Kombucha! You've probably heard of it, but might not have tasted it yet. The first time we came across this magic little potion was in L.A......I mean where else! It's an ancient drink from China, and it's packed with multiple health benefits. It's sharp and vinegary in flavour, and takes a little getting used to but once you do you're hooked. There are various places that have started stocking it now so you can probably grab a bottle from your local market/shop, or better yet make your own! I've made a few batches so far, and my brother has an ongoing brew going. He suffers from arthritis, and has really noticed an improvement in aches since he's started brewing Kombucha (he has also started on a new form of medication, so says he's not sure if that's what making the difference. Maybe a combination of both. There's a lot of sceptic around the bouche, but I personally believe in the health benefits of this little concoction, and if nothing else it's still damn tasty! To brew you own you'll need a few things to get you started, first and foremost - The SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast), a slimly little sucker but that is what makes the magic happen! I got mine from Happy Kombucha. You can get lot's more information on all the ins and outs of Kombucha brewing from the world wide web. This recipe is from one of my favourite food blogs - Nourish Atelier. Enjoy the brew!
A plate of hummus for dinner on it's own might seem odd to some, but believe me IT IS delicious! The first time I had hummus like this was at Hummus Bros in Soho. I had it with a slow cooked lamb stew, and just the thought of it makes my mouth water as I'm typing away this very moment. So I would highly recommend trying it out with a hearty lamb stew, cooked with cinnamon and star anise, garnished with a generous handful of coriander and some roasted sesame seeds but any other type of stew or just lots of fresh vegetables will be great as well. The hummus recipe is from Nourish Atelier. Bon appetite!
Butternut Squash and Pomegranates are always a great combination, both visually and tastewise. They're both loaded with antioxidants, and falls in the superfood category. This salad is nice and light, and you can either have it on it's own or serve with some delicious roast chicken. A bit of goats cheese will also do just fine here. And if you're short of pistachios, chopped or flaked almonds works just as well. The recipe is from Sprouted Kitchen. Enjoy!
If you're in a bit of rush, omelette is always a good shout. Bish bash bosh, you're ready to go! This recipe is from Anna Jones behind the cook books A modern Way To Eat & A Modern Way To Cook. Don't be shy of adding your own touch to it, or have a look at her 10 Favourite fillings here. I like to add some smoked or flaked Salmon, and Pecorino cheese to top it off. Always use organic free range eggs if you can, it taste better and it feels better. Bon appetite!
Easy to make, delicious to eat! Make sure you get some sustainable high quality tuna from your local fishmonger. Another alternative is some nice smoked salmon. I like to add a little ketchup to the dressing as well, just a tablespoon. Give it a try, guarantee you'll love it. And don't be afraid to replace or add more vegs, like sugar snaps, grated carrots, baby corns...etc. I'd recommend to have it with quinoa, it's packed with protein and a long list of healthy benefits.
