Getting green on Khoollect this week…

I’ve always been a fan of bringing nature into the home, whether it’s plants, flowers or even a little vegetable patch. Urban spaces can be adapted into little green havens if you make the best of what you have – and my little Hackney balcony doesn’t stop me from growing my own herbs, chillis and tomatoes.

Spring has sprung so the Khoollect team decided to bring you a dose of nature this week – from beginner gardening tips to a colouring book inspired by French produce. Here are a few more highlights…

If you like to chew your kale rather than drink it, Khoollect food editor Frankie Unsworth’s delicious kale pangrattato pasta can be on your table in under 15 minutes.

There’s also this chia seed bircher muesli recipe from New Zealand eatery, Prefab. The silky coconut yoghurt really makes it sing. Try it for a great start to the day.

And don’t forget to subscribe to Khoollect’s YouTube channel. You can go behind the scenes, and discover goodies like this tour of Bert & May’s barge – a stylish urban space on water. I like the way they used plants to bring freshness to the interior.

Head over to the website for more discoveries and do keep following the journey on Khoollect’s Instagram. Don’t be shy to leave comments – the team and I really like hearing from you!
