Halloumi Aubergine Pizza Boats

Halloumi Aubergine Pizza Boats

Hi everyone, sorry I haven’t posted anything recently, I have been travelling around Sri Lanka for the past few weeks! I’m hoping to write up the journey and experiences over the coming weeks for the travel section so watch this space! I may even attempt a Sri Lankan rice and curry recipe to supplement it, which is a variety of around 5 curries and chutneys served with a huge mound of rice. I made this halloumi aubergine...
Sweet Potato Spaghetti & Beetballs

Sweet Potato Spaghetti & Beetballs

Sweet potato spaghetti & beetballs is a recipe which has been rattling around in my head for months, but I haven’t had the time or ingredients to try it out. I love spiralising vegetables and if you follow my Instagram you will see courgette ‘spaghetti’ crop up a number of times. This recipe uses spiralised sweet potato, which gives the dish a subtle sweetness and a splash of colour. I don’t think I have ever eaten a real...
Black Rice Bowl

Black Rice Bowl

Black, or Forbidden Rice is a nutritional powerhouse. It has been dubbed the “healthiest rice in the world ” due to its high levels of iron, vitamin E, and antioxidants.

It is called Forbidden Rice because during the days of the Ching and Ming dynasties, Forbidden Rice was exclusively reserved for...
Mushroom Kale and Nut Cauliflower Risotto

Vegetable Noodle Pad Thai

Vegetable Noodle Pad Thai

I made this wonderfully healthy gluten-free vegan Vegetable Noodle Pad Thai after my housemates and I had been to kettlercise at our local gym. It was so fresh and colourful, who would’ve thought that noodles made of vegetables could look and taste so good! My housemate Amy has a spiralizer, a kitchen gadget that I have wanted to get my hands on for ages and I highly recommend them, even if it’s just for a bit of...
Simple Daal

Simple Daal

Daal is one of my comfort foods. I love how versatile it is, with no one of my daals ever tasting the same. I’m often asked for the recipe, but I can rarely relay the recipe exactly as I add whatever takes my fancy at the time. My simple daal however is the reliable base of all my creations, and the ingredients rarely deviate from below. Daal shouldn’t be complicated and is rarely spiced in India, I...
