Raw Chocolate Raspberry Tart – Gluten Free, Vegan

Chocolate, raspberries and ginger are such a heavenly combination. A while back I made some mini Raw Chocolate Raspberry Tarts for a feature SBS were doing on plant food, but felt they had a bit of a Valentine’s vibe, so re-visited the recipe. My originals were quite light and not too sweet. This time round […]

Mango Coconut Milk Popsicles – Sugar Free, Dairy Free

My goodness I have really been struggling with this summer heat lately. I’ve become The Night Prowler. Restless in the heat of the night, pacing around the lounge all hot and sticky in efforts to cool down. And do you know what’s worse? My partner doesn’t seem to be bothered by it. He lies in […]

Vegan Black Bean Burgers

The last few weeks I’ve been soaking and sprouting like a mad thing – chickpeas for the Healthy Baked Falafel recipe and more recently, buckwheat for the Raw Vegan Kofta. I’ve been enjoying the fruits of my labours immensely because, having a very sensitive gut, these typically hard to digest grains and legumes have given […]

Raw Vegan Kofta with Minted Cashew ‘Yoghurt’ and Ferments

I was flicking through the gorgeous Dish magazine the other day, and spied a lamb kofta recipe drizzled with feta and some other herbs as part of a Summer BBQ spread. It inspired me to give your traditional BBQ a conscious make-over! I dog-eared the page and decided to re-create the recipe, entirely vegan – and as […]

Coconut Cacao Smoothie

I usually start my day with a nourishing Green Smoothie – however – thanks to this strange Summer we’re having, my plants don’t know what they’re doing – they’ve all gone to seed so quickly. So until I can make it back to the Farmer’s Market to collect some more plant babies, I have to […]

Healthy Baked Falafel with Turmeric Tahini Dressing

  This healthy Baked Falafel recipe has been in my mind for a few months now, it was definitely a recipe that needed making and re-making to get it just-so, which is why it took so long to create. I’m really not a big falafel eater. The only time I used to have them, was […]

Dairy Free Papaya Lassi, Health Benefits of Papaya

  Summer time calls for a nice cool, creamy Papaya Lassi, don’t you think? A lassi is a traditional yoghurt-based drink from India, typically made with fresh mangoes. But for this recipe, I’ve replaced the yoghurt with thick and creamy coconut yoghurt (probiotic rich) to make it diary free, and used deliciously ripe papayas. I […]

Raw Chocolate Cherry Cake with Caramelised Prunes

  With just over a week till Christmas, I’ve been busy trialling recipes out for the special day, and this Raw Chocolate Cherry Cake is as festive as it gets. The addition of caramelised prunes was a genius idea (because, prunes + dark chocolate = always winning). Although incredibly indulgent, it is still made from […]
