    Springtime means enjoyably warmer, longer days and cool evenings. It’s also the perfect time to transition tastebuds to lighter, fresh meal ideas without abandoning favourite comfort foods altogether.

    New kitchen gadgets offer a host of practical features without taking up significant real estate on our benchtops. The team at Kambrook has shortlisted five favourite dishes to ease our way back into the warmer months.


    1. To develop a rich broth, the soup base of traditional Vietnamese beef noodle soup (phở) is often simmered overnight. Kambrook’s pressure cookers have the ability to shave off significant cooking time without compromising on flavour. For wintry evenings, try our beef and lime phở. It’s a satisfying soup that helps keep the heart and soul comfortably warm with a variety of aromatics and spices.
    2. For a quick and nutritious midweek meal, try our prawn, chorizo and kale risotto made with our latest rice cookers. Ingredients can be easily substituted with whatever is handy in the fridge and pantry.
    3. Try honey and lemon chicken - but not as you know it! This is a lean, Mediterranean twist sure to get tastebuds out of hibernation. Pair this with roasted potatoes and seasonal vegetables to increase the nutrient intake or enjoy as smaller portions for an entrée.
    4. Why order take-out when you can recreate tender yet crunchy Korean fried chicken at home? Delicious as a snack, this can be transformed into a meal with a serving of steamed rice and pickled spring vegetables.
    5. Packed with flavour and nutritional value, the chicken, sweet potato, tomato and quinoa salad is a deliciously warm salad best enjoyed fresh. And it doesn’t hurt to make enough for leftovers the following day!
