What's in My Kitchen?


The kitchen is the room of the house I probably spend most of my time in. I love to cook healthy, nourishing & indulgent food, & I find cooking is one just another way to express myself creatively. I lived in Italy until I was 5 so I have an appreciation for rich meals with lots of flavour, I am also a vegan & have been on this journey for 5 years, so bringing my culture, beliefs & love of food together is really special. 

Staples

- Legumes (lentils, beans, chickpea's).

- Nuts & seeds  (almonds, cashews, buckwheat, sunflower seeds, pine nuts, pumpkin seeds).

What I Do Weekly 

- I soak nuts, rice & legumes weekly. I make a cashew or almond cheese each week that I use as a dip, 'sour cream', or 'cheese' within various recipes. Soaking also breaks down the enzymes that our gut has trouble digesting. 

- I make a fresh batch of kombutcha weekly for optimal gut health. I learnt how to to this from my good friend Hayley from Healthy Living co

- I dry my own herbs cooking & for rituals. 

- I am attempting to sprout lentils, that shit is hard! 

Rituals

- I have a lot of herbs that I use for various seasonal celebrations such as full moons, equinoxes etc. 

- I drink living tea from Global Tea Hut daily. My favourite tea is Pu-erh tea, which is very earthy & great for digestion. 

- I make my own candles often, so I often dry different flowers to use within my candles. 

- I love to make my own smudge sticks with sage, rose petals & lavender. 

Cook Books

- I LOVE Jamie Oliver, & it may be hard to find vegan recipes within his books, I love his simple way of cooking & find it quite easy to adapt a vegetarian recipe to make it vegan.
