Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Millet salad with chilli lime prawns

    • eliza on February 05, 2014

      I made this last summer for a lunch and liked it a lot. I really liked that it uses millet which is similar to quinoa in size and texture, but is much less expensive. It was a good introduction to this book which seems to have a good variety of recipes.

  • Seeded spelt bread

    • SpatulaClark on March 16, 2020

      A good version of a standard seeded 'sandwich' bread, simple and quick to make. I used wheat for the white flour portion last time, and think it added noticeable extra structure. Much better rise with ice cubes in a tray under the loaf tin.

  • Amaranth & raisin cookies

    • SpatulaClark on March 14, 2020

      Nice snack cookies that keep well in airtight container. I like to make them with wholemeal spelt flour instead of wheat, double the ginger, and just a spoon of sugar. Also good with chopped prunes instead of raisins.
