Recipe for Coconut Milk Yoghurt

Recipe for Coconut Milk Yoghurt

Ever tasted CoYo? This brand of yoghurt has a cult following. If you are dairy-free, tasting it is almost like a religious experience. Creamy, thick, unctuous – it’s beyond Bach. Given the industrial quantities of CoYo I scarf, it was about time I made my own.       Almost a decade ago I was […]

New Video – aging, and how to put the breaks on

This is the start of a fun #WTF series on healthy foods. Cleaning up your diet doesn’t need to assault your taste buds or involve thigh-licking lycra. No one should be threatened with that. Tell me what you think, and which foods you’d like me to cover next!  Leave your comments below and don’t forget […]

Lemon Shizzle Cake

Lemon Shizzle Cake

Botox Baking This sticky citrus cake is practically belching with age-defying vitamins like E, C and plant-based calcium. Its fantastical glow comes from a spice called turmeric, more recently referred to as poor man’s saffron. Turmeric delivers a cargo of anti-inflammatory artillery for squeaky bones and damaged skin. Not bad for a cáca milis. We […]

White Chocolate Truffles

White Chocolate Truffles

Meet lucuma. A spoonful of this silky smooth Peruvian fruit is enough to incite poetry in Jeremy Clarkson. We team lucuma with hazelnut butter to make these outrageously tasty white chocolates. (Was that a teensy squeal?) When dried, lucuma is a cracking way of naturally sweetening desserts. You’ll also get a surprising dose of niacin […]

Wens Feb 25th, final supper club (sold out)

A final date for our Supper Club at Harvey Nichols, before I hibernate. Irish Times food writer, Domini Kemp, and I plan on hot-wiring your battery. After your 3 course supper, you will be levitating with vitamins. We’ll start with a spicy immune-boosting soup, followed by a massive superfood salad with creamy goji dressing and […]

Gluten-free Chickpea Crepes

Gluten-free Chickpea Crepes

If Ebola doesn’t get us, gluten will. Nah, just kidding. GSOH folks! Gluten is not a poison – let’s get that straight.  Gluten is not unhealthy either. For most people, gluten (a protein found in wheat, rye and barley) is more than tolerable. It’s bleedin’ great. Gluten is what makes baguettes fluffy and donuts spongy. […]

Chilli Chocolate Mousse & other aphrodisiacs

Chilli Chocolate Mousse & other aphrodisiacs

Something to help you out this evening. Mother Nature’s best aphrodisiacs …     You can find my recipe for a rather, erm, stimulating Chilli Chocolate Mousse in TheJournal today, and on page 239 of The Extra Virgin Kitchen.  It’s mousse like no other. Happy Valentine’s Day!   (photography Jo Murphy)         […]

Barbie Fudge

Barbie Fudge

My giddy four year old came up with this recipe, when he accidentally dropped a small jar of beetroot powder into the pot while I was making a halva-style fudge.  MacGyver has competition. Dynamite stuff. Sesame are mighty little seeds. They are practically belching with B vitamins, the ones responsible for energy ignition and brain […]
