Cacao and Peppermint Trifle

Cacao and Peppermint Trifle

By the time Christmas rolls around in Australia it is 35 degrees and the traditional dishes in Europe are out of the question. Enter Christmas in July where you can enjoy all of the delicious Christmas foods without suffering heat exhaustion. Trifle is always a Christmas favourite. Some of the weird biscuit bases my mum used were pretty questionable, so I’ve skipped those, and the booze, to create a delicious dairy-free alternative that everyone can enjoy (including the kids).

Warm Cinnamon Breakfast Smoothie

Warm Cinnamon Breakfast Smoothie

If your patient enough to soak these oats in milk the night before, that 5 minutes of prep makes this recipe incredibly creamy. As a sufferer of anaemia, I love to add molasses as a sweetener because it provides a dose of iron. Aside from that, it’s reminiscent of gingerbread cookies, which needs no further explanation! So, good.

Rhubarb + Apple Pie

Rhubarb + Apple Pie

Winter puddings aren’t complete without an apple pie of some sort. My mother-in-law would pick blackberries in the countryside, and put them in her apple pies. While I don’t have a blackberry bush around the corner, the sharpness of rhubarb compliments the sweet apples perfectly. Significantly less pastry than most pies, but deliciously satisfying all the same.

Chewy on the top, soft in the middle, with a layer of the delicious sauce waiting for you at the bottom makes – few puddings can top this one! Serve with a drizzle of homemade custard for extra indulgence on a cold night.

Charred Vegetables and Smokey Hummus

If you haven’t used liquid smoke before, you’re in for a real treat. You can find it at most speciality grocers, and it adds an amazing BBQ flavour to sauces, meats, soups and more. A little goes a long way. Great if you don’t have a BBQ to hand and end up doing these in the oven, like me in my little city apartment!

Did you know chickpeas are a great source of protein for vegans and veggies? They’re also great on the fibre front – so you can stay fuller for longer. WINNING.

A twist on the classic barbecue dessert, this one is spiked with that amazing salty-sweet combo with the introduction of tamari almonds (YUM!) and a pinch ops sea salt, complimented by deliciously sweet maple syrup.
