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 […]

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, […]

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, […]

Umami brown rice with arame, hemp and garlicky almonds

Since I first encountered short-grain brown rice, it has held a place of such regal value in my ingredient hierarchy and the long-grain version will never quite cut it in the same way: nutty, nuggety and just so satisfying to eat, it is something we are sure to have in abundance in our […]

Last of summer strawberry salad 

This summer we have had a love affair with strawberries that surely cannot be rivalled. Our local store gets in the biggest, reddest, juiciest ones and I just couldn’t get enough. Never has fruit held so much juicy joy and goodness for me as in these first months of pregnancy, […]

Raw vegan turmeric mayonnaise

Since this is one in a long repertoire of plant-based recipes I’ve recently posted, I feel I should clarify for any new friends that I am not vegan. As you can read in more detail in my book, I eat organic meat and eggs and wild cold water fish occasionally, because after much trial […]

Tahini celeriac remoulade with quinoa and walnuts 

My mother is the queen of quick and easy cooking and always falls back on a delicious remoulade when things need eating up. And so, without even thinking about it much (actually I was thinking about a cacao and raspberry chia recipe I am planning on trying), yesterday I started […]

Vegan cashew and rocket pesto 

In my experience, a good pesto is key to any kitchen and while I have long loved the traditional incarnation in all its parmigiano glory, a tasty plant-based pesto is a must for adding some quick, zesty flavour to everyday lunches and dinners. This is a basic recipe that relies on […]

Raw savoy with almonds and chilli

I have been so busy writing my book these past few weeks, it has taken all the restraint I have not to share the recipes here as they come into creation. But the best things come to those who wait and so on both sides of the deal we must […]
