Breakfast

Za’atar Manouche (gluten-free)

Breakfast is the best meal of the day for me because you can get away with eating almost anything from savoury to sweet and no one can ask you not to. I like to mix up what I have every morning and keep my options limitless. Lebanese cuisine has to be one of my top […]

Healthy Veggie Lasagne

Everyone loves lasagne, I mean what is there not to like about it?! It is one of the biggest comfort foods out there; it has the perfect layer of carb, protein and fat keeping you full and satisfied. The traditional lasagne, however, we grew up having isn’t the best for us with all the processed […]

Spiced Okra Stew

This is one of the most popular dishes that go down really well in many middle eastern countries; commonly known as “Bamia”. It’s a hearty stew despite the amount of ingredients. I love serving this on a bed of brown rice and quinoa with salad and green peppers. My family also enjoy it with a […]

Golden Hasselback Apple

Apples are such a fun fruit to use when making a dessert or a breakfast treat. It’s sweet but not overpowering and goes really well with more nutty toned foods. Making apple crumble can take a while, especially for the filling to cook and soften on the stove.  So I decided to try a more […]

Pomegranate & Brussels Sprout Salad

Even though brussels sprouts are a Autumn/Winter vegetable, I love them all year round, especially during Spring because that’s when all your summer salad cravings come around. This salad is so light, fresh and crisp it will leave you perfectly satisfied and not bloated or full. The roasted Brussels sprouts is a wonderfully hearty base, […]

Nearing the end of November and beginning of the month of December only means one thing. Winter is upon us! What better way to start a chilly, crispy morning with a delicious bowl of warm apple crumble (with vanilla ice cream if you desire for an added texture and flavour). Since it’s also the apple […]

Quinoa Dolma

Dolma is essentially just Vine leaves stuffed with so much goodness from the greens to the grains. It has to be one of my ultimate comfort foods ever since I was younger and when cooking it, it will leave your kitchen smelling incredibly delicious! Many say that Dolma is a difficult dish to master and […]

“Chilli” Stuffed Peppers

First off, I thought we’d better make good use of those glorious Autumn bell peppers. I wanted to make stuffed bell peppers that weren’t super heavy and cheesy, so I drew some inspiration from the all famous Texan ‘chili con carne’ and stuffed them with a simplified vegan lentil and chickpea version. The peppers roast in […]

Healthy “Galaxy” Mousse

Sometimes after a heavy and rich meal we like something divine and light to finish on a sweet note. So, instead of the full-fat raw cream and eggs to provide the smooth base for our chocolate concoction we will be using coconut cream. It gives the perfect, most ideal texture and consistency, that you wouldn’t be […]
