It’s hard to believe that I used to literally fear the thought of having a mouthful of pasta let alone a plate of it and boy, am I glad I snapped myself out of it! Carbohydrates… any food in general, should not be feared however in this current day and age where there is always a [food] trend to partake, it’s hard to know what is worthwhile.
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!
I am usually a creature of habit when it comes to my breakfasts, often sticking with peanut butter on sprouted toast, chia pudding of some sort or the occasional oats. This recipe uses buckwheat flour which I mill out of activated buckwheat groats as well as a plantbased version of buttermilk. Served with blueberry and maple syrup swirled coconut yoghurt, this dish was the perfect Sunday breakfast in front of the fireplace with a warm matcha latte.
We have all seen the vegan variations of potato-bake on our social media feeds however they usually use a large quantity of cashews, sunflower seeds or tofu. Don’t get me wrong, there is absolutely nothing wrong with these ingredients however it is nice to have an alternate variation. This recipe is nut-free, seed-free and soy-free however remains high in protein thanks to the use of cannelloni beans. As always, I use organic potatoes as conventionally-grown ones are heavily sprayed with pesticides.
