Shredded Tuscan Kale Salad with Toasted Pepita Seeds, Baby Cornichons & Lemon Tahini Dressing.

Stephanie Malouf Nutrition


Serves 3-4 people

Into a salad bowl add:

- Shredded Tuscan kale. 4 extra big handfuls. Wash under hot water to soften and pat dry before adding to the salad bowl.

- 2 tbsp of toasted pepita seeds: On medium heat, dry cook the pepita seeds in a non stick pan until lightly golden and crunchy (I do these in bulk and store in the fridge for an easy add to salads, soups or as a snack)

- 1 small handful of diced cornichons

- For the dressing, in a separate bowl add 1.5 - 2 tbsp of tahini, the juice of half a lemon, pinch of salt and a touch of warm water to form a thin and creamy consistency. Pour over the salad. Mix well and serve!

Globe Artichokes With Caramelised Onion & Feta

Stephanie Malouf Nutrition

I'm having a love affair with artichokes at the moment. Apart from being seriously tasty, artichokes are also full of fibre, low in carbs, a great source of cancer preventative antioxidants and they also boost bile production which is important for detoxification and digestive health. There is so much to love.

Hope you love this recipe xx

Serves 6


  • 400g of fresh or frozen globe artichokes (I use Givrex frozen artichokes to save time and effort from MFC supermarket, Rosebery)

  • 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1 bunch of fresh dill, chopped

  • 1/2 bunch of parsley, chopped

  • 1 brown onion, sliced into rings

  • Juice of half a lemon

  • 1/4 heaped cup of feta cheese, crumbed

  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Defrost the artichokes if using frozen or if using fresh globe artichokes refer to the following video - How to prepare globe artichokes

  2. Add the oil to a saucepan on medium heat and once heated add the onion rings and sauté until soft

  3. Add the freshly chopped dill and parsley and sauté together with the onion until the the onion becomes lightly golden in colour

  4. Add the cooked or defrosted artichokes to the pan along with the lemon juice and a pinch of salt and pepper and sauté until everything is well combined and the onions have caramelised

  5. Transfer onto a serving platter and finish with a sprinkle of feta cheese

  6. Enjoy warm or cold

Creamy Low Carb Cauliflower Mash

Stephanie Malouf Nutrition

Serves 4 

Cauliflower is a non-starchy veggie which means it low in carbohydrates and calories however still loaded with nutrients. This delicious mash recipe is great alternative to your typical potato mash which is a lot more carb dense, particularly for those trying to watch their weight, yet just as creamy and delicious. 


  • 1 tsp raw coconut oil

  • 1 medium-large cauliflower head, chopped into smaller chunks

  • 1 leek, sliced

  • 1 cup of Bone Broth or good quality stock. I use Undivided Food Co's Organic Chicken Bone Broth. You can use water but it's not as flavoursome.

  • 2 tbsp full fat Coconut Milk or 2 ice cubes of coconut milk* (optional to make it extra creamy)

  • Pinch of sea salt


  1. Add the coconut oil to a fry pan on medium heat and sauté the leek until soft

  2. Add the bone broth and chopped cauliflower to a saucepan and cooked covered until soft (approx 10-15 minutes)

  3. Add both the cooked cauliflower with the left over juices, sautéed leek, coconut milk and a pinch of salt to a blender or food processor (I use my Nutribullet) and blend until smooth and creamy.

*TIP: If you are like me and only use small amounts of coconut milk at a time in your cooking, add the left over milk to an ice try and pop out the coconut milk cubes as you need them. That way you don't let the left over milk go to waste. My pet hate is food wastage.





Digest & Detox Salad

Stephanie Malouf Nutrition

When you eat bitter foods such as grapefruit, watercress and fennel, our bitter taste receptors trigger the pancreas to secrete digestive enzymes and the gall bladder to release bile. Bile is used to breakdown fats so we can absorb them as well as remove waste products that the liver filters from the blood. Watercress is also high in calcium, contains more iron than spinach and more nutrient dense than kale!

 Note: Be careful not to eat too much grapefruit when taking medications because it inhibits the enzymes that breakdown drugs, increasing their toxicity and effect. In some cases it may also cancel out medications.

Serves 8 ppl


  • 1  fennel bulb
  • 2 grapefruits
  • 2 bunches watercress
  • ¼ cup verjuice (or substitute with white balsamic vinegar)
  • 2 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Pinch of salt & pepper


  1. Slice the two ends off the grapefruit, approx. 2 cm from the edge, leaving some flesh with juice on each off cut to use for the dressing
  2. Remove the skin and slice lengthways into 4 even pieces and place onto the serving plate
  3. Finely slice the fennel and place into a bowl
  4. Discard the thick stems from the watercress and add the remainder to the bowl with the fennel
  5. Pour over the olive oil, verjuice juice and and squeeze the juice from the ends of the grapefruit. Finish with a pinch of salt & pepper 
  6. Combine well using your fingers
  7. Place the dressed fennel and watercress on top of the grapefruit
  8. Serve & enjoy
