Radish and Herb Butter

Continuing to use up my glut of radishes, I made this simple herb and radish butter. The flavours are really subtle so can be used as an alternative to your everyday spread.

Pickled Radish

With an abundance of radish from the garden, I decided to make them last as long as possible by pickling them. If you leave radish too long in the ground, they can go a bit too spicy so this recipe is perfect for preserving their delicate taste.

Roasted Sardine, Tomato and Basil dip

I know sardines aren’t the most popular but as part of the SMASH (Sardines, Mackerel, Anchovies, Salmon, Herrings) oily fish family, they are a fantastic source of omega 3 essential fats which are essential for optimum health. This dish tastes deliciously of basil and tomatoes with just a subtle hint of fish and is perfect with corn chips, crackers or crudites.

Sweet Potato Rosti

I love these sweet potato rostis for breakfast but they are so versatile they could be a dinner, a side dish, a snack…

I adapted the recipe from Dale Pinnock’s ‘The Power of Three’ recipe book, I always recommend his books in clinics as his recipes are simple, easy, healthy and don’t require any unusual ingredients you can’t get from a regular supermarket.

I used chia in place of egg and also added zaatar for some extra flavour. You can try a variety of different flavours though, any herbs or spices of your choice.

Lemon, Sesame and Tahini Dressing

This dressing is really quick and easy to whip up and doesn’t require ingredients which are hard to come by. Delicious served with meat, fish or over roasted vegetables.

Fruit and Chia Seed Jam

This is such a quick and easy way to make jam which doesn’t require a whole tonne of sugar! Use any fruit of your preference, I find it a great way to use up fruit which is ‘on the turn’. The chia seeds are what gives it the jam consistency and if the fruit is ripe, you won’t need to add sweetener. if it is a little on the tart side, then a drizzle of honey or maple syrup is fine! Delicious on toast, stirred into porridge or as a topping on puddings.

Grilled Avocado with herbs and spices

Easy, quick and nourishing snack or side dish. Choose from either the herbs as a seasoning, or the spices, or separate the avocado slices and have both!
