Carrots with Feta and Sage

Sage is the herb that grows best in my garden, it’s available nearly all year round and grows all the time.

Miso Soup with Prawns and Pak Choi

Dessert

Plum Crumble

My plum crumble is a healthier and lighter version of an apple crumble which I find a bit too heavy, especially if you have it as a dessert as part of a three course meal. You won’t find any refined sugar or flour in this recipe – the flour has been replaced with gluten free […]

Hummus with Butternut Squash and Turmeric

I make hummus at least once a week. I usually make a basic version, but if I have some left over roasted beetroot or peppers I would add them too.  Beetroot hummus is probably my favourite so far and the vibrant colour brightens up your plate. Not as much colour, but avocado hummus is delicious too.
