Our favourite recipes of 2020

Written by Endeavour College of Natural Health | 23 December, 2020

2020 was the year where we spent more time at home, decluttered our space, picked up new hobbies and cleared the shelves of flour to make banana bread.

Speaking of cooking (and baking), we were lucky to have some amazing recipes on our blog this year, so we’ve rounded up the top five that got you cooking in 2020! Ranging from sweet to savoury, your favourite recipes this year are sure to be favourites all year round.

#5 Chocolate donuts with raw chocolate ganache

Coming in at number five is a chocolate lover’s dream, created by nutritionist and Endeavour alumni, Jessica Cox. These chocolate donuts with raw chocolate ganache are the definition of a ‘guilt-free’ dessert, meaning they contain whole ingredients with no added nasties. Take me to the donuts

#4 Low FODMAP zucchini fritters

Taking a sharp turn from sweet to savoury with these FODMAP-friendly zucchini fritters from Meredith East-Powell, a then-student now an alumna (and practising clinical nutritionist). These zucchini fritters are ideal for those with a sensitive gut, as they are low in fermentable fibres. Eat them for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack! I want zucchini fritters.

#3 Green power muffins


What’s savoury and green, like the zucchini fritters that came before? These green power muffins by Meg Yonson, a qualified nutritionist, recipe developer and one of our Nutrition alumna. This year, Meg hosted an online cooking demo for our students and alumni where she whipped up these muffins in real-time. With ingredients that are affordable and easy to find, these green power muffins are one of our favourites! Power me up with muffins.

#2 DIY Vegemite


If Australia had a taste, it would be Vegemite! This humble culinary treasure is beloved by households far and wide, which is why Clare Holberton (then student, now alumna) decided to share a nutrient-dense version of this classic spread. Containing four simple ingredients and an even simpler method, this DIY Vegemite is a great one to have in your recipe toolbelt. We love our Vegemite.

#1 Leftover pasta salad


Taking the top spot in the recipe-race is this leftover pasta salad by Heike Hohaus, one of our Nutrition lecturers and Clinic Supervisors. Pasta salad is the ideal dish for when you’re entertaining guests – it’s cost effective, filling and full of flavour. If you’re looking for a quick and easy recipe to try out, look no further! Leftover pasta salad, please.
