Crispy brown rice crackers

Ah…to make crackers that are crisp, that need so few ingredients, is nutritious and tasty…that’s what these rice crackers are. It’s pretty difficult to find cracker recipes without the need for gluten free flour. I’ve tried the chickpea one and I’m not a huge fan. So...

Apple cinnamon oat bars with allspice

I started making these oat bars last winter. I liked to wake up to a warm breakky already made for me (sometime J makes me something if he wakes up first). Maybe it was time to find something that was ready for all of us when we woke up? That’s where these bars come...

Healthy gluten free and dairy free hot cross cupcakes

Hot cross buns – mmm…I love the cinamony taste with the chewiness of the raisins in them. In India we only got them during Easter. In Australia, to my delight, we got them all year round! Who would’ve thought! When I turned towards healthy gluten, we got the spelt...

Almond garlic green beans

Garlic is one of my all-time favourite flavours. I think it tastes awesome in almost any dish (which is why I add fresh garlic in almost every dish!) If I'm ever stuck for inspiration, I first reach for the garlic. Garlic is an amazing medicinal food. There are so...

Superfood chocolate bark

When I was little, I loved Cadbury's fruit and nut chocolate. The crunchy nuts, the chewy raisins...I don't eat Cadbury's anymore, but I wanted to recreate that memory and taste. The superfood chocolate bark was born. Toasted almonds and cranberries or rainsins in...

Homemade chocolate easter eggs

Easter is around the corner and I can smell a chocolate fest! My girls used Easter as an excuse to get me to make some chocolate. I’ve made eggs before, but never with the white and yellow middle – so I thought, ‘why not’? Thankfully, it turned out well on the first...

Super easy cashew nut date cookies

I’m a big fan of cashews now and I’ve been using them in recipes like pastas, steamed veg, Indian snacks, pesto, etc. I came across a recipe for cashew nut cookies, but they used processed sugar and flour which I didn’t want to use. So I tweaked it a lot and added...

Coconut(ty) chutney

Coconut chutney was always served with dosas or idlis in India when I was growing up. It was made with fresh coconut, roasted peanuts, fresh mint and coriander. I didn’t have most of these at hand. Also, I find organic peanuts in Australia very expensive. So, I used...

Easy, crispy besan slices

I love the challenge of making new gluten free food. This morning I woke up with a mission to make something else besides dosas (lentil and rice pancakes), eggs, museli, buckwheat pancakes...or the same old things. So I decided to make these. With new recipes I find...

The best turmeric cashew nuts

I love turmeric. What's not to love? The colour reminds me of the sun; and I love the sun! It tastes earthy and amazing. It is so very good for you; antimicrobial, antibacterical, anti inflammatory, antioxidant...it truly is a superfood. It is used extensively in...

Besan and buckwheat roti – flatbread

I love to make meals / dishes with veggies mixed in them, so my kids get to eat one thing and they still get loads of nutrients without knowing they are eating their veggies, protein and fiber all rolled into one. I often reach for gluten-free flours and I make mostly...
