Mango Porridge With Goji Berries, Pecans & Black Sesame Seeds

One of the things I love about porridge, is how versatile it can be. To me, it is a blank canvas, which inspires me to think about what colours and flavours I can splash onto it each time I create it. There is nothing like a warm bowl of porridge in the morning, however, we…

Spinach Rice With Lemon, White Wine & Toasted Almond Slivers

This is my take to “spanakoriso”, which is a classic Greek spinach rice dish. Some people prefer it with more spinach, others with more rice, I like to make it with, give or take, equal quantities. The wine lends it a tangy twist, which enhances the lemon, while the crunch of the toasted almond slivers…

Smoky Red Quinoa Wraps With Veggies, Vegan Tzatziki & Chunky Chips

A highly nutritious and delicious take on the classic pita bread /gyros concept. The quinoa is amazing when cooked in this manner, both in texture and flavour. Crispy, smoky, and wonderfully complemented by the cool tzatziki and veggies. The chips are firstly steamed in a pressure cooker, or boiled, then broiled with the thyme and…

Contrasts

On my early morning walk, this image of delicate fuchsia spring blossoms, against a rough, scratchy wall in the background, caught my attention. As I took the picture, I was intrigued. The way opposites, when hand in hand, somehow create balance, truly fascinates me. We see this in nature, in art, but also in people….

Celeriac & Leek Soup With Fresh Mint Leaves

A creamy, delicate aromatic soup, which is both warming, and light in calories. Highly nutritious, easy to digest and very simple to prepare, this soup can be a wonderful starter, or a light main. Here, we paired it with some homemade herby focaccia bread. Celeriac & Leek Soup With Fresh Mint Leaves Serves 6-8 Ingredients:…

Hearty Colourful Veggie Stew

This is a beautiful, hearty recipe, packed full of flavours, nutrients and colours! We like to mix it with a grain; quinoa, orzo, couscous, cracked wheat, or rice, are some ideas, but it is delicious on its own too. Hearty Colourful Veggie Stew Serves 8-10 Ingredients: 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped 3 white potatoes,…

Beluga Lentil Pastitsio

Pastitsio is based on a very similar concept as lasagne. However, it only consists of three layers: the pasta, a bolognese sauce and then a creamy béchamel to top it all up. The pasta used traditionally, is a type of thick long hollow macaroni, resembling somewhat giant spaghetti. Alternatively, it can be made with any…

Theresa’s Semolina Halva With Roasted Pistachios & Sesame Seeds

In Greece, halva is considered a classic Greek recipe, although it became known to Greeks some time around the end of the 12th century. Various versions of this dessert exist in all Balkan countries, some in the Middle East and even in India and Pakistan. In Arabic, the word halva means sweet. It is usually…

Tomato, Leek & Spinach Lasagne With Fresh Basil & Nutmeg

This is one of the most delicious vegan lasagne I have ever tasted! It may be a little time consuming, but it is so worth it! For colour and taste, I use two different types of lasagne, one with spinach and one plain, but this is not necessary. However, do select fresh produce for this…
