started back in 2011 after I was diagnosed with an illness called Postural Tachycardia Syndrome It had a pretty devastating effect on my life, both mentally and physically I started reading all I could find about the link between diet and lifestyle, and the way they can help manage illnesses I was incredibly inspired by what I was learning and decided to change my life by adopting a whole foods, plant based diet and removing most processed foods from my meals Slowly but surely, I began to regain control of my symptoms It took me about two years, but eventually I came off my medication, and Ive been working on stabilizing the condition ever since I have recurrences every now and again, but Im now able to live the life that I want to and no longer feel held back by this chronic illness Its been a challenging but incredibly empowering process I never thought Id be a businesswoman or an entrepreneur, but over the last few years my husband, Matthew, and I have spent all of our waking time creating a company in London that is passionate about natural food, the environment and social responsibility Our passion is to change the conversation and perception around natural food Deliciously Ella has always served two purposesinspiring me to learn to cook and giving me a positive outlet, both of which hugely helped me to become the person I am today Sharing what I was learning was my way of turning a negative into a positive and its been truly amazing to see so many people enjoy the recipes More than anything Ive wanted to use this space to show how easy it is to create beautiful, nourishing and, most important, delicious meals from simple, natural ingredients As the community grew, so did my following in the United Statesa country I count as one of my major sources of inspiration I spent a few months living in Venice Beach in 2014 and was incredibly energized by the food scene there Its influenced so much of what Matt and I have done so farwith our delis in London, with the cookbooks and the appand Im really excited to start spending time in the US and to get to know you all INTRODUCTION Over the last few years healthy eating has really grown in popularity, which has been wonderful to watch Its given me such a thrill to see people realize how good they feel when they eat foods that nourish their bodies The best part of it all, though, is that everyones started to see how incredibly delicious healthy living can be The stereotype that its all about lettuce and cucumber is vanishing and is being replaced with dreamy visions of blueberry pancake stacks with caramelized banana bites and crunchy cacao and almond butter, bowls of creamy sweet potato noodles with satay sauce, mango and mushroom ceviche and chocolate orange tart So many of my readers say that they love eating whole foods and incorporating plant based meals into their routine but that their husbands, wives, children, friends and colleagues are skeptical and, as a result, theyre not particularly open minded about trying new, veggie laden dishes Lots of people also struggle to know what to cook and how to put menus together when theyre entertaining, especially when theyre new to this way of eating When I first started eating a plant based diet, I found it hard to know which dishes would complement each other best I got it really wrong a few times with my friends and Im pretty sure they left the table thinking I was a bit mad The good news is that this book is designed to solve both these issues Each chapter is focused on delicious meals Ive got your mornings covered with brunches and breakfasts, followed by lighter meals that work well on the go big healthy feasts and celebration menus essential side dishes, party staples and, of course, everyones favoritedesserts Ive also given meal suggestions that cater to your every sociable need think brunch for the girls, or a grab and go breakfast, pantry saviors, delights for your desk, cold weather comforters, Mexican fiestas and even dishessuch as a knockout Sunday lunchdesigned to impress the skeptics in your life So once youve worked your way through the book youll feel inspired, knowing exactly how to put Deliciously Ellastyle meals together in a way that persuades your friends and family to try some healthy versions of their favorites Plus, youll get to cook than one hundred delicious new recipes Well be making so many lovely things, from peanut butter and jelly cake to quesadillas stuffed with garlicky beans, cashew sour cream, salsa and guacamole almond butter rocky roads pea, zucchini and coconut risotto chickpea chili with baked sweet potatoes and chocolate peanut butter pie Get ready this is a seriously tasty book Well start with my favorite breakfast and brunch recipes think on the go menus with crumbly blueberry squares, roasted almond butter bars and honey and lemon breakfast bars Or awesome savory brunches with stacks of sweet potato rsti piled high with maple and rosemary butter beans and spread with a thick layer of herby guacamole Were also having toasted buckwheat and coconut granola with zesty mango and pineapple bowls and passion fruit yogurt, as well as baked garlicky tomatoes, scrambled turmeric and red pepper tofu and thyme fried mushrooms Theres a great range of options, from easy dishes you can throw together to help rushed mornings when youre time poor, to fancy brunches to share on lazy weekends Well then go through some fantastic lighter recipes that work well for quick weekday suppers, as well as portable lunches Well look at fresh bites like mango and mushroom ceviche and