Christmas

My favourite nut loaf. It is an absolute winner every time

Curry Nut Loaf

This is my favourite nut loaf. It is originally from a book called World Food Cafe in London. The cafe is amazing and so is the book, I definitely recommend both!

A lovely meal, perfect for dinner and in your lunchbox

Stuffed Peppers

These are my version of the stuffed pepper I learnt how to make on a veggie course here in Iceland.

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.

A very healthy meal packed with protein and healthy fats

Tuna Steaks and Noodles with Ginger and Tamari Dressing

This is the perfect meal for those who are trying to eat healthy yet lightly.

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.

The most summery salad of all

Summer Salad with Oranges and Watermelons

If there was a competition for healthy salads, this one would clearly be a winner.

A colourful and extremely healthy salad, perfect for lunch

Lunchbox Salad

I often make a large salad as a side dish to a dinner and pack the rest for my lunch the next day.

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.

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.

A bowl full of sunshine, vitamins and colour

East African Fruit Salad

In every upmarket hotel/lodge I have stayed in when travelling in East Africa (and they are many) a fresh fruit salad is served at the end of a meal.
