You can also grate the beetroot coarsely rather than slicing if you prefer.


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.


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.



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.
