Add some sparkle to your food

Hello Everyone,

I am so happy to be back with a recipe for you this week. Last week I sent out a newsletter asking for contributions for weekly recipes and lo and behold, within an hour of the newsletter going out I received a considerable donation via paypal from my very generous parents. I had forgotten they read my weekly blog. So this recipe and the next five will be brought to you via their generosity. I feel so grateful as sharing a recipe each week brings me loads of joy. Thank you Mum and Dad.
Coincidentally Saturday is my parent’s 56th Wedding anniversary.  Their continual love for each other is so lovely to witness and I feel grateful that that love spilled over onto us as children and now into our adult years. Their love and ability to have a good laugh together makes me smile from ear to ear writing this. I share with you photos of their wedding, our family on our first trip back to England in 1976 and our family in 2015 celebrating Mum and Dad’s 50th wedding anniversary. 

This week I have a sprinkle recipe. Well three actually. Sprinkles are an essential fridge staple. We have one or two in our fridge at all times.  Perfect for pasta, salads, soups, on steamed veg and as a topping on bakes and lasagne etc. A few years back one of my colleagues wrote sparkle on the label of a pepita sprinkle I made so we have affectionately since then called our sprinkle, sparkle. Adding a bit of sparkle to your food does add another flavour dimension. 

Brazil Not Parmesan

(Do you like my play on words here?)

1 cup brazil nuts 
½ cup nutritional yeast
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder (optional)


  1. Place everything in a food processor and process until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Pepita Sprinkle


1 cup pepitas
½ cup nutritional yeast 
1 tsp salt


  1. Place the pepitas in a dry frying pan and place it on the heat until the pepitas start to pop a little. Give it a shake from time to time. Remove from heat and put on a plate or tray to let cool down.
  2. Once cooled place the pepitas in a food processor with the nutritional yeast and salt and process until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.



1 cup sesame seeds
1 tsp salt


  1. Place the sesame seeds in a dry frying pan stirring frequently until they brown. Remove from heat and put on a plate or tray to let cool down.
  2. Once cooled place the sesame seeds in a coffee grinder and grind until they resemble a finae crumb (you may need to do this in 2 batches). If you don’t have a coffee grinder use a mortar and pestle.
  3. Put the ground sesame seeds in an air tight jar and mix in the salt.
