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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Coconut and cardamom bounty balls

I promise I will post a savoury recipe soon, but as my 38th week of pregnancy approaches and calories are in high demand, it’s hard not to focus on the infinite rainbow of delectable healthy sweet treats that occupy my mind and days in the kitchen. And they usually involve cacao. […]

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 […]

Quick buckwheat crepes

My mother recently stayed at the visionary Vivamayr clinic and returned with an unbelievably simple and quick buckwheat crepe recipe. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to try it and have spent the afternoon knee deep in gluten-free pancakes of all shapes and sizes as I perfect the milk […]

Saffron and honey roast pears

I hope you will forgive my silence over the last few weeks. Writing my book has been such a huge process, one I am infinitely grateful for and throwing myself into in every way imaginable, but it leaves little time for other activities. I have spent most of the days […]
