Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Hearty Italian veg and white bean soup

    • Hellyloves2cook on August 25, 2016

      This recipe calls for 2 Tbsp of liquid aminos/soy sauce and 2 1/2tsps salt which I thought was a little excessive so I cut down the salt to I level teaspoon. For my palate that was plenty so I am glad I made this decision. The soup was flavoursome and even better the following day.

  • Honey and seed flapjacks

    • Hellyloves2cook on August 25, 2016

      I used honey in this recipe. Very easy recipe and turned out well. They didn't last long in the tin with my teenage boys.

  • Mexican leek and black bean chilli

    • SugarFree_Vegan on July 19, 2017

      I would have never thought of adding leeks to a chilli but this works so well, a really tasty and very low calorie chilli if you are careful with the oil.

  • Thai coconut, sweet potato and lemongrass soup

    • sarahj22 on July 19, 2017

      This soup is beautiful but it helps to be in the mood for some veg chopping! End result is very thick but you can thin it down with stock or water. Gorgeous Thai flavours, rich and filling.

  • Shel's no-bake caramel slices

    • Booksandchocolate on April 10, 2021

      Very good! I didn't have almond butter, but I had cashews at home that I used to make my own cashew butter (roast cashews until they start turning golden, about 10 minutes, and then put them in the food processor while still warm). It worked perfectly in the cake. The cake freezes really well. Took out a few pieces the other day, and they tasted exactly the same as the day I made it.

Publishers Text

"I love The Happy Pear. Its cheery optimism is enough to make it a charming refuge ...genuinely good food that brings healthy eating in from the cold". (Irish Times). Let's face it: while we want to eat more fruit and veg and things we know are good for us, we sometimes fall short because we're not sure how to turn all that great produce into great food. Well, welcome to the Happy Pear way of eating - healthy but never worthy, easy but never dull, and packed with mind-blowing flavour, exciting texture and vibrant colour. The Happy Pear opened ten years ago when twins David and Stephen Flynn, passionate about starting a food revolution in their home town, took over their local fruit and veg shop and later opened a cafe. Their revolution has not only succeeded, but it is spreading, and The Happy Pear's fans range from young parents to pensioners, ladies-who-lunch to teens-on-the-run, Electric Picnickers to Hollywood stars. David and Stephen's first cookbook is full of irresistible recipes for everything from everyday breakfasts, lunches and dinners, to scrumptious - and yes, still wholesome! - cakes and sweet treats, to special occasion splurges. David and Stephen also tell their story (how they transformed from jocks to hippies before finally finding their groove), share their top tips for maximizing taste and goodness in food, and explain how they've succeeded in building a food business based on flavour, health and community. "One of the funkiest eateries in the country". (Irish Independent).
