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…

Vegan Kale and Coconut Soup

The idea behind this Kale Turmeric Coconut Soup was to create a dish as healthy and nutrious as possible. Not just healthy and vegan but really delicious as well. And it worked a charm and perfect timing while we are in the middle of Cape Town winter. I packed the soup with as many healthy ingredients as I could: beautiful Kale, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Garlic, fresh Ginger and Turmeric. All those ingredients are filled with nutritional values that are through the…

Vegan Chocolate Cake

This Vegan Chocolate Cake is a recipe from Nigella Lawson. I came across it on Twitter when she tweeted the link to the recipe and mentioned that it was from her new book.

Coconut oil especially seems to be everywhere and I have succumbed to the trend and have a tub of oil that I cook with instead of vegetable oil. (We do get bombarded with messages about what is good for us only to be told what was good last year is now not so lets see what the experts say next year about coconut.) The one thing I…

I do love one pot cooking.  A delicious dinner in under two hours with minimal fuss and effort. Although it is never too hot outside to have a curry, the days are getting that bit shorter and its time for this recipe to start featuring in many incarnations on my dinner table. I use store bought curry powder mixes without any shame. I do add a bit here and there but feel that mixing a curry blend should rather be…

This sherbet is refreshing, summery and tropical, while the smokiness from the grilled pineapple adds a wonderful depth. A sherbet is usually a sorbet with dairy added which in this instance I replaced with light coconut milk. And I do think we can squeeze it into the “new year healthy eating” category. I mean, who can survive a month without ice cream? It is quite easy to make as you don’t have to hassle with a custard and the only…
