Apricot & Coconut Monster Cookies

I’m not going to lie, this recipe was dreamt up on a fairly average Wednesday evening when I got really bored and started rummaging through the cupboards to see what I could make. I had a load of desiccated coconut and half a packet of dried apricots lurking in the cupboard to be used up….

Tried & Tested: Joe Wick’s Coconut & Cashew Daal

Up until a year or so ago daal was just something on the Indian takeaway menu that I’d never tried because I didn’t know what it was. When it comes to takeaways we’re all guilty of sticking to our favourites right? Then last spring a friend of mine took me to an amazing vegan restaurant…

Prawn & Mango Courgetti Salad with Sweet Chilli Dressing

In recent months I’ve really been trying to pay a lot more attention to what I put into my body and how it responds. Last year, after quite a long period of trying to figure out why I was getting stomach pains, I had my gall bladder removed. It’s a pretty minor operation and very…

Ping Pong, Southbank

Jerk Chicken with Rice & Peas & Fried Dumplings

Now, I’m not going to lie, this isn’t entirely my recipe… It’s my boyfriend, Tyron’s. This was the first thing he ever cooked for me and I had never had it before but I loved it! So last weekend I got him to cook it again for my parents so that I could play sous…
