CHOCOLATE KNICKERBOCKER GLORY WITH NECTARINES & A SESAME WAFER a new plant-based spin on an old tradition

We’re welcoming the warmer weather here in Sweden with this somewhat healthier spin on an old-fashioned British treat. If you’re not from the UK or familiar with the term Knickerbocker Glory, you’ll no doubt be curious as to what kind of concoction it is. Supposedly invented somewhere down by the English seashore in the 1930s, […]

GRILLED NECTARINE & AVOCADO PIZZETTAS (and some reflections on anxiety)

As summer creeps back in (thank you, Sweden*!), it’s time to celebrate with family, friends and perfectly summery festive food! These pizzettas are a take on my popular Nectarine & Avocado Toasties of a couple of years back. Made simply with Mexican pita breads and cashew cheese, they’re a light, simple lunch or wholesome addition to your […]

FAMILY FARM STAY REFLECTIONS FROM BACK 2 EARTH, SHOALHAVEN (+ cashew yogurt breakfast pizza recipe!)

*Post update, June 2017* The Rescued Animal Adoption Program at Back 2 Earth is now live. I am very grateful to have been a small part in its conception and I wish Marc, Jenny and animal rescuers/advocates everywhere the very best. To get to know the animals, donate or get involved head here: https://back2earth.net.au/adopt-an-animal/   After […]

WATERMELON CELEBRATION CAKE (100% fruity fun!)

At this time last year, I was being transferred from the delivery ward to the maternity ward at SÖS. That’s right; Oliver (aka Baby Marzipan) has just turned 1. I could cry. Oh, wait. I already have! 😛 We’re celebrating the big baby milestone in Australia… in 36°C heat (thank you, Adelaide)! And there couldn’t be […]

24 DAYS OF HAPPY, HEALTHY CELEBRATION (cut the stress, get organised & eat deliciously balanced this Christmas)

As I count down to my first Christmas as a mother of 3 in a brand new home that’s barely 1/3 in order, I am simultaneously overjoyed at how blessed I am and, frankly, a little overwhelmed by the sheer enormity of keeping 3 little ones (and myself) in festive mode throughout the month of December. […]

CHOC-MINT MATCHA CRUNCH BARS (with novelty Winterfell wrapper printable)

With literally minutes left to celebrate Halloween here in Sweden, I thought I’d take the opportunity to share one of the most requested recipes I’ve shown previews of on Instagram. Many people mistakenly thought I had purchased a “Winterfell chocolate bar” when I first shared it during #foodofthrones2016, which of course I was rather chuffed […]

CREAMY VEGAN MUSHROOM PASTA (& happy belated Food Revolution Day 2016)

In celebration of Food Revolution Day 2016, I decided to revisit my favourite plant-based mushroom pasta. Topped with extra portobello mushroom slices and the most delicious herbed zesty bread crumbs, this is one creamy pasta dish that does not miss the usual dairy suspects. A few months back, inspired by the mushroom fettuccine at Jamie’s Italian (my go-to dish […]

COCONUT CREAM FRUSHI (wholesome sweet “sushi” with fresh fruit)

I know it’s unusual and certainly far from traditional, but trust me, this frushi (or “fruit sushi”) really tastes delish! And I’m not usually a fan of “deceptive” foods (that is to say, something that looks like something it’s not), but in the case of frushi, I believe I can allow myself to be somewhat playful. If […]

BEETROOT GNOCCHI (with sage, walnut & browned butter sauce)

If you have been following my blog for a while you’ll know that, other than creating recipes of a veggie nature, I have had “a thing” for organic produce. In fact, it was organic food that was my first foodie passion, long before I even embraced going vegetarian again (and long before organic food was as accessible as […]

CARVED & STUFFED BAKED BELL PEPPERS (a healthy Halloween treat!)

As has been our family tradition for the past few years, this Halloween saw carved and stuffed bell peppers on the menu. Wanting to update them somewhat, I came up with this recipe, loosely based on the first one that we ever used. The kids have been dressing up for days. We’ve seen variations of […]
