QUINOA CHIA PORRIDGE WITH MIXED BERRY COMPOTE & ALMONDS

This truly delicious porridge is perfect for a make-ahead breakfast treat; an interesting, healthy, indulgent and different spin on overnight oats, that takes mere minutes to prepare… and is a great way to use up leftover quinoa. It is wonderful served cold, straight from the fridge or, if you prefer, both the compote and the porridge can be warmed […]

SPICY SWEET POTATO BURGERS WITH ZESTY TAHINI SLAW

Looking for a veggie burger with a difference? If you like things a little spicy, this recipe could be just the ticket!

CUCUMBER LIME SODA WITH FRESH MINT

Just 4 ingredients (+ water, of course) and zero sweetener; the perfect way to rehydrate after an active day… especially now that it’s finally starting to warm up a little in Stockholm. My kids love this drink (they are big “bubble water” fans!) and particularly like scooping out and eating the cucumber ribbons once the water […]

ALMOND WALNUT QUINOA-LA WITH FIGS & ORANGE SYRUP

A few years ago, on a whim, I bought a packet of quinoa flakes. With no specific recipe in mind in which to feature them, I ended up using them in a variety of baked goods, in place of oats. The results were surprisingly good and I became interested to experiment further. This quinoa-based granola (which […]

BLUEBERRY MUFFIN BAKED PORRIDGE POTS

A muffin for breakfast with a delicious twist! For a while I have been mentioning my favourite recipes on Instagram, and I am finally playing catch-up and starting to post them, as promised. When I posed the question yesterday, “Which of my baked porridge recipes would you like to see next?”, the winner – by Instagram comment […]

I QUIT SUGAR 8-WEEK PROGRAM, ROUND 3 (Clean Week and beyond in review)

It has now been a few weeks since the last round (my third) of the I Quit Sugar 8-Week Program wrapped up, and although there where similarities between this round and previous ones I have participated in, on a personal note, some new things certainly came to light. As always, the recipes were wonderful and the […]

SWEET POTATO PIE BAKED PORRIDGE POTS (Happy Food Revolution Day, 2015!)

Yes, it’s Food Revolution Day, 2015. And rather than host an activity as I have done in previous years, this year I decided to simply cook with my family, getting the kids involved (they love helping in the kitchen!) and, in the spirit of the day, popping on a couple of Jamie’s Food Tube videos and an […]

DUKKAH CRUSTED SWEET POTATO FRIES & TAHINI DIPPING SAUCE WITH ROASTED GARLIC

This combination of two simple, but utterly delicious sides, is sure to please. Talented Elaine of Foodbod fame is a woman after my own heart. And so, when she asked me what I would feed her, this recipe I created with the intention of sharing around the start of the year (where has 2015 gone?) sprang […]

PEANUT BUTTER, BANANA & CHOCOLATE CHIP WAFFLES (vegan, gluten-free, IQS-friendly)

For Cupcake’s 2nd birthday party “waffle bar”, I created a banoffee waffle recipe and, in the process, discovered the perfect way to use up that odd soon-to-be-overripe sad, lone banana sitting oft to be found on the kitchen countertop. I have yet to share that recipe (which is one of my all-time favourites!), but on the 25th of […]
