Melon, mint and cucumber smoothie

Continuing the green theme… Sweltering through the heat in London last week, I was berating myself for not having filled up the fridge with anything smoothie-appropriate. Too hot and tired to think strategically about food, I just wanted to whizz up something easy and refreshing. Then I spied a leftover […]

Raw zucchini pasta + red pepper pesto

As summer hovers near and the optimistic spring sun creeps out from behind the clouds, lighter dinners and fresh local veg become increasingly called for on bright garden evenings. And when time (and funds) might be in short suppluly, nothing hits the spot more perfectly than this modern riff on […]

Grilled cauliflower steaks with salsa verde

This quick little recipe is so big on flavour and so small on ingredients and method that it is sure to become one of your favourite ways to engage with that most humble yet nutritious veg patch hero, the cauliflower.

Apricot + lemongrass mousse

This little dairy-free mousse is a pretty radical combination of macadamia, apricot and lemongrass.

  Once you start really loving chocolate, no one can take that away from you. Not nutrition teachers, not your escalating grocery bill – nothing. I have been a slave to chocolate since I can remember and sometimes, on long days where your feet barely touch the ground and you shove some […]

Miso porridge with avocado and crispy kale

Over at Pura Vida Social Club, as well as the next supper club on November 12 (there are still a few early bird tickets left so quick!), we have an exciting morning-based gathering in the pipeline and it has propelled me to experiment with some more leftfield winter breakfast ideas. […]

Raw carrot, zucchini and orange salad

Yesterday, although it was October 1 and I awoke to rainclouds and endless grey skies, the sun came out for lunch and so I whipped up this autumnal salad from my veggie box, captured its bright and beautiful colours, and it felt just perfect for the transition of the seasons. And […]
