I’TS THE WEEKEND BABY! And it’t time treat yo self.. No, we don’t mean go out and blow all your cash. What we mean is its time to start giving your body the nutrients it needs, and to start showing it some LOVE! ❤️✨ Here is our simple Waffle Recipe, which creates so much happiness in all who eats them - try them savoury or sweet.. or maybe just eat them in bed, but take time this weekend to treat yourself and be grateful for the incredible vessel our souls’ live in everyday

1 & 1/4 cups of mylk (vegan nut milk or non GMO soya milk)
1 tsp apple cider vinegar (ACV)
1 & 1/4 cups of oil you can use the healthiest available
1/4 cup of honey or date paste or coconut sugar
1/2 cup of oat flour( you can fast blend your oats to make oat flour)
1 & 3/4 cups of rice flour
1 & 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Mix mylk and ACV together and allow to stand for 10 mins.
Then add honey / chosen sweetener, oil and set aside
Add all the wet ingredients to the dry ones.
Blend with a be**er or a mixer untill smooth.
Heat waffle iron up.
Spray with coconut oil (or oil alternative) so not to stick.
Pour mixture onto waffle iron and close down and check that it doesn’t stick.
Cool till firm and golden brown and crispy ...Delicious
Seriously, S I M P L E.

Cover with strawberries ,a bit of maple syrup as a sweet treat, or sweeten with some tahini and date paste 🍓

If you want a savoury waffle just eliminate most of the sweetener (you can keep a little bit), and are divine with roasted med veg and savoury tahini! 🥕


IT’S Zakifo Music Festival TIME! 🔥
Although we have been a little quiet, we will be rocking along with Ben Harper and BeatenbergBand tomorrow (SATURDAY 1 JUNE) at Durban Botanical Gardens from 3pm - 10pm. Come swing past us for chocolate brownies drenched in salted caramel icing, our famous falafel wraps or a bowl of curry, rice and Dahl to warm up your evening! We can’t WAIT to rock with you 🤸🏼‍♀️



2 cups chic peas (soak and cook)
1 onion
2 large clove garlic
1 cup fresh coriander
1 cup fresh parsley
Zest of 1 lemon
1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper
1 Tbsp cumin powder
1 Tbsp coriander powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup gluten free oat flour (you can blend oats into flour) Oil for frying.

- Place chic peas and 2L water in a large sauce pan to soak for 24 hours (They will triple in size and it reduces cooking time).
- Rinse and add new water and cook til soft. Canned chic-peas are too mushy( I think).
- Place the chic-peas, onion, garlic, fresh herbs, lemon zest, cayenne, cumin, coriander, salt and black pepper into a bowl of a food processor and alternate between pulse and blend until the mixture is uniform in size and still grainy in texture (not smooth).
- Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary. Add baking powder and do the final blend.
- Roll the mixture into balls about golf ball size. The balls should stay together and not fall apart.
- You can either shallow fry in coconut oil or deep fry in sunflower oil, but the oil must be very hot before immersing the balls into it.
- Cook until they are golden brown and crispy.
- Once cooked, let them sit on paper towel so the fat can drain off.
- Serve hot and crispy with hummus, tahini, crunchy slaw, some tasty aubergines and a squeeze of fresh lemon.

It’s easy, just try...


Sometimes our soul’s call for a time out and we ignore it, but then the Universe creates a path which forces us to listen. I have been in a middle passage where one chapter is closing and a new one hasn’t quite opened yet… but lots of ground work is being done. A little bit like a cocoon process. Taking time to practice less resistance and more acceptance.

I have been on a private soul journey on which I have savoured food made from true healing hands which really has a very unique flavour. When you feed your soul at this level, you experience peace beyond measure.Through this experience I have developed a burning desire to share my knowledge and to help those who struggle to know how to feed themselves with creative, wholesome, plant-based meals.

I am here to be of service, to share my love and my passion to create a happier, healthier world that works in union. Sharing is certainly caring.

