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.

Healthy Peanut Butter Cookies (Dairy-free, Gluten-free)

I’ve been on a massive peanut butter kick the last few days when usually I’m more of a Tahini girl. I go through these phases where I crave a specific food and want to eat it everyday and right now, peanut butter is that food! I’ve been eating it straight out of the jar with a spoon.

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!

I must admit I’m not the biggest fan of fruit pies, or cooked fruit desserts. I prefer eating my fruit raw and cold; however, rhubarb is one of those fruit (a vegetable, actually!) that you can’t eat any other way apart from cooked…so I thought why not give it a try. It’s so deliciously tart and not too sweet. In fact, I only used 2 tbsp sweetener in the filling and it was just right! Traditional recipes use anywhere between ½ and 1 cup of sugar for the filling alone!

Healthy Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie

Nadia Bakes, gluten free, main meals, Vegetarian 4 Comments

Traditional Shepard’s pie can often be on the fatty, starchy side what with all the meat, thick layer of potato mash mixed with generous amounts of butter and cheese. This healthy vegetarian Shepherd’s pie is much lighter and full of vegetables and pulses packed with nutrients and mineral, and the best thing about it is that it tastes just as delicious and satisfying as the traditional!
