Raw Winter Slaw

This is a lovely accompaniment to a hot buttery jacket potato.  Is there ever a time when a jacket potato isn’t a good meal option?  OK, so I recently found out that it’s not one of your five a day (sad face), but they’re full of fibre, vitamins and are a healthy source of carbohydratesContinue reading “Raw Winter Slaw”

Spinach & Red Lentil Chilli, Guac & Coriander Cashew Cream with Baked Sweet Potato

This is a feel good supper.  It’s filling and hearty without being bloaty and guilty!  I’ve been reading a brilliant book recently called ‘Gut’ by Giulia Enders, its really accessible for unsciency types like me, and really insightful when it comes to understanding how we digest food, how long it takes and what a powerful,Continue reading “Spinach & Red Lentil Chilli, Guac & Coriander Cashew Cream with Baked Sweet Potato”

Chicken Pasanda With Cauliflower, Coconut & Almond ‘Rice’

This isn’t a fad.  Don’t mistake this one for a carb-avoiding gluten-free fashion supper… Although it happens to be those things!  For me it’s an alternative, I just didn’t fancy rice, and I do love cauliflower, and it does happen to be delicious!  Have you tried my vegetarian Mushroom Pasanda recipe by the way?  ThisContinue reading “Chicken Pasanda With Cauliflower, Coconut & Almond ‘Rice’”

It’s Clean, Lean & Green with Turmeric Cashew Cream

So this is it!  The New Year officially starts here… Tim was back to work today and the kids are back to school tomorrow… The Christmas decorations are all down and I’ve had a major blitz of toys, books, DVDs, clothes and unidentifiable objects (which at one time, were probably either dough, ‘toxic slime’, hairContinue reading “It’s Clean, Lean & Green with Turmeric Cashew Cream”

HapPie New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!  May it be filled with delicious, wonderful loveliness (your pie and your year!) We saw the year out with friends & family and welcomed the new year with a wintry walk in the beautiful surrey countryside.  If like us you’ve over indulged this holiday you’ll be delighted at a pie recipeContinue reading “HapPie New Year!”

Cranberry, Orange and Cinnamon Compote

It’s beginning to look (and smell) a lot like Christmas!  Tim’s at the supermarket now, doing the ‘big shop’ and I’ve been busy in the kitchen… There’s Sauerkraut fermenting, fresh bread baked and I’m enjoying a cup of chamomile and honey tea as I write this.  It’s blowing a gale outside but it’s warm inContinue reading “Cranberry, Orange and Cinnamon Compote”

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs…

Kids love Meatballs!  It’s another food that could contain literally anything as far as they are concerned (and depending where they come from its possible they do)… but home-made it’s possible that they’re full of good nourishment, love and a few hidden extras if you like?  This recipe is very simple, it makes 18 meatballsContinue reading “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs…”

Superfood makes Superheroes, Quick Fix Pasta & Home made Pesto

Pesto pasta is a regular 5pm meal fix in our house.  Especially when we get home at 4.30, after football, ballet or an afternoon at the park.  I usually grate a bowlful of cheese on the side and add a bowl of pitted green olives.   This week I found a bumper stock of reducedContinue reading “Superfood makes Superheroes, Quick Fix Pasta & Home made Pesto”

Thai Green Salad & Prawns

I love prawns, and I think prawns love chillies, garlic and ginger… This is a bit of a salad inspired by a Thai green curry (with prawns).  Really it’s me wanting another curry but thinking I ought to have a salad instead… You see I’d eat a curry in one form or another every dayContinue reading “Thai Green Salad & Prawns”

Goats Cheese, Honey & Onion Tart

This is a great recipe for using up onions, or just to enjoy if you like onions!  And if you like onions, you’ll know when they’re cooked slowly they’re beautifully sweet, so with the addition of honey it’s more sweet and goats cheesy in flavour and delicious with a green salad.  The honey came fromContinue reading “Goats Cheese, Honey & Onion Tart”
