Pass the Turmeric! While the days are beautifully warm the nights are saying that Autumn is well and truly here. I'm taking proactive measures against cold & flu with some of nature's most powerful immunity boosters.
These, the best kale chips ever, are so easy to make you'll be saying "is that it?" before you even get started. Kale Chips are fantastic to have on hand when you are craving a salty snack, and they are a brilliant way to eat kale if you are not normally a fan. I admit it, sometimes it can be pretty intense.
Despite being graced with some delicious calamari, this is a pretty plant powerful meal. I have a handful of veggies that I just love to eat with seafood: peppery rocket, red chilli, clean and crunchy green veggies like beans, snow peas and asparagus, and of course, my latest favourite thing, juicy, crunchy raw fennel. There's nothing quite like the licorish taste of fresh fennel and I think it works a treat in juices, smoothies, salads and with seafood! So, I threw them all into this dish with a bunch of lime juice and a homemade vegan tatare sauce and whammo, dinner is served!
