Guilt Free Banana Ice Cream

This is recipe is just fantastic. Zero nasties, zero indulgence, just a great treat! Whenever I have leftover bananas that are starting to turn black, I just slice them and pop them in the freezer. Then when it’s time for a little treat, I whizz them into this great home made ice cream. The only…

Aubergine Parcels

These parcels look like much more work than what they are. The original recipe used mozzarella, but I also made some with soft goats cheese, which in my opinion worked better. Why not try both? Ingredients: 2 Aubergines Olive oil Mozzarella or soft goats cheese (or both!) Basil Tomatoes Slice the aubergines sideways and brush them with…

Soapy Sweeties

I got into soap making a couple of weeks ago and can’t seem to stop now. My day is not complete without a batch of soap. Now all I need is more dirty hands in the house or we will soon drown in soap.

Raw Chocolate

Chocolate is healthy and extremely good for you. That’s the news I’ve longed to hear all my life. Cocoa has 10 times more antioxidants than blueberries and tons of feel good ingredients, so it’s no myth that eating chocolate makes you feel good. The trick is to prepare it raw, that means without heating it…

Stuffed Peppers

I like stuffing, clearly, but you can rarely go wrong with stuffing so here is another one. Peppers are easy to stuff as they don’t need all that hollowing-out-work. Simply fill and bake. I filled these bad boys with fennel and goats cheese. You can also try the lentil filling that I used for stuffed…

Ruby Red Borscht Soup

Borscht is a fantastic winter soup. Just looking at those radiant colours of the ingredients make me feel like I’m pumped with iron and other veggie goodness. The ingredients cost next to nothing and the soup is absolutely delicious. Again, this is a vegetarian version of the recipe, but you can add sausages (I’d use…

Stuffed Squash

I found these cute little squashes from our local green grocers and just had to do something with them. Stuffing is always a good idea and this recipe is perfect for the Halloween season. This is a veggie version to suit my vegetarian man, but feel free to add bacon or substitute the lentils with minced…

Almond Milk Berry Shake

Drinking lots of milk in the morning gives me tummy ache, so I’ve been trying alternatives like soy milk, which I quite like although it takes a little getting used to. However, soy milk is often sweetened and there seems to be a bit of controversy over its health benefits as it apparently raises estrogen…

Nutty Green Curry

I believe you can never go wrong with Thai food. It’s just beautiful, fragrant, tasty, light and filling all at the same time. This is a veggie version of the good old chicken green curry, where I substituted chicken with nuts. The secret to a good home made green curry is in finding really good…

Toms & Tortellini

Tomatoes were the most successful thing that my Gardening Experiment produced. Over the weekend I got rid of the plants for the winter and harvested the remaining fruit. That means I have plenty of tomatoes, so it was time to do something with them and quickly. I usually make this sauce with tinned tomatoes, but…
