Do you have a jar of tahini in your cupboard that you bought to make homemade hummus but you’re left with a jar that’s still 3/4 way full and have no idea what to do with it? I’m here to tell you that you can do so much more with tahini than just as an addition to hummus.
I can’t stop making these pea patties. I’ve been so busy the last few weeks that I’m exhausted by dinner time and I just want to whip up something quick and easy.

White potatoes has such a bad reputation now, along with bread, rice…etc, but I don’t see anything wrong with eating potatoes every now and then as part of a balanced diet.

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.
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.
I feel that parsnips are a neglected root vegetable that we only eat during Christmas time, but not in this household! I love turning parsnips into scrumptious side dishes. One of my favourite things to make with parsnip (if you haven’t already guessed), is parsnip mash! Closely followed by baked parsnip chips
