Baked Baby Figs with Dark Chocolate Sauce

Do you like figs? Up until now I never really got a handle on why people raved about figs. Once I came up with this recipe I fell in love, so thought it an apt dish to serve on Valentine's Day.

Coconut & Almond Truffles

These truffles are so quick and easy to make, especially midweek. Also a tasty treat to have packed in your bag when you're heading out for a walk or hike at the weekend.

No Bake Fig Brownie

This recipe had been lost in a pile of recipes, written on scraps of paper, that had found a home for themselves in a corner of my dining room shelves. I dread to think how long they've been lying there. At long last though we are getting through them. Hope you enjoy it. This brownie has a gorgeous sweetness to it for those days when nothing else will do but to satisfy your sweet tooth. 

Quick Plum, Nectarine & Chia Seed Jam (no added sugar)

Both of us are not real jam people, until a scone or some porridge is put in front of us. Once we started making jams using chia seed then things changed. They are so easy to make and you can use most fruits. Our delicious tart plum, nectarine with chia seed jam is one of our favourites as it blends perfectly with coconut yoghurt or coconut cream. Ideal too as a topping on smoothies or with oat or quinoa porridge. When you're making the jam be sure to taste an extra plum and some nectarine as they are the flavours you're going to get. For more sweetness use riper fruit.

Warming Quinoa Porridge

As the winter is fast approaching (or if you live in Ireland like us, then it never left us!) comfort foods must be making a hasty return to your weekly menu. To help you ease back into colder months here's a quick porridge to try. A spoonful of hulled hemp seeds, dairy-free coconut cream and blueberries are delicious toppings for this porridge too.

Avocado, Sprouted Bean & Tomato Open Sandwich

This is such a tasty lunch or afternoon snack, that's it worth mentioning. It's simple too with ingredients that are usually part of a healthy kitchen like ours and hopefully yours. Trust us you'll have it as one of your favourites. 

Carrot, Apple & Celery Juice

For a more refreshing taste, you can freeze the coconut water in ice cube trays and use the coconut ice cubes the next morning in your juice.

Easy Almond & Coconut Truffles

If you're away from home and in need of a healthy treat here's one to try. You just need a mini-processor and the regular gear you'd have even in a sparsely equipped kitchen. I always try to have a mini-processor as it's easy to whip up treats.

Falafels with spiced sesame cream

I've relied on these falafels lately so I'm hoping you like them too. Now they do crumble once you cut into them. I've no problem with this as I went for full on taste. I like the crumble effect. If it bothers you be sure fire them into a bread roll you can eat or into lettuce leaves. If you're using the latter try and find baby cos as it works best with this. Otherwise if you're like myself and use your hands, two bites and they're gone.
