Triple trouble, these dark, rich and fudgy triple chocolate almond brownies are way too tempting for anyone supposedly interested in a wholesome diet. Even I can’t kid myself that they are in any way healthy. They are, however, bl**dy delicious and being naturally gluten-free, they’re inclusive too.
Classic Belgian waffles are a real treat, but they’re hard to make at home without a dedicated waffle maker. The Volcano Waffle Maker, available exclusively from Andrew James, is an innovative British design, engineered to cook perfect Belgian style waffles with no fuss and no mess. As well as a recipe from me for delectable spelt waffles with rose raspberry sauce, there’s a chance to win a waffle maker of your very own. Read on.
There’s been enough chocolate decadence on Tin and Thyme this month, so with a pre-Easter cleanse in mind or even a post-Easter one, I’m giving you an easy to make beetroot juice with orange and ginger. This juice is loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and it tastes good too. So what are you waiting for?
Courgette sweetcorn fritters with chilli tomato sauce are just delicious. If you’ve not made sweetcorn fritters before, or if you’ve not tried them with courgette, I urge you to give them a go. They are full of goodness, easy to prepare and make for a nice brunch, lunch or light supper. We enjoyed them last night with the hot tomato sauce and an avocado lettuce salad.
As a Froothie ambassador I’ve been lucky enough to try out a range of blenders. The first one to live in my kitchen was the Optimum 9200A. It’s a powerful beast and until now, has been unrivalled for pure muscle. The Optimum Vac2 is not only strong, it’s also a vacuum blender and I have a handsome red one sitting pretty in my kitchen.
I do love a bowl of soup in the winter. It’s the perfect comfort food. Warming, nutritious and delicious, it’s a great big hug in a bowl. This vegan apple parsnip soup is one of my favourites. It’s lightly spiced, but the real flavour comes from the sweet aromatic parsnips offset by the slight tartness of the apple.
Who doesn’t love a good veggie burger? Not many I’m guessing. I’m a big fan, though I don’t make them as often as I should, or, maybe could. These black chickpea & red quinoa burgers with prunes are easy to make, hold together well and taste super scrumptious. Served with caramelised onions, tomatoes & chilli, they are truly hard to beat.
Prunes and chocolate is a winning, but often overlooked combination. These spiced prune chocolate pots with amaretto are a particularly indulgent way to eat them. They make for a sumptuous dessert and are ideal dinner party fare. With flavours of orange, clove, nutmeg and allspice as well as amaretto, they would also make a good alternative dessert to Christmas pudding during the festive season.
This beetroot leaf green smoothie was one of the recipes I tried when putting Froothie’s new Optimum Nutri Force Extractor through its paces. Read on for a review of this small but powerful blender and grinder set as well as the recipe for a nutritious green breakfast smoothie.
Much as I love my smoothies, sometimes I could really do with a shot of pure juice.

To get us all in the mood, I’m highlighting 10 juicer recipes from juice loving food bloggers.
