This is part of a series on some of my favourite whole foods – things I consider kitchen staples and use often in my recipes. I hope you get to discover something fun and new about them! The humble flaxseed, the ‘it’ seed before chia came along. I am particularly fond of them as they […]

Apricot Chocolate Popped Quinoa Bars

These no-bake Apricot Chocolate Popped Quinoa Bars are a breeze to make and packed full of plant protein. Pumpkin seed butter holds them together – giving a pop of green whilst providing some zinc.

These Healthy Butternut Squash Black Bean Tacos are gut friendly – made with soaked beans (to reduce anti-nutrients and improve bioavailability of minerals), authentic corn tortillas (gluten free), beet sauerkraut (probiotics) and finished with a creamy raw cashew aioli (dairy free).

Classic Refried Black Beans {V}

Classic Refried Black Beans – a versatile plant-based staple to enjoy with tacos, burritos, nachos, or simply with a side of rice. Great to have in the freezer for an easy mid-week meal.

Creamy Raw Cashew Aioli

Creamy Raw Cashew Aioli – a vegan alternative to the classic and a great staple recipe to keep on hand for everything from roast potatoes, to tacos and homemade burgers.
