Nourishing Bowls

I find this meal easy, healthy, tasty, and filling. There’s so many different variations of throwing together a yummy nourish bowl. 

Brown rice
Veg: mixed peppers, broccoli, spinach, aubergine (or any veg in your fridge)
 Black beans
Spices: Cayenne Pepper, Garlic powder, salt, pepper, tumeric, paprika


1.Preheat oven to around 200 degrees celsius.

2. Drain and rinse chickpeas, throw into a baking tray and add olive oil, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Put chickpeas into the oven until nice and crispy.

3. Cook brown rice and quinoa and set aside.

4. Fry the onion in a pan with olive oil/coconut oil and then add all veg and add all spices. Put a lid over the pan and allow the veg to cook. You might need to add a little bit of water.

5. Add in black beans.

6. Once everything is cooked put it all into a bowl.

• Avocado
• Homemade sauce: mix 2 heaped tablespoons of greek yoghurt, heaped teaspoon of dijon mustard, basil paste/finely chopped basil, salt and pepper to make the sauce.

Cook extra brown rice and quinoa so that you can make another bowl the next day. #mealprep

Combine the beef with all the marinade ingredients. 

Combine the stir-fry sauce ingredients. Set aside for later.

Combine the dipping sauce ingredients. Set aside until ready to serve.

Heat the vegetable oil in a wok over high heat. Add the beef.

Sear for about half a minute and then toss. Repeat another 3 times until the beef is starting to char.

Add the onions and toss through for a few seconds.

Add the stir-fry sauce mixture and toss for another half a minute (for medium beef) or longer for well done. Turn the heat off and allow the beef to rest in the pan for about a minute.

In the meantime, spread the lettuce leaves out on a serving plate. Top with slices of tomato. Then top with the beef. Serve with steamed rice and the dipping sauce.

During the lock down I had put forward a proposal every Friday night was going to be a themed evening. We would all choose a theme and from there everyone had to choose their own a dish that we would all make them together. Here is the one that scored the highest on Cambodian Night.


PS simple and quick! 


500g sirloin steak, cut into cubes

1 tbsp vegetable oil

1 red onion, cut into wedges

1 tomato, sliced

Spring onions to serve

steamed rice/Noodles to serve


3 tbsp lime juice

1 tsp ground pepper*

1 tsp sea salt


1 tbsp oyster sauce

1 tbsp soy sauce

2 tsp sweet dark soy sauce

1 tsp ground pepper corn

1 tsp cornflour

½ tsp baking soda

2 garlic cloves, finely grated

Granola Bars

OMG these are goooood!

Perfect for that sweet craving or as a yummy snack during the day. It goes perfectly with a nice cup of coffee or tea! Super easy, so tasty and so worth it!


  1 ¾ cups oats
  1 cup sliced almonds (or any chopped nuts)
  1 cup coconut flakes
  1 Tbsp chia seeds or flax seeds
  1 cup pitted dates, roughly chopped
  ½ cup natural peanut butter
  ¼ cup honey
  ¼ tsp himalayan salt
  ½ tsp cinnamon
  1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
  4 pieces of dark chocolate (optional)


Prepare a nonstick baking pan/dish with baking paper or  non stick spray.

Heat oven to 350°F or 180°C

Combine oats and nuts on a baking sheet and toast in oven for 10 minutes and then put into a large bowl. Add coconut to baking sheet and toast until golden, and then place into the bowl with oats and nuts and add chia seeds.

In the meantime you can process the dates in a food processor until a thick paste forms. Combine the date mixture, peanut butter, honey, salt, and cinnamon in a small pan over a medium heat.

Cook until everything has combined into a paste like mixture (about 2 minutes). Then take off the heat and stir in vanilla.

Add date mixture to oat mixture and mix until everything has combined (best to use your hands to combine the mixture).


Place the mixture into the prepared baking pan and press into an even layer.

Optional: melt chocolate and drizzle over the bars.

Chill bars at least 1 hour before cutting. (Do not miss this step because you won’t be able to cut the bars nicely. It will be tempting to try because it smells so good!
Store in a Tupperware in the fridge and enjoy whenever!

Enjoy and #TreatYoSelf
