Sprouted Lentil Salad

Have you ever come across a salad that looks great, tastes great, is super healthy, and so easy to make? This is one of them, and it sells out fast in our cafe. To sprout the lentils you just need to soak them overnight, then rinse them morning and evening the next day, keep them…

Couscous Eggplant Salad

This has been a popular choice in our cafe lately. It’s a tasty, hearty salad. It takes a bit longer to make, but it’s worth the effort, and leftovers travel well in a sealed container for lunch the next day.

Tomato Basil Soup

A great simple soup for autumn, especially if you have locally grown, freshly harvested tomatoes – the taste is amazing. The more the tomatoes are vine-ripened, the better the flavour. Great served with a swirl of thinned-down cashew topping and fresh basil leaves.

Beetroot Hummus

This is a really tasty hummus with a delightful rich colour. Hummus is a great way of adding protein, fiber, and calcium to your day. It gives long-lasting energy and prevents blood sugar spikes. It’s naturally gluten-free, dairy-free and nut free, and incredibly versatile. Use it in sandwiches, wraps, or as a dip.  

Lemon Tahini Quinoa Salad

This is a great recipe from Leanne Campbell’s ‘The China Study Cookbook’. We simply increased the salt amount to taste . We’ve been serving this in our cafe together with a beetroot hummus, sprouted grain crispbreads, and fresh buttercrunch lettuce

Savoury Chickpeas

A simple little addition to any meal, or a great snack, these savoury chickpeas are tasty, moreish, and high in protein and fiber. We love to add them to quinoa and kale in a protein bowl, or toss them through salad.

Edamame Smash

A tasty spread that is high in protein… The edamame (young soybeans) in this spread offer a complete protein, as well as calcium, vitamin C and iron.

Roasted Fennel Pesto

Roasted fennel bulb with roasted almonds, fennel fronds, olive oil and garlic make a more-ish pesto that teams up very nicely with anything. What’s anything? We mixed it through roasted potatoes, yum. You can also spread it on wholegrain bread,  use it as a dip with carrot sticks and celery sticks, or mix it through salads. Or just eat…

Corn Fritters

These fritters are always a hit in our cafe – everyone loves them and many ask for the recipe – so here it is. Egg-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, but definitely not taste-free! The fritters are bound by a ‘linseed egg’, a great egg replacement in fritters – basically 1 Tbsp linseed and 3 Tbsp water mixed…

Butternut pumpkin, spinach & tofu curry

This simple, plant-based and full flavoured curry is very nice served with brown jasmine rice, fresh spray-free tomatoes, coriander and green salad from the garden.   

Not Meatballs – Nutballs

This recipe has been a tried and true favourite for some time now. The cashew nuts, sunflower seeds and tofu contribute plenty of protein. The balls are full of flavour and very simple and quick to make – we’ve had a lot of success with school-aged children making these at our workshops for vegan spaghetti bolognaise & not…

Creamy Potato Celeriac Soup

Ever tasted something and though, ‘wow, I have to have that again!’? This soup was one of those items for us. A friend of ours made it, based on recipes she grew up with in Poland. It’s a thick, creamy soup, served with fried onions, roasted diced potatoes and celeriac on top, and a sprinkling…
