Homemade flatbreads with chilli chickpea and crunchy kale chips (GF)

I am utterly obsessed with chickpeas at the moment whether it is roasted until crunchy, ground into a flour or added to curries/ chilli recipes. This meal is laden with plenty of plantbased protein and fibre amongst folate, vitamin B and prebiotics for a healthy gut. Although the meal sounds a little fancy and maybe a little complicated, it truly isn’t!

Seed cycling and why I do it… and the ultimate hemp and lemon dressing for in between.

Y’all who have been following me for awhile would know how much I love tahini. As in literally tahini on anything and everything…okay, okay, maybe not everything but you know what I mean. There are two weeks of my month where I cannot consume tahini or there sesame products and that makes me relatively sad. Those who have also been following me for awhile would know that I follow seed-cycling principles. What is that? I hear many of you ask. Let me explain!

Wholefood peanut butter brownies with salted caramel (GF)

On this day, I realised that I had legumes for lunch, snacks and dinner! I don’t think there is nothing wrong with that especially in a plantbased diet especially if the legumes are sourced organically and sustainable. Legumes are cheap and are an excellent source of fibre, protein, folate, vitamin B, magnesium and can be used in so many different dishes. Say hello to the humble yet absolutely delicious peanut butter brownies with a salted caramel. Sounds luxurious and guilt-laden right? Fear not- these are wholefoods based and use organic, homecooked chickpeas!

Hasselback potatoes and chilli chickpeas (GF)

Once again, I wasn’t really going to be posting this recipe on the blog as it is so ridiculously easy however many individuals have enquired for it anyway. So here it is… although I feel like I should change my blog name to include the words “lentil obsession” in the domain. Just a note, if you have an over-eager husband who is currently going through a hot sauce phase; do NOT allow him near this dish. My beautiful hot-sauce crazed husband added half a bottle of habanero hot sauce in the dish when he was “helping out”. Yeah, my head only just slowly glued itself together a few days later…

Roast cauliflower, carrot and wild rice soup with borlotti beans (GF)

To be honest, I have never been a fan of soup. Well, I don’t detest them, I simply prefer foods with more texture. Although delicious and flavourful, they are often satisfying for a hot minute before you’re lookin’ for snacks again. I have learnt to up the satisfaction factor by increasing the amount of protein in my recipes including the good old humble bean. In this recipe, I have also added wild rice for a delicious, nutty texture.

Baked potatoes with curried borlotti bean and mint raita (GF)

Oh look, another potato recipe! Who doesn’t love the humble potato though. A powerhouse of nutrients despite the confusion in society where they are considered unhealthy due to their carbohydrate component. But what people do not realise is that potatoes are not unhealthy however it is the way that they are cooked that makes the difference. This recipe incorporates organic potatoes that are firstly boiled before being halved, stuffed and baked.
