Her Recipes For Life

The Ovarian Cancer Action recipe book is a celebration of the courageous women we have lost and the brave women who continue to live with ovarian cancer.Her Recipes For Life

The book contains 40 dishes, from starters and mains to an entire 'bake off' section. There are even ideas for picnics or a night in with friends.

Some of the recipes have been contributed by women living with ovarian cancer and others are special family recipes that have been passed down by someone affected by ovarian cancer.

Recipes include:

  • Chicken soup
  • Walnut and beetroot hummus
  • Spicy bulgar pilaf
  • Italian meatballs in tomato sauce
  • Chocolate brownies
  • Walnut chocolate cake
  • Crème brûlée
  • Turmeric and ginger tea

Florence, who was diagnosed with stage three ovarian cancer, says of her salad recipe: "It's a simple dish to rustle up as a snack to eat as a family sitting in the garden in the sunshine, or munching in front of the TV watching a film! Eating together –  a wonderful time for closeness and enjoying the simple things in life!"
