This is the instant sweet treat you’re after. It’s full of fibre and antioxidant rich ingredients, and can be made on the stove top in a matter of minutes. The perfect solution to your winter cravings. All the ingredients are pantry or fridge staples. One of them is water…
You cannot possibly underestimate the warming, healing and happiness power of a good soup on a cold day. I’m probably making at least 1 soup a week at the moment and filling my freezer with tasty things for cold days when cooking is just beyond me. Yeah even people like me who spend all their time, thinking about, writing about and cooking food can’t be stuffed sometimes. Make your way through this tasty little collection this winter for happy bellies and warm hands.
These taste like a cross between cinnamon brioche and cinnamon donuts. The coconut, vanilla and cinnamon give them sweetness (enhanced with a little maple syrup, or dates if you’re not a fructard!) and the dark roasted almond butter adds a toasted richness that makes them extra delicious.
With a choc, coconut almond base, tahini caramel middle layer and raw chocolate topping this slice is all the good things. It’s gluten free and sweetened with a little maple syrup to make it a not so naughty treat.
I think all 3 recipes I’m posting this week have little travel stories attached to them. I got the idea for these chips from a trip to Granada, Spain. I went for a weekend and ate my weight in Tapas, so obviously I loved every moment of it.
I’m back from holidays and not loving reality. Such a positive start to a blog post right? I feel like I could have extended my holiday for twice the length at least if money hadn’t have been an issue. If money wan’t an issue so much of life would be different wouldn’t it? But I had the most amazing time, and have so many experiences to share with you all…soon. For now let’s start with a recipe that was influenced by Morocco, where couscous is king.
I love snacking, especially when you’re watching a movie or sharing some drinks with friends. This popcorn takes a simple snack to the next level, making it very grown up and even more addictive than the original. Look out.
Who doesn’t love a good sausage roll? We do these so well in Australia and I’ve been branching out occasionally recently and doing something I never thought I would. Eating vego sausage rolls. Sorry, ‘sausage’ rolls. I’m still calling them that as they’re the right shape and the same idea but just filled with veggies! Super nourishing and filling and all encased in flaky puff pastry.
Kale chips, yes yes I’m a bit late jumping on this bandwagon but I swear I’ve been making them for years now. It’s just that I didn’t think my kale chips with just olive oil, sometimes chilli, and salt were ground breaking enough to share with anyone. Not that every recipe I share is always groundbreaking! Clearly not! But these kale chips are next level. I ate 2/3 of a bunch of kale in one sitting because of these. That’s a lot of kale, who does that?
This is a green smoothie that packs a punch in the antioxidant and good for you departments. There’s matcha for those antioxidants, a good dose of omega 3’s, potassium, vitamins A, C and K to name a few, fibre, protein it’s like a powerhouse. I love serving it in a bowl over some muesli for hidden crunch and topped with fruit for contrasting flavours. And because it looks pretty tbh.
