Easy Dairy Free Milkshake (Banana & Walnut)

Perfect for kids (and big kids), this dairy free milkshake made with ripe bananas and soaked walnuts makes for a quick and healthy breakfast. Granted, it’s not the lurid yellow colour we typically associate with banana milkshakes, but it’s delicious all the same. I guess […]

Pear, Walnut & Feta Tart

Crispy Roasted Cauliflower Leaves

Like most people, I’ve gone the vast majority of my life without even considering that you might be able to eat cauliflower leaves. When I’ve previously bought cauliflowers from the supermarket, they’ve barely had any leaves to speak of and I’ve never managed to successfully […]

Tangy Blood Orange & Tofu Curry

Tangy Blood Orange & Tofu Curry

If you weren’t aware of it already; it’s blood orange season! Unless you shop in Waitrose. They only sell “blush oranges”… Waitrose shoppers prefer demure fruit. Anyway. I love blood oranges; the flavour is so much stronger than normal oranges and the red blush inside is […]
