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.


Crunchy Vegetable ‘Tabbouleh’ with Coconut Cream & Herb Dressing

Crunchy Vegetable ‘Tabbouleh’ with Coconut Cream and Herb Dressing

by Amelia Freer

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

Chicken and Tarragon Casserole

by Amelia Freer

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.


Passion Fruit ‘Crumble’

Passion Fruit ‘Crumble’

by Amelia Freer

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.
