Tipsy tart snack balls

Tipsy tart snack balls are exactly what my weekend needs, skipping the shot of booze and devouring them none the less. A healthy sugar hit with crunch and a taste of home. These are a mini version of a beloved dessert from South Africa and in mini I mean just the right amount to get that sugar (plus) fix.

Raw Matcha lime tarts

Matcha lime tarts are the perfect pretty treat for Valentine's day or any other day to show the ones you love that you mean it. These pretty tarts are gluten-free, not too sweet and have a bit of tang that works just so well with the matcha. Not only are these tarts healthy and super easy to make but they are topped with the superfood tea powder for an added zing.

Cajun burger salad bowl

Cajun burger salad bowl is the perfect light lunch or dinner. This protein-packed meal is super filling and ticks all of the boxes when you're looking for something easy and light. I love sweet potato and adding this to the burger, with little pops of white beans in between every bite is just perfection. Not only is this burger patty the real deal, but also the loaded fries salad that goes along with it.

Gluten free lemon poppy seed muffins

Gluten free Poppy seed muffins are perfectly tangy, crunchy, soft and delectable for a cold winters morning or afternoon. Citrus fruits are in abundance right now, and everything lemony is my current craving situation. What's even more special about these is the nuttiness that the poppy seeds provide alongside the beautiful add on of almond and spelt flour.

Tangy Lentil pumpkin Bobotie

Tangy Lentil pumpkin Bobotie is a must-make recipe for veggie lovers and meat-lover alike. This recipe is one that I have been making so many times over the couple of years that I have lost count. Normally it's made with meat, but in this case, I added brown lentils that work even better, because it makes it super starchy and a plant-based protein powerhouse meal to boot.

Chocolate s'mores cake

Chocolate s' mores cake is certainly the way to spend your holidays. My son and I are bigg fans of the marshmallow frosting and I swear if there is anything that makes this cake even more amazing is the fact that this cake is plant-based and topped with hazelnuts and chopped chocolate for extra measure.

Miso roasted carrot butternut soup

Miso Roasted carrot butternut soup is such an amazing twist to a classic butternut soup. I have fallen in love with white miso paste. I have recently tried it for the first time, where was I you might ask? hiding under a rock or something, but this paste honestly is so so good! it's subtile, adds a bit of sweetness and unami to the soup. Especially with the gomasio sprinkle and the other toppings, this soup is the bomb!

Vegan Rye oat rusks

Vegan Rye oat rusks are such a delish treat mid-afternoon or breakfast on the go. This breakfast treat is a staple in many South African households. They range from buttermilk, bran raisin and the list goes on. Traditionally they are filled with butter, eggs, and sugar for that added pa-wow for the morning mill, but I prefer to start the day on a lighter and healthier side.

Coffee banana crumb cake

Coffee banana crumb cake is a delish snack for those sweet tooth afternoons. What's best about this cake is the fact that this cake is banana bread's good looking cousin and all of those crumbs add's just the perfect tantalizing taste that you need for a late afternoon pick me up.
