These bite-sized savoury plant balls are a great addition to a sharing platter or even for kids school lunch boxes. With no eggs used to bind them – just ground flaxseed, they’re vegan friendly too. Get the recipe here.

Turmeric Cashew Cheese

A welcome addition to a cheese and cracker board, this spread is full of flavour, and uses the anti-inflammatory superfood turmeric. This recipe literally takes 10 minutes to whip up, and it keeps in the fridge for 3-4 days. Not just for dipping either, this turmeric cheese is great in sandwiches. Use it in place of mayo or mustard for a flavour. Get the recipe here.

Roasted Beet Hummus

Better than anything you can buy, this beet hummus is the goods. Roasting the beets isn’t necessary but, if you have the time, imparts a more intense beet flavour. If you’re into your veggie sticks, this hummus will really add sustenance to your snack session! Get the recipe here.

Super Seed Crackers

Perhaps you’re wanting to eat more whole foods or just want to reduce waste, these nutrient-dense super seed crackers tick all the boxes. These crackers take only minutes to make and you choose the size – bite-sized for dipping or kids lunch boxes, or larger for a more substantial snack. Great with smashed avo. Get the recipe here.

Almond Tahini Hummus

Ever tried hummus with almond butter? We love this variation on a favourite. Not only that, but you’ll get the added nutritional benefits you find in almond butter, so this is super hummus really. Making your own hummus is also pretty economical, and this keeps for up to 5 days so you’ll be sorted for the week. Get the recipe here.
