Maca is a fantastic superfood, full of protein and minerals and very energising. Have one (or two) of these mid-morning or late afternoon when you’re starting to flag, to perk you up. The maca plant grows at higher altitudes than any other plant in the world. It can also withstand extremes of temperature – intense heat and biting cold. So it provides us with that energy of endurance, of being able to battle through life no matter how high the mountain or how fierce the storm!

125g / 4 oz  tahini            
125g / 4 oz raisins            
1 tbsp maca              

  1. Grind the raisins first in a food grinder or food processor.
  2. Put the whole lot in a mixing bowl, and combine with a spoon.
  3. Roll into walnut-sized balls – makes about 16.
  4. If you want to make them as presents, or to serve at a party, roll them in desiccated coconut or shelled hemp seeds.
  5. Stored in an airtight container in the fridge, they should keep for a couple of weeks.

People often write and tell me how much they enjoy my recipes, but one of the best messages I’ve ever received was the lady who told me I even managed to make Spirulina taste good! Some accomplishment, I’m sure many of you will agree, and here you can test it out with this recipe.

250 g or 1 small head broccoli
1/4 red onion
2 tbsp spirulina
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 lemons, juiced
1 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
1 tbsp tahini

  1. Chop the broccoli into small pieces to fit into your
  2. Put all the ingredients into the blender together, and give it a good going until it’s creamy. If it’s too much like hard work for your blender, you can add a little water in or some extra oil.
  3. Once it’s turning over and there’s no lumps of broccoli left, it’s ready to serve. 
  4. Use as a dip with vegetable crudités, spread on crackers, or use it to fill a nori sheet along with a handful of sprouts.
  5. Leftovers should keep in the fridge for up to five days.
