A perfect side dish with every meal and an excellent snack as well!

Grilled Sweet Potato Wedges

This must be the shortest recipe on this website. The ingredient's list has one ingredient only...sweet potatoes!

Lovely sandwiches, perfect as a light meal or lunch

Grilled Vegetable Sandwiches

I often make these when I have some "past their best" vegetables in the fridge. My husband absolutely loves these sandwiches and I have to admit, so do I.

I love, love, love quacamole


I don't understand how people can buy guacamole in a jar.

The versatility of hummus is amazing, it just goes with everything!


I love hummus, absolutely love it. Whenever I go to a Middle-Eastern restaurant (especially the Lebanese restaurants in London) I always order some hummus.

A very African dish, low cost, but satisfying and simple

Irio (Mashed Potatoes with Onion and Peas)

I have had Irio on many occasions when travelling through Kenya. It is originally a dish of the Kikuyu people.

Nothing reminds me more of my travels through East Africa than this salad

Kachumbari (Tomato and Onion Salad) from Africa

This recipe was given to my by my sister in law, Lucy Mwangi who is from Kenya. Wherever I have travelled in East Africa, I have always been served a similar salad.

Packed with healthy fatty acids and vitamins

Linseed Biscuits

Linseeds (flaxseeds) is the richest source of omega 3 essential fatty acids which is also found in oily fish. Because it comes from a plant source, it is perfect for vegetarian and vegan diets.

Magical pumpkin pieces in coconut milk, served in an African bowl

Magical Pumpkin in Coconut Sauce

I famously had a very similar side dish once in Nairobi which you can read all about in the The Spinach Dish From the Mystical House in Nairobi's Forest. It is a lovely, slightly sweet side dish with a delicate coconut aftertaste. It is absolutely lovely served with main dishes that include spinach, especially Indian and African food.

A lovely home made mango chutney

Mango Chutney

I love mango chutney but the ones you buy from your local supermarket are very often packed with additives, sugar and rubbish. I would never eat such a thing.

A lighter mayonnaise without all the rubbish


Mayonnaise which you can buy from your local supermarket is usually absolutely packed with additives and bad stuff.

A lovely and colourful North African salad

Moroccan Orange and Olive Salad

This is a exceptionally lovely salad and a bit different than the salads we are used to since there is no lettuce or anything green in it.

This lovely salad has the colours of the Italian flag; red, green and white

Mozzarella, Tomato and Basil Salad (Tricolore)

Although my husband doesn't eat cold cheese (only melted...I know...weird) he loves cold mozzarella.

The best start to the day

Muesli with Dried Fruits, Nuts and Seeds

My husband once told me that there was one particular restaurant in the world he would like to try, and that he had read some great reviews on it.

Bean sprouts is what we should all be eating loads of! Amazingly healthy

Mung Bean Sprouts

I love bean sprouts. They are so healthy and versatile. I often eat them on their own like a snack or I use them in salads, on sandwiches and even in casseroles.

A low fat and healthy mustard sauce

Mustard Sauce

I use mustard sauce with everything, on my salad, my sandwich, on nut patties, with fish, with grilled vegetables, as a dip for raw vegetables...you name it.

So lovely nut patties

Nut and Vegetable Patties

These are quite wonderful patties you can use instead of hamburgers, as a filling in pitta breads or plain served with a salad, rice and a light dressing. I usually make a whole bunch and freeze.

Lovely and healthy oatmeal biscuits, perfect for lunch

Oatmeal Biscuits

I love oatmeal biscuits, unfortunately they are not available in Iceland (at least not my favourite kind which is Nairns).

I make this dish often in the autumn when root vegetables are at their best

Oven Baked Root Vegetables

There is nothing better than preparing this dish with your own vegetables from the garden.

Home made peanut butter, absolutely lovely!

Peanut Butter

There is something deeply satisfying about making your own peanut butter.

This sauce is on the richer side so use sparingly

Peanut Sauce from Uganda

I remember tasting a very similar sauce in Uganda one time. It was served with potatoes and barbecued goat and beef.

A very colourful salad, with deep red beetroots and bright yellow pineapple

Pineapple and Beetroot Salad from Naivasha

I remember vividly when I saw this salad for the first time. I was in Naivasha, Kenya, at a small lodge just by Lake Naivasha.

I usually make a whole bunch of these in one go to freeze and re-heat later

Pitta Pizzas

Need a quick, tasty, yet healthy dinner but are too tired to make anything decent? Look no further. I often make truckloads of these to freeze and re-heat later.

The healthiest start to your busy day


I don't understand people that can go to work or school on an empty stomach. It is like driving your car without fuel...now you wouldn't do that would you?

A very healthy and delicious version of potato chips with no added fat

Potato Chips

These potato chips have absolutely no fat and are still delicious and crispy. Ok they might not be as juicy as your traditional potato chips but if you want a healthy alternative this is the one.

A very good source of protein, healthy fats and energy

Power Bars with Carob Frosting

These are fantastic power bars, ones that I make very often for me and my husband. They are packed with healthy mono-unsaturated fats, protein, complex carbohydrates and slow releasing energy.
