Sides, Sauces, Dips

Here you will find a selection of my favourite sides, sauces and dips which are acceptable to eat at any time of day for any occasion: breakfast (maybe not!), lunch, dinner, picnics, parties, platters, you name it! Many of my lunches also make great sides!


Ultimate Vegan Pesto

This is a great pesto recipe which is vegan as well as nut free, so perfect for those with allergies. It’s made with toasted sunflower seeds and nutritional yeast!

Roasted Aubergine Houmous

I absolutely adore aubergines! This dip combines roasted aubergine, chickpeas, garlic, lemon and tahini, with cumin, smoked paprika and a hint of cayenne pepper.

Moroccan-Spiced Houmous

A creamy Moroccan-inspired houmous with cumin, coriander, turmeric, ginger and a kick of chilli, along with zesty lemon, roasted garlic and hints of sweet sultanas!

Fresh Tomato Salsa with Tortilla Chips

This makes a perfect sharing bowl to enjoy with family and friends in the sunshine! Fresh tomato salsa served with crisp paprika and herb chips. So quick and simple but so healthy and delicious.

Garlic & Herb Butter Bean Dip

I am a massive fan of creamy garlic dips, so I really wanted to create a vegan aioli style dip made with butter beans and dried herbs. Butter beans give dips a wonderful creaminess which works perfectly in this recipe.
