I’ve put it in green juices and snuck it into veggie soups just because I know it’s good for me and I need to combat the ton of wine I drink on a weekly basis.

We love using seasonal fruit and veg in them and often some marinated salmon or tuna. I made these for the South African Mushroom Farmers’ Association and the mushrooms add some fabulous umami and great texture to the rolls. They are a winner all year round […]

They are soft and pillowy and not too sweet. I love folding raspberries and blackberries into my batter, but you can also use any seasonal fruit you have on hand if you like.
