Squash & Harissa Dip

A yummy dip to make the most of all the different squashes and pumpkins that are available at this time of year. The recipe states butternut squash, but you could use any available squash in its place. You could also make this using ground cumin, coriander & chilli for a change. If you’re dairy free […]

Spicy Coconut Sweet Potato Wedges

I had these at a couple of events over the weekend and they are delicious. They work well on their own, with a variety of salads & dips, definitely with avocado and would work equally well as a side with chicken or fish. This recipe uses curry powder, but you could easily substitute this for […]

Turmeric Porridge

I have been making & eating this porridge for a long time and been thought very weird even by Nutritional colleagues, until recently that is! We now know how amazingly good Turmeric is for us and this is just one easy way to include Turmeric in your diet. You have to enjoy the flavour of Turmeric to […]

Mango Salsa

The perfect accompaniment for the Coconut Chicken. This Mango Salsa will really add to the freshness of the dish and give it a bit of a chilli kick, I would also add a small clove of garlic. This recipe can be tweaked to your taste very easily. This would also go well with fish or […]

Black Bean Brownies

This is one of my favourite sweet treat recipes. It’s moist, light (crumbly) & totally delicious. The best bit is that if you don’t tell anyone that there is no flour or butter in the brownies they don’t know and they will certainly never guess it’s made with beans!! So not only is it dairy […]

Veggie Burger & Tahini Slaw

I wanted a  veggie burger that didn’t use breadcrumbs, included sweet potato and is simple to make.  So here it is Bean & Sweet Potato burger.  These are quite soft so don’t work well in a bun (however you could firm up the mixture with some buckwheat flour (if you are gluten free) or plain flour […]

Chocolate Paradise Bars

These are the original version of the Lemon Paradise Bars that I posted recently.  They are a tweak of the original version from Hemsley & Hemsley so they are much quicker & easier to make with less honey to reduce the sugar content.  They are still totally delicious and a wonderful treat.  They freeze well […]

Dinner in a Hurry

How often do you get in from work or taking the kids to yet another club, you need to eat, but you just don’t have the energy or desire to cook something healthy from scratch? I know it’s great if you can cook a meal from scratch using ‘real’ ingredients, but let’s face facts, it […]

Storecupboard Tomato Soup

Following on from my post about storecupboard ingredients here is a quick and simple recipe for Tomato soup.  The addition of Courgette makes the soup creamy without having to add any dairy products.  Serve with your favourite bread or a follow with a salad topped with beans for added protein and avocado for healthy fats. […]

Salmon Fishcakes

Personally I’m not that keen on Salmon on its own and neither is my husband, so as I often do I make it into something else – in this case fishcakes.  These fishcakes are easy to make and cook and can be served with a multitude of different things.  We tend to have new potatoes, […]
