Feta and roast vegetable frittata muffins

In nutrition clinic, I so often see that, for whatever reason, many of us aren’t eating enough protein. Protein provides the building blocks for all our bodily systems and it is so important for optimal vitality and wellness. Through recent diet fads and a much-needed move away from constant meat […]

Saffron spiced potato, leek and almond soup

The time is ripe for another hand-me-down nugget of culinary nourishment here and I can hardly contain my joy at sharing it. I can always rely on my cherished fried Tehya Sky to send me the best recipes from her Californian zen den across the pond. Just when I am hungrily […]

Easy Moroccan fish and potato stew

  Ben and I are die hard Bill Granger fans and when, last week, I had a hankering for a warm, protein-rich fish stew, he was our go-to inspiration – the perfect master for something clean, easy and packed with layers of fragrant spice and comforting, grounding flavours. Because sometimes the body gives such […]

Beetroot, pesto and halloumi wraps

These wraps have been a long time in the making and quite an evolutionary process. Many of my favourite recipes seem to tumble out first time lucky, but these guys required a little more devotion to get just right; luckily for our hungry and sometimes disorganised household there has been an abundance […]

As the tail end of storm Jonas taps on the skylights with a relentless torrent of rain and wind, I am pretty sure there couldn’t be a better time to post these warming, nourishing and perfectly comforting bowls of creamy cashew chicken broth and nutrient-packed veggies. This quick and hearty little […]

Black bean soup

Sending much love and light to you all from Costa Rica. After 24 hours travelling, we arrived in the forest just over a week ago and have slowly been adjusting to a different pace of life: in between assisting a five day primal feelings workshop, racing into the ocean, listening […]

Cauliflower, apricot and tomato dahl

  We usually get a cauliflower in our weekly veg box and I am always looking for new ways to use it. Often dismissed as the most boring of the crucifer ours family, cauliflower is a lovely and versatile vegetable and lends a gentle unobtrusive crunch and creaminess to any […]

Quinoa stuffed squash with almond and apricot

These little bundles of goodness and joy signify everything I love about autum: bright characterful little gourds, warming wintry nuts and spices and the imminent childhood thrills of celebrating Halloween, bonfire night and eventually Christmas. Around this time of year I always feel a little shift in the kitchen: earthy […]

Golden beet, brown rice and arame salad

Last week in our organic veg box we got some amazing golden beetroots and my first thought was to roast them with some dijon. I have never had this before, and have no idea where it popped up from, but something about the sweet warmth of the beets and the hot, […]

Chilled avocado and coconut soup

I am on the third and final day of an amazing and restorative (if challenging) juice cleanse, and since my mind wanders mostly toward the beautiful sunshine outside and what I am going to eat tomorrow, I thought I would share this simple and delicious recipe for what I have come […]
