IMG_3895 red lentils & butternut curry

This simple recipe is an adaptation from an already quick and easy one, but  the way I cooked it, it is even more super fast and super easy, yet delicious – real comfort food for a cold winter’s day. I was late starting to cook, and I was tired, but it took me no more than 30 minutes to rustle this curry up. It really lifted my spirits when I tucked in. Ingredients: 1 butternut, cut into bite-sized cubes (save the seeds & roast over low heat or in the oven with a little […] Continue reading →

IMG_3890 Aubergines & Pomegranates

I found this delicious Persian inspired recipe in an old magazine and adapted it somewhat. It is easy and quick to rustle up and a great change when brinjals are in season and one has run out of ideas of what to do with them. When I first made the recipe, I did not have enough brinjals, so I just baked some butternut wheels and dressed them with the same sauce and toppings. The result was just as tasty. So play around and use different vegetables. Any left over sauce can be used as salad […] Continue reading →

Sweet Potato - Spinach bake

The kale and spinach in my vegetable box outside my kitchen door is growing at an amazing rate, so I have to come up with new ways to eat them in order to not get bored. Here is a yummy and easy recipe I pulled out of my own hat last week, which I will definitely be making regularly in future, as it turned out to be delicious.   SWEET POTATO & SPINACH/KALE BAKE Ingredients for 4 people 2 large or 4 small sweet potatoes, scrubbed (no need to peel) 1 large bunch of spinach, kale or […] Continue reading →

seed-crackers

These crackers are dead easy to prepare without any equipment and are a great stand-by for those snack attacks. They are delicious on their own, but also go with dips, humus, vegan cheeses,  as an accompaniment to soups or salads, cheeses and even with sweet toppings. They are nutrient dense, providing ample essential fatty acids and are very satisfying – so much better and healthier than plain old potato crisps. Ingredients 200 g sunflower seeds 60 g flax seeds (coarsely crushed in […] Continue reading →

I was told about this drink by a client who raved about it. When I tried it for the first time, I also started raving about it. This drink is very tasty, most refreshing on hot summer days (move over beer!) and detoxing at the same time, and it has virtually no calories and is sugar free – so much better than sodas, juices and cool-drinks laden with sugar and other harmful additives and colorants. And best of all:  it is made in a jiffy at a fraction of the cost of commercially […] Continue reading →

I discovered this recipe  in a health magazine. It took me all of 10 minutes to make, and after 2 hours in the freezer, the chocolates were ready to eat, although it was just as delicious to lick the bowl! Double (or triple) the quantity to have extra. You need to serve and eat them straight from the freezer, as they go soft quickly when left outside. This recipes makes about 12 – 14 individual chocolates. Ingredients  2 Tablespoons of raw cacao powder 2 Tablespoons Tahini (or any […] Continue reading →

WALNUT-RAW CHOCH TREATS

This is a quick, delicious alternative to just raw chocolates – great if you are pushed for time and need something in a hurry. You can use a food processor, but a power blender will do the job very well. Walnuts are a true super food (brain food, cancer fighting properties, contain rare anti-oxidants, healthy fats, B vitamins, improve reproductive health in men, improve metabolic parameters in people with type 2 diabetes, good for weight control …. to name just a few of the […] Continue reading →
