This year I'm excited to share a sprinkle of NEW plant-based recipes from my cookbook Earth To Table, to inspire, nourish and delight you and your loved ones. I have also selected a few of my plant-based favourites featured in Purely Delicious, Healthy Baking and on the Healthy Chef Recipe App.
To set the tone for a celebratory day, welcome friends and family with my refreshing Peach Bellini!
This antioxidant rich, healthy elixir is sure to refresh and renew your guests.
Summery salads are a beautiful way to decorate your table and delight your guests. My Persian Watermelon Salad w/ Labneh + Blackberry (as pictured above) is glorious to eat and bursting with antioxidant-goodness. And don't forget my Green Pea Salad with a luscious, creamy avocado and mustardy dressing that is sure to dance over everyone's taste buds.
"These show-stopping mains are guaranteed to impress + delight."
I love to go a little overboard and offer a selection of Christmas Desserts. My Orange Olive Oil Cake
sandwiched with maple scented vanilla labneh is a timeless classic and makes a stunning visual impact to your table setting. The table is laced with my Spectacular Cookies
drizzled with dark chocolate and freeze dried raspberries and they make the perfect take-home gift wrapped in jade coloured ribbon. For the traditionalists which includes my husband Paul, my Gluten-Free Christmas Cake
is a showstopper. Abundant with plump muscatel raisins and sun-dried apricots then scented with a hint of vanilla and orange.
"My gluten-free Christmas Cake offering will leave everyone wanting more!"
No Australian Christmas or Holiday table is complete without fresh fruit. My Retro Trifle
is a simple take on an old classic that takes very little time to whip up and is packed with gorgeous berries. A lovely platter of fresh-cut mango cheeks, limes and seasonal fruits and your table is complete!
Food has a magical ability to bring us together. It has the power to heal and delight. Enjoy seasonal ingredients, made simply, to taste purely delicious.
Wishing you all the happiest and safest of holiday seasons.
Love Teresa, Paul, Crystal, Alexis, Ty and Maddie.
