Zucchini Labneh Naan Pizza

It is Meat Free Monday and I have another recipe idea in one of my favourite styles of cooking (after ice cream and baking of course), “easy breezy dude food”. This Zucchini Labneh Naan Pizza is quick, easy and delicious…

Caprese Sandwich

This Caprese Sandwich is another interpretation of “braaibroodjies” that I seem so keen to keep doing. There are a few recipes now on the blog playing with breads suited for a barbecue (you can see them at the end of…

Vegan Choc Mint Tart (Raw)

I am a sucker for any combination that involves cream, eggs and butter as I am sure many regular readers of this blog can attest to. But I am similarly fascinated with vegan baking and baking with alternative ingredients so…

I was inspired to cook with cider again after the Pears Roasted in Cider recipe and I think this Cider Cooked Apple, Onion and Cheddar Galette is a worthy follow up recipe. It is on the rich side but so…

Pears Roasted in Cider

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…

Miso Roasted Aubergine

Kale Chips

Chocolate Beetroot Cupakes

These Chocolate Beetroot Cupcakes have the most delicious Crème Fraiche Ganache slathered on top of them. The Crème Fraiche adds a tanginess to the ganache which I think tastes so much better than using double cream. The cupcakes are sweet…
