Amelia Freer’s Mother’s Day Menu

by Lottie Huckle

published on 22 February 2016

Amelia’s debut cookbook, Cook. Nourish. Glow. is packed with flavourful recipes with a focus on gut health, without sacrificing flavour. So this Mothering Sunday treat your mum to a celebratory feast minus the slump! We’ve picked three of our favourite recipes to create a menu that’s healthy, comforting and will have your mum grinning come Mother’s Day.

Starter:

Crunchy Vegetable ‘Tabbouleh’ with Coconut Cream & Herb Dressing

These little pots look really impressive but are deceptively easy. They’re light and fresh and you can prepare the components in advance and then assemble when serving – the perfect starter.

Main Course:

Chicken and Tarragon Casserole

Amelia says that this recipe makes her think of her mum as she rocks a casserole. It seems like mums across the world rock a casserole, so we thought it would be lovely to treat our mums to a casserole whilst they put their feet up on Mother’s Day. This recipe is straight forward and can be left to slow-cook whilst you enjoy some quality time together.

Dessert:

Passion Fruit ‘Crumble’

These little sweet treats are the perfect way to finish a three-course meal. Not too heavy, but still sweet and delicious with the flavours of passion fruit and raspberry.