sushi rolls filled with cauliflower rice, sesame and avocado after work catch up menus of spiced potato cakes with garlicky tomato sauce and green beans and perfect picnics with charred coconut corn and vibrant salads filled with mango, pepper, cucumber and a peanut dressing This chapter is full of my go to meals, quick and easy, but still so delicious The chile and ginger pho, sesame slaw, pistachio and apricot quinoa and sesame and maple summer rolls are real favorites here I make these for Matt and me during the week when were at home, or when I have a couple of girlfriends coming over for weekday supper The next chapter is all about hearty feasts and celebrations These are the meals I make when I have lots of friends and family over, or want to impress someone I promise all these dishes and menus will convince any skeptic that eating well can be pretty amazing Theres a great selection of ideas in here, from Mexican themed feasts, to curries with homemade lime pickle, to warming meals of tomato and eggplant bake served alongside bowls of spinach with mustard seeds We then cover everything from garden parties filled with charred cauliflower steaks on a bed of chile quinoa and sun dried tomato and butter bean hummus, to comforting bowls of three bean stew with mango salsa, to simple, inexpensive suppers of spiced chickpea chili stuffed into baked sweet potatoes Theres really something for everyone After this we move toward side dishes This is probably my favorite chapter of the book as theres such a wide range of ingredients, flavors and textures here I absolutely love using these as traditional sides, but its also fun to make a few of these recipes and throw them into a bowl together to make a full meal It always looks beautiful and tastes sensational I have so many much loved recipes in this chapter, but the baked plantains with a sweet chile sauce, the smashed potatoes with turmeric and mustard seeds, the miso and sesame glazed eggplants and the spicy baked avocado fries with their lime, cashew and cilantro dip are all absolute winners and you all should try them I have a feeling that theyll become staples in your diet too Theres a good mix of impressive and simple dishes in this chapter, so there should be something to suit every taste bud and every occasion The other great thing about the recipes in this chapter is that you can mix and match them with just about anything, so if youre not ready to go fully Deliciously Ella, then just add these to your existing go to meals That way you can experiment with new ingredients without it all feeling too new and overwhelming If youre a meat eater, then these are great ways to incorporate a bit plant based goodness into your diet too, and hopefully theyll get you excited about how good veggies can taste To make things fun Ive dedicated a whole chapter to parties weve got nibbles, cocktails and mocktails and even birthday teas Youll be able to serve a lovely array of little bites, from charred Padrn peppers with chipotle cream to bowls of smoky baked tortilla chips with babaganoush, eggplant rolls with a minty coconut tzatziki and mini baked potatoes with cashew sour cream and chives, as well as mini socca pizza bites To accompany them theres a list of mocktails and cocktails, so you and your friends can sip on sparkling pineapple and cayenne drinks, or watermelon and cucumber coolers as you catch up And to end the chapter weve got a beautiful afternoon tea with iced ginger muffins, a banana and raisin cake and simple cucumber and lemon butter bean hummus open sandwiches, as well as a birthday tea with peanut butter and honey oat bars, blueberry scones with vanilla coconut cream and a triple layered celebration cake I think this chapter will really show your friends and family that healthy eating is accessible, delicious and sociableits absolutely not about sitting on your own at home every night meditating and eating kale salad These dishes are amazing if you want to do a big dinner party, too, as they mean you can keep it delicious but with a healthy twist from start to finish To end the book well go through all the best sweet ways to finish a meal I know how much my readers love sweets and there are some real winners in this chapter, which Im sure youll all really enjoying making, eating and sharing if theres any left by the time your friends arrive Weve got beautiful desserts like pistachio and orange truffles, watermelon and mint granita, pan fried cardamom and honey apples and berries with creamy chocolate sauce and crushed nuts, which work so well as lighter options at the end of a meal There are also lots of amazing snacks, from salted maca and tahini fudge, to orange and cardamom cookies and my personal favoritequinoa, hazelnut and cacao barsthat work really well on the go Then, if youre looking for something heartier and indulgent, there are some wonders for you near the end of the chapter as we move toward chocolate peanut butter pie, glazed orange polenta cake and even a sticky toffee pudding Theres so much here for everyone, and Im sure these will all go over really well with your friends and family Hopefully the recipes, ideas and menus that youll see throughout the book will inspire you to get cooking, so that you can enjoy amazing food with the people you love Of course, you dont have to use the book in this way I pull out single recipes and make them on their own all the time, as theyre all so great and obviously you wont necessarily want to make a full three course meal every night Ive just put them together to help you work