There’s a new cooking trend in town and we’ve taken a massive liking to it. More and more Aussie foodies are experimenting with bush tucker recipes (us included) - and the results are amazing.

Australian Native Plants have been traditionally used for medicinal purposes, but now they’re gaining a lot of popularity in our kitchens, as spices. This is thanks to the unique flavours they boast. You won’t find any other ingredient that tastes quite like lemon myrtle or wattleseed, for example.

If we’ve made you curious, have a read through our favourite bush tucker recipes we’ve created here at Roogenic.
