I always used to love apple sauce with a roast dinner but these days I find it a bit boring when it’s apple and nothing else. Last night I was struggling to think of something to liven up some organic pork and invented a more interesting (IMHO) version that contains three of the best gut-friendly foods on the planet – four, if you count the prebiotic impact of extra virgin olive oil.

Making low-carb gluten-free gravies, soups and sauces
One of the most frequent questions I get from low-carbers is ‘how do I thicken a sauce?’ For those of us who were taught to make a roux with butter and flour, or mix up a tablespoon of cornflour, going gluten-free and low carb can be a challenge.
