Feta and Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms

Portobello mushrooms are actually one of my favourite things. Ever. They are so flavoursome and they make the perfect base for this recipe! I actually use three different mushrooms in this recipe. Some may call it overkill, I call it heaven. Before I became vegetarian I used to think of mushrooms as quite bland. Iย didn’t dislike them, but they weren’t my vegetable of choice. Now we always keep a massive punnet of mushrooms in our fridge at all times and our spice cupboard ALWAYS contains some form of dried mushrooms – normally porcini.

Summer Berry Brioche Pudding

OK so I decided to try and entice Summer back to the Brighton shores by whipping up a traditional Berry Summer Pudding. The pudding turned out great, but unfortunately I can’t say the same for the weather! Have we really had our summer this year? I swear Iย blinked and it was gone!

Courgette and Chickpea Falafels

Falafel are a Middle-Eastern snack made from chickpeas. They are normally fried and served in pitta bread, and man are they are delicious! They are absolutely perfect for this time of year, they taste great served with couscous or salad.

Frozen Yoghurt Bars with Bee Pollen and Berries

This beautiful sunny weather has been dreamy! I am going to absolutely make the most of it, because lets face itย – this is England. Who knows how long this is going to last! The thing is, in beautiful sunny weather I get massive cravings for iced desserts. Obviously gorging on ice cream is not going to make me feel good! So I wanted to make a delicious iced dessert recipe that wasn’t going to be laden with artificial rubbish! Continue reading “Frozen Yoghurt Bars with Bee Pollen and Berries”

Raw Chocolate Caramel Slices

I am under no illusion that this recipe is super healthy. But it is healthier than its traditional sister tray bake – Millionaires’ Shortbread. How I hear you say? Well, first of all, this is made from raw cacao, which is sweetened only with honey! The health benefits of raw cacao are vast and in my opinion, it tastes better than normal chocolate! There is basically less sugar in this, and the ingredients used maintain most of their original nutrients – unlike the really processed stuff you get in shop.

Speedy Summer Couscous Salad

My super speedy summer couscous salad requires no cooking and can be ready in less than 15 minutes. It is my go-to lunch when I need something healthy, quick and delicious. It’s ideal for those moments when you have over-binged on Netflix, it’s about 10pm and you need something prepped for lunch the next day! Continue reading “Speedy Summer Couscous Salad”
