Tanya’s Cafe Chelsea

Vegan? Gluten free? Organic? Tanya’s Cafe ticks very health box. In fact, everything that comes out of Tanya’s kitchen is completely raw and full of nutrients.

A place for yoga bunnies to meet up post work out and nibble on seriously delicious and raw food, there’s a bit of hype around Tanya’s at the moment. And rightly so. The food is amazing! It’s not cheap – but it really is worth the price tag.

Raw Tacos at Tanyas Cafe Chelsea

We ordered the tacos, which were the tastiest tacos I’ve ever eaten. Guacamole, portobello mushroom ‘meat’ and salsa in a dehydrated taco.

This was followed by crunchy munchy cheesy kale chips and avocado with super-seed mix.

We skipped out of Tanya’s, satisfyingly full and glowing with raw-ness.

The Detox Kitchen

I’ve been following The Detox Kitchen on Instagram for a few months now, and each day I’m wowed by the beauty and simplicity of their tasty-looking dishes. Last Friday morning they posted a photo of their stuffed aubergines on a bed of rocket. Dotted with pomegranate jewels and flaked almonds, the aubergines looked so good that they sent me marching to The Detox Kitchen’s Kingly Street deli, where I met my great friend Jess for lunch.

I had the roasted aubergine with a selection of three salads which included celery, avocado, quinoa, cucumber, spinach, pumpkin seeds and tomatoes. It was all so DELICIOUS and accompanied by a green juice I finally see why everyone raves about this place. I’ll be back next week to try the raw beetroot and cacao brownies! 9/10

Raw Chocolate Brownies

I am a lazy chef. But when I do cook, I like to throw simple and delicious things together. So when I came across this recipe for brownies on My New Roots I couldn’t believe that there were only FOUR main ingredients and not one of them included eggs, sugar or flour. Also, they claimed, the brownies didn’t even need cooking. It seemed too good to be true.

The only four ingredients I used are: 100g Raw Cacao, 100g Medjool Dates, 100g Walnuts, 1 tablespoon of Desiccated Coconut (a slight variation from the recipe I found online). I whizzed the ingredients together in a blender until the mixture looked like cake crumbs and then I pressed it all into a heart shaped cake tin. I then left it over night in the fridge… et VOILA. The most delicious brownies I have ever eaten.

It’s a complete bonus that they are super healthy and incredibly easy to make!
