If you have lots of raspberries you need to use up try this fabulous, healthy jam recipe. Chia seeds are a great way to thicken berry jams. When making fruit jam with chia seeds, the seeds do all the work. Instead of cooking fruit down, relying on pectin, and then tons of sugar to help it set, all we need to do is mash up the fruit over a low heat with a few tablespoons of chia seeds.
This is a great recipe which can be adapted for other vegetables too. I also use the cheese and sauce to make a raw lasagne with long strips of courgettes in layers. I love using my Lurch Spiraliser for this recipe but if you don’t have one you can use a swivel peeler instead.
This is such a simple salad – rich and creamy and perfect for summer salad days. I also find this is a big hit with children too. The combination of sweet apples and grapes with a nut dressing and crunchy celery plus plenty of greens makes this a hearty filling option.
This recipe is very popular with clients and my own children. You can easily ditch the syrups and juice in sauces, and maximise the flavour with tangy rice vinegar, rich tomato paste and plenty of spices. Adding a few chunks of pineapple provides a wonderful texture and natural sweetness without the need to resort to added syrups. If you need a little extra sweetness you can add a little xylitol or pinch of stevia but as the pineapple is sweet you may find you don’t need it.
