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.
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.
Have you even had cabbage rolls? I had lots of organic cabbage laying around in the crisper and wanted to try something different for dinner so I came up with this delicious, healthy and relatively easy recipe. Lightly steamed cabbage leaves, filled with a mushroom lentil mixture and rolled up before baking in a tomato passata sauce with macadamia feta sprinkled on top. Have you even had cabbage rolls?
Not a day goes by without a dose of my beloved matcha, usually as a soy matcha latte. When my love for matcha, chocolate and cookies combine, it results in these delicious cookies. These have the perfect combination with a subtle hint of matcha powder and melty [vegan] chocolate chips.
Apologies for the lack of posts lately- the ups and downs of life had their role to play.
I bought some fancy quality cannelloni pasta shells awhile ago and instead of making the usual spinach and “ricotta” dish, I decided to do a spicy pinto bean sauce as well as an oatmilk bechamel. All dairy-free, seed-free and soy-free (not that there is anything wrong with them).
I’m not going to hide the fact that I am a chronic snacker. I’m also not going to hide the fact that considering it’s currently just my husband and I at home, we go through a lot of food including the mostly-healthy snacks I bake and create. These chocolate, blueberry and oat cookies are delightful raw or baked!
On this day I had lots of organic carrots that I purchased on special. On this day I was craving carrot cake. On this day I was also craving cookies. All healthy and vegan versions of course. Combine all this and I have a tray of carrot cake cookies laden with secret untraditional ingredients- because that’s how I roll….roll into bed with a belly full of cookies that is!
