Black bean chocolate brownies - vegan, gluten-free, paleo

I had been hankering for chocolate brownies for a while but had been feeling guilty about all the over-indulging as of late *cough* honey muffins, nutella croffins, ice cream *cough*. So a little while back when we were about to spend a week with my vegan in-laws I thought I would bake a healthy vegan chocolate brownie. Beans are a vegetable so they're practically a salad amiright?!

Lychee and Summer Berry Jellies - vegan, gluten-free, plant-based

This is the ultimate summer dessert. Cool and refreshing. Beautiful to look at and it's  healthy too!

This is one of those ridiculously easy but super impressive looking desserts. What a winner!

It’s so pretty to look at - ruby red raspberries and sapphire blueberries encased in crystal, like little jewels on the plate... it’s almost too pretty to eat. Almost.  


Cauliflower Tabouli with Fennel and Sweet corn

This tabouli/tabbouleh has so much going for it. It's packed with vibrant vegetables. And the flavours are phenomenal. It tastes like summer. Zingy fresh mint, sweet kernels of corn, lemony garlicky dressing, all bound together with nutty cauliflower rice.

It's quite filling on its own for a vegan meal, or add some extra protein with grilled tofu/tempeh or falafel. If you're in the paleo space, this salad is dreamy with grilled seafood (fish, prawns, calamari), chicken or pork chops - dusted with sumac spice and drizzled with olive oil.

Raw Beetroot Salad with Beet Greens and Tumeric Roasted Nuts

We are in the middle of a super hot summer down here in the Southern Hemisphere and I’ve caught myself the flu. Yes, the flu. In the middle of summer. Of all the rotten luck 🤦🏻‍♀️.

At least it's a good excuse to share my super flu fighting salad recipe that's packed with vitamins and immune boosting antioxidants 💪🏼 .
