4- ingredient chocolate mint tart (GF)

Good afternoon (or morning, depending on which hemisphere of the world you are located at ☺) everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones. I though I would share this ridiculously easy chocolate- mint tart that I made recently for dessert. Christmas came early for me this year when I was generously sent a basket of goodies from Unique Health Products that coincidentally included one of my favourite chocolates ever!  I decided to use the mint and cacao nib flavour in this tart. Although there are some strange (joking!) people out there who dislike the chocolate mint combination, this tart is so easily adaptable so long as you use a good-quality chocolate.  Continue reading “4- ingredient chocolate mint tart (GF)”

Hummus stuffed mushrooms (GF)

My oh my, the weather is slowly but surely warming up. I cannot believe that it is four more sleeps until Christmas! Hubby and I are keeping it low-key this year as I live so far away from my family and his parents are going away. I recently made these stuffed portobello mushrooms with homemade hummus and they were so delicious so I thought I would post them on the blog to share.

Broccoli, herb and mungbean loaf (GF)

I have a current obsession at the moment. That obsession is making bread simply out of legumes and vegetables- nothing else! To be honest, it all started with an intention to make falafels using mung dahl however I couldn’t be bothered rolling them into balls so I poured the mixture into a lined tin and made a loaf! I was rather surprised at the outcome to be honest; a light but filling loaf that is gluten-free (and vegan friendly) as well being high in fibre and protein.

Slowcooked mushroom and butter beans with steamed artichokes and roast potatoes (GF)

Good evening (to those in the Southern Hemisphere!) lovely humans. I hope all has been well. I have been a little absent from this platform for awhile as my husband and I have been on a much-needed getaway amongst the ups and downs of the IVF journey. Oh, did I also mention that I have a giant essay worth half the semester’s marks. I thought I’d pop on here and post the recipe for this slowcooked butter beans stew which we had with some steamed organic artichokes and roast rosemary potato.

Zucchini, banana, hazelnut chocolate cake (GF)

Good evening lovely humans- I hope you are well and happy. I have just come back from a beautiful holiday in Tasmania with my husband and I feel so refreshed and relaxed. As much as I’d love to relax amongst nature, drive around farmland, pat and feed animals and eat delicious food, I am slowly getting back to reality. I have spent the day catching up on online lectures and currently, I am writing this blog post and watching latest Riverdale episode, all whilst eating organic chocolate in my pyjamas.

Baked red lentil and carrot falafels (GF)

One may be aware of my love for lentils and beans- all legumes in  fact! They are so versatile, packed full of nutrients including fibre, protein and folate and are so affordable especially when purchased in bulk. Lentils in particular are higher in protein compared to beans and are an excellent source of B vitamins and iron.
