Vanilla and Cinnamon Pancakes

For anyone following our Instagram, you would know how much we love Naked Seeds pancake mix! It is so delicious and perfect for when you don’t have much time but are seriously craving some pancakes (or even waffles!) All you have to do is add eggs and your choice of nut milk and voila! We like to mix up the …

Tuna Salad Bowl

This tuna salad bowl is all my favourite foods in one meal. So fresh, healthy and delicious. We have used sashimi grade tuna, purchased from Fine Fish in Neutral Bay. As we always say, the quality of the produce is of utmost importance so we prefer to have high quality fish less often than having it more often and having …

Lemon Curd Profiterole Pancakes

For those of you who follow us on Instagram, you can probably tell we are having fun with our new toy… A ‘filled pancake pan’, which we like to call ‘profiterole pancakes’! These lemon curd centred profiterole pancakes were made using ‘Naked Seeds’ pancake mix. We absolutely love this product… It is healthy, delicious and incredibly versatile. We have used …

Coconut Porridge

As the mornings start to get cooler, we start to crave a warming and nourishing breakfast. This coconut porridge made with quinoa flakes and amaranth is the perfect gluten free alternative to rolled oats. We recommend serving with our homemade blueberry or raspberry coulis for added flavour and sweetness (recipe in basics). We have also added a tablespoon of INCA …

Coconut Vegetable Samosas

Our take on traditional Indian vegetable samosas! These are made using Jimalie coconut wraps which can be purchased at most health food stores. For the filling, we use dried organic Australian grown chickpeas so these need to be soaked overnight and then boiled before they can be added to the vegetable mixture. We find these offer greater taste as well as …

Orange and Sesame Donut Cakes

This recipe has been adapted from our ‘cinnamon spiced orange cake’ and like the cake, has a delicious ‘sponge’ like consistency. We have used sesame flour which is a great alternative to almond meal if you are intolerant and/or sensitive to nuts. That means our orange donut cakes are not only gluten, dairy and refined sugar free but they are …

Caramelised Sesame Popcorn Cake

This dessert tastes so indulgent, it is almost hard to believe that it’s healthy! Made using organic sesame flour, it has a deliciously soft centre and is a perfect paired with choc-tahini sauce. For the sauce, we have also added mesquite powder which helps to create a caramel flavour, along with coconut oil which allows the sauce to set. We …

Raw Chocolate Drops

These chocolate drops were inspired by the base from several of our raw cheesecakes, made using macadamias, dates, buckinis and coconut. It is such a great combination of flavours so we thought we would use the same recipe to make raw cookies, topped with choc-tahini sauce (recipe in basics). You could also substitute the choc-tahini sauce for raspberry-chia jam or …

Matcha pancakes

These delicious super green pancakes have a twist of lemon and are made with one of our all time favourite superfoods, matcha powder by Matcha Maiden. They are so light and fluffy, and packed with nutrients and antioxidants. We recommend serving with organic Greek yoghurt, or CoYo if you are looking for a dairy free alternative. Ingredients  Serves 2 1/4 …

Quinoa Stir Fry

This quinoa stir-fry is perfect for a light lunch, or can be served as an accompaniment with many of our dishes. We love to serve our ‘honey soy chicken’ on a bed of vegetable quinoa stir-fry. It is also a great option for a healthy packed lunch, as it can be served hot or cold. Ingredients  Serves 3-4 1 courgette, …

Asian Spiced Crab Omelette

We usually make this omelette as a lunch or dinner, however it is also great for Sunday brunch. It is really easy to make, yet always impresses our guests and is packed with protein and many other nutrients (not to mention that it is seriously flavoursome and delicious!). We recommend garnishing with fresh shallots, a wedge of  lemon or lime, …

Lemongrass Chicken Kebabs

As you may have gathered by now, we love thai flavours – lemongrass being one of our favourites. Lemongrass also has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, helping ward off illness. As we’ve previously mentioned, chicken is one of the most important foods to buy organic, to avoid synthetic antibiotics and hormones as well as pesticide laden foods that the chickens consume. …

Thai Spiced Crab and Avocado Timbale

Our Crab Timbale is the perfect light, refreshing and healthy dinner in the lead up to Summer, not to mention it is incredibly delicious! We love creating thai flavours with ginger, chilli, lime and mint – it goes with so many meals and is just so hard to beat. As you can probably tell by now, we love our avocado …

Crepes Suzette

To any crepes suzette lovers out there, we highly recommend you try out this recipe! Our gluten, dairy, sugar (and alcohol!) free version is absolutely to-die-for. These crepes are filled with Botanical Cuisine Orange and Lucuma cashew yoghurt and our homemade orange sauce, dusted with ground cinnamon and grated orange zest.  We used regular oranges for our sauce, but if you prefer …

Lemon Lime Matcha ‘Cheesecake’

Our healthy ‘cheesecakes’  just got even healthier thanks to the added antioxidant hit of matcha powder – pure stone ground green tea. This week we have been lucky enough to try out this new superfood, thanks to Matcha Maiden and we are absolutely loving it. We’ve been adding it to lots of things from our morning green smoothies to our raw, …

Healing Carrot and Ginger Soup

Words cannot describe how nourishing and flavoursome this soup is! Whenever I am not feeling 100%, this is my go-to meal. Ginger contains several medicinal compounds… It is great for relieving stomach complaints, nausea and calming a sore throat. Now that is my kind of medicine! Ginger is also a very warming spice so this soup makes for the perfect …

Blueberry Chia Pancakes

This recipe is quite similar to our older Blueberry Pancake recipe but we absolutely loved the new additions so thought we would still share it with you all. I cannot emphasize enough how much I recommend Botanical Cuisine cashew yoghurts. They are incredible! These pancakes are topped with their acai and blueberry cashew yoghurt, combined with our homemade blueberry coulis …

Quinoa Sushi

Japanese is hands down one of my all time favourite cuisines. Having recently moved house, we have noticed that our area (although packed with great cafes and restaurants) is a bit lacking in good asian food. So we decided to take matters into our own hands and have Japanese nights at home! We love serving our quinoa sushi as a …

Strawberry Rose ‘Icecream’ Cake

I think this cake should come with a warning… It is highly addictive! It has such a delicious strawberry flavour and creamy texture with a cacao base… Because who doesn’t love strawberries and chocolate! We also love the hint of rose from the rosewater and edible rose petals sprinkled on top. You only need a very small amount of rosewater …

Courgette and Halloumi Fritters

Another quick, simple and delicious recipe. This recipe is not dissimilar from our ‘Sweet Corn and Pumpkin Fritters’, but we wanted to share another variation with you. We find that fritters are the perfect dinner option after a long day at work when you don’t really feel like cooking, as they are so easy to make. However, they are also …
