Recipe: Miso Sesame Greens

This recipe is all about the dressing – a tangy, salty, delicious concoction that works equally well on a salad as it does a stir-fry, or as I have used it here to dress up some simple steamed greens. The best part is it can be whipped up in mere minutes so you can have dinner on the table in a flash on those nights where slaving over the stove just doesn’t seem appealing. Perfect!

Recipe: Apple Slice

I found myself with a pile of apples at home so decided I should turn them into something to share with my housemates. I ummed and ahhed for a while and eventually decided to make a batch of apple slice. I kept it light on the sugar front so the fruity flavour of the apple could be the star of the show, with the light pastry happily holding it all together.

Recipe: Green Bean & Lentil Salad

Whilst I will throw chickpeas into just about anything I sometimes go weeks without going near lentils, and then all of a sudden will feel a urge to use them in something.

It’s quick, easy, healthy and full of flavour – what more could you want!
