Fast Layered Tomatoed Cheese Burgers


This was tonight’s dinner. I was a little worried about what I was going to make, but I wanted to serve something mouthwatering, but not have to spend too long over the stove. I didn’t want any compromising – I wanted lots of insane colours for inspiration, and to act as an appetizing kind of aphrodisiac – a feast on a plate, again without hours of preparation.  So this is what I came up with […]

Cheezy Leek & Roasted Cashew Quiche


This is no normal quiche – the roasted nut aspect was inspired by a quiche I had many years ago whilst I was studying holistic medicine in college.  The food served in-house was vegetarian – and delectable.  This piece of work is a quiche filled with promising, extra delicious flavours for you to indulge in – they are all pretty healthy too, and of course they are vegan !  Ideal for picnics, but maybe not […]

Beaming Sunshine Golden Rice Ball


The idea of something big to share with family and friends, as a treat, came to me a few days ago when, I was yearning for some sun to hit my courtyard.  And as I looked up at the grey sky, I knew that that wasn’t about to happen outside anytime soon, and that I couldn’t do anything about it.  But then I thought again – “I will bring the sun, and shine it on […]

Cream of Coconut & Broccoli Soup


I have developed a temporary fixation with coconut over the last 3 days – I love the flavour with a passion.  Anyway, dinner dawned faster than I thought, and as luck had it, the combination of ingredients that made up this soup were far further in the yummy zone than I had expected.  I would probably go as far as to say that this is my favourite broccoli soup ever.  And super fast to make.  […]

Polenta Garden Pizza to Live For


This is a super pizza and it is quite simply delicious.  The picture above is taken before it enters the hot oven, and before it is smothered with melting vegan cheese  (choose your own brand).  The base is made in part with cornmeal, smeared with a spreading of freshly-made pesto, and topped with freshly cut tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, root garlic (normal will do), chilli olives and extra virgin olive oil – glorious !!!  A winner […]

Sweet Sunrise Burgers


Full of flavour and extra delicious, these golden pieces are a bomb of a treat and kids love them too.  I have been making these for the last few years, and have been meaning to pass them on for you to share and enjoy.  This recipe came to me one day when I had way too much corn in my pantry, and too many sundried tomatoes in the fridge.  The other ingredients came along like […]

Lemon Zesty Cauliflower with Garlic Basil


Simple, fast, and delicious. That is the second name for this wonderfully easy-to-make side dish.  My mother used to make cauliflower, and drizzle olive oil and lemon on it – we used to love it. And sometimes she would slightly fry the cauliflower, which would create the most delightful of tastes.  This is healthy and full of nutrients, particularly in the raw lemon, basil and garlic.  Now, if you don’t have time to make a […]

Parsley & Basil Pecan Pesto


Here lies a very unique, yet gentle pesto that begs to be tasted, and, when all is said and done, you may wish to include this in your monthly eats, as it is a beautifully easy and delicious recipe that is quick to prepare. I don’t know about you, but I love the concept of pesto.  I love its semi-rawness mixed with whole-wheat pasta.  It’s filling, yet easy on the palette at the same time, […]

Raw Rainbow Salad


I love fruit, and am passionate about strawberries. I love colours with a vengeance, I am an artist – I love design and working on a clean canvas is how I begin with every recipe.   First my appetite initiates me.  Then, in my mind’s eye, I see it and somehow taste it.  Then I lose myself in preparing and creating my dishes.  So here I worked with contrasting colours – red and green – and […]
