oven roasted sweet potato ‘fries’ with orange salt

Oven roasted sweet potato 'fries' with orange salt

It’s as if sweet potatoes and oranges were cultivated to be together as they make the perfect flavour pairing ever. I’m talking specifically about the orange-fleshed sweet potato, which have a far nicer taste and firmer texture than their white-fleshed counterparts that I find too sweet and watery. In this recipe, I will guide you on how to make healthier oven roasted ‘fries’ and finish them off with a vibrant orange salt.  Continue Reading →

green juice with cucumber, celery, mint & ginger

green juice with cucumber, celery, mint & ginger

I love the refreshing taste of cucumber and in this juice with celery apple, mint and ginger, the combination is delicious and incredibly thirst quenching.

First up I must say that I think juicing on a regular basis is a bad idea. All the important fiber gets wasted and you need a lot of fruit and vegetables to make a decent amount of juice. The calorie load of a juice is far higher than that of the fruit or vegetable in its natural state and at the end of the day you are extracting a high percentage of water. I know this because after making this green juice I allowed it to settle in the bottle and really about 85 percent is pure water and the rest the green chlorophyll rich parts. If you were under any illusion that drinking green juices in some way ‘detoxes’ your body, please check out this brilliant article which totally debunks the myth. BUT, juice can taste delicious and for a special treat it makes a nice addition to the breakfast or lunch table. It can also be awesome when making a special cocktail, and I find it most useful when I have a hangover too (but lets not go into too much detail there). Continue Reading →

sweetcorn & cheese phyllo pies

corn & cheese phyllo pies

Natures Garden invited me to look at their range  and come up with a recipe using their frozen sweetcorn. I jumped at the chance. Frozen corn is always in my freezer and I adore the sweet taste it adds and the crunchy texture it delivers. When deciding what to make I immediately thought of cheese samoosas – one of my favourite snacks. I prefer to use phyllo and bake them vs frying them. The sesame seeds give added crunch, and these melty cheese pies are perfect for the party season we are now officially in. 

Happy party days! Continue Reading →
