Za'atar Rolls

It feels like autumn has arrived. The days are still warm but it feels like there is a slight chill in the air and the mornings are definitely just that bit darker for longer. This means we are heading to meals consisting of nourishing broths and soups. And I really do think these Za’atar Rolls are a must to bake to mop up all those comforting soups. But while we wait for the cold to properly arrive, these soft rolls…

Chocolate Dukkah

My new favourite thing has to be Chocolate Dukkah. Made with cacao nibs, this is a sweet, chocolate version of the aromatic savoury spice mix, dukkah that is one of my favourite accompaniments to jazz up salads, roast veggies and makes a fab dipping sauce with some olive oil. Chocolate dukkah is a sublime mix of slightly bitter cacao nibs, pistachios, hazelnuts, macadamias and cinnamon, and it makes a delicious dessert topping. I wish it was my idea but originally saw the…

I love the photography (I think the cover is one of the most beautiful recipe book covers) and the recipes are hassle free, yet…

Coconut and FlaxSeed Porridge

Coconut and Flaxseed Porridge with Spiced Almond and Date Butter is quite a mouthful but then luckily it is a tasty and pretty healthy mouthful. I recently received some products from Crede Natural Oils and in the parcel were packets of coconut flour, flaxseed flour (also known as linseeds) and some nut butters. I am always keen to bake with “alternative” flours but have read that coconut flour is quite tricky so shelved that idea. I did not want to make pancakes…

6 Healthy and Tasty Recipes for the New Year
