Aubergine, Tomato & Sweet Potato Curry
Many years ago I was fortunate to holiday with good friends in Kenya. These lovely people are of Indian origin, born in Kenya and have an amazing circle of friends and family both at their Mombasa and Diani beach residences. Anyhow, one of the "aunties" is such an awesome cook. Her version of this is far superior to mine but would she relinquish a recipe? Heck no.... For now this is as close as I'm going to get to that. Happy with the result, it's fiery; creamy and packed with delicious ...
Grain free Granola
"I can't believe it's not granola"
Crunchy nuts with gorgeous dried fruit, coconut and flaxseed. Really delicious on its own or, my favourite, with chopped fresh fruit and some Greek yoghurt. Brilliant power snack!

1 cup of chopped dried fruit. I used figs and prunes.
3 tbsp flaxseed.
3 tbsp desiccated coconut.
1 tbsp coconut oil.

Stir everything together until ...
Roasted Beetroot & Sweet Potato Soup
I'm not sure how best to describe the flavours but here goes... Earthy richness from the beetroot, sweetness from the potato and garlic and just enough spice and chilli to give a kick. Perfect on this rainy thunderstorm filled day in Corfu!
Roasting everything in a hot oven gives an intensity you'd never get from simply sautéing. Simple, delicious, healthy and inexpensive.
1 tbsp of oil, I used coconut oil.
1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut in chunks.
3 medium sized ...
Smokey Tuna Dip
I know, there's tons of recipes for tuna dip but most are mushy and wet in my opinion. I've been making it this way for years, texture is important in food!
Smoked paprika works beautifully however if you can get hold of a bottle of "liquid smoke" wow, takes food to a completely new dimension.
Main ingredients: A medium sized tin of tuna, drained. A small tin of sweetcorn, drained. 2 finely chopped spring onions. A few chopped caper berries or gherkins. About 4 tblsp of full fat cream ...