out what goes well with what, so that you feel confident in the kitchen HOW TO MAKE HEALTHY EATING APPROACHABLE FOR EVERYONE While I am on the subject of sharing food with others, including those who might be skeptical about eating plant based food, the other point Id like to highlight is that eating well is not about labels, guilt or enforcing a certain way of eating on yourself or anyone else Its so important to remember this, especially when youre introducing your friends and family to this kind of food, as you dont want them to feel too overwhelmed and daunted by the concept The way we eat is so personal to us, and we are all different We have different bodies, different medical histories, different genes, different lifestyles and different tastes I do believe that everyone is better offboth physically and mentallywith a diet full of fruit, veg, nuts, seeds, beans, legumes, healthy grains, and less refined sugar and processed food but, after that, you have to make your own decisions, and its OK if these are different from the choices made by your friends and family Only you know whats practical, enjoyable and sustainable for your lifestyle and, as with anything in life, the way you eat doesnt fall into a one size fits all bucket Healthy eating is about finding a way of eating that makes you happy Its about meals that make you feel your bestthat might mean a crumbly blueberry square for breakfast, a lemony potato and butter bean salad for lunch and then a pizza with wine for dinner with friendsand thats totally OK Its your body and your life Yes, I want to encourage everyone to show their bodies some love and take good care of them, but I never ever want anyone to feel guilty because theyre not eating perfectly all the time Plus, there is no such thing as perfectperfect is simply finding a balance that is right for you, whatever that is This book is all about natural, plant based food and the recipes are all vegetarian and wheat free, but there are no labels on any of it Its simply about delicious food thats designed to help you feel good, and you can adapt any of it As you read this book, please dont feel you have to put yourself firmly into any dietary category Putting yourself in a certain box with a specific label can be quite restrictive You just shouldnt feel that youre not healthy if youre not specifically raw, plant based, Paleo, grain free, gluten free, wheat free or any of the rest of it You can absolutely be a bit of everything, you just have to be honest with yourself and work out what makes you feel best and that might be a happy mix of everything Of course it can also mean following a certain concept, but please dont feel as though its wrong if you dont Likewise, you shouldnt expect anyone else you know and love to categorize themselves either Dont forget that healthy eating should never be prescriptive or restricting The other thing to note is that we also all want to commit to healthy eating to different extents and thats great I eat the way I do because I love it, but also because its the only way that Im able to manage my illness I want toand have toeat nourishing food all the time Just because I eat this way every day, though, doesnt mean you should feel bad if you dont Similarly, you shouldnt inflict guilt on anyone else if theyre not ready to eat healthily all day long either, just focus on encouraging them to add natural foods to their diet and celebrate the small steps and changes that theyre making rather than focusing on the other things you feel they could be doing We all respond so much better to positivity than negativity So please remember that when youre introducing friends and family to this food, its important to let them know that its totally OK to be a flexible healthy eater and thatjust because you live with someone or spend a lot of time togetherit doesnt mean you have to eat in exactly the same way Everyone has to start somewhere, at some point, and its much better to introduce healthy living to your own or someone elses life in a sustainable way over time than it is to do it all at once and then quit three days later because you they hate living on kale salads Find a balance that works for you and the people around you, incorporate whole ingredients and nourishing foods whenever you can andmost importantplease dont beat yourself up or make anyone else feel bad for eating something that isnt super healthy because life is much too short for that TOP TIPS FOR ENCOURAGING FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO GET HEALTHIER 1 FOCUS ON FAMILIAR FOOD If youre having a real skeptic for dinner, or trying to get an unconvinced family member to try a healthier meal, then always cook something that looks and feels familiar to them Choose a classic dish that has a healthy spin on it Something like quesadillas and cashew sour cream and guacamole This is a perfect meal, as your guests are never going to look at it and think, What is that, it looks terrifyingly healthy and decide they dont like it before they try it, plus its really satisfying and hearty, which means everyone will go home full So remember to go easy on everyone, dont leap straight to raw food, or anything too unfamiliar and scary looking 2 DEMONSTRATE, DONT PREACH No one likes to be preached at or made to feel guilty about anything in life, especially the way they eat, as its often attached to a lot of emotions and possibly deep rooted insecurities Dont talk about meals as being good or bad healthwise theres no point categorizing anything to inflict guilt Instead just demonstrate