Green Goddess Pasta

I don’t know about you but lately I have been putting pesto on everything! I have been giving the traditional basil sauce a bit of a twist by adding in different herbs such as parsley or coriander and whatever greenery I can get my hands on. This green goddess pesto is packed full of natural superfoods, from the brain boosting walnuts to the all round amazing extra virgin olive oil (the only oil you should be making pesto with!). …

Green Felafel Burger

Who said burgers can’t be healthy? These green felafel burgers pack in plenty of veggie servings as well as some serious plant based protein and fibre (seriously, forget the wacky powders, chickpeas are so full of goodness, they should be called superfoods). Use a wholegrain/high fibre or sourdough buns for extra health benefits.

Earth Bowl with Spicy Avocado Dressing

So lets talk about salad. Can you make friends with it? Absolutely. Gone are the days when salad meant a few limp lettuce leaves, slice of tomato and some grated cheese (if you wanted to be fancy) thrown on the side of the BBQ meat. These days salads are anything from fancy starters to full, nourishing meals that stand on their own. …

Pumpkin and quinoa cakes

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You might have noticed that pumpkin, chickpeas and quinoa are just a few of my favourite ingredients to use and I have combined all three here with some mediterranean style flavours to make these tasty little cakes. Full of flavour and not too difficult to make, these little pumpkin patties make the perfect portable lunch for all you food peppers out there.  This makes a big enough batch for a weeks worth of lunches (or more!). I like to serve these cakes with a simple tomato passata sauce and some greens but they would be just as at home with some hummus or yoghurt sauce in a wrap, burger or on top of a salad.

Summer Vegetable Ratatouille

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASummer is my favourite season, it has a lot to do with the 3 months of warmth and sunshine but also because the veggie garden is so abundant during this season. Zucchini, patty pan squash, basil and tomatoes all thrive in our veggie patch and often we have so much we give it away. Even if you don’t have the room for a vegetable plot or a friendly neighbour you can still make the most of summer’s lovely seasonal produce with cheaper prices in the green grocers. This Summer veg hot pot is perfect for using the best produce summer has to offer and also is the perfect make ahead meal to take for lunch to uni/school or work. …

Cauliflower and Zucchini soup with chickpea croutons

In winter I love to make up a massive batch of soup to keep in the fridge to eat throughout the week. They are so easy to make, just put in a pot and let simmer away. I love soups to have heaps of veggies in them as well as a bit of spice with things like ginger for added immunity, this one doesn’t disappoint.

Cauliflower Tabouli

IMG_2837

The old tabouli gets a summer makeover here by replacing the bulgar wheat with grated cauliflower or “cauliflower rice”. It sounds a bit strange to use raw cauliflower in a salad but it is actually delicious for something so simple. Serve this with felafel or your favourite veggie burgers and plenty of hummus. Also good wrapped up in a buckwheat wrap. …
