My Legendary ‘No-Lamb’ Middle Eastern-Style Bake . . . A Flavour Bomb !


I am in a ‘bake’ super zone presently – every cell of my body tells me to create bakes, to fuse, to go with my creative instinct – which I have to say is working overtime – and I can barely keep up with it. Now, I have created a most wondrous bake – after tasting it, I was lost for words !  I merged the flavours of the Middle east with a touch of […]

Best Ever Vegan Full English Breakfast


My father ran his own restaurant for decades – if you were to survive in London’s West End, competing with fierce outlets that were fighting for the ‘same piece of bacon’, so to speak, then you had to prove your own ‘bacon’ (pardon the terminology, no pun intended). I saw those early morning breakfasts being dished out, and my father sweating over the high temperature cookers – but he made a mean bean breakfast – […]

Roti Wrapped Smoked Bean Feast


This is an excellent recipe that I created, which has brought a huge smile to my face, because my young discerning daughter is the best barometer I have in the short term when I have just created something new, and my partner is even more discerning.  They both gave it a resounding thumbs up !  And I also know I have high standards to meet when I think of you all out there. As you […]

Diner-Style ‘Meat’ Loaf


This ‘meat’ loaf is gorgeous, mainly because it’s a quick recipe to prepare, and also because it yields a delicious flavour & texture.  It can be made any day of the week, and served with your favourite potatoes, mashes – roasted or fried – with steamed vegetables of your choice, or even your favourite salad.  It’s an impressive piece of work that just won’t disappoint !  This also slices wonderfully the following day – cut […]

Zucchini Spaghetti with a Rich Raw Tomato Sauce

INGREDIENTS 2 cloves garlic 10 zenguli tomatoes, roughly cut or whole 1 Tbsp olive oil Himalayan […]

My Exotic Tabbouleh (Tabbouli)


I make my own version of Tabbouleh and I love it – it’s fresh, versatile and one handsome salad.  Loved and enjoyed by millions of people worldwide, this is a wonderful treat any time of the year – serve with hot pitta bread and my hummus or better still my Smoked Red Pepper & Garlic Bean Dip Enjoy ! Note:-  For a gluten-free tabbouleh use boiled millet with quinoa – follow cooking instructions for […]

Red Nectar Juice


This juice is packed with nutrients and goodness. The health benefits are endless. All peppers are rich in vitamins A, C and K, but red peppers are simply bursting with them, and are far more nutritious than green peppers. Antioxidant vitamins A and C help to prevent cell damage, cancer, and diseases related to aging, and they support immune function. They also protect against cataracts and heart disease, and reduce inflammation like that found in arthritis and asthma. […]

Epic Sweet Potato Lasagne


I wanted to make a pasta-free lasagne – so I decided to create a sweet potato one.  It melted in our mouths, and it was one of the most mouthwatering baked dishes ever.  An epic dish to serve to friends and family.  It’s so decorative, and combines the idea of roast potatoes with a wonderful sauce, red Bolognese and a cheese sauce that really is very cheezy !  Serve with garlic bread and a crunchy […]
