    Vegan & Gluten Free Milk Tarts

    Today’s recipe is for a South African favourite, the humble Milk Tart, but I have tweaked the recipe to create Vegan & Gluten Free Milk Tarts. There are some dishes that trigger your childhood and take you right back to family get-togethers, and for me, that is a milk tart, which was often just served as a dessert. Milk Tart is a quintessential South African dessert and I decided I had to have a go at trying to make a version that I could comfortably eat – with no refined sugar, dairy and a gluten-free base. As I have said before, I am sensitive to dairy and gluten and the…

    30-minute Tomato & Basil Soup

    This is my super easy, super quick, 30-minute Tomato & Basil Soup recipe. The recipe has a very simple hack in that I used a combination of juicy, plump Romanita tomatoes, as well as a bottle of Romanita Tomato juice, which is a fast way to punch flavour into a tomato soup when you have limited time. From start to finish, this soup will take you 30 minutes to prepare and cook, so a great meal to make when you are short on time. What’s in the Tomato & Basil Soup? Keeping to my low dairy diet, besides the tomatoes, this soup uses coconut cream as a topping and nutritional…

    Easy Chai Spelt Waffles

    These Easy Chai Spelt Waffles are so quick and easy to make, you will never want to buy pre-bought waffles or use a waffle mix again. As I wrote in my last blog post, Spelt flour is an ancient grain that is easier to digest than regular white or whole-wheat flour. Spelt flour contains more protein and vitamin B2 than whole-wheat flour and gives the waffles a yummy nutty flavour. I decided to make the waffles have a spiced chai flavour, after enjoying the previous Chai Spiced Rooibos I had created. Chai Spices For these Easy Chai Spelt Waffles, I made my own chai spice mix consisting of cinnamon, allspice and…

    How to Make Rooibos Chai Latte

    Winter is coming (and Game of Thrones is finished😥) and today I’m going to show you how to make a Rooibos Chai Latte. This spiced drink is blended with frothed almond milk and takes only a few minutes to make at home. I absolutely love chai latte’s, but whenever I want to order one I have to first check if it is the powdered version. Although delicious and super creamy, the powdered versions are usually LADEN with milk powders that cause me to bloat within a few minutes. I’m talking about the kind of bloat that makes you like as though you may be 6 months pregnant. Not a great…

    Inspired by Street Food Netflix: Creamy Tom Yum Soup

    Inspired by Street Food Netflix: Creamy Tom Yum Soup. Over the weekend, I posted a picture of a Creamy Tom Yum soup I made after feeling inspired by Street Food Netflix and a lot of you guys asked for the recipe so, here it is. In case you didn’t see the post, Shaun and I were watching the first episode and were momentarily transported back to Thailand, as we watched the life & success of superstar Street Food Chef, Jay Fai. As the only street food eatery to be awarded a Michelin Star in the inaugural Bangkok Michelin Guide 2018, the no-frills street side venue has since catapulted to culinary…
