Your go-to brekkie is…

Chai-spiced oats and a green juice.

Your go-to lunch is…

Usually leftovers from the night before! My son Rafa and I have lunch together so it’s often a high protein meal. Dhal and rice is his favourite, with spinach (not a favourite but he’ll eat it).

Vanisha & RafaYour go-to dinner is…

A vegetarian galette packed with cheese, honey, fresh herbs and whatever vegetables we have. This is also a favourite meal to make when we have guests.

Dessert or no dessert…

I have a soft spot for brownies, but I prefer savoury over sweet.

What you reach for when a snack attack hits…

Homemade spinach balls, or bhajia as they’re called in Fiji Hindi. I bake these instead of frying. They are filled with spices and herbs. My family loves them. There are always some in the freezer for emergencies or when we have unexpected guests.

Your fave foodie destination…

Oh, it’s a tie between Fiji and Timor Leste (East Timor). Please don’t make me choose!

Cultural FoodThree foods you can’t live without…

Chickpeas, spinach, jalapenos.

Your ultimate foodie indulgence…

Fijian cream buns from The Hot Bread Kitchen! Put them on your list if you’re headed to Fiji.

The recipe that’ll always get you drooling is…

This Chicken With Mustard recipe by David Lebovitz. We don’t cook much meat in our home but this dish is one of the exceptions to our mostly vegetarian diet.
