Smokey Paprika Wedges and Garlic Beans

This is a lovely and simple lunch recipe that is incredible for this time of year, it’s perfectly summery and feels light. The skin-on potato wedges and paprika coating makes them lovely and crispy and perfect for dipping in home-made beans or hummus. For the beans, either follow my recipe here, or simply combine your chosen bean (I like either a tin of mixed beans … Continue reading Smokey Paprika Wedges and Garlic Beans

Gluten Free Date and Walnut Bread

Since my favourite way to have toast is with nut butter and banana, I love to have pre-sliced and frozen breads in my freezer for a quick and delicious homemade start to my day. I adore really brown and seedy breads, especially with avocado, but with sweet toppings a bread that lends itself to sweetness works so amazingly better. Adding dates into bread gives a really … Continue reading Gluten Free Date and Walnut Bread

Chocolate Brownies

These brownies. They’re the best. Truly. Not only are they delicious, they’re so simple to make. They’re a ‘throw it all in a bowl, whizz, bake, eat’ kind of bake. I took inspiration from Deliciously Ella’s black bean brownies from her latest cookbook ‘Every Day’, however they are considerably evolved. I found Ella’s recipe too wet and way too sweet, while hazelnuts are the nut to use … Continue reading Chocolate Brownies

Rosemary Polenta Chips

Polenta probably doesn’t get as much attention as it’s worth. Sure, you can get that unappetising bowl of slop that is probably the first thing you think of when thinking about polenta, but when it’s set it has a really lovely texture that can go with anything and it’s subtle taste allows it to absorb any flavour you add to it. It can be really … Continue reading Rosemary Polenta Chips

Courgette Carpaccio with a Walnut Dressing

I can’t believe how quick (like 2 minutes) and tasty this little side is, it doesn’t even need many ingredients! It’s a fantastic salad-type accompaniment to any meal, and it’s also really great on it’s own for a starter or lunch. It’s multi-purpose, mega-tasty and really light and healthy. It’s the kind of fresh snack that even the carnivores in your family will adore. Makes one … Continue reading Courgette Carpaccio with a Walnut Dressing

Chocolate and Coconut Energy Balls

Energy Balls are so handy to have in the fridge because they’re a really great grab-and-go snack and a healthy and delicious accompaniment to tea or coffee. The nuts in these are packed with protein which is great for energy without the after slump of processed sugar, and the dates are full of fibre to keep you fuller for longer. Another great thing about energy … Continue reading Chocolate and Coconut Energy Balls

Indian Spiced Hummus

I’ve been a huge fan of hummus for a long time, but I’ve only recently realised how much nicer home-made hummus is, and how quick and easy it is to make it. I played around with the flavours of conventional hummus and came up with this incredible aromatic version. If you want regular hummus, leave out the turmeric, lime, and coriander, and add a clove … Continue reading Indian Spiced Hummus
