Simple Hummus Recipe

Hummus is something that I eat every single day without fail! I eat it on the side of main meals with salads and cooked vegetables, and it’s also one of my go-to snacks. I like to have some peeled chopped carrots in the fridge so when I’m feeling peckish, all I have to do is open the fridge, take out the hummus and carrots and devour! I also like to have it with rice cakes when I run out of carrot sticks and I’m too lazy to peel more!

These fries will change your life! Well not really, but if you’re trying to be healthier but still want to enjoy chips or ‘fries’ from time to time (or everyday!) then this might just make your life a little bit brighter.

As some of you already know, I like keeping my recipes simple. To make this gluten free vegetarian spaghetti I’m making a simple tomato sauce using canned tomatoes and tomato puree and flavouring it with garlic, basil, chilli flakes and lemon jucie. I’m adding peas for some extra colour and texture but feel free to use minced meat or prawns for some protein.

Banana ice-cream is probably one of my favourite healthy/clean eating discoveries. The first time I made banana ice-cream (AKA nicecream or nana ice-cream) I was blown away by the simplicity, and the results were close to perfect! How can a humble frozen banana equal a creamy, sweet and decadent ice-cream? Nothing added – no sugar, no cream, not salt…NOTHING!

You know sometimes when you come across a recipe and straight away you think “This looks too difficult” and you move on before actually reading the recipe and knowing what goes into it, well for me, homemade gnocchi was one of those recipes! I’d seen a few people making homemade sweet potato gnocchi but I’ve always thought there is no way this is not going to be fiddly! Now I realise how completely wrong I was!

Healthy Smooth Guacamole (Avocado Dip)

Guacamole goes with everything: salads, vegetables, meat, in sandwiches…I make so many different variations all the time depending on what ingredients I have, but mostly how lazy I’m feeling! Usually, I’ll scoop a ripe avocado onto a plate, mash it with a fork, add lots of fresh lemon juice and a sprinkle of pepper and call it ‘Guacamole’. It tastes so good and fresh simply like that, but if you’re having Mexican food (say Fajitas!) then you have to do it properly.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Cranberries and Pecans

I feel that Brussels sprouts are neglected all year round apart from Christmas. I can only find them locally around this time and it makes me sad, because I LOVE BRUSSELS SPROUTS! I realise not everyone shares my passion for the humble sprout and I guess I can understand why. I always used to boil or steam my Brussels sprouts which I must admit did get boring after a while. That’s before I discovered roasting them instead!

Beetroot Feta salad

I think salad can be enjoyed anytime of the year, there is no rule that states you can’t eat salads for winter too! This beetroot feta salad is perfect not only for this time of year, but for any time of the year. You get a little sweetness form the beetroot along with the richness the of the cheese, crunchiness of the walnuts and the fresh, crispiness from the spinach leaves…gorgeous!
