We have just discovered a wonderfully creamy coconut yoghurt called CoYo.
Naturally dairy free, it is lovely on its own or with some chopped fruit stirred through it.
Also, try this dressing which works beautifully on foods like potato salad, coleslaw or baked potatoes or as a dip.
You will need:
125g CO YO coconut milk yoghurt, natural flavour
Juice  of 1 lime or half a lemon (to taste)
1 clove garlic, crushed
A handful  of fresh chopped herbs, e.g. parsley, coriander, basil or mint
Half a fresh chilli, deseeded & finely chopped (optional)
Gently mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, add lemon/lime juice and chilli to taste.  Chill & serve.

Raw Lemon, Cashew & Parsley Dip

We’re not doing a lot of cooking while the weather is so hot, so this delicious raw Lemon, Cashew & Parsley dip has been great. Enjoy it with plenty of fresh, raw vegetable crudities or scooped into crisp chicory leaves.

This recipe is also versatile enough to use as a dressing. Just thin it out with extra oil and lemon juice, & drizzle over baked fish and roast chicken, or toss it through salads. Parsley and lemon are rich in antioxidants and vitamins, while raw cashews are creamy and nutritious, especially when soaked in water beforehand with a pinch of salt, ideally for 4-6 hours.

Serves 4

80g raw cashews
100ml extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
2 large handfuls of fresh parsley leaves, approx 45g
1 medium garlic clove
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
4 tbsp water
¼ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp ground black pepper

Blend all the ingredients together and serve in a bowl with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil on top.

We’re Going Utterly Nutty

Manuela Goeb used to run the Breadcrumb Bakery & Pastry Shop in Kenmare.

She is now the brains behind Utterly Nutty, an Irish artisan Gluten Free bakery.

She describes her Gluten Free Florentines as “3 little pieces of heaven” in a box.  We have to agree.  If flaked almonds drizzled with honey on a bed of 70% cocoa chocolate floats your boat you’ll find them in store now.
