Now that I have gotten over the “shock horror” thought of fermentation, here is a quick and easy recipe I was given for some homemade coleslaw, which, once made can be kept in a sealed jar in the fridge for as long as you want, or in my case as long as it lasts, which isn’t too long. This slaw tastes more like a vinaigrette type slaw than a creamy one, which to be honest I much prefer. Continue reading “Fermented Coleslaw”
I love the simplicity of this meal and the freshness of the basil pesto, it tastes moreish, hearty and filling and can be stirred into some pasta, used as a salad dressing or topped on some cauilflower steaks as I have done here. The cauliflower steaks are also amazing on a BBQ as the cauliflower takes on a really nice smoky and chargrilled flavour. Continue reading “Brazil Nut Pesto & Cauli Steaks”
I know, I know, the title probably sounds a little scary and off putting, but it really isn’t as awful as it may sound. I have been reading a lot recently about fermented foods and the health benefits they can bring and have been experimenting with coleslaw, sauerkraut, kimchi and kombucha. Coincidently in my quest for further knowledge, a great local business, Barra Organics and the most amazing crazy French lady, began running workshops on how to start fermenting foods and after attending a few of them, I am now hooked. I am nowhere near an expert, but just want to highlight it isn’t as scary to start as it seems! Continue reading “Fermented Foods”
This really is the ultimate, indulgent and moreish dessert, which is super easy to make and super impressive to serve and I think, tastes very authentic.
This is a really fresh, light and zingy salad. If you are not a fan of tofu or don’t have any in, then don’t worry too much, There is plenty enough here to fill you up without it. When you read the recipe it does seem a bit of a faff, but it is actually really easy to put together and well worth it. Continue reading “Thai Noodle Salad”
I don’t make cakes very often, mainly as they normally aren’t that healthy and I don’t trust myself not to eat the whole darn thing. This cake is in the middle of the scale, or so I’ve convinced myself! And yes, it really is made with sweet potatoes! Continue reading “Sweet Potato & Walnut Cake”
