  • 60g ground almonds
  • 100g hazelnuts
  • 2 tbsp. cacao powder

  • 2 bananas
  • Pinch Malden salt

Equipment required:

To make:

Serves 4

Soak the dates in hot water for 5 minutes, then drain.

Place the dates, ground almonds, nuts and cacao powder in a blender and blitz for 2 minutes until smooth. Place this mixture in a mixing bowl and add the chopped almonds. Mix well and place half of the mixture in a small serving dish.

Slice the bananas and place a layer of sliced banana on top of the chocolate and then add the second half of the mixture. Using a spoon, flatten the mixture out before adding the second layer of banana. Place this in the fridge for 2 hours to set. Serve each scoop with a tiny pinch of Malden salt.

This recipe is a real beauty. With warm, flaky salmon, a burst of sweetness from the sweet potato and a fresh, crunchy mouthful of rocket, this dish will have your tastebuds singing.

Roasted Golden and Red Beets with Black Rice and Tahini

Beetroot is one of my favourite root vegetables with so much to offer in terms of flavour and colour – and most importantly, it’s in season right now. Its deep red hue, slightly earthy flavour and winning nutritional content make it a star ingredient for bright, fresh salads.
