Hidden kale risotto

Hidden kale risotto

I created this while trying to find a great way of disguising kale for the children to eat. It worked perfectly!  It was gone in minutes; they got a great dose of calcium and other essential vitamins and minerals as well as a tasty dinner. This hidden kale risotto makes a bright green meal with no ‘bits’[…]

Spelt naan bread in a bread-maker

This is such a ingeniously simple way to make spelt naan bread.  This recipe for spelt naan bread in a bread-maker is pretty-much fool proof and the results are mouth watering.  Spelt is an ancient form of wheat that is much easier to digest and, for most people, doesn’t give the bloating, tiredness or other[…]

Tamarind egg curry

Eating vegetarian and reducing tomatoes is sometimes tricky so I love this recipe for a tamarind egg curry.  Ayurveda recommends small doses of tomatoes only as they slow digestion and cause aama.  Lots of curries contain tomatoes so it is always great to find recipes which aren’t tomato based.  If you have high pitta, omit[…]

Ma Po Tofu

Ma Po Tofu

Ma Po tofu.  I should probably put that in quotation marks ‘Ma Po’ tofu as it has been properly butchered since I first started making it (thank you Ai-Leng), to make it more Ayurvedic.  It realistically no longer resembles Ma Po tofu at all but it remains utterly delicious and, as usual with my recipes,[…]

Simple homemade curry powder

This simple homemade curry powder requires only about 2 minutes of your time.  It means you can have a curry powder at hand when you need it, which doesn’t contain chilli (which aggravates the digestive tract and upsets digestion).  It is preferable to use whole spices and freshly grind to make this – you have[…]

These yummy wheat and dairy free pesto pancakes originated as pesto pancakes but then I decided to reduce the cheese content and make them more digestible.  The recipe is now for wheat and dairy free ‘pesto’ pancakes.  They remained just as delicious and the whole family love them.  They are simple to make as you[…]
