Black Bean Avocado & Mango Tacos I’ve always found avocado and mango to be such an excellent combination.

Chickpea Cookie Dough Truffles I’m a huge fan of the idea of adding beans, lentils and pulses into sweet treats.

Beans & pulses are so underrated and …

salmon with mango and pomegranate salsa

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’m always making quinoa, but I rarely make it plain. I always add things like beans, nuts and lot of vegetables. It’s so easy and quick to make so it’s perfect for when you’re in a hurry and need something quick. I like to make a huge batch and store it in the fridge to have for lunch throughout the week. It makes an amazing lunch on the go – better than your average sandwich and definitely much healthier, and more interesting (in my opinion!).
