I know it’s my second post about chickpeas in as many weeks but I just had to share this recipe with you all. This is one of my absolute favorite ways to cook chickpeas. What’s more, with everyone meal-prepping at the moment this dish would be a great addition to your menu. The brown rice and spinach couldn’t be easier to whip up and the chickpeas only get better with a day or two in the fridge. Genius!
I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to feel like myself again. After the craziness of the holidays it’s nice to get back into my regular routine. Basically, I’m all about my treadmill and power bowls at the moment. This week’s obsession is my Crunchy Roast Chickpea and Sweet Potato Power Bowl with Garlicky Kale. It’s a nourishing, comforting dish that leaves you feeling satisfied.
Happy 2019 everyone! 😸✨ After spending the last couple of weeks over-indulging, it’s nice to press “reset” with a vegan smoothie. My absolute favorite at the moment is this Vegan Blueberry and Banana Smoothie. This smoothie is packed full of antioxidants and plant based nourishment. Just the thing to get you going in the New Year.
Looking for some simple yet impressive nibbles to serve with drinks this holiday season? Well, look no further than my Fabulously Festive Polenta and Pesto Canapes! These canapes are super yum and virtually fuss free as both components can be made ahead of time. This means you can spend more time with your guests whilst they marvel at your innovative cooking skills. Everybody wins!
It’s easy to forget to look after yourself at this time of year. I mean, I love me a list but lately it seems never ending. There’s just so much going on; holiday prep, end of year concerts, cleaning out the spare room for guests, all those last minute jobs at work… you get the picture. That’s why, for today’s post I wanted to share my Zucchini Noodle Bowl with Tahini Dressing. It’s a great way to nourish your body whilst keeping things simple and fun.
I just love this time of year and all the traditions that come with it. Sending Christmas cards in the mail (yeah, I’m old-school like that 😉 ), putting up the tree, planning the Christmas feast, and the family coming together. Another tradition in my house during the holiday season are these Ginger Snap Cookies. A delicious, ginger-y cookie that’s not too sweet and super simple to make. Yes please!
The Holiday Potluck seems to be all the rage this time of year. And that’s cool with me ’cause you know I love to cook. 🙂 Whether is a work function, family do, or get-together with the girls my favorite thing to make for a potluck has to be a great big salad. That’s because they’re super easy, look impressive, and taste delicious. Take my Roasted Beetroot Salad with Feta and Walnuts for example. The contrast of the colours and textures means it won’t get lost among the dips and chips and the flavours will have your work colleagues asking, “Can I get the recipe?”.

Okay kitty cats, let me introduce you to my new favorite pesto. This Spinach and Macadamia Nut Pesto is bursting with deliciousness and super easy to make. Perfect as a dip, pasta sauce, on a pizza, or in a wrap you won’t believe how versatile it is. Seriously, I could happily eat this pesto all week and not get bored.
I absolutely adore all the delicious fruit available at this time of year. One of my favorites is the fabulously orange, sweet and juicy rockmelon. Now, you could dice it up as part of a fruit salad but why limit yourself? My Refreshing Rockmelon Smoothie Bowl is fun, energizing, and just a little bonkers – exactly what you need on those hot summer days.
I just love a tasty, abundant power bowl. There’s something about all the colours and textures that reminds me of a pot of treasure. My Crispy Chip Power Bowl is no exception. Bursting with vitamins and packed full of slow-burning energy, this power bowl is a real winner!
