Summer Tomato Soup & Fried Basil Chips

This is the epitome of Italian dishes (locally known as Pappa al Pomodoro) and one of my favourite, favourite soup recipes.  Actually calling it a soup is like calling the Queen ‘a lady with a handbag!’  When it’s made slowly, with love this dish has enough magic to make you believe in the simplicity and majesty of Mother Nature’s bountiful pantry! Also, 12 million Italians can’t be wrong.  An opera in a bowl……..

The Best Tomato Sauce

For when you have an abundance of tomatoes (seasonal) or you want the best base for your pasta dish or pizza topping, this sauce is the queen when it comes to tomato excellence.  Take your time, add the love in the stirring and it will all come back on the palate – trust me.

Zucchini, Mint & Feta Quiche

No pastry! No problem, my quiche will have you seated and scoffing in no time at all because I use bread (gluten free option) instead of pastry. This recipe is fabulous if you have a little left over feta and a few vegetables to spare. Please feel free to use your own veggies (peas, broccoli, spinach). If you’re a vegan, replace the feta with diced avocado or chick peas.

Spicy Banana & Coconut Relish

Ooh have you got some over ripe bananas that are stinging your eyes OR do you have some waiting for a good idea in the freezer? Well, if yes, then this is the recipe for you?

Feta -or Chicken, Avocado & Cucumber Noodle Salad

When meat isn’t a requirement but “WOW!” is – this summer salad brings personality and texture. If you’re a meat eater add some cooked shredded chicken or a vegan can skip the feta and sprinkle over chickpeas (roasted chickpeas are divine) instead.
