Kalamata Olive Hummus

Anyone that knows me will know that I'm rather obsessed with hummus; it's by far my favourite food in the world. I make a big bowl on Sundays and have it with salad wraps mid-week, or I enjoy it with my fattoush salad and some salmon or chicken. This hummus is the...

Have to try wraps, a quick mid-week healthy dinner

Dinner ideas when you're short on time and get home late can be a tricky one but these wraps are such a life saver! I have salad wraps at least twice a week mid-week during the summer-time and in the winter time I do the same, but I heat up my prawns or I make warm...

Basil guacamole

Guacamole with a simple twist of fresh basil is something I've been making for brunch with poached eggs the past few weekends or coupling with a salad and fish at dinner time and, as ever, it's so simple, but so delicious. Avocados are truly a beauty and “superfood”...

3 minute tomato and basil pesto salad

Now that the weather is hotting up, it's the perfect time to start experimenting with salads and making them so much more than iceburg lettuce, cucumber and tomatoes. The salad takes minutes to prepare and for some reason, the longer you leave it, the flavours just...

Fattoush salad

Labanese food is my absolute favourite and has been for a number of years, even more so since my trip to Morocco in Christmas 2013. There are so many amazing Lebanese restaurants and take outs in London but my order is always the same...falafal, hummus and fattoush...
