Super speedy superfoods, minimalist style

In a recent post, I shared my food journey from culinary ingenue to full-on foodie. My plant-based diet is my favourite way of eating. Its straightforwardness aligns with my move towards greater simplicity, so I thought I’d share some of my favourite speedy recipes. There are lots of foody blogs on the web, but not so many devoted to the minimalist kitchen. If you like this approach, let me know and I’ll share some more.

So, ‘Izzy whizzy, let’s get busy!’
