Sri Lankan Cashew Curry

"I was lucky enough to travel to this beautiful and exotic country for the first time last year, however, I'd fallen in love with the food long before, when my good friend introduced me to the cuisine while at medical school. One of the first dishes I tried was this gorgeous cashew curry. Rich in flavour, this bowl of goodness pairs beautifully with simple brown rice but also tastes fantastic on its own. Cashews are a great source of resistant starch that releases sugar into the bloodstream much more slowly than potatoes or other starchy foods, and helps boost our community of gut microbes."

Seasonal Soup With Red Pesto

"The simplest meals are often the most satisfying. Instead of having to remember complicated cooking steps and intricate techniques, you can focus on what's important - flavour! This dish is incredibly versatile and straightforward, it delivers so much in the way of nutrition, it's exceptionally pleasing to the eye and is a perfect dish for the family. You can mix up the vegetables to suit your taste or depending on what's in season. You'll be eating the rainbow in no time."
