I’ve been eating quite a lot of tofu and I’m really enjoying experimenting with it at the moment. Since I’ve decided to start cutting back on my meat consumption and to stop cooking it at home, tofu has become a life saver! It’s an amazing vegetarian/vegan source of protein and it’s quite easy to cook once you know what you’re doing.

Lemon & Parsley Cannellini Freekeh Recipe

Freekeh is a green wheat popular in Middle Eastern cuisine that’s harvested when the grain is still young. Unlike the ‘adult’ version of the wheat, Freekeh contains more protein, minerals and fibre. It contains three times as much fibre as brown rice. Why does this make it special? Well a high fibre content means it’s digested slowly and has a low GI number. A low GI means it doesn’t cause the blood sugar to spike the way rice would. It also means it will make you feel fuller so you don’t end up overeating.

The sun decided to come out today (yay!) so it’s the perfect opportunity to share this simple watermelon cucumber and mint salad. To me, those three ingredients define summer, especially watermelon! When combined, they make the perfect side salad or snack.

I once ordered a salmon dish when having a catch up with a friend and it was served with a mango salsa. I thought it was so delicious and the flavoures complemented each other so well. I thought the mango was quite a nice alternative to add to salsa. I decided I would soon recreate the dish, this was two years ago! I recently remembered it and suddenly had a strong urge to make it!

I know I’m not alone when I say this – I’m obsessed with avocados! Another thing that I love is bruschetta – the crispy bread it’s served on, the flavours and the simplicity of the idea! I’ve made simple tomato and basil bruschetta many times, then one day it occurred to me, why not add avocado? It made perfect sense.
