Cosmopolitan Editor-in-Chief Brooke Sever reveals her must-have foods

If there’s anything better than smashed avo on toast with a good sprinkle of salt and pepper for breakfast, I’m yet to find it. Sometimes I add a smear of Vegemite, or a poached egg, too
I have a jar of chilli flakes in my desk drawer, and one on my kitchen counter at home. Both are used on an almost daily basis on salads, soups, avocado on toast… There’s not much that can’t be improved by chilli, as far as I’m concerned. I tasted chilli gummy bears for the first time the other day and I’m hooked
Australia is known for its Asian food scene, so it’s not surprising that I’ve grown up with a love of steamed dumplings or dim sum. I get my fix here in Dubai at Royal China or Ping Pong
A pretty typical weeknight meal for me is chicken and veggies – with a whole bulb of garlic. I roast it with a drizzle of olive oil for about 25 minutes then use each little morsel of deliciousness in lieu of a sauce with the rest of the meal. My colleagues are yet to complain…
I might just have to live in Dubai for the rest of my life because hummus back home just doesn’t compare. I could eat it by the spoonful!
The spicier, the better!
When I haven’t been home to Australia in a while I find myself starting to crave a meat pie. Far from the most glam and healthy food option, but seriously delicious as a once-in-a-while treat
I haven’t got much of a sweet tooth so I’d choose to snack on popcorn over chocolate any day. I pop it myself on the stovetop with a bit of olive oil, then serve it with lots of salt
Ideally the mixed kind. I love the slightly nutty texture and so much healthier than rice or pasta
