Sweet Onion & Kale Pizza

This is a deliciously different pizza topping - instead of the usual tomato based and toppings - we’re going in with sweet sticky onions, kale that turns toasted and crunchy and salty Violife mediterranean block!

We love this served with a big salad as a main course or cut up into slithers for nibbles with a refreshing drink!

Rustle Up Some Sizzlin' Veggie Sides!

A side of veg may have had a bad rep in the past - a slightly dull, soggy pile of boiled veg you feel obliged to eat to tot up your veg count. Well not anymore!

Sides of veggies should be as exciting and delicious as the main event - all it takes is a couple of tips and simple recipes. Roasting, stir-frying and charing all keep in the goodness of the veggies and add a bit of char or golden caramelisation around the edges adding scrumptious flavour… Add some citrus, herbs & spices or oil and vinegar and you’ve got yourself some super Jazzy sides everyone with be fighting over!

HOW TO EAT MORE FRUIT & VEG!

We all want to eat more fruit and veg! We know it’s good for us! But how do we do it? And more importantly, how to we add more more of the good stuff onto our plates without thinking we have to give up the food we love?

Guess what - it’s not about giving up the foods that tickle your fancy, it’s just about adding more fruit and veg and finding a little bit of balance! Enjoy your pizza with a big salad or a Friday night burger with a delicious, crunchy slaw.

Oven Roast Sweet Potato Fries

Who doesn’t love chips?!

Sweet potato chips and fries have become mainstream as our beloved traditional version and it’s super simple to make your own. The lovely sweet flavour of sweet potato makes a really good base flavour for spices so we love coating them in whatever spice mix goes with the other dishes we want to serve… from Cajun, Creole and Chinese 5 spice to Tex Mex, Moroccan or Garham Masala - anything works! Be inventive!
