Watermelon Agua Fresca

An agua fresca is a Spanish beverage made with fresh juice, sugar syrup and a combination of natural flavour ingredients like nuts, seeds, herbs or cereal. This watermelon agua fresca with its ruby red tones, tangy lime and sweet star anise flavouring is not only delicious but stunning to look at. Add tequila to the mix and let the party begin! It has barely been over a year since we moved back into our home after a long renovation and it ... Read More >>

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 >>

The sauce is the star of a korma curry often made from cashew nuts, seeds and cream with a hint o... 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 >>

Cauliflower Rice Biryani Salad

A few years ago when people discovered that they could do so much more with cauliflower other than bake or roast it, it was like a whole new genre of cooking opened up to discover. Cauliflower was pulsed and crumbed to mimic raw rice and form a pure veggie pizza base amongst other things. It has always been one of my favourite vegetables and a cauliflower curry was my childhood staple. I use it every chance I get right from curries to deep fr... Read More >>
