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



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.

Healthy tart

Healthy Caramel & Sesame Tart

This tart is so amazing. It’s delicious and decadent and yet is still so very healthy. This  tart has the nutritious benefits of almonds, cashews, dates and raw cacao. It’s quick and easy to make and it sure hits the spot when you feel that urge to indulge after dinner.

The reason for making this tart was to enter the recipe into a simply sesame recipe challenge. I often look at recipe competitions and challenges but if you have to use their ingredients I often don’t enter as I only like using healthy and nutritious products. When I looked into the simply sesame range I was blown away by how healthy their products were. Non GMO, all natural and gluten free!!

give this recipe a go – it’s easy, takes less than 30 minutes and makes for a great dessert!