Stick around to see what we have in store.. ✨

P.s: Pictured here today is our secret spicy carrot hummus! 🧡


Filippo Tommaso Marinetti was the first artist in the modern era to think of the preparation and consumption of food as art. He thought cooking and dining, so central to everyone’s day-to-day lives, should also be central to his farsighted, far-out ideals. Looking back, food has always played a role in art: Stone Age cave painters used vegetable juice as binding ingredients in their paints, and the Egyptians carved pictographs of crops and bread on hieroglyphic tablets. During the pop art era, food became a social metaphor. Wayne Thiebaud painted rows of pies and cakes in bright pastel colors that brought to mind advertisements and children’s toys. So, what is food art today, and how does it manifest itself in the twenty first century? Food, as art is synonymous with “eating with your eyes” as we allow all of our senses to get involved in the eating process – thus, a dish which is more visually appealing, is psychologically more appetizing. Make art with your food. Play, make mistakes and enjoy the messiness of getting properly involved with making your food artistic 🥭🥬🍋🍠


“Eh, what’s up, doc? Carrots are divine” - Bugs Bunny 🥕🐰 Did you know there is a date set for !? Yup, April 4th is carrot day.

They’re perfect for smooth skin, preventing Cancer, and keeping those hearts as healthy as can be! Spiralize them, chop them, grate them, steam them, roast them or just eat them raw and whole - the options are infinite! What’s your favourite carrot dish?


We’re balls C R A Z Y, and you would be too if you knew just how delicious, and nutrient abundant these little bad boys are! One of the ingredients that makes our power balls so powerful, is the raw cacao 🍫 with almost 40 times the amount of antioxidants as blueberries, this incredible superfood has the highest plant based source of iron (remember in order to utilize this iron properly, it must be combined with vitamin C - try orange chocolate smoothies or something of the sort! 🍊).

Falafel falafel falafel.. you see it and hear of it everywhere now that plant based food has become more frequent with more people eating consciously 🐄🐖🐥 but, what’s the point in having the same food time and time again? Food is supposed to be exciting, as it entices the human body to “CHOW DOWN!” and indulge in the flavours and textures of human nature! That’s why, at OTL we believe in food creativity, and to have innovative flavours always bursting out of our kitchen! So, if you’re over having the same monotonous plain falafels, make sure to join our daily meals or visit us at our markets, where you’ll get to try extravagant falafel variations, such as spinach falafel and beetroot falafel! 🥬 Have beautiful Friday’s all!

We’ll be here until 11.30am, so come and say hey and grab an OTL meal in support of world vegan month! 👋🏼


Nothing brings people together like good food! 🌮 Just like veganism is a sustainable option when it comes to looking after our planet, plant-based living is also a more sustainable way of feeding the human family. A plant based diet requires only one third of the land needed to support a meat and dairy diet, and with this rising global and water insecurities, there’s never been a better way to adopt a more sustainable way of living.
It’s time to ask ourselves: if it is now possible to live a life that involves delicious food/drink, delivers better health, leaves a smaller carbon footprint and avoids killing other creatures - then, WHY DON’T WE!?


It’s the first Saturday of November.. and you know what that means! 🍆 IT’S MARKET TIME!

The cruciferous family of vegetables have generated a lot of interest in the health world due to their cancer fighting compounds. So, what are cruciferous veggies, and why are they so epic!? 🧐 so, here’s a little beginners guide for your Tuesday read:
- Cruciferous veggies are a diverse group that includes broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, bok choy, arugula, Brussels sprouts, collards, watercress and radishes.
- While these veggies grow in all different colors, shapes and sizes, they share several nutritional benefits - they are rich in vitamins and minerals such as folate and vitamin K. Dark green cruciferous veggies also are an excellent source of vitamins A and C. They’re also rich in phytonutrients — plant-based compounds that may help to lower inflammation and reduce the risk of developing cancer... as well as rich in fiber and low in calories, a combination that will help you feel full and satisfied without overeating!
Pictured here is our wonderful Blessing, squeezing fresh lemon on some cruciferous cabbage! What cruciferous veggies are you eating today? 🥦

What gets you up in the morning? And what makes your heart beat faster? ❤️ We know that the answer to both of those questions for us, is FOOD. 🥑 And delicious, ethical, plant based food, at that! 🌱 Eating is not only essential for your bodies, but for your minds too.. dietary changes bring about changes in our brain structure, chemistry and physiology (which lead to changes in behavior) as well as releasing serotonin while our bodies break down the food in the process of digestion. This increase in serotonin not only affects ones moods, but reduces depression, regulates anxiety, heals wounds, and maintains bone health. It’s so important to pay attention to your body, and this is the easiest way how.. just by feeding those hungry mouths with nutritional food!
