FODMAP friendly lemon and lavender loaf

An idea I've been mulling over for a while now, I combine the zest of two lemons along with a few droplets of natural flavoured lavender to create this delicately floral and supremely spongey loaf cake ideal for spring baking. As with many of my baking recipes, I take inspiration from Ottolenghi's dessert cookbook 'Sweet,' using his lemon and poppyseed loaf cake recipe to inform this FODMAP friendly creation. Instead of double cream, I use Oatly's completely dairy-free (and vegan) single cream for a hearty sponge.

As a self-professed cheese lover, the more pungent, the tastier.

Serves 6 Prep time: 10… Continue reading FODMAP friendly soups: broccoli and blue cheese

Mustard and balsamic vinegar kale with toasted seeds

I'll preface this caption with a shout out to one of my closest friends who introduced me to the wonders of kale. Thank you. Eaten raw, I prepare the kale by massaging a balsamic vinegar dressing mixed with garlic infused oil and classic English mustard. Taking inspiration from Ottolenghi's legendary cookbook, Simple, I toast pumpkin seeds and flax seeds in a maple syrup and olive oil dressing that gives the kale additional crunch and texture.

Orange, saffron and walnut polenta cake

Celebrating Iranian new year naturally calls for a cake that contains saffron (OBVIOUSLY!). This year, I decided to combine the zesty flavour of orange with the mildly floral and complementary taste of saffron. I chose polenta because it’s supremely light yet substantial and – you guessed it –  already gluten free. Serves 10 Prep time:… Continue reading Orange, saffron and walnut polenta cake
