food to glow

feel good food that's good for you

A hearty and rich cold weather comfort blanket of a recipe, with red wine, herbs, beans and wild mushrooms. Like any stew this vegan bean bourguignon gets better after a couple of days of flavour mingling, so make enough for leftovers.

Like any stew this vegan bean bourguignon gets better after a couple of days of flavour mingling, so make enough for leftovers. I’m feeling a bit sheepish. This is the longest I have gone without writing …

  I love Christmas dinner as much as anyone. After all, I pretty much get to make the menu, cook it and serve it.

Turmeric, black pepper and healthy fats are best friends when it comes to nutrient bioavailability to the body. You may already use this almost magical combination in something like my Spiced Golden Turmeric Milk, but here it is used with naturally gluten-free chickpea flour (besan/gram) to make crisp-edged filling farinata (savory pancakes). Top with whatever you fancy, but we like this combination with smoked salmon and raw veggies. It gets an extra fillip of tang and nutrition from the turmeric and lemon dressing. Vegetarians and vegans, sub out the salmon for avocado. Breakfast, brunch, lunch or a light supper - farinatas are always welcome.

The key to this slurpy Vietnamese-ish vegetable curry is the homemade spice blend that actually hails from the other side of the Indian Ocean - Sri Lanka. With 10 vegetables, a mild spice mix and coconut milk this is a perfect all-season curry for the whole family.

Besides the usual staples of olive oil, pasta, oats and, um, avocados there are a few things I always have in my kitchen: coconut milk powder, onions, limes and a restaurant’s worth of spices. I don’t use these every day of course, but it is comforting to know that they are there, ready to inspire me …

Those of us who love falafels probably have a distinct memory of our most favourite one. Or maybe that …

  Falafels as waffles is a thing. This is because anything as waffles is a thing. People are waffling grilled cheese (standard), mac and cheese, tamales, frittatas, hash browns, polenta, crab cakes – you get the idea. However, if you are craving something healthy, lightly spiced, not too carby, but still very much waffle-shaped, grab your waffle iron, open that …
