Lemongrass Rice

Boil the coconut milk and water to boil in a pan. Add the rice and lemongrass. Mix and place the lid on the pan leaving it to heat on a very low setting for ten minutes.

Turn the heat off (or on level 1 for an induction hob) and let the rice sit for 15 minutes. (Leave the lid on for the entire time.)

Thai Beef

Whilst the rice is cooking, add the carrots, peppers, chilli pepper, honey, lime juice and Soy sauce to the beef mince and once tossed, allow it to rest in a bowl.

Add the coconut oil to a pan or wok. Once hot, add the garlic and ginger and cook for a few seconds. Add the beef and season with salt and pepper.

We cooked the mince until it was crispy/brown and added more Soy sauce.

Once the rice is cooked, remove the lid and fluff the contents with a fork before dishing up!

Throw the rest of the ingredients into an oven proof pot and stir in the mince mix. Ideally cook at 120 degrees Celsius for 3 hours but if you are short for time, simply cook until the sweet potato is softer and the consistency is thicker.

You will be surprised by the fair prices and impressed with the quality of food.

Ostrich fillet – In for a penny in for a £1.30


Twitter is buzzing with mixed reactions regarding Iceland’s new “speciality meat and game from around the globe” range. Last night we looked into the hype and tried the Iceland Ostrich fillet.IMG_1345-0

The 125g of Kezie Ostrich costs just £1.30 per fillet. If you are a fan of beef, you will love this healthy alternative. With a slight game taste, the rich meat could soon adopt a leather texture unless cooked carefully. That aside, we simply seared each side on a high heat and then cooked the pre-cooked fillet in nothing but Coconut Oil for 3 minutes on each side.

Not only did the Ostrich fillet taste delicious, it is incredibly healthy. With a high iron and protein content and low fat, cholesterol and collagen any clean eater should be keen to add this to their diet.

Served with balsamic braised red cabbage, the Ostrich fillet went down really well and for the sake of £2.60 for 2, I would highly recommend heading to Iceland to try some for yourself.

The Horses Mouth | Clean Vindaloo Paste


Earlier I shared the recipe for a Clean Vindaloo Curry that I found on Rebelfit. I’m keen on making dishes as clean as possible so decided to make my own Vindaloo paste!

Note to self: Ease up on the Birdseye Chilli next time.

• Black Peppercorns (1tsp)

• Coriander (2tsp)

•Yellow mustard seeds (1tbsp)

• Dried red chillies (4) – I used Birdseye

•Lazy garlic (2tsp)

•Ginger (2tsp)

•Sea Salt (1/2 tsp)

•Coconut Oil (1tbsp)

•Vinegar (2tbsp)

•Tomato Puree (2tbsp)

•Tamarind Paste (1tbsp)

•Fresh chilli (2) or chilli powder

Simply throw every ingredient together and blend into a paste!

•Vindaloo paste (or make a scorcher of a curry and make a clean Vindaloo paste of your own!)

Heat up the Coconut Oil and fry the beef strips.

Add onions to pan and cook until golden.

Stir in the paste and chicken stock.

Throw in the Sweet potato and cook until soft.

Alternatively, once the beef strips are cooked and the onions are golden, throw the entire mix in a slow cooker and enjoy later on.
