Lemon and Coriander Hummus

Sometimes the simplest things are the most delicious. Don’t get me wrong, elaborate dishes gracing your table can be things of beauty, but on a weeknight when you’re tired, or you’re craving something quick but oh, so comforting – this hummus is where it’s at. The Brits are hummus obsessed. Last week, we had (I’m…

Poached Eggs with Spicy Edamame and Spinach

My cousin got married this weekend in the most beautiful low-key wedding in the country. The two day celebration was filled with so much love, laughter and happiness, along with a LOT of food and wine. We ate some absolutely spectacular dishes, which left me feeling so inspired and eager to get back into my kitchen…

Rice Bowl: Ginger, Edamame and Avocado

This bowl of fiery goodness is absolutely divine. The sun has started to shine on London (for now!), so it is the perfect time to whack out some lovely salads, and enjoy some really fresh, wonderful flavours. This bowl is inspired by Nigella Lawson’s rice bowl, whose influence knows no bounds in my kitchen! This…

Lentil, Tahini and Cumin Salad with Spinach and Walnuts

After a weekend of some wonderful cake-shaped indulgences, I felt the need to balance things out a bit with some lighter, healthier meals this week! I’ve been feeling a little under the weather, and haven’t really felt like trekking off to the supermarket, so this lunch was very much a store cupboard/leftovers in the fridge…

Roast Beetroot, Lentil and Feta Salad

  Salads definitely aren’t just for summer. There are so many exciting seasonal ingredients which are perfect for wholesome, nourishing salads for when the days are still cold and blustery, and you need something to give your immune system a boost. I’ve felt a cold slowly creeping on this week, so I’m desperately trying to keep…

Zingy Broccoli, Kale and Avocado Plate

This bright, zingy plate packs an incredible punch. Packed full of beautiful flavours, and it’s wonderfully healthy too. With fresh, zesty, juiciness from the lime, and a sharp kick from the chilli, this dish is one of my new favourites. After a trip to the farmer’s market on Saturday, I got incredibly giddy and excited…

Pomegranate Quinoa Salad

  Spring has sprung! The weather was absolutely glorious yesterday, and I was smiling all day as a result. It’s incredible how much of an effect the weather has on our moods. That and food, of course. This salad put a giant smile on my face, every mouthful transporting me to a warmer climes. Admittedly,…

Salad crunch bowls: into the spotlight

When it’s cold and miserable outside, we all crave comforting soups and hearty stews – food that my dad says ‘warms your bones’. After a very cold and wet start to the year, I’ve certainly had my fill of comforting food. So now that we’ve reached March, and I feel optimistic about spring and sunshine…

The Mighty Shakshuka

Shakshuka (definition): ‘to mix or shake up’  This is my favourite breakfast. Reserved for those mornings when I want to eat something that feels like a giant hug, shakshuka is a restorative, exciting and unbelievably simple dish to make. Shakshuka is a very popular breakfast in the Middle East, but has recently become a staple brunch…

Carb Substitutes…worth the hype?

I am a diabetic. I cannot tell you whether I am Type 1 or Type 2, because I don’t actually know. According to my doctor, I am an ‘enigma’. A month ago, I was diagnosed with diabetes, but there are several different factors that currently leave me straddling the fence between both Types. A little about me:…
