Almond Cake


Anyone in need of a super fast and easy cake? 
I used this recipe from Green Kitchen Stories.  I cut the recipe in half and it still made a decent size cake! I substituted coconut oil instead of the rapeseed oil because I didn't have any, and used fresh raspberries instead. 
For the glaze I used Krema Greek style thick and rich honey yogurt.
Seriously though, you've got to try it. I've eaten half of it already.........

Salad Bowl



This is one of my new favourite salads! We've now had it 2 nights in a row, except last night I made it with chicken breast which was just as good.  Since I always just wing it when cooking I'll try to make it as accurate as possible....

Ingredients:
1/2 bunch organic spinach chopped
1 sweet red pepper
2 big tomatoes 
handful of fresh basil chopped
handful rosted pistachios 
1/4 cup semi sprouted mixed sprouts 
1/4 cup crumbled feta 
1/2 cup cooked and cooled quinoa 
half a can of chickpeas:
 washed, drizzled in olive oil, paprika and salt. Broil till golden brown 
1 steak:
fried in butter seasoned with salt, chilli powder and smoked paprika. Cut into thin slices

Dressing;
1/4 cup avocado oil 
1 fresh squeezed lemon juice 
1 tsp. organic dijon mustard 
1.5 tsp. finely grated ginger 
1 finely grated garlic clove
pinch of pink himalayan salt 
pinch of freshly grated pepper 

In my photos the quinoa is beneath the salad, but it can be tossed with everything!
Enjoy

Gardens in the Sun






One of the most satisfying things is picking fresh right from a garden. 
Both my mother and mother in law have amazing gardens, and I can't wait to create one of my own some day soon!
