Seed bread

Gluten free, dairy free, vegan. Nice alternative loaf if you are avoiding gluten and you like seeds.


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.


Fish soup

Fish soup for 4 people. Leeks are really lovely together with salmon.
You can replace the salmon with other fish.


Chicken, sweet potato & coconut curry

This is enough for dinner for 3-4 people, is quick to prepare and looks after itself in the oven.
Serve it with basmati rice or noodles of your choice. The red split lentils go mushy and make for a thicker, creamier sauce.
