Spiced tahini and cardamom porridge with sautéed banana

In our little cabina in Costa Rica, from where we have just returned to the depths of winter and are now tucked up in our little woodland home, we cooked simply with organic produce from the local shop. As is always the way, abundant sunshine produces such flavoursome and nutritionally […]

Creamy quinoa porridge with cinnamon and berries

The first time I cooked quinoa porridge a few years ago, Ben gave a pretty doubtful response. For so many of us the ancient protein-packed grain has distinctly savoury connotations and throwing it into the sweet breakfast corner doesn’t always feel natural. However, mixed with a little cinnamon, honey, creamy cashew milk […]

Cacao buckwheat porridge

Autumn is arriving and I am so excited. We just spent three days in the forest in Somerset shooting parts of my book and the soft sun and golden leaves,  slowly turning as the mornings get later, were so beautiful.  It was an amazing summer, jam packed full of friends, events […]

Miso porridge with avocado and crispy kale

Over at Pura Vida Social Club, as well as the next supper club on November 12 (there are still a few early bird tickets left so quick!), we have an exciting morning-based gathering in the pipeline and it has propelled me to experiment with some more leftfield winter breakfast ideas. […]

Chia, coconut & cinnamon porridge

Porridge and I go way back. It was the first thing I ever learned to make and when I was a child I used to bound out of bed on the weekend and quietly whip some up in the kitchen just as my granny taught me: with rolled oats, a pinch […]

Beetroot and coconut soup

As winter really gathers us in its descent, embracing bright foods that are colourful, warming and earthy is something I always enjoy. It can be tempting to gravitate towards the heavy, the dense and the sweet… but if we can catch ourselves and keep things light occasionally amid the density […]

Free-from banana and fig flapjacks

It’s hard to sit down and type anything about the last few weeks now that I’m a mother. The journey has been so all-encompassing, so full to the brim of every emotion, of a love I never knew, of challenges, choices and non-stop growth… and amongst it all has been […]

Apricot + lemongrass mousse

This little dairy-free mousse is a pretty radical combination of macadamia, apricot and lemongrass. It is simple, nourishing and delicious: on toast, on fruit, straight off the spoon, it makes a refreshing change from good old nut butter, and its exotic flavours transport you immediately so some far flung land […]
