Vegetarian Moussaka

A classic Moussaka is a dish made by layering aubergine with a meat filling and topped off with a creamy  sauce, baked to golden perfection. It is one of the most widely recognized of all Greek dishes and oneof the most filling! A word of warning, this is definitely a meal to make at the weekend. While it can be time consuming to prepare, I think you will find that once complete it is a very worthwhile endeavour. I served this with a light salad and a glass of wine!

Roasted Cauliflower, Chickpeas and Tomatoes

The cauliflower was the star of the show for me this week. Fast becoming the new healthy carb free alternative to the humble potato (delicious mashed) and rice (grated and steamed), I decided to roast it. Inspired by the influx of nutritionists and healthy living gurus, I cooked mine in coconut oil which is known for its immune boosting properties and can also help to control blood sugar levels.

Beetroot and Chocolate Brownies

On doing some research I discovered quite a few recipes available for this and the methods and measurements are all very similar. I've added a little ginger to the mix to give these little brownies a bit of a kick. They taste great warm and fresh from the oven with ice cream but they seem to taste even nicer the next day!
