An excellent barbecue sauce I first tasted in Kenya

Abdalla Hamisi's Barbecue Sauce

In 2006 we were on one of our trips to Kenya as tour guides and we stayed in private cottages run by friends, down by Diani beach, Mombasa.

Bean sprouts are packed with enzymes

Aduki Bean Sprouts

There are some tools available that are supposed to make your sprouting easier, however I have had fantastic results with just a glass jar and water.

Lovely and fresh cucumber salad

Almond and Cucumber Salad

I know I say this about nearly all my recipes but this one truly is amazingly healthy. It contains healthy fats, calcium, protein, fibre, antioxidants and minerals.

A lovely and simple dressing for every salad

Apple and Tamari Dressing

This is a lovely, fat free salad dressing which can also be served with nut patties, burgers, grilled vegetables and more.

Lovely treats, perfect with a glass of cold milk (or soy milk)

Australian ANZAC Biscuits

I have read several stories about the origin of the ANZAC Biscuits (never to be called cookies) and some myths are prevalent.

A nice combination of texture, flavour and colour

Avocado Pineapple and Red Onion Salad

This salad is interesting and a bit different. You wouldn't necessarily bet on pineapple and red onion as a duet but it works!

Baked salmon skin, absolutely delicious!

Baked Salmon Skin

Yes really, baked salmon skin!!! You might think that I have gone absolutely mad but bear with me. I can promise you that once you taste this, you won't ever throw out salmon skin again.

Perfect for using up those old and battered bananas

Banana Patties

These patties are gluten free, dairy free and nut free. They are perfect if you have over ripe bananas lying around.

Fantastic energy bars, perfect as a snack

Banana, Date and Almond Bars

Have you ever experienced buying some healthy energy bars only to discover that they taste appalling? I have and I get really angry when that happens.

Such beautiful colours

Beet Salad - Two Versions (one spicy, one sweet)

Beets have been gaining more recognition in recent years in Iceland.

A wonderfully healthy salad with vibrant colours

Beet Salad with Parmesan and Rocket Leaves

This is the perfect late summer salad. It has vibrant colours and a slightly sweet taste with a peppery kick. I adore beets (beetroots), especially baked as it brings out their subtle sweetness.

A delicious start to the day

Breakfast in a Glass

I know some people that are not keen on breakfasts and I have often told them that it is not a very good idea to start the day without filling your muscles and brain with energy.

An easy and very healthy salad, the perfect side dish for the barbecue

Carrot, Pineapple and Sultana Salad

An easy and very healthy salad, the perfect side dish for the barbecue. I have tasted a similar version of this salad several times in Kenya.

Sprouts are amazingly healthy, packed with enzymes

Chickpea Sprouts

I adore bean sprouts. They are so versatile and delicious. I often eat them as a snack, put them on my sandwich, in a salad or as a side dish with radishes, raisins and oranges.

A very healthy snack, perfect as a light lunch or starter

Chunky Potato Wedges with Guacamole and Salsa

This is a very healthy snack, perfect as a light lunch or a starter before the barbecue.

The simplest combinations are often the best

Coconut and Banana Salad

My sister in law, Elin (who has travelled extensively through Africa along with my brother) often makes this accompaniment and serves with Indian or African food.

A fairly unusual side dish but absolutely delicious

Coconut and Garlic Chutney from Tanzania

Well his recipe is tsort of not FROM Tanzania because this was served in an Indian restaurant IN Tanzania.

A lovely and fresh salsa

Coriander and Pear Salsa

This is a lovely side dish which goes well with all kinds of dishes such as spicy Indian curries and Thai food.

A light and healthy hummus, a little different to the traditional one

Courgette Hummus

This is a similar recipe to the one I found in the wonderful book Rawvolution by Matt Amsden.

An excellent energy bar and a healthy snack

Date and Nut Bar

I make my own energy bars because a) it is cheaper than buying them and b) I like to know what I am putting into my body.

A very simple yet delicious jam for every occasion

Date Jam

I use this jam for everything...as a layer when making cakes, on my toast, with hummus, on oatmeal biscuits, in my yoghurt and on waffles. It just goes with everything and is so easy to make.

My favourite power bars

Flap Jack (Power Bar)

I love home made muesli bars (flap jacks) as much as I detest the junk you can find in some stores. Often this junk is labelled ("energy bars", "power bars" or something equally wrong).

Healthy French fries...is that possible? Well yes it is!

French Fries (Chips)

I would never, ever, ever buy deep fried French fries or any other deep fried food for that matter because in my view, anything that is "cooked" in that way is completely ruined.

Children absolutely love this bread and it is one of my favourite light snacks

Grilled Bread with Tomato Sauce, Carrots and Cheese

Just before you shake your head in disgust, keep in mind that the tomato sauce I use is NOT the usual, disgusting, red sauce (sometimes called ketchup, filled with additives and sugar) that many people buy and put on everything, especially on children's food.

This is a delicious topping for bread, rice cakes and more

Grilled Pepper and Olive Relish

This is a delightful little salad/relish, perfect as a sandwich topping or as relish with grilled food. It is a nice alternative to the usual salad.
