Rosemary Ferguson was discovered by a model scout aged 15, and went on to star in major campaigns for the likes of Prada and Miu Miu, became a Vogue cover girl and is still great mates with Kate Moss.
Today though, Ferguson is a nutritionist with a homeopathic and complementary medicine background. She’s written a book on cleansing juices and her Instagram feed is filled with recipes ideas that go big on all things fresh and green.
We grilled her on her life in food…
Your death row meal would be… Toast (granary) with butter and Marmite.
The thing you still can’t make is… Fish stew!
Your favourite store-cupboard essential has to be… There are loads but if I have to pick one, it would be split lentils. I also keep Strong Roots kale & quinoa burgers in my freezer as they’re so easy to make into a tasty snack straight from the oven, and my family love them!
The kitchen utensil you couldn’t live without has to be… Vitamix.
If you get hungry late at night, the snack you’ll reach for is… Hummus and crackers – or ice cream, ideally a nice vegan one.
Your signature dish is… Oh I don’t know – I change what I cook often. My lentil dahl is always a goodie!
You like your eggs… Soft boiled – five minutes.
Your favourite childhood dinner was always… Jacket potatoes.
Last night you had… Puy lentil soup and sourdough – yum.
Your takeout of choice is… I love Thai or Indian for a takeaway – curry is always a hit.
Your ultimate hangover cure has to be… A super smoothie is a great cure – some berries, protein powder, coconut water, spinach and some nut butter; hydrating and with good fats and lots of antioxidants!
You cannot stomach… Eeeeeek – I am not great with mushrooms. Much as I love their health benefits, I am not that keen on their texture.
Rosemary Ferguson teamed up on recipes with Strong Roots, available at Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s, Wholefoods and Ocado.
