Avocado Mayonnaise

There is absolutely no need to miss out on the finer things in life!  Violet crumbles used to be an absolute childhood favourite of mine so this is super exciting to be able to enjoy the deliciousness of the honeycomb and chocolate with every crunch and feel completely guilt-free about it.  This recipe is super clean and will nourish you with every mouthful!

Thyme Infused Coconut Dressing

I can’t put my finger on it, but for me creamy dressings always make a salad feel more wholesome. I avoid eating dairy so this is where coconut yoghurt makes a really good replacement. The lemon adds such a beautiful ‘zing’ that it will be delicious on an vegetables you throw together. 

Ingredients:¼ cup natural coconut yoghurt (no added sugar)½ lemon juiced¼ teaspoon turmeric1 teaspoon fresh thymesalt and pepper to tasteMethod:Place all ingredients together in a bowl and whisk until combined.Add onto any salad you desire or use as a dipping sauceMakes 1/3 cup

Baba Ganoush

Middle Eastern Cuisine has always been a favourite of mine. The food is so fresh and bursting with flavours. I will always have a freshly made dip in the fridge ready as an option for a snack. A little extra time is needed to make my baba ganoush dip due to the initial roasting of the eggplant, but at the end of it, you will be thankful that you made it.

Ingredients2 large eggplants, roasted½ lemon, juiced2 garlic cloves, minced1 teaspoon cumin2 tablespoons tahinisalt and pepper to tasteMethodPreheat oven to 200 degrees. Pin prick the eggplant and place on a baking tray in the oven, roasting for 35-45 minutes until the eggplant begins to look sunken.Place eggplant in a bowl of cold water once removed from oven and wait a few minutes.Once eggplant has cooled slightly, peel the skin away and add the flesh to a blender.Add all other ingredients and blend until nice and smooth. Adjust seasoning as required.Makes approximately 1.5 cups
