Cuisine: Breakfast/Side
Serves: 4


  • 4 potatoes, halved
  • ⅓ cup (80ml) sunflower oil
  • 1 tsp black mustard seeds
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tbs fresh ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 tbs curry powder
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • 20g unsalted butter
  • 6 spring onions, trimmed, thinly sliced
  • 1 long green chilli, seeds removed (optional), finely chopped
  • 4 eggs

Optional: Natural yogurt, mango chutney and warm naan bread, to serve


  1. Place the potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Add a pinch of salt, bring to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes or until just tender. Drain in a colander and leave to cool for a few minutes, then place on a board and cut into bite-sized pieces. Set aside.
  2. Place a non-stick fry-pan over medium high heat. Add 2 tbs oil and, when hot, sprinkle the mustard seeds into the pan and cook for a few seconds or until the seeds are just beginning to pop. Add garlic, ginger, curry powder and turmeric, and cook, stirring constantly, for 30 seconds.
  3. Place the butter in the pan and, as soon as it has melted, add another 1 tbs oil and the chopped potato. Fry for 5 minutes, tossing, until golden and lightly crisp. Scatter the spring onion, chilli and ½ tsp salt over the potato and cook, stirring, for a further 1 minute. Season with ground black pepper. Divide the potato mixture among four warm serving plates.
  4. Carefully wipe out the pan with paper towel and return to the heat. Add remaining 1 tbs oil and fry the eggs for 2-3 minutes until the white is cooked but the yolk is still runny. To serve, place fried eggs on top of potato and serve with yogurt, mango chutney and naan bread.

Cuisine: Side
Serves: 2 Large Jars


  • 2 green cabbages – Save some of the outer layers of the cabbage for packaging on the top
  • 7 cups carrots or beetroot
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp fresh grated turmeric (optional)
  • 3 tbsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tbsp caraway seeds
  • 1 tbsp fennel seeds
  • 2 tbsp sea salt (optional, you can do it without salt, but it speeds up the process)



  1. Wash the cabbage and scrub the carrots, then finely slice the cabbage, and grate the carrots. Or use a food processor with a fine slicer attachment for the cabbage and rough grating attachment for the carrots.
  2. Place all ingredients in large mixing bowl. Use your hands (you might want to wear rubber gloves to prevent your hands to get stained by the turmeric) to mix and massage until it starts to get soft and juicy. The vegetables should release quite a lot of juice, if not, just add some more salt.
  3. Use a spoon or tongs to spoon the mixture into 2 large clean jars. Pack it tight to leave out all air, keep packing until the jar is full of veggies and the veggies are covered in juice (important).
  4. Leave some space at the top to place a whole folded cabbage leave on top, this is to prevent any oxidation. Close with an air-tight lid. During the fermentation process the veggies will expand and the liquid will try to come out, we put our jars in a bowl or a plastic bag for any juice that might drip from the sides.
  5. Leave the jars to ferment in room temperature for 2-4 weeks (depending on room temperature), 3 weeks is usually perfect. When ready, it should be softly textured but not mushy and have a fresh, spicy and acidic flavour. Discard the cabbage leave at the top and store the jars in the fridge.
  6. We usually divide the fermented vegetables in smaller jars and hand out to friends and family or keep it in the fridge.

Cuisine: Soup
Serves: 4


  • 1.5kg organic chicken
  • 1 small head garlic, sliced horizontally, plus 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped, extra
  • 5cm-piece ginger, peeled, chopped, plus 1 tbs finely chopped, extra
  • 1 tsp white peppercorns
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil or olive oil
  • 1 long fresh red chilli, finely chopped
  • 2 tsps turmeric
  • 270ml can coconut milk
  • 200g pkt fresh sweet potato zoodles (see notes)
  • 1-2 tbsp tamari, to taste
  • 1 lime, juiced, plus wedges, extra, to serve
  • Fresh coriander sprigs, to serve



  1. Place the chicken in a stockpot. Add 4L (16 cups) water to cover. Bring to the boil, over high heat, skimming and discarding any fat that comes to the surface. Reduce heat to low. Add the garlic, ginger, and peppercorns. Simmer, skimming occasionally, for 1½ hours or until the chicken is very tender. Transfer chicken to a plate and set aside to cool. Coarsely shred the meat and discard the skin and bones. Strain the chicken stock, discarding the solids and reserving the liquid.
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a large saucepan. Add the chilli, extra garlic and extra ginger. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until aromatic. Stir in the turmeric. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until aromatic. Slowly pour in the reserved chicken stock. Add the coconut milk. Simmer for 20 minutes or until reduced slightly. Add the zoodles and shredded chicken and simmer for 5 minutes or until zoodles are tender. Stir in the tamari and lime juice. Season to taste. Divide among serving bowls. Top with coriander and serve with extra lime wedges.


Recipe Notes:

If you’re time-poor, use ready-made chicken stock. You will need 1.125L (5 cups).

You can purchase packets of spiralised sweet potato at specialty grocers. If you can’t find them, use a spiraliser to cut 200g peeled, sweet potato into noodles. Alternatively, peel the sweet potato into ribbons, then use a knife to cut each piece of sweet potato into thin strips.
