Cauliflower and Broccoli Pizza

Looking for ways to get your kids to eat more veggies? Try this Cauliflower and Broccoli Pizza and let them build their own pizzas.

Over the last few months I have been trying to cut out gluten and bread from my diet, which is hard when you love pizza so much. I usually use our cauliflower pizza base but I decided to change the recipe slightly and add broccoli so I can increase my vegetable intake.

Layered Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing and Caramel Walnuts

Layered cakes are my new thing. Before making one I was under the impression that it was too much effort, how I was so wrong!  They are impressive looking once iced and decorated, and make them ever more extravagent by adding on more layers. Carrot Cake is one of my childhood favorite recipes - hints of cinnamon and nutmeg, the carrot helps to keep the cake moist and cream cheese icing is decadent and rich.

Blackberry Swirl Cheesecake

Today is our blogs 3rd Birthday! 3 whole years since we started on this crazy journey of sharing recipes with you!  We did not start our blog with any intention of being where we are today - meeting all of the amazing and incredible people we have, working with brands we have been fans of for years, signing a book deal with the biggest publishing house in the world (still blows our mind), getting to travel to dream destinations or running our own cooking workshops and have people turn up! None of that ever crossed our minds but we are so happy it has and feel greatful every single day to be able to do what we do! So thank you for coming along on this ride with us.

Mixed Berry and Millet Muffins

Muffins can be savory or sweet and I have to say I prefer the latter.  After switching to a (mostly) gluten free diet these are a snack I am not able to enjoy all too often unless I make my own at home.  A mixture of almond meal and millet flour has been used as the base for these delightful morsels.  Millet is a small seeded grass that is naturally gluten free and millet flour is made by stone milling the hulled millet.  That's it, no further processing.  High in protein and fiber, and high in B vitamins, magnesium and potassium, millet it is a welcome change from refined white flour.

Quinoa Porridge

Creamy warm porridge during Winter is the ultimate breakfast comfort food and a fantastic way to start the morning off.  Traditionally porridge is made with oats but after spotting quinoa flakes I decided to try them out.  Quinoa flakes are a gluten free grain that cook very quickly.  Being a complete protein they are superior to oats when it comes to nutritional value and 100 grams of the flakes contain over 14 gams of protein.

Vegetarian Burgers

These vegetarian burgers are guaranteed to satisfy the most committed carnivores. They are full of flavour, high in protein and are so satisfying. Fill the burgers up with toppings of your choice. I find that the beetroot spread adds a sweet flavour and gives them a vibrant colour . Any leftover patties make the perfect sandwich or wrap for the next day.

Courgette Fritters

Courgettes are one of my favorite vegetables and I am always trying to find new ways to eat them. This recipe is so tasty, especially with a dollop of sour cream on the side.  These are an easy vegetarian and gluten free meal.  If you do enjoy spicy food I would recommend adding more chill for an extra bite of flavour.  I made these for dinner but they would be a great lunch idea served with a salad or can even  be eaten at breakfast time served with a poached egg.

Basil Pesto

When hosting a dinner party I can take some time to cook so always make sure there are snacks for guests.  One thing I love to make is home made basil pesto - it goes well with crackers, cut up raw vegetables and corn chips.  This basil pesto is gluten free, dairy free and vegan so suits most people (sorry, it does contain nuts).

French Bean Salad

My best friends Mum made this dish one night when I had dinner with her and it is something I have re created several times since as it is so delicious!  The combination of mustard, vinegar and capers is beautiful - a little bit tangy, sour and the crunch of the beans is a lovely texture.  I would say that this dish is best used as a side dish and not a main.  The perfect accompaniment to a BBQ meal, Sunday Roast or with some vegetable protein. This recipe is taken from a  Jamie Oliver cook book so a big thank you to him.

Cinnamon Banana Pancakes

Initially I wanted to make these pancakes flour less so experimented with a few ingredient combinations which all tasted delicious, however, the pancake mixture did not stick well so I often ended up with a mess in the pan.  For my 4th try at getting these right I thought I would add in some coconut flour to see if that would help - perfection! What I love about coconut flour is that it is gluten free, grain free, high in fibre and healthy fats.

Peanut Butter and Cacao Brownie

Chocolate and peanut butter are two foods that taste incredible when combined.  These decadent, chewy peanut butter and cacao brownies are the perfect guilt free comfort food. The peanut butter makes the brownie creamy and rich and the cacao nibs gives it a crunchy texture. This is such a simple recipe to follow and can be easily adapted by adding nuts, shredded coconut, dried fruit and white chocolate bits. I served my brownies with plain yogurt and they also taste great eaten on their own, they are moist so do not worry if you do not have yoghurt.

This chocolate hazelnut spread is so easy to make and tastes surprisingly similar to Nutella, except it contains no nasty additives. After trying this recipe you will never want to buy a pre made jar again. Serve this delicious spread over bread, oats, cakes, ice-cream, fruit or even eat straight with a spoon.  It is sweet and creamy with a burst of rich chocolate and hazelnut flavour.

This recipe is dairy free, gluten free, soy and refined sugar free.
