Sun Dried Tomato & Chickpea Burgers

Dinner is almost always a salad or some sort of left-overs situation in our home. That’s just the way we like it here. A big bowl of vegetables, a grain and lots of tahini drizzled on top. A typical example of our current dinner would be a crunchy green salad (with lots of cucumber, radish and sugar snaps), some grilled asparagus, quinoa and tahini. So simple but so, so good.

There are some days when we just crave something more, something a little different (that doesn’t necessarily

Fennel & Cucumber Juice

Any tea with fennel in it, I’m a fan. I find the taste incredibly grounding. It’s one of those flavours that just tastes like it must be doing you some good. I have numerous cups of herbal tea a day and there’s usually at least one blend with some fennel in there. It has a liquorice taste which I know a lot of people might find a little difficult to take, it can be one of those love it or hate it things. In this juice I’ve tried to balance out that flavour with some
