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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

PUMPKIN & CHICKPEA DIP

Usually my choice of dip would be hummus or tzatziki but now this pumpkin dip is completely the trio. It literally taste good with anything! I serve it with veggie sticks and crackers mostly but if you’re feeling adventurous try it on toast with a bit of crumbled feta… ah-mazing. INGREDIENTS 1/2 a butternut pumpkin […]

OLIVE TAPENADE

Aaaand another sign of my olive obsession emerges. Wanted to try something different to add to the antipasto platter rotation so I came up with this super quick recipe. This tapenade is the perfect combination of salty and tangy, you will want to lather it on everything! INGREDIENTS 1 Cup of pitted kalamata olives 1 […]

NUT-FREE BASIL PESTO

Traditional pesto is one of those things that I know I would really enjoy but it always has some form of nuts in it. Every time I have accidentally eaten it, I’ve almost felt the reaction was worth it! (not really). Anyway I had a play around with nut-free alternative for you guys and I […]

GUACAMOLE WITH VEGGIE STICKS

There is something very “palm springs in the 70’s” about the way I have presented this dish but I kind of like it. Still yet to meet anyone who isn’t a fan of the humble avocado so why not try out my version of guac next time you’re entertaining? INGREDIENTS 3 x Ripe avocados 1 […]

GO-TO GREEK SALAD

It’s no secret that the greek salad trumps every other salad for me. I have always been obsessed with olives… if they are in my sight, they’ll be finished in seconds! This said, any excuse to add them to my food and I’ll take it. My version of this fresh, crunchy, Mediterranean salad is a […]

MINI QUICHE

Over the years I have made so many variations of these little quiche. As long as you have the base right you can add pretty much any extras you like! This particular recipe was one I made for my 25th birthday where some of my friends were vegetarians so I chose to keep it very […]
