Healthy Nasi goreng

Healthy Lentil ‘Nasi Goreng’

As the actually translation of Nasi Goreng means “fried rice’ and no rice has come close to this dish, calling it Nasi Goreng is technically incorrect. However, as I’m technically challenged and I’m using the same delicious spicy sauce that you use in a Nasi Goreng I will continue with  the name regardless!! This version is hands down WAY healthier than the traditional Indonesian dish but retains all the delicious Asian flavours!  Read More


Pomegranate and Olive salad

Mediterranean Salad

This is a pleasant change from the traditional Greek salad. The mix of fresh pomegranate seeds with the olives are to die for!!! Add a few tablespoons of cooked quinoa to the dish and make it a beautiful light summer supper, or serve it up with a little grilled protein (shrimps with garlic, lemon and mint spring to mind!!!)

Scallop and halloumi

Quinoa Coated Scallops Topped With Grilled Halloumi With A Caper & Raisin Dressing

This is a dish that Gordon Ramsey made, but he used panko to coat the scallops.  I’ve blended some cooked quinoa and coated the scallops in that just to make it a little more halo inducing! Its a delicious and conversation stopping appetizer that really is easy to make. Read More


Thai curry

Wild Caught Cod In A Thai Red Curry Sauce With Grilled Bok Choy

I love Asian food and Thai food especially. The dishes you eat in Thailand are bursting with so many different flavours. Sweet, sour, spicy and salty. And when you have flavours like that, you can mix them up with beautiful fresh vegetables and have yourself a really healthy feast! This Thai curry dish can be made in about 5 minutes (after you’ve made the paste) and is perfect for a gourmet mid week supper!

Tortilla, spicy beans and salsa

Home Made Kale Tortillas With Spicy Beans and an Apple Salsa

Every part of this dish is so easy to prepare and can be made in advance. The best part of it for me is it can be topped with an egg and eaten for breakfast or topped with some grilled chicken (for meat eaters!) and eaten for supper. It’s healthy  and the tastes are SO vibrant and fresh. What are you waiting for?!!
