Banana Bread – GF DF EF

I do love cake (I mean who doesn’t?!). But, when you’re gluten free, dairy and even egg free cake becomes something that tends to be left out. Having said that, more and more cafes are offering gluten free options and dairy free is up and coming but unless there is a vegan offering egg free […]

Mint Choc Protein Balls

I wanted to create something a bit different that used some fresh herbs from my garden, was high in protein so it doesn’t spike your blood sugar level and is totally delicious. Here is the result. They’re quick and easy to make (great to do with the children), are gluten & dairy free and vegan […]

Homemade Baked Beans

I used to love Baked Beans on toast with cheese on top, particularly as a quick, easy meal, but now I prefer to make my own healthier version. Fry some onions, mushrooms & peppers, add garlic and herbs (I like basil, organo & thyme – you can also add some chilli powder or paprika or […]

Veg Curry with Eggs

I love a good Farmer’s Market, particularly for the veg you get. It’s often cheaper, you get more for your money, it’s super fresh and you get varieties that aren’t available in the supermarket. This week I got Purple kale (anything purple fruit & veg wise is excellent), heritage carrots i.e. not just orange!, Purple […]

Basic Tomato Sauce

I use this tomato sauce for a wide variety of things such as a base for mince dishes or a sauce for meatballs or mini burgers or pasta. It’s quick and simple to make and easy to add extra veggies to. If you want really disguise veggies you can blitz once ready to incorporate everything. […]

Flatbread

Being both gluten and dairy free can make life a little more challenging on the food front at times. One of the biggest things is the lack of bread type foods. After some experimenting I have created a flatbread recipe that works well for dipping in things or to go with soup. This is very […]

Pumpkin ‘Bread’

This year I grew a pumpkin. Admittedly it wasn’t a very big pumpkin, but I was determined to use it to make something nice and this is what I came up with – Pumpkin ‘Bread’. This recipe is gluten free and can be dairy free and egg free (so vegan), I’ve given you options to […]

Protein ‘Porridge’

If you’re trying to reduce the amount of grains in your diet, this protein breakfast ‘porridge’ is just the thing. Once you’re comfortable with the basic recipe play with the ingredients and make different flavours. The nuts and seeds in this recipe provide plenty of good fats and protein to give you a good start […]

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 […]
