Salads

Wild salmon courgetti with sundried tomato & cashew pesto

This recipe tastes as good as it sounds and looks and is super quick to prepare too. The creaminess from the cashews in the pesto adds the comforting starch-like pasta texture and taste so you will be in pasta land, minus the post pasta bloat! This dish is delicious...

Lettuce wrap with coriander prawns & basil salsa

Salad wraps are my favourite way of eating mid-week, espcially in the winter when the evenings are chilly and you don't necessarily fancy tucking into a cold salad and you want something a little more warming. They are fresh and crunchy every time and it's always fun...

Roasted Curried Cauliflower & Chickpeas

This recipe seems almost too simple to post but it's so delicious and a favourite in my house and has converted friends and family who previously didn't like cauliflower. Roasting cauliflower adds a whole new dimension to the taste and there are so many delicious...

Cauliflower & chickpea pizza

This pizza is super delicious and is basically a salad in disguise! It's base is made with cauliflower and chickpeas and then it is topped with more plant goodness whilst still getting the whole pizza experience which is just the best since pizzas are rather yum! As...

Spiralized carrots with lemon & ginger dressing

I was so inspired last weekend at the food market to buy so many incredible winter vegetables that are coming into season now but my favourite to play with has been the organic rainbow carrots; they have brightened up my lunchbox everyday this week. I experimented...

Quinoa & tahini sushi

This recipe has been on my list of recipes to share with you since the launch of Jessipes as I love sushi, it's one of my favourite ways to eat, however, I've found a way to make traditional sushi healthier by switching rice for quinoa. Often white rice in sushi...

Avocado & Jalapeño Dip

This creamy dish is one of my favourite ways to enjoy avocados which are one of my favourite fruits as they are one of the most versatile ingredients to cook and they add a whole level of creaminess to whatever dish they touch. They are also super high in vitamins E,...

Tuna nicoise with basil, lemon & tahini dressing

After visting Billingsgate Market last weekend, I came away with the most incredible fish and knocked this dinner up in less than 10 minutes. It was so enjoyed, that I made it for breakfast again the following morning and enjoyed it just as much for brekki. I highly...

Grilled peach salad with mint pesto

I had to share with you this salad. It was inspired by a recipe my mum made with grilled peaches for a dessert one time so I thought I'd introduce it to a salad, as salad in fruit is so under-rated and nowehere near done enough! I only like to use seasonal fruits, so...

Pomegranate, Sweet potato and Tahini Walnut Salad

One look at this salad and you're a converted salad lover! It's so colourful and after the sweet potato crisps are made which is the only timely exercise, it's literally a case of throwing the rest of the ingredients together and mixing up my favourite dressing of all...

Fig & pea shoot salad with feta & Sweet Balsamic Vinegar

This salad is so far from boring it's untrue and adds so much colour to the table it's a must try and for me, one I'll continue to make, especially on sunny days! Before figs slip out of season, I wanted to make a fig salad as they are just so gorgeous to look at as...
