Paleo Lemon Loaf Cake

If you love lemon cake, we think you'll like this recipe too as it's super easy and healthy (no grains! and no dairy! low in sugars!) at the same time.   We've used tapioca flour and coconut flour for the flour mix and no wheat flour, hence its gluten-free and Paleo friendly.   Also, it's very low in sugars as the sweetener we've used are coconut flower nectar and stevia.   Just put this cake on the table and watch it disappear - no-one will notice how healthy it actually is!    Ingredients:   For the Cake 100g Coconut Flour ...

Lacto-Fermented Pickled Jalapeños Recipe

Here at FoodCraft, we are all about fermentation.When I see fresh, beautiful & organic produce, my mind starts spinning thinking.. "How can I ferment this..!" Fermentation does wonders. It basically "cooks" the produce without using heat. Meanwhile, it breaks down the food, making it easy to digest and assimilate. Plus it comes with probiotics and UMAMI! One of the biggest reasons why I turn to fermentation is simply because it makes food taste really good.We are doing a lacto-fermentation in this recipe, which is only pickling with salt and not using any vinegar. Vinegar is good to preserve food as the acidity kills...

Green Jalapeno Harissa Dip

Going Keto can be challenging when you run out of ideas. One way to breakthrough this challenge is to have an array of different sauces to make the same ingredient taste like a new invention. This recipe contains no added sugars and is incredibly keto friendly. (Plus it's vegan, gluten-free and soy-free!)I love Harissa paste and when I received these beautiful organic jalapeno, I was inspired to make a super spicy and flavourful harissa sauce in a green color. I thought by using raw Jalapeno, I would make a VERY spicy sauce... but this  miserably failed. To my surprise, raw Jalapenos are not that spicy....
