4. Bhel puri freekeh bowl

5. Soba noodle, tofu, edamame and radish salad

Japanese cuisine is know for its clean flavours, and this light dish is case-in-point. Protein from the tofu, edamame beans and soba noodles, which are made from buckwheat flour, will make sure you stay full for hours. 

6. Popeye polpette (spinach quinoa ‘meatballs’)

Eating anything this green and you know must be doing you good! Serve these spinach and quinoa meatballs with zucchini noodles and a tomato sauce to make a detox-friendly pasta-and-meatball dish. 

7. Salmon, kale and quinoa bowls with tahini sauce

Fish, greens and grains are a tried-and-tested formula for health. This version is bound together with a creamy tahini sauce.

8. Raw summer Pad Thai

This detox version of a summer staple uses raw vegetable noodles (and kelp noodles if you have access to them) in place of traditional white rice noodles. The beloved peanut sauce and handfuls of herbs keep it true to Pad Thai form.

9. Detox rainbow salad with almond butter dressing

When you need a salad to sort you out after festive season indulging, this is it. Packed with raw vegetables, crunchy nuts and seeds and served with a wholesome, lemony, nut butter dressing.

10. Superfood nut butter cups

Superfood salad

This salad is a homage to the forgotten superfoods. The humble underdogs, like the sweet potato, which contains more beta carotene than a carrot, and the cauliflower, which contains plant sterols that help to lower the “bad” cholesterol naturally. These salad ingredients make this dish a late summer/early autumn specialty. Having said that, if there are different vegetables available at the time, get creative and use them! Ideas for winter substitutes include Brussels sprouts or turnips, or a summer salad could include beetroot or eggplant.
