Scrumptious Stuffed Omelette

This easy to make fluffy and filling omelette is great for breakfast or brunch. This recipe is ideal if you want to cut down on carbs as it is quite filling on its own and you can skip on eating bread along with it. I made this after church on Sunday for brunch and my son ‘inhaled’ his meal with a glass of milk. I had mine at a more sedate and civilised pace with a lovely cup of tea. Filled with red onions, green peppers and any left-over meat or sausages adds amazing flavour to this dish. You can … Continue reading Scrumptious Stuffed Omelette

Tropical Smoothie Bowl

This smoothie bowl is refreshing and will brighten your day. It is a wonderful combination of fruits, is simple to make and so tasty. I used mango, pineapple and papaya. The combination of the mango and pineapple is absolutely amazing, giving that fresh fruity flavour. Papaya is rich in vitamin C and antioxidants and full of fibre, it boosts your immunity and is great for the skin. You can either buy them separately and cube and freeze them for later use or buy the pre-cut and packaged variety from the freezer section in your grocery store. I also added ½ … Continue reading Tropical Smoothie Bowl

Healthy Almond and Date Snack Balls

These healthy bites are quick to assemble, rich in protein and made with all-natural ingredients. They are great when you feel peckish between meals and are such a healthy alternative to grabbing a cookie. Dates like I always say are natures candy and add that natural sweetness to these along with a little honey. Peanut butter adds flavour, healthy fats and helps to get the stickiness to shape them into balls. I have described two ways of making this snack. The first one has desiccated coconut along with the coconut flour and cocoa and more of peanut butter. To compensate, … Continue reading Healthy Almond and Date Snack Balls

Quick and Easy Turmeric Rice

My son is not a big fan of rice and frowns if I say there is rice for dinner but he does NOT complain when I make this. This rice is quick to make and is an amazing accompaniment with a variety of dishes. It pairs well with Indian or Mediterranean dishes. This turmeric rice is my go-to on a weeknight especially. It is not only delicious but so easy to put together. The chicken stock adds a lovely flavour but you can use vegetable stock if that is your preference. I used Basmati rice, as we like the flavour … Continue reading Quick and Easy Turmeric Rice

Strawberry Banana Date Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie bowls are a great healthy option for breakfast. They are easy to make and so yum. You do not want your smoothie bowl to be too thin in consistency. The frozen strawberries and bananas give a thick and creamy texture. The dates add a hint of sweetness, they were soaked in hot water for about 5 mins to soften them up and that way they blend easily. The rolled oats add thickness and help you stay fuller for longer. Strawberries are healthy and rich in vitamin C, potassium, folic acid and fibre. Chia seeds are high in vitamins, nutrients, … Continue reading Strawberry Banana Date Smoothie Bowl

Avocado and Coriander Spread/Dip

This quick and fresh recipe is so easy to put together and makes for a great dip or spread. I love having this on Toast or with Quesadillas or tacos. This definitely is a relative of guacamole. Avocados are so good for us, rich in vitamins and minerals and full of the good fats. Jalapenos add the required heat, the avocados and sour cream give the dish its lovely creaminess. You can opt for Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. The coriander adds amazing flavour and freshness along with the lemon. The pistachios add a lovely flavour and you can … Continue reading Avocado and Coriander Spread/Dip

Pear and Pecan Loaf

This loaf is easy to make and so tasty. This is a yummy way to use up any extra pears you have at home. The Pear and Pecan complement each other so well. It is great as a brunch or breakfast bread. The cinnamon and nutmeg take the flavours to another level. I chopped the pear into small pieces, but you can choose to grate instead. The Pecans are roughly chopped as I like to bite into bits of pecan. This does freeze really well. And can also be made into muffins. Ingredients Vegetable oil – ½ cup Caster Sugar … Continue reading Pear and Pecan Loaf

Healthy Pear Spinach Smoothie

This is another one of my healthy smoothies. It is packed with fruits, greens and milk that provide vitamins, Iron and calcium which makes this an ideal breakfast for those who don’t have time for a sit-down breakfast. Can also be had after your workout. Any milk of your choice can be added. I use regular low-fat milk as I like the taste and it also contains a decent amount of protein and calcium. I have also made this with Almond milk. Almond milk is lower in carbohydrates than regular milk but it does not naturally contain calcium, so if … Continue reading Healthy Pear Spinach Smoothie

Homemade Woodfired Pizzas

Nothing can beat a well-made woodfired pizza, and being able to make one at home is just so satisfying. I have used this recipe and made pizzas in a regular oven prior to having a woodfired oven. It still comes out great but obviously will not have that woodfired flavour. My husband was obsessed with having a woodfired oven, we finally got one in December last year. After a few tries to hone our woodfired pizza skills, we braved making it for guests. Every year in late December or early January we invite a few neighbours and have a neighbourhood … Continue reading Homemade Woodfired Pizzas

Decadent Chocolate Coconut Slice

School is on a 2-week term break here down under in Australia. So besides having a permanently hungry teenager at home, I also have to make sure his friends are fed when they come around. Whenever I make this, his friends descend on it and it disappears so quickly, I had to pretend that it was not ready yet so I could get some pictures for this post. This recipe is quick and easy to whip up using ingredients already in the pantry and tastes delicious. All ingredients are mixed together in 1 bowl, how easy is that! This sweet … Continue reading Decadent Chocolate Coconut Slice
