FALAFELS

I haven’t had many falafels in my time as they are usually full of onion, garlic and far too many chickpeas for my stomach to handle. When I have, I love the taste and I love the option of a vegetarian lunch to add to the rotation so I tweaked the traditional recipe a little! […]

TABBOULEH

Is there anything more enticing that a big bowl of fresh herbs and crunchy veg? Didn’t think so. One of my summer staples that may not have many ingredients but it sure packs a flavour punch! Team it with my falafels, eat it on its own or add to your favourite wrap. INGREDIENTS 1/3 Cup […]

TZATZIKI

Store bought dips can be difficult to navigate for us with fructose malabsorption so I always opt to make my own. That way I don’t have to miss out and I find this tzatziki recipe far more tasty and fresh anyway! A few great, simple ingredients go a long way. INGREDIENTS 1 Cup of Natural […]

AMSTERDAM

Kicked off the first day in Europe with some serious jet lag and a blaring body-clock alarm, waking me up at 5am. Considering we couldn’t sleep even if we wanted to, we decided to put on our walking shoes and make the most of our short time in Amsterdam. Exploring at that time of day […]

NUT FREE “SATAY” NOODLES

To my fellow allergy adults, have you ever wondered what satay or pad thai might taste like? Yeah same. So I made this sunflower butter “satay” variation and tested it on my allergy free family and friends. The general consensus was that the taste is “very similar” to the real deal… I mean I’m not […]

SONS OF MISCHIEF

A new local favourite of mine! As the name suggests, sons of mischief has a fun menu and atmosphere with a large neon sign quoting “Don’t tell me what to do unless you’re naked” setting a playful tone. I was first introduced to this cafe by attending their bottomless brunch with a group of friends […]

YOU KNOW PHO

I have eaten my fair share of pho. It’s the one dish that I can rely on if I’m eating out and get presented with a nut heavy Asian menu. Whilst it keeps me away from a potential nut allergy, the broth generally contains onion with additional onion slices in the bowl, which is not […]

MOBY

I’d heard good things about this place so I had to check it out for myself. Safe to say I was one happy and very full customer when I left! Moby has three stories and if you can score a table on the rooftop you’ll be there all day. Really nice atmosphere and interesting menu! […]

CHICKEN CACCIATORE WITH MASH

Simple dish that packs a punch! Traditionally chicken cacciatore is made with chicken thighs as the fat content in this cut means it can be slow cooked and remain super tender. As delicious as that sounds I’m far too time poor to be cooking all afternoon so I have come up with a much quicker […]
