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


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!

Spicy vegetarian burger

Spicy Mushroom Burgers

I used to be a big  meat eater, but recently, having started Cornell’s whole food plant based nutrition course, I’ve  decided to cut back on my meat and to choose more veggie dishes. I have to say though, amazingly, that  I actually prefer these burgers to the standard beef burgers. These healthy vegetarian burgers are spectacular!!!  – give them a go – if you are a vegetarian you will love them, and if you’re not a vegetarian you will be very pleasantly surprised!!
