Spicy Mango Ceviche

I love ceviche. When it’s summery and warm out, I like to make this Peruvian side dish/appetizer on special occasions like parties, picnics or BBQs with friends and family. These past few years, we’ve tended to make my boyfriend, Sid’s version, which appears in the Powerfood - The Party Edition cookbook. But now... Read more

Caesar Salad With Cashew Dressing

This week I launched my delicious cashew butter on the Market (proud!), so I’ve been experimenting with the spread over the past few days. This plant-based, fresh and creamy Caesar dressing is to die for and is definitely worth a try! How do I make croutons?
 Preheat the oven to 180°C/350 F. Chop four... Read more

Jackfruit Tacos (Vegan Pulled Pork)

I’ve been eating ripe jackfruit (aka Katahar, nangka) for as long as I’ve been going to the Côte d’Ivoire. It’s fresh tasting with a nice, light sweetness. I’ve also come across the ‘green’ version in (mostly vegan) restaurants where it tends to be served as an alternative to ‘pulled pork’. Always... Read more

Soba Noodles with Broccolini and Tempeh

I thought it might be time for a tasty, comfort-food recipe. And maybe one that’s a little sweeter than usual because sweetness is something we can all really use right now in this bizarre time. But it’s also super nutritious! Broccolini (a cross between broccoli and the Chinese cabbage variety, gai lan) adds some... Read more

Lentil Stew

My favorite time to make soups and stews is on the weekend. There isn’t much prep required and you can endlessly vary the vegetables, herbs, spices and legumes you use. In no time at all, you’ll have a hearty, delicious and healthy meal on the table. I often have people over to eat on Saturdays and Sundays, and... Read more

Black Bean Brownies

I once tried a black bean brownie in New York and enjoyed it so much that I started experimenting with recipes myself. My version is quite light, but the medjool dates give it sweetness and make it nice and chewy. I hope you enjoy these brownies as much as I do! Happy... Read more
