WARM carrot, coconut, ginger and fennel soup

WARM carrot, coconut, ginger and fennel soup

As the seasons change and winter sets in, we innately seek to warm our bodies with well cooked, nourishing foods. The crisp and cool salads of summer suddenly seem less appealing, and the idea of a big pot of soup and an early night in becomes more so. This soup is full of wintery seasonal...
WARM yogi porridge

WARM yogi porridge

This porridge is so great in the cooler months of the year – it takes a bit of preparation time, but is totally worth it! Best to soak all grains the night before for more nutritious, not to mention quicker, cooking.   Healing ingredients:   Banana: High in fibre, iron, protein B6 and B12, bananas are...
RAW turkish delight superfood balls

RAW turkish delight superfood balls

  The combination of pistachios, rose water and cranberries give these little balls a turkish delight flavour. You can however, also replace the rosewater with lemon. Healing ingredients: Cranberries: Native to North America, cranberries were traditionally used by Native Americans to treat kidney and bladder diseases. Later the berry, high in Vitamin C, was used to...
RAW coconut yoghurt

RAW coconut yoghurt

  Healing ingredients: Coconut: a truly amazing food, coconuts provide the body with a range of nutrients including bacteria, magnesium, calcium and potassium. As a food source, cultured coconut forms an alkalising and anti-fungal yoghurt that soothes the stomach and repairs minor damage to the intestinal lining by rebalancing the pH state of the gut...
RAW pina colada salad

RAW pina colada salad

Woohoo summer! This raw salad is light, fresh and so easy to make! I use the lettuce leaves to make wraps, however you could omit these altogether and serve the remaining ingredients as a salad in their own right. As always, aim for local and organic ingredients! Try especially to use organic pineapple and cucumber,...
RAW coconut, lime & kiwi 'cheesecake'

RAW coconut, lime & kiwi ‘cheesecake’

This raw dessert uses coconut, (rather than nuts) to bind the cake ingredients. I find many raw desserts very ‘nut heavy’ – nut bases with nut creme fillings – so I wanted to try something a bit lighter. I didn’t think that the shredded coconut and coconut milk would bind, but it worked beautifully! The...
WARM activated chickpea salad with coconut yoghurt

WARM activated chickpea salad with coconut yoghurt

Melbourne weather has been windy, warm, rainy and cold throughout the past week. In both Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine, windy and transeasonal weather is recognised as a particularly ungrounding and confusing time for the body and the mind. The inclusion of earthy foods such as root vegetables, whole grains and warming spices is recommended...
RAW energizing cacao & chia snowballs

RAW energizing cacao & chia snowballs

These snowballs are AMAZING! The shredded coconut and chia seeds make them super crunchy and fresh tasting, and they have no sweeteners to bind, just Medjool dates and cold pressed coconut oil. Ingredients: 1 cup shredded coconut 3 tablespoons of cacao powder 2 tablespoons maca powder 10 Medjool dates 1 tablespoon tahini 1 handful goji...
BAKED lemon, coconut, sesame & cranberry cookies

BAKED lemon, coconut, sesame & cranberry cookies

These cookies are sweet and zesty all at once , and for optimum flavour, try to use organic options for all ingredients. You will need a blender to blitz the ground flaxseeds and water – a handheld mixer will do the job fine. The use of ground flaxseeds was inspired by a recipe here from...
RAW vegan cherry ripe

RAW vegan cherry ripe

I am biased, but I think this might be my favourite home-style raw dessert yet! As always, really simple ingredients and easy to make. I am having a bit of a love affair with rosewater at the moment, and having just returned with a beautiful new bottle from India, I had to include it in...
RAW mango maca balls

RAW mango maca balls

Healing Ingredients: Maca: Another ancient superfood, Maca powder is a traditional energy source of the Incas. Maca is also an alkalising agent, which means that it stimulates and cleanses the master glands, as well as containing over 60 phytochemicals. Including Maca in your daily diet will most likely increase your energy levels. Ingredients:  100 grams...
RAW banana parfait with salted pecan brittle and caramel swirls

RAW banana parfait with salted pecan brittle and caramel swirls

  This is a bit indulgent….! Refrigerates well for a day or two, so if you have any left over it will be fine in the fridge. Just the usual blending business, but you will need to allocate some time for soaking your cashews (3-4 hours) before making the banana cream. You will only need...
RAW caramel truffles

RAW caramel truffles

  These truffles are inspired by the amazing salty caramel-ness of the sauce I used in the raw banana parfait. Like all truffles, these are super quick and easy! Ingredients: 8 Medjool dates 1 cup dessicated coconut 1 cup cashews, soaked for 20 minutes 1 teaspoon fresh vanilla bean (paste or pod) 1 tablespoon coconut oil...
Lemon Myrtle, Coconut & Chili Superfood Salad

Lemon Myrtle, Coconut & Chili Superfood Salad

This is a very Australian twist on one of my favourite salads. The sweetness of fresh shelled peas, coconut and coriander are given a gentle boost from the red chilli and lemon myrtle. The fragrance of lemon myrtle, coriander and mint can be quite strong, so if you are sensitive to more intense herbs, add...
