Raspberry, Blueberry and Rose Crumble

Is there anything better than a hot, fruity pudding with a crisp and crumbly topping? That's a rhetorical question, of course. We know there's nothing quite like it. 

I am in the midst of a love affair with floral flavours, especially rose. The natural sweetness and romantic fragrance is the perfect flavour match to sharp raspberries and plump blueberries.

Fragrant Coconut and Sweet Potato Soup

During Autumn, I love to whip up delicious soups that pack a flavour punch. Even a look into this bowl says 'Autumn' with the rich golden-orange colour and chilli-red flecks.

Fragrant coriander and ginger are the perfect flavour partners to creamy coconut milk and sweet potatoes, brought together with a kick of chilli and fresh lime juice. What could be better after a long walk through the crisp Autumnal leaves?

Spicy Grilled Aubergine with late-season couscous

Grilled food is rarely associated with vegan food; so this recipe is the perfect excuse to crack out a grilling machine and get sizzling. 

Aubergine slices are brushed with a smokey harissa and chilli marinade, topped with crunchy flaked almonds, grilled and served on a bed of lemon and coriander- infused couscous, packed with grilled late-season vegetables.

Two- Minute Chocolate Raspberry Brownie

Tuesday. Not even nearly the weekend. So here's something to give you that early Friday-feeling. A fudgy, chocolatey mug-cake that you can make in just two minutes. 

This recipe is one that I turn to when I'm in need of cake. Fast. And that's quite often.

Sweet Tomato Bruschetta with Olive Tapenade

The glorious sweetness of late season tomatoes and salty, deep olive tapenade. Can it get any better? Bruschetta makes the perfect starter, snack or light lunch and is an easy way to one off your five-a-day. The best food is simple and fresh.
