I received this cook book from a book giveaway and am so happy that I won it! This is definitely a book that I would have purchased on my own. The stories and tips that Olivia Newton-John shares in this book are heartwarming and helpful. Oh, and the photos....I love a cookbook with photos of the dishes! While there isn't a photo for each and every recipe, there are enough that I am happy.

The recipes are a nice mix of vegetarian and meat dishes, making it perfect for both vegetarians, flexitarians and even meat eaters.

This book would make a wonderful gift for anyone who loves cooking and/or healthy eating.

Simple, easy recipes for a healthy, happy, balanced lifestyle from celebrity singer and breast cancer advocate Olivia Newton-John.    


tuna niçoise salad with Olivia’s favorite dressing

serves 2


6 oz small new potatoes

1/4 oz green beans

2 x 1/4 oz tuna steaks

olive oil spray, for cooking

1 small red onion, thinly sliced

2 hard-boiled free-range eggs, quartered

2 cups mixed salad leaves

8 cherry tomatoes, halved

flat-leaf (Italian) parsley, to garnish


Olivia’s favorite dressing

freshly squeezed juice of 1/2 lemon

2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 teaspoon Bragg Liquid Aminos, or to taste (see note)


To make Olivia’s favorite dressing, put the lemon juice, olive oil and the Bragg Liquid Aminos in a jar and shake well to combine. Taste and add more liquid aminos if preferred. Set aside until needed.


Cook the potatoes in a large saucepan of boiling water for 10 minutes, or until bright green and tender. Add the beans to the pan for the last 2 minutes of cooking, or until tender.


Rinse the beans immediately under cold water and drain well. Halve the potatoes and set aside to cool.


Spray both sides of the tuna with the oil spray. Sear the tuna on a barbecue hot plate for 2 minutes on each side for medium, or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate and set aside to rest for 2–3 minutes.


Arrange the potato halves on serving plates with the beans, onion, egg, salad leaves and tomato. Top with the tuna and drizzle the dressing over the top. Garnish with the parsley, to serve.


Note: Bragg Liquid Aminos is a certified non-GMO liquid protein concentrate. It is made from soybeans and contains essential and non-essential amino acids. It is available from most health food stores.


You can replace the tuna steaks in this recipe with a 15 oz can of tuna in springwater or olive oil. Drain well and flake into large chunks before adding to the salad.
