Chocolate Kūmara Cake

My long time go-to trick for getting moisture into gluten-free cakes (which are notorious for being dry) is to use fruit or vegetable purees. Here sweet orange kūmara puree not only adds moisture but also a little sweetness too, meaning you can get away with only using a tiny amount of sugar. If you like […]

Chilli + Soy Eggplant with Tofu

Caramelised Pineapple + Lime Sundae with Coconut Macaroons

Creamy Kohlrabi Soup

Recipe and Images by Emma Galloway My love for kohlrabi runs deep. While sadly still not the most well known of vegetables, I was lucky enough to grow up eating homegrown kohlrabi as my parents had an extensive veggie garden. If you’re someone who fights over the broccoli stalk (me!), then you’ll love kohlrabi’s crunchy […]
