Chilli beans on toast – breakfast favourite

What will this recipe make?

This ticks all the boxes and is one of my favourites. Vegan, plenty of protein and good fats, both of which we need with every meal of the day. I love the flavours and make sure to add plenty of grated lime peel.

Whose recipe is this?

1 tbsp. olive oil
½ tin of canellini beans, drained and rinsed
1 small clove of garlic, minced
1 tsp. harissa
Grated peel of ½ lime
3 tbsp. coconut yoghurt
1 slice wholemeal sourdough bread or glutenfree bread, lightly toasted
1 tbsp. parsley, chopped
Black pepper

Heat the olive oil in a pan and sauté the butter beans with the garlic for a few minutes. Mix in the harissa; then add the grated lime and yoghurt and heat for a minute.
Pile the mixture onto the toast and top it with parsley and black pepper.

Summer tomato tart

If you’ve been growing your own tomatoes in the garden and you suddenly have an abundance, or you’ve picked them up from the farmers’ market when tomatoes are at their peak, this is the recipe for you! This is a favourite recipe and makes a meal when served with a mixed green salad and an Italian inspired olive oil-vinegar dressing.


Chocolate Mousse Perfection

Chocolate and coconut together is just heaven. And the consistency of this mousse is simply perfect once it has set. You can choose to sprinke with chopped chocolate, toasted coconut flakes or a few berries but it’s also great just as it is.
The recipe is for 4 portions.


Caramelised Onion Sauce

Onions are a great prebiotic source and when they’ve been gently heated for quite a while, like in this recipe, they are very easy to digest. I use this sauce in stead of tomato sauce on pizza among other things. It’s a great alternative for those who can’t tolerate tomatoes and lectins. But it’s just as great with meats, cheese, sausages, or even just a piece of crispy bread with goat cheese.

Kombucha is a fermented tea drink, served cold. Due to the fermentation it is a prebiotic drink, slightly vinegary and you can experiment with adding flavours once you master the basic kombucha. Great in a fancy glass with dinner.
