I've discovered some intriguing guilt-free desserts such as paleo brownies, vanilla cupcakes that actually contain cannellini beans, and a new variation on the traditional blueberry muffin. The greatest discovery, though, was a new flour that I now consider one of my very favourites. It's low GI (glycemic) and gluten-free: coconut flour.

Not surprising that eggs have been called nature's multivitamin. I think we can safely say, eggs are our friends! Not only that, but eggs are the ultimate fastfood and there really is nothing else as nutritious that can be cooked as quickly.

Recipe of the Week: Risotto Verde With Peas, Spinach and Parmesan

This is a simple risotto to make and the combination of peas, spinach and parmesan is delicious. It is very important that you cook the rice with the onion for the first few minutes so the rice will be hot when you add the hot stock. This way the rice will cook evenly and the risotto will have a chewy bite.

We ate the ravioli served on a dollop of steamed spinach, topped with a splash of Parmesan cream and scattered with crunchy, herby breadcrumbs in the form of pangrattato. It was delicious and James can be my sous chef any time he likes.

I was in the kitchen, playing with samphire. Very small pun intended - couldn't resist. Seeing what I could cook with this seasonal delicacy. Turns out that the salty sea green samphire is the perfect compliment to the earthy new potato. Match made in heaven.

Once you have moved to a country that boasts outdoor living, it is really hard to admit that for a few months of the year, the living is best kept inside, where there are fires and a distinct lack of Antarctic winds.

This cake idea was inspired by looking at my twitter feed and seeing how many people were preparing for Ramadan this year and the anticipation of Iftar.

Summer Chicken - a One-Pot Meal

Linda Duffin

This is a great one-pot recipe. Once you've browned the chicken, it bubbles away happily by itself until the last half hour, when you need to start adding the baby vegetables. Unlike a hearty winter stew, it's light and summery, but still packed full of flavour.

My Almond Tabbouleh Recipe and Why It Has No Wheat

Christopher James Clark | Posted 02.07.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Christopher James Clark

Tabbouleh, a traditional Middle Eastern dish, offers dense nutrition and bold, delicious flavors. For the millions of people avoiding wheat, however, tabbouleh's inclusion of bulgur spoils the fun. Omitting the bulgur is an option, but swapping in germinated almonds is far more interesting. We'll get to the recipe, but first let's briefly give wheat the benefit of the doubt.
