Breakfast

Spinach, banana and coconut smoothie

A rare purchase for me, I bought a jar of organic Whole Earth peanut butter the other day to make a deeply-craved raw peanut and cacao cake and have been adding big dollops of it to everything. This smoothie didn’t escape its clutches nd I seem to have whipped up a […]

Gluten-free hazelnut and honey bread

I made this heavenly loaf yesterday and I can barely step away. With a hungry gluten intolerant man on my hands a good bread that is quick to knock together and doesn’t taste like sugary cardboard from the free-from section of my local superstore is something of a holy grail. […]

The best almond milk

Almond milk is the best. I was raised on full fat cow’s milk and have always craved its rich creamy texture in a dairyless alternative. I like to play around with other bases – cashew, rice, sesame and lately a bit of hemp – but almond is my king nut. […]

Kale, camargue and egg brunch bowl

Ben has been busy filling his newly glazed hand-thrown bowls with quick and yummy goodness. Enjoy. This impromptu creation that I once thew together based on what was in the kitchen has fast become a quick, easy and protein packed brunchtime favourite. And since we always have a wonderful abundance […]

Spiced winter goji and coconut buckwheat porridge

As the wintry cold threatens to return and grey mornings creep back in, there is nothing like a warm breakfast bowl to make early starts (and street food has a lot of them) that little bit more bearable. From the first chilly winds of October through to the appearance of […]

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 […]
