Christmas Nut Roast

For the first time ever I will be away for Christmas this year. Off to warmer climes, to soak up some sunshine and experience new cultures. So excited!

Roasts are such yummy winter meals! A [...]

Buckwheat Miso Porridge with Wild Mushrooms

Savoury porridge?!? Hell yeah! It's delicious for breakfast or lunch! Wonderful earthy flavours for utter comfort in a bowl on a cold wintery day. Buckwheat  has a lovely earthy taste and is a beautiful partner for mushrooms! Not related to wheat in any way, buckwheat is a gluten free pseudograin, actually a seed.

Buckwheat and Mushroom Risotto

This is the meal of the moment for me. Buckwheat and Mushroom Risotto, gorgeous and comforting as the days get shorted and the winter sets in.

Baked Sweet Potatoes with Avocado Salsa and Cannellini Bean Hummus

You know those evening when you just want dinner to cook itself... I'm asked all the time about 'what can I eat when I get back from work late'?

It makes me smile and be thankful to be alive here on this beautiful planet. A glut of apples is upon us at this time of year and so I see it fitting to add apples to everything. Juices, savoury dishes and these scrumpti[...]
