Parsnip & Autumn Apple Soup

I’m sorry to say that I have been neglecting Graze for a while, but happy to say that I have a gorgeous new recipe for fall! It seemed to happen overnight – the leaves changing colour, the days shorter, the chill in the air. And then I found myself making soup again! It’s apple season […]

Banana-Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Okay here we go, the easiest ice cream in the world – dairy free, gluten free, vegan, etc…. AND you only need one ingredient: bananas! There is something about frozen bananas that when you blend them up in a food processor, they take on the form and texture of ice cream. This is truly an […]

Homemade Almond Milk

Why have I not done this before?! Homemade almond milk is the most delicious thing I’ve ever made in less than 5 minutes. It’s creamy, nourishing, smooth, satisfying, and has that real almond flavour – the one that almond extract tries to replicate and can’t. I will never buy almond milk again. It doesn’t come […]

Flourless Nut Butter Banana Muffins

A few weeks ago in Cape Town, I posted a recipe for my Flourless Almond Butter Bread – which contains no sugar, oil, or gluten, and is full of wholesome, healthy ingredients. I experimented with this recipe by turning it into muffins and adding just a little bit of sugar to make it more of […]

Flourless Almond Butter Picnic Bread

Yesterday was one of the hottest days of the year in Cape Town, ending in a spectacular sunset and picnic on the beach. After spending the majority of the day in the ocean, we watched the sun dip into the golden horizon, colouring the sky bright pink and orange, and nibbled on all sorts of delicious […]

Say I Love You with Chocolate Banana Bread

Nothing is really known about the third century Roman Saint, Valentine, other than his name and the fact that he died on February 14th. Some say Valentine’s Day was created as an attempt to supersede the pagan holiday, Lupercalia. Others believe in the legend that St. Valentine refused to sacrifice to pagan gods and was […]

In Season: Baked Nectarines with Cinnamon Butter

A lovely box of summer stone fruit arrived at my place the other day: gorgeous, ripe, organic nectarines from a nearby farm. There is nothing better than freshly picked summer fruit. It’s like you can taste the sunshine in your mouth! Perfectly soft and sweet, with the most incredible aroma. We’ve been enjoying them all […]

Super Healthy Cocoa Tahini Hemp Balls

These little balls are incredibly satisfying for a sweet craving. They’re nice and rich, chocolatey, and the best part? They’re super healthy. Hemp is one of the most dense plant sources of protein, omega-3s and fibre while peanut butter is high in healthy fats as well as potassium. And Tahini! It is a marvellous thing […]

Dieta side effect – smoothie bowls

It has been over a week of being on a ‘dieta’ now and the verdict is: eating whole, mostly plant-based foods really does make you feel like a million bucks! I mean it. It feels incredible! No alcohol, caffeine (including green tea), refined carbohydrates or sugars, processed or deep-fried foods, gluten, or excess salt, and I […]

It’s high in potassium and vitamin B6 from the banana and rich in antioxidants from the blueberry and raw cocoa. And most importantly, it’s made with one of the world’s most superior plant sources of protein: hemp. Hemp seeds […]

Inspired by Gogo’s Deli: Breakfast eggs & homemade ricotta

Yesterday I visited a charming little deli in Newlands called Gogo’s, a small family-run farm shop that specializes not only in grass-fed meats (including Happy Hog bacon), but the most delicious organic cheeses and yogurts. I stocked up on lovely stinging nettle goat’s feta, free-range eggs from Paarl and Stellenbosch, and blueberry and granadilla goat’s […]

As the summer days get hotter, the meals get lighter. This super healthy and fresh salad recipe is great for a quick dinner on hot summer evenings.
