Apple Crumble Bircher With Macadamia Milk

Ever since I first tried almond milk, I have had problems with it intermittently. It is very random and has nothing to do with how fresh it is, although I have noticed that I will most definitely have a tummy upset if the almond milk is a day old. But then again on other days, I am absolutely fine. Walnut milk, macadamia milk and pistachio milk (my favourite, there is a lovely recipe in my book) cause no issues whatsoever. Have any of you fac... Read More >>

10-Minute Vegan Raw Broccoli Tabouli

Following on the heel of this cauliflower rice recipe, I would love to this share this broccoli recipe that involves processing a whole head of broccoli including the stalk into tiny couscous like consistency. Broccoli is an amazing vegetable and quite versatile when you choose to get adventurous with. The tiny little buds on the floret have a seed/grain like texture that makes it ideal to form the base of a nourishing salad without actually ... Read More >>

Five minute... Read More >>

Creamy Coconut Millet Porridge

  Growing up, my favourite breakfast porridge was a sweet bulgur concoction often served with nuts and fresh cream.

I didn't care for them at the time other than that bulgur porridge and toasted cornflakes. My tastebuds were primitive and stayed like ... Read More >>

Coffee Nut Milk

  My mum always replied with "The person who cooks can't really eat much!" when we admonished her for not digging in with gusto,   a delicious meal she had toiled over. As a child, I never understood that. Even less when I was in my teens and my expanding tastebuds had suddenly opened up a whole new world of flavour sensations for me. How could someone not want to stuff their face with a dish so divine, you could smell it... Read More >>

Charred Broccoli Mexican Salad

  It is nice to be able to look at your new year's resolution when half the year has passed you by and realise that you are still sticking with it. At the start of the year I made a promise to myself - to sit down and eat a nourishing meal either from leftovers or one I had put together quite simply. This was hard for me because as much as I hate to admit it, eating food was low on my priority of things that needed my attention. I cooke... Read More >>
