Chickpea, Cashew & Carrot Salad


This delicious Chickpea, Cashew & Carrot Salad is a fast and simple salad to make. I love to toast the cashew nuts in a little sesame oil however, you could also use olive oil. This salad tastes delicious with my Cashew Teriyaki Dressing drizzled over the top.

Gluten-Free Oat Fish Fingers & Paprika Sweet Potatoes

Gluten-Free Oat Fish Fingers & Paprika Sweet Potatoes

Last week I was craving some comfort food, and nothing sounded better to me that good ole fish and chips!  I wanted to come up with a healthy alternative to the usual readymade fish fingers and oven chips you can buy in the supermarkets. They also needed to be gluten-free.

Roast Pepper & Goats Cheese Salad

Roast Pepper & Goats Cheese Salad

This tasty Roast Pepper & Goats Cheese salad can be enjoyed hot or cold.  If you are making it in advance keep the peppers aside until it cools, otherwise it will melt the goat's cheese. I used a selection of mixed leaves including lettuce, spinach and red chard as the base and dressed it with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. I also love to add onion chutney which is store bought but this isn't essential.  The dish would also work well alongside some quinoa.
