Wake Me Up Broth by Amelia Freer

Many of my clients recoil at the thought of vegetables at breakfast but this nutrient dense vegetable broth is a beautiful way to start the day, although that’s not to say that you cannot enjoy it at any time for a natural energy burst. Chicken stock, or bone broth, is a hydrating way to get aContinue reading

Herby Green Bread by Amelia Freer

This delicious green bread is more cakey than bready in texture, because it’s gluten-free. It’s really nice toasted for breakfast with a poached egg, but as it will fall apart quite easily (because of the lack of gluten), it won’t toast very well in a toaster. Instead, put it on a baking sheet under theContinue reading

Heritage Tomato Salad by Amelia Freer

Be sure to use the ripest and freshest tomatoes that you can find for optimum flavour and texture. If buying from a supermarket, chose ‘on the vine’ and leave them to really ripen in a bowl for a couple of days. Tomatoes increase our natural melanin production – essential for protecting our skin in the summer months. With addedContinue reading

Poached Chicken, Crunchy Vegetables, Herb Dressing by Amelia Freer

I used to be put off by poaching chicken as I feared it was more complicated than my simple fried version. But it’s actually much easier, because while the chicken poaches you can prepare the rest of the food. These days I often poach 3 or 4 chicken breasts at a time, then keep themContinue reading

Fish Fingers with Broad Beans

Here’s my take on a British classic. Use any variety of fish that takes your fancy. I wanted to get the perfect crunch – obviously without using gluten, but also without using almond and coconut, which has been so overdone. So I was thrilled that this red lentil-based coating gives the perfect texture to theseContinue reading

Poached Fish with Spinach by Amelia Freer

I like this one because it’s a one-pan dish – you will need a pan with a lid. You can use a can of tomatoes instead of using passata if you wish. When it comes to buying passata, there are lots of varieties available, some of which have additives, so it’s worth reading the label. AlwaysContinue reading
