Lime, Ginger and Tahini Dressing

 

20140430173532(2)

After a very indulgent Easter weekend I’m really looking forward to chew on some proper rabbit food i.e. salads.
I’m prepping my Spicy Autumn Salad that you can find here for lunch (it works as well during spring) but I’m using the above Lime, Ginger and Tahini dressing.
It’s one of my favourite dressings and perfect when you need to jazz up your veg.
It goes with most salads and I sometimes make a double batch and bring with me to work where they have a good salad bar but the dressings are not that healthy.

These Raw Lemon Bites are sooo addictive but also full off goodness!
I’m really into anything and everything lemon flavoured at the moment and these bites hits the spot.
They are extremely easy to make, you just mix and leave in the fridge for a few hours and voilà!

Hope you like it!

How to make Dehydrated Crisps in an ordinary oven

20140412194029(1)

My absolutely favourite naughty food is gorgeous salty crispy crisps.
But do you know that if you dehydrate thinly sliced raw potato you end up with healthy and super delicious crisps that are as good as the ones you get in a bag!
And you don’t need a dehydrator-oven to make them, an ordinary oven and 12 hours is all you need.
I hope you like it!

Raw Fennel Soup

20140323200847(2)

This great tasting Raw Fennel Soup is full of goodness.
I love the taste of fennel and it comes with both anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, it’s high in antioxidants and great for the digestive system.
The beautiful avocado enhances beauty inside and out with its abundance of healthy oils, important Vitamin K and glutathione.

Creamy Strawberry Dessert

20140323185038(1)

I’m sure you all know how incredible healthy chia seeds are: full of omega 3, minerals like calcium and manganese and lots of fab fibre. .
And if you like me have fussy eaters in the house, who don’t like the texture of the seeds as they expand (I know! how can you not love it! well a small child I know says it reminds him of eating fish-eyes) this is the perfect recipe.
It tastes just like a gorgeous bog-standard strawberry and cream pudding, the secret super-ingredient can not be detected :).
The trick is to bled the seeds to oblivion!
And don’t worry all the goodness is still intact.

This super delish raw curried soup is best served warm it’s also one of my all-time favorites!
Blend it with piping hot water and the goodness from the vegetables will still be intact.

It’s such a quick way to prepare a meal and the kids are also getting into it.