how delicious healthy food is Make your friends amazing, nourishing meals and encourage them to try them, but without telling them why its so much better than what they normally eat Simply cook and share natural goodness thats exactly how I got all my friends and family involved If you do want to inspire them with the benefits of healthy eating, then let them know how good youve been feeling since you started incorporating whole foods into your diet, and how much your own energy levelsand everything elsehave improved but just dont go on about it too much 3 ITS OK TO ADAPT ALL THE RECIPES As I said earlier, healthy eating isnt about labeling yourself or forcing yourself to do something you dont enjoy If youre new to healthy eating, or trying to get friends and family involved, dont be afraid to adapt any of my recipes to make them accessible for your audience If adding chicken, fish, cheese or eggs makes the people you love likely to try something new, then add them in by all means if it makes them receptive and allows them to enjoy the meal , then thats a great thing It also means their plate will look familiar, which I find is the best approach 4 DONTT CHANGE EVERYTHING AT ONCE You dont have to overhaul your diet overnight Theres no rush or deadline for changing your lifestyle Its about finding an enjoyable, sustainable way of life that makes you happy and it really doesnt matter how long it takes to get there Start by focusing on positives and adding goodness in, rather than taking everything away Add in new veggie dishes throughout the week, but dont feel you have to remove the old favorites at the same time just let the two coexist for a while as you get used to new ways of eating and cooking Allow yourself and the people around you however long you and they need to start loving the new ingredients, textures and tastes Most important, never criticize yourself if you dont enjoy something You dont have to love all fruit and veg even I dont enjoy them allyoull never find me eating iceberg lettuce or green peppers for examplebut thats OK, there are so many other lovely ingredients out there to experiment with instead 5 DONT BE TOO STRICT ON YOURSELF OR ANYONE ELSE Its so important to remember that no one is perfect, and theres no point in striving for perfection, as the concept simply doesnt exist This is relevant to everything in life really, but I believe its especially important to remember when thinking about food When it comes to what we eat and how we eat, we just have to do what makes us feel happiest and never forget that this will be different for everyone Food is such an important part of life and you dont want to feel stressed every time you sit down for a meal, which takes away all the fun from something you should really look forward to and savor So find a balance that you enjoy and, if you lapse from your healthy eating plan, never beat yourself up, just find a positive way to get back into it were all only human after all Every change in life also takes time to become a habit, so dont expect yourself to wake up craving quinoa on day one sadly its unlikely to happen Just be OK with that, accept where you are right now and, crucially, dont judge what you are craving embrace it and then try to incorporate a healthy something on the side 6 MAKE THE MEAL BEAUTIFUL Concentrate on making the food you serve look really appetizing It may sound like a bit of a waste of time, but its not We eat with our eyes first, so a dish needs to look tempting, especially if youre trying to get someone new excited about it If you and your guests think it looks amazing, youll all be much open minded and ready for it to taste amazing, too This has been one of the most important things for me as Deliciously Ella, especially on the blog and Instagram So many readers have said that they tried something they thought they wouldnt like because it looked great, and they ended up loving it It doesnt take long to enhance the appearance of something You just need to put it in a clean, beautiful serving dish rather than serving it in what you cooked it in and then add a little color and texture with dressings, herb sprinklings and toppings such as toasted nuts and pomegranates 7 KEEP THE INGREDIENTS A SECRET This may sound a bit strange, but I find it really helps people be objective if they dont know theres a certain ingredient in a dish Lots of us think we hate a particular taste or texture, but if we try it in a new context, we often end up loving it Ive had so many friends say, Oh I hate dates, but then they love my crunchy almond butter rocky roads and eat three of them, or they say they hate cilantro but adore the spiced potato cakes Especially if its just one of many ingredients, its worth keeping it a secret so that they try it with an open mind and I think youll both be surprised by the result Obviously, make sure you know they are not allergic to it first If it is a main ingredient, and therefore not disguisable, then I always highlight the fact that its been cooked in a totally different way and is being served with new flavors, to demonstrate that its very different from how they may have had it before, and this often works too Just do your best to encourage your friends and family to try things with an open mind and you may end up with a few new converts I hope my experiences, and the tips Ive learned for convincing friends and family to try new things, are helpful to you all Now, lets get cooking Natural Feasts Healthy, Plant Based Recipes to Share Internationally bestselling author of Deliciously
