa three hours later. So this is my Australian update: a fresh, light curry you can make at home very easily with tinned chickpeas.
Prawn, xo and chorizo fried rice recipe
Fried rice is the ultimate comfort food and this recipe is endlessly versatile. Often I stir in a couple of tablespoons of kimchi when I’ve fried the prawns.
Fragrant chicken broth with brown rice, mushrooms, lime and coriander recipe
I first tasted this variation of the rice bowl, piled high with herbs and sitting in broth, 15 years ago in LA. It was the era of ‘my body is a temple’ and this was temple food at its best – simple, pure and monastic. This is my version.
Warm lentil salad with burrata and basil oil recipe
Braising lentils and serving warm with a spoonful of creamy melting burrata is pure comfort food.
Seeded hazelnut rye loaf recipe
I love this bread so much I could eat half the loaf in one sitting. Rye bread spread with ricotta is my favourite, with Scandi-style smoked salmon and dill on top.
