Pumpkin, Carrot, Ginger & Turmeric Soup with Fried Curry Leaves

I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting much from this soup, but it really surprised me. The addition of the fried curry leaves lifted it to a new level.  I was really just trying to make a soup out of the vegetables that are on the low histamine list, and I wanted to include turmeric for […]

Summer Zucchini, Corn & Basil (Vegan) Chowder

I miss a proper chowder, and will have to make when I can have seafood again and add some in, but this was a bloody good version on its own, and packed full of goodness. I’ve been struggling the past year or two with allergies/intolerances that I just can’t work out. I break out in […]

Banana & Blueberry Bread

   I generally don’t bake. Baking doesn’t suit my “let’s just add this see how it goes” personality and since I can’t have gluten, eggs or most dairy I just find baking too hard to get right. But there was a banana situation that needed to be dealt with, and I am seriously using any […]
