Beluga Lentil Zottarella Salad with Fresh Turmeric Vinaigrette

Thursday, June 23, 2016 | © 2016 |

Tiny, black and round with a rich earthy flavour and chewy texture, beluga lentils are named for the caviar they resemble. They hold their shape and firm texture when cooked, making them a good choice for salads. You can easily replace them with French green lentils. Fresh turmeric is the star in this anti-inflammatory dressing that adds incredible flavour and texture to this comforting salad.

Fresh Turmeric VinaigretteSalad
  • 100 ml Olive oil
  • 2-inch Fresh turmeric, peeled and grated
  • 1 tbsp Maple syrup
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 tbsp White balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp Black pepper, ground
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt
  • 200 g Beluga black lentils, rinsed
  • 150 g Zottarella minis
  • 120 g Baby spinach
  • 1-2 Peaches, stoned and sliced
  • Basil and parsley
  1. To make the dressing, combine all the ingredients in a jar and shake until well combined. Chill until ready for use.
  2. Fill a medium pot with 700 ml water and bring it to a boil. Add in rinsed black lentils and simmer for 12-15 minutes or until tender but still firm. Drain immediately through a fine strainer and rinse briefly with cool water. Drain again, set aside and allow to cool.
  3. In a large bowl, toss the cooled lentils with half of the dressing. Add the zottarella minis, peaches, parsley and basil and toss briefly. Divide the spinach leaves on two serving plates and spoon the lentil salad over. Serve with the additional dressing. | © 2016 | | © 2016 |

No Bake Almond Butter Tart with Speculoos Cookie Crust

Thursday, June 16, 2016 | © 2016 |

This features a creamy, rich roasted almond butter-ricotta cheese filling in a no bake speculoos cookie crust. I have used homemade roasted almond butter rather than the peanut butter used in the original recipe, but any other nut butter will also work. Also, the recipe called for chocolate ganache as the topping, but I just simply garnished the tarts with a few drizzles of melted white chocolate and some chopped pistachio nuts.

  • 220 g Speculoos cookies
  • 60 g Butter, melted
  • 200 g Ricotta cheese
  • 180 g Homemade roasted almond butter
  • 1/3 tsp Vanilla powder
  • 2 tbsp Coconut oil, softened
  • 10 drop Vanilla-flavoured liquid stevia
  • White chocolate, chopped
  • Pistachio nuts, chopped
  1. Finely crush cookies in a food processor or blender. Melt butter. In a bowl stir the melted butter and crushed cookies together. Firmly press down cookie mixture into two 12-cm tart pans or one 24-cm pan. Place in the refrigerator while making the filling.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the ricotta cheese, almond butter, vanilla powder, coconut oil and liquid stevia together until fluffy with an electric mixer.
  3. Scrape the mixture into the tart shells and smooth the surface with a spatula. Return to the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight.
  4. Melt the white chocolate in a microwave and drizzle over the tarts. Garnish with pistachio nuts. | © 2016 | | © 2016 |

Buttermilk Spelt Emmer Dinner Rolls

Thursday, June 09, 2016 | © 2016 | | © 2016 |

I like to play around with rich, sweet and nutty ancient grains when baking bread, but you can use modern wheat flour instead. Emmer is also called Farro and quite similar in flavour of Einkorn. This recipe makes 6-8 rolls depending on the size you want. You could also bake this in a loaf pan for a tasty sandwich bread.

  • 190 g Buttermilk, well shaken and room-temperature
  • 150 g Rye sourdough starter, 100% hydration
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt
  • 200 g Organic spelt bread flour
  • 100 g organic emmer berries, ground into flour
  • 2 tsp Coconut sugar
  • 5 g Active dry yeast
  1. Measure all the ingredients and place, in the order listed, into your bread pan. Select the dough setting. Start the machine.
  2. Once dough setting is complete, remove dough from bread machine and place on a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into 6 or 8 pieces. Shape each into a ball and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and set aside for 45 minutes until doubled in size.
  3. Pour a cup of water into the roasting tray at the bottom of the oven and preheat it to 210C/420F and pour. Bake the bread for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. | © 2016 | | © 2016 |
