Vegan 101 – good for your health and the planet.
Delicious pasta recipes each under 500 calories per portion, from classic traditional dishes to contemporary twists, including vegan, vegetarian gluten- and dairy-free options.
Pasta is one the easiest to make and most joyful to eat meals; always in the cupboard, ideal to turn to in a pinch and the ultimate comfort food. However, a fear of carbs has placed pasta firmly on the no-go list of 'bad' foods for many people - a huge mistake and wholly unnecessary! If you're on the hunt for a balanced, nutritious meal that can please a crowd as easily as provide a quick supper for one, pasta is a great choice. It's often the accompanying sauces and toppings that pile on the calories in a pasta dish, so here Julia Azzarello proves otherwise - all recipes are small on calories, big on nourishing ingredients and full of flavour.
Focusing on fresh, healthy ingredients in delicious combinations, Skinny Pasta also has many vegan, vegetarian gluten- and dairy-free options. From Vermicelli with Cherry Tomatoes, Rocket & Feta and Mafaldine with Romanesco Sauce, to tasty salads such as Greek Rotini and soups Butter Bean, Chorizo & Spinach with Pappardelle, as well as quick and easy mains including Orecchiette with Cime Di Rapa & Chilli, Spaghetti Carbonara and Mac 'n' Cheese, there's a pasta for every occasion.
If you have a little extra time on your hands then make your own basic pasta dough, gluten-free gnocchi, fresh pesto or marinara sauce, or simply add shop bought pasta, and indulge in a delicious and nutritious treat.

Spices weaved their way into my kitchen and somehow my collection seems to flourish regardless of the homes and locations I’ve lived in. From the author and chef of Cooking for my father in My Cape Malay Kitchen, comes a cookbook that chronicles her adulation and reverence for spices. Cariema Isaacs’s affinity for spices emanates from her Cape Malay heritage and her time spent cooking and baking in her grandmother’s kitchen in Bo-Kaap, the Cape Malay Quarter in Cape Town. Thus, at a very early age she understood the tastes derived from cumin and coriander, the pungency of fennel, cloves and star anise, and the piquancy of chilli powder, cayenne pepper and masala blends. Spice Odyssey showcases a multitude of beautifully written recipes with some familiar spices from her Cape Malay heritage and fresh aromatics from her travels to India, Turkey, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and the Middle East. ‘From east to west, north to south, the routes and journeys travelled from shore to shore by slaves and explorers, travellers and traders, the story of spices emerged and the spice odyssey began.’
