  • Panzanella

    STALE BREAD SHOULD NEVER GO TO WASTE AGAIN! Panzanella is a Tuscan summer specialty based on bread and tomatoes – and it’s absolutely delicious! It’s a very healthy meal, full of fresh ingredients, low in calories and rich in nutrients. Just the process of making it will make you feel like an Italian God/ess, as the aromas and colors fill the plate. I’ve found inspiration for this recipe in the River Cottage VEG Cookbook by a man with a very complicated last name, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.

  • Vegetarian Quiche with Broccoli & Goat Cheese

    Vegetarian quiche are underrated. They are a healthy option compared to your regular quiche for several reasons. Plant-based, relatively low on fat, and filled with nutrients. It’s no wonder we love them! Make your own to assure you’re not getting in the high sugar and high salt content often found in pre-made quiches in supermarkets. I use goat and sheep cheese instead of cow cheese, which according to some sources are more easily digested. Serve as dinner alongside a green salad, or use it as your go-to snack by cutting it into small square pieces and storing in the fridge.

  • Mackerel & Olive Pizza with Fresh Basil

    LAST SUMMER, I MADE THIS DELICIOUS FEISTY PIZZA. It is a summer special worth making again and again! Goes well with a glass of fresh lemonade or white wine. Also perfect for lazy winter nights though, especially with the benefits of fatty fish. MACKEREL IS A FATTY FISH just like salmon, except that is it less expensive. I buy it canned from an organic food store or smoked from a local who catches them in the wild. Whichever you choose, make sure that your mackerel is wild and organic to get the most out of this healthy fish. MACKEREL IS RICH IN omega-3, making it a potent anti-inflammatory food. With…
