Mexican Jalapeno and Lime Sweetcorn Salad

Mexican Jalapeno and Lime Sweetcorn Salad

Being a massive fan of sweetcorn, I naturally love any recipe that has corn in it. However as I have mentioned before, I avoid eating sweetcorn because I can’t be sure if any of it is GMO free after watching GMO:OMG on Netflix. So whilst I haven’t completely cut it out, I rarely eat it now. For that reason when I do eat it, I want it to be really good. This mexican jalapeño and lime sweetcorn salad does the trick.

Hummus – Three quick and easy ways

Hummus – Three quick and easy ways

I love hummus and therefore naturally i love flavoured hummus. I mean it can be a meal on it’s own, can’t it? Sorry I know it’s the healthier way, but I don’t do carrot sticks and hummus. It has to be turkish flat bread or griddled pitta. Give me that over a bag of Doritos and sour cream dip any day. So in this post are my favourite ways to make quick hummus. This is the quick method and therefore I have taken shortcuts but it is still delicious. The great thing about hummus is that it can be spiced up according to your individual taste and that is exactly what I have done here with some very simple additions.

Freekeh and Quinoa with lemon garlic yoghurt and pomegranate

Freekeh and quinoa with lemon garlic yoghurt and pomegranate

What a mouthful! Freekeh and Quinoa with a lemon garlic yoghurt and pomegranate is awesome! I love nutty, chewy, smoky and light freekeh. When i first heard of it, i just thought it was another healthy grain that was being pushed on us and it sounded a bit freaky to me..Sorry i can’t help it! It’s actually pronounced farrik or freekkah. So why the e? It’s like all these silent k’s and p’s and don’t even get me started on the spelling of Leicester (the city i live in) pronounced Lester. Why all the extra letters. SO egged on.
