‘The good thing’ – traditional Cypriot gluten free polenta

I’ve been on a Cypriot cooking bender this week, and it’s safe to say I’m not stopping – especially not with this syrupy, zesty dessert! A traditional pudding, typically made from semolina (but replaced it with polenta so it’s gluten free), with a hearty amount of sugar that makes for an irresistible treat. Although, the orange zest and juice helps to cut through the sweetness, so it’s not saccharine.

Buckwheat pizza with spicy shakshuka-esque sauce & feta cheese

My love of shakshuka extends the traditional Israeli–adopted-Western hangover cure. Instead, I’ve decided to use it as a tasty base to my homemade buckwheat pizza. Inspired by pioneering FODMAP blogger Emma Hatcher, the texture of this herby pizza is much like crispy pitta – thin, versatile and light. Covered with my homemade spicy sauce, this effortless pizza makes for a perfect accompaniment at any chilled-out dinner party.
