This is the salad I eat when I am being really healthy. Arame seaweed is really good for you, it’s full of vitamins and antioxidants, it boosts the immune system, is anti-inflammatory and it’s full of iodine which can help regulate your hormones. It’s great for your hair, skin and nails too and can help flush toxins out of your system. I serve this on its own or with tuna sashimi that has been seared quickly on all sides in a pan with a little oil then sliced like sashimi.
asian-ish fried rice with coconut, lime and eggs
I knocked up this store cupboard recipe when I had a cold and wanted to make something that was packed with garlic, chili, ginger and vitamins that would help me get better. A friend eventually came over and tried it and started to make it for her family; she loved it so much she wanted me to share it on the blog. It’s super tasty comfort food. So, here’s the recipe.
salmon tartare with avocado and soy
This recipe is so fresh and healthy and makes an easy no cook starter or light main. I based it on a starter I had in a restaurant recently and it was so delicious I had to make it for myself. Sometimes I also serve it with crispy onions as I like the crunchiness and flavour with the creamy avo and salmon.
japanese fine beans
These delicious peanutty fine beans were part of a sushi meal I had at a Japanese restaurant in Spitalfields. They went so well with the sushi and were the highlight of the meal, so I have try to guess what the sauce was, and after a few attempts I think I’ve nailed it and think it’s just as delicious. It’s an easy recipe and the sweet and savoury sauce is sublime…and makes an excellent side dish..do try it.
200g approx of fine beans topped and tailed
1 heaped tablespoon of peanut butter
1 teaspoon of soya sauce
1 teaspoon of maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon of toasted sesame oil
1/4 garlic clove chopped
1/4 teaspoon of grated fresh ginger
