Springy lemony veg ragu

This pasta dish is so fresh and light, and is ready in less than 15 minutes. It’s the perfect midweek dinner in  a hurry. I love to use curly twirly pasta for this (the one in the picture if fusilli bucati) so that all the veggie strands wrap around the coils and stick really well….

Satisfying Mushroom Strognoff

For this dish, I was craving something creamy and rich. Classic stroganoff (usually beef), is so full of unhealthy cream, maybe with some white rice or buttery mash on the side, but this dish is genuinely super healthy, and even low calorie, which is even more surprising give how delicious it tastes. The secret ingredient…

Simply divine, healthy French toast

This is such an easy dish, but please trust me on how deliciously soft, sweet, and insanely good this healthy French toast is, and how much you need to make this at the weekend! The usual egg mixture has been replaced by a silky mixture of banana and a little dissolved creamed coconut. Coconut milk would…

Super simple, healthy carrot cake cookies

This has similarly delicious flavours to my carrot cake muesli, but comes in perfect bite-size morning snack or afternoon tea size. So easy to whip up, and no hard to find ingredients. They are really inexpensive, delicious, and perfect for tea fans because of the sublimely juicy Earl Grey infused raisins. They really make all…

Bejewelled vegan quiche with proper shortcrust pastry

I did it!! I made a convincing plant based, gluten free, crumbly and delicious shortcrust pastry and I’m so delighted with it. As it has no gluten, you can’t really roll and stretch the pastry as you normally would, and instead you just push it into the mould like when you make a cheesecake base or…

Nourishing store-cupboard sweet potato curry

This is my favourite curry ever. I love sweet potatoes and chickpeas, and the mildly spiced coconut & tomato sauce feels like a hug from an exotic grandma. It’s really quick to throw together, using mostly store cupboard ingredients. It’s something that tastes really great after a day or 2, so it’s a fantastic candidate…

Surprising carrot cake muesli

Carrots for breakfast?? It’s good, I swear. I make these real nice healthy carrot cake cookies sometimes (recipe soon), and woke up today wanting to capture that sweet-spicy goodness in a cereal bowl. The absolute game-changer is the earl grey raisins: they are so juicy and fragrant! The recipe has the fresh part (carrots, banana,…
