Frozen marbled halva and cocoa loaf

By Denise Phillips, August 1, 2013

Halva is a confection originating in the Balkans and eastern Mediterranean regions. I have combined it with some cocoa powder to enhance the slightly chocolatey flavour from marbled halva — which can be found in kosher delis and supermarkets — but you can try other flavours like vanilla or pistachio. I use non-dairy cream so it is available after any meal and also because it is less rich.

Roasted nectarine ice cream

Cooking: 20 mins

4 large ripe nectarines, halved and stoned

Peanut butter banana ice-cream pie

By Lisa Roukin, July 25, 2013

This dessert tastes really indulgent but has no added sugar in the ice-cream. Make it with soya single cream for a parev pud. The banana peanut butter ice-cream in it is super simple to make and no one will ever know there are so few ingredients involved. I love that it is healthy too. Serve immediately for soft-serve ice-cream consistency.

Broccoli and Cashew salad

Preparation: 20 mins

2 broccoli heads (approx 600g)
150g cashews, toasted
100g dried cranberries
125g fine egg noodles, uncooked

Tabbouleh

By Silvia Nacamulli, July 18, 2013

This Middle Eastern salad is a classic summer dish – and a perfect accompaniment to a barbecue. It often has more parsley than this version, but I prefer it more subtle. I add a few more tomatoes instead. You can also be creative and add celery, spring onions and/or cucumber.

Preparation: 20 mins
Cooking: 2 mins plus soaking time
Serves 4-6
INGREDIENTS
250g fine bulgur wheat

Summer tomato tart with basil and oregano

By Silvia Nacamulli, July 5, 2013

Tomatoes are everywhere at the moment, of all colours, shapes and form. It is a pleasure to the eye and to the taste buds. I like to use cherry tomatoes for these tartlets but feel free to use any yellow, green or other red tomatoes, the important thing is that they are ripe. You can also make one large tart instead of 4 small ones, in which case add a few extra tomatoes.
