CASHEW CHEESE PLEASE
This is so delicious and versatile! I love anything that can be made in large batches to save on time in the kitchen throughout the week and anything that pairs well on multiple meals. This is one of those plant based staples to have in the fridge.

EASY TOMATO PASSATA
Okay so not all of us have an incredible Nonna willing to spend days making us genuine old school pasta sauce, so here is the next best thing that's not so labour intensive.
This sauce is incredibly versatile. From straight up pasta sauce with spaghetti to a pizza base sauce. You can tweak it to make home made ketchup or turn it into a salsa in a nacho bowl. There are so many uses, which is why I recommend making this in a big batch and freezing it for whenever you next need it.

NOT-SO NAUGHTY NACHOS
When you feel like comfort food or something quick and easy to put together for the kids, this fail safe meal tastes as good as it looks.
The best part - it's plant based, gluten free and is quite nutrient dense with legumes, vegetables, fresh herbs and healthy fats in there. And as you are making most of it from scratch yourself, the sodium levels will be much lower than buying everything store bought. So dig in, guilt free!

This one is my mother's recipe which was passed down to her by my grandmother, so it actually is an heirloom recipe! And it's a family favourite.
This vegetarian quiche has heirloom tomatoes.
It's light and doesn't taste 'eggy' like some quiches can.
With just two ingredients, the base is so easy to make from scratch and worth it!

There's nothing better than a warm bowl of porridge on a cold morning. The best part about making this, is it forces you to stop and take your morning slow. This version is a decadent one but oh so good and refined sugar free!
Did you know oats are an incredible source of soluble fibre which is so good for your gut. Add the potassium from the banana, good fats from the peanut butter, Polyphenols from the dark chocolate and protein from the activated buckinis, it's hard to believe that something that looks so naughty could be so good for you.

FERMENTED RED CABBAGE
Fermentation has existed for centuries out of necessity due to the lack of access to refrigeration. However they're actually a nutritious pro-biotic rich food.
They populate the intestinal tract with good bacteria and help lower bad gut bacteria which cause inflammation to the digestive system.
Fermented vegetables and fruits in particular are higher in anti-oxidants and minerals than cooked vegetables as they are served raw keeping heat sensitive vitamins in-tact.

CHICKEN BONE BROTH
Bone broth has been shown to help the body repair. It's great when you have the flu, issues with a leaky gut, joints and skin. It's rich in anti-inflammatory and detoxifying amino acids, including glycine and proline which form our skin's collagen.

GLUTEN FREE MUFFINS
If you have an intolerance to gluten, it can be so challenging to find recipes that achieve the equivalent texture and taste of the regular wheat based variety.
With raw honey, it's refined sugar free, uses grated carrots and apple giving it moisture. It's also packed with soluble fibre with a combination of oats and almond meal which is great for gut health. You will not miss regular muffins when you've had these!
