  • 2 avocados, ¼ for each panini
  • 1 large beef tomato, cut into 8 thin slices
  • 4 small handfuls of kale, roughly chopped
  • For the pesto
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds

  • 3 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 3 tbsp water
  • small bunch basil
  • pinch Malden salt

Equipment required:

The perfect sandwich, a classic panini filled with avocado, kale and a homemade pumpkin seed pesto. Toasted sandwiches are one of the best comfort foods and this recipe doesn't disappoint.

To make:

Firstly make the pesto by placing all of the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until smooth.

Slice open your panini and slather the pesto on each slide. Fill the bottom slice with the kale, then the avocado and tomato and place the top of the panini on. Heat a griddle pan and place the panini on it and cook for 2 minutes, applying pressure to the top. Then flip over and toast the bottom, again applying pressure to the top. Enjoy!
Blueberry pancakes with fresh peach and coyo

As featured on I like to mix up breakfasts, sometimes opting for muesli, sometimes eggs, and on special occasions, pancakes. These are so easy to make and served with fresh peach and coyo, they feel wonderfully indulgent.
