IN THE KITCHEN

Roast miso and garlic aubergine with tahini sauce

As the fresh chill and bright hues of Autumn creep into our days with the inevitable turn of the year’s wheel, I find myself reaching for heartier foods, bolder flavours and certain nutrient-dense, omega-heavy ingredients that herald the coming inward call. And so, I was reminded this week of the […]

Autumn blackberry + apple crumble

Hello dear ones. Wishing you a happy Autumn and I hope the summer was full of adventure, joy and colour, wherever it swept you under its glorious warmth and sunshine. It feels good to be back in this space, sharing creations from the kitchen, rolling with the abundance of the […]

Feta and tomato everything sauce

You might have noticed, from my visible slowing down on the online side of life, that raising an 18 month old is keeping me quite busy. The thing is, though, it’s a different type of busy-ness than I knew before I was a mama. It’s more a presence, a being, […]

Gluten-free flax and almond bread

I’ve written a couple of bread recipes – I’m no specialist and it doesn’t come that easy – and until now the courgette and almond loaf from my book was our go-to gluten-free option, cramming in as it does such a good amount of greens, protein, fats and fibre. I […]

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 […]

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 […]

Coconut, turmeric and ginger cookies

This week, amid the doing and the coming and the going alongside an ongoing learning of the art of Simply Being in the countryside, I managed to bake a batch of cookies. This may not sound like a huge accomplishment to some, but anyone with a curious crawling babe and […]

Chocolate + beetroot muffins

I wanted to share this recipe, adjusted only minimally from the original by beauties Jasmine and Melissa of Hemsley + Hemsley, because it is one I come back to time and time again and it saved me from depleted hunger traps during pregnancy and in those early weeks of parenthood, […]

Turmeric, lemon and ginger chia pots

It has been a while since I shared in this online space. There are many reasons but one primary: motherhood – and the immense limitations it puts on one’s spare time; added to that, a (sleep-deprived) struggle for daily structure and a deep and ongoing dive within as this journey […]

Pea, mint and tahini dip

With summer on its way and only finding stolen moments in the kitchen as babe time continues to take precedence, I find that easy, vibrant dips and salsas are a great way to keep energy and nutrient levels up with minimum fuss and maximum potential. Also, they make a good excuse for a thin, […]
