Quinoa and Hazelnut Salad

  • Serves 1


50g blanched hazelnuts
50g mixed red and white quinoa
100g cucumber
50g pomegranates
½ lemon
2 tbsp argan oil
Cover the quinoa with boiling water in a saucepan, along with the lemon juice and a little salt. Allow to boil for 12 minutes, or until all the water has been absorbed.
While the quinoa cooks, place the hazelnuts on a baking tray and put it in a 200C oven for 8-10 minutes.
Chop cucumber into quarters, then into eighths. Slice out the seedy central part and then slice the eighths into thin pieces.
Once cooked, allow the quinoa and hazelnuts to cool, then stir the argan oil, pomegranates, chopped cucumber, hazelnuts, salt and pepper into the quinoa.

Deliciously Ella Sweet Potato Brownies recipe

Deliciously Ella’s Sweet Potato Brownies recipe

Sweet Potato Brownies


2 medium to large sweet potatoes (600g)
2/3 cup ground almonds (80g)
½ cup buckwheat or brown rice flour (100g)
14 medjool dates
5 tbsp raw cacao powder
4 tbsp pure maple syrup
Pinch of salt
Start by pre-heating the oven to 180C, before peeling the sweet potatoes and cutting them into chunks. Place the sweet potatoes into a steamer for twenty minutes, or until they become soft. Once ready, add the potatoes to a food processor with the pitted dates and blend until a smooth, creamy mixture forms.
Put the remaining ingredients in a bowl, before stirring in the sweet potato and date mixture.
Place the mixture into a lined baking dish and cook for around twenty to thirty minutes, until you can pierce the brownie cake with a fork, bringing it out dry.
Remove the tray and allow it to cool for about ten minutes before cutting them into squares.
