Crispy bean sprout, ginger and chickpea salad || A firm favourite on warm summer evenings, this light and zesty crispy bean sprout, ginger and chickpea salad is full of flavour, and is both crunchy and refreshing. It is incredibly versatile and can either be eaten as a side, or paired with a number of different protein options. It is deceptively filling, and makes a great dinner choice.

Cinnamon Almond Milk || Forget dairy - almonds make the best milk, hands down. It is rich, creamy, tasty and much easier than you might think to make. You can also try making nut milks out of cashews, hazelnuts, Brazil nuts or pistachio nuts but almonds are a great place to start.

Hemp-seed Pesto || There’s no excuse for buying pesto when you can make your own so quickly, plus it always has better flavour. Usually pesto is made with pine nuts but I use hemp seeds in this recipe instead, which are packed with omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. This is such a versatile recipe. You can mix it in with gluten-free pasta, spread on rye bread, or serve on portobello mushrooms or a freshly made caprese salad.

Tahini Asian Slaw || Crunch, crunch, crunch – this salad defines fresh! It’s hearty enough as a main meal, especially if you want to add some baked tempeh, marinated tofu or grilled chicken breast on top.

Sicilian Aubergine (eggplant) Caponata || Inspired by wonderful trips to Italy, this recipe works well as a side dish with baked fish or as a meal on its own served with polenta. The flavours are intense and brilliantly Sicilian.

Miso-glazed Aubergines || This dish is a definite show-stopper. Food that looks fancy but doesn't demand hours in the kitchen is my kind of cooking. Rich flavours, a hearty texture and all the lusciousness of aubergine "meat".

Green Goodness Dip || This intoxicatingly bright creation can be used as a dressing, an accompaniment, a topping or a dip - you choose. It is bursting with flavour and good looks so I always recommend whizzing up a double batch of this green goodness as it won’t last long on the table.
