Vegan roasted veg with lemon tahini sauce

This vegan roasted veg with lemon tahini sauce is simply delicious. It is vegan, unprocessed and a great source of antioxidants. The combination of these veggies give you an abundance of vitamin C, K, B6, fibre, omega-3, protein and magnesium.The broccoli is also an alkalising food which is great for conditions such as auto immune conditions, RA, CFS, ME and even cancer prevention. The garlic is anti viral and antibacterial..great for boosting the immune system at this time of year…..and on top of all this goodness it tastes heavenly!

INGREDIENTS
1 cauliflower, cut into florets
2 tablespoons tahini
1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil tsp. olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 cloves garlic
pinch of himalayan salt and ground black pepper (adjust to your taste)

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 230c . Melt the 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and toss the cauliflower and broccoli in the oil, add the salt and pepper to season then pop in the oven for about 10 – 15 mins depending on how much “bite ” you want on your cauli / broccoli.

Heat the other 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil in a pan and then add in the garlic (minced) to cook for a couple of mins before slowly adding the tahini , lemon and a little water to allow the sauce to adjust to the desired consistency. Simmer for a couple of mins before removing and stir well before drizzling over the cauliflower and broccoli.

Serve + enjoy = That’s it!
ps – you can add some fresh herbs like parsley or coriander to garnish or add some toasted pine nuts or sesame seeds. Be adventurous and try a few options to suit you. I garnished mine here with parsley and chilli.

Homemade Raw Naked Bars

I love naked bars, they have no added nasties in them and just simple natural ingredients. So i thought , lets have a go at making some homemade raw naked bars.
These homemade raw naked bars are vegan with no butters, eggs etc added so everyone can enjoy!
They took me less than 10 mins to make , and if you prefer rather than making raw naked bars you could roll into balls and make raw naked bombs instead!!
They are delicious!
My photography skills are lacking as you may notice from my other recipes too….hey ho…keeping it real!

INGREDIENTS
2 Cups Cashew Nuts (soak for 1-2 hours before hand and then rinse through)
2 Cups Mejool Dates (rinse through)
1 tablespoon unpasturised honey
1 teaspoon madagascan vanilla extract
1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
I added 4 drops of wild orange oil but you can add anything else you prefer
Mix it up and try pumpkin seeds, cranberries, raisins, coconut flakes or different nuts (the important thing is to keep the ratio of dried fruit and nuts as 1:1)

DIRECTIONS
Whack it all into a processor or blender and blitz to your desired consistency.Line a dish with cling film and spread and firm it to the base.
Leave to set for about an hour in the fridge or freeze then cut into strips. They will keep in the fridge for about 5 days or keep frozen and take out as you want to eat.

Serve + enjoy = That’s it!

Healthy Zucchini Chrisps

image image

 

Who would have known just how delicious a plain old zucchini would be as a tasty snack. These lovely veg are really low in calories and a good source of potassium ( to reduce blood pressure ) and also vitamin C which is great for immune support and cell regeneration .

I really enjoyed making these and found shaving the strips really therapeutic.
They did seem to take a long time to cook ( or maybe that was the impatient part of me who just couldn’t wait to scoff these delightful and healthy treats !).
You can change the seasoning to suit you, but here’s what I used.

INGREDIENTS

1 zucchini
olive oil
Himalayan salt
Ground black pepper
Apple cider vinegar

DIRECTIONS

Heat oven to 220c
Use a peeler to shave strips of zucchini or if you prefer oval Chrisps them slice wafer thin.
Mix olive oil salt, pepper, and some vinegar in a small bowl and then coat the strips or slices.
Use the grill as a baking tray (so this the bottom of the Chrisps do not stay soggy or stick and burn ).
Cook for about 40 mins , checking as some will crisp faster than others.
You only get a serving for one out of a large zucchini. They taste so great I’m just about to make some more!

Serve + enjoy = That’s it!

Cauliflower Gluten and Grain Free Pizza

image

This recipe is just amazing!

The picture does not do it justice , but it is Devine!
It is super healthy and wheat and grain free too. The cauliflower becomes the pizza base so you are taking so many less calories but adding loads of nutrients in ! What’s not to love about this lovely little meal. You really feel like you are having a lovely treat.

Cauliflower is a really good source of fibre, it is loaded with vitamin C (antioxidant , collagen and neural support of cells ) , K ( bone and blood support) , B6 ( liver and blood support ) and a good source of omega 3 (heart health) and folates ( excellent for central nervous system health ) .

INGREDIENTS
Rapeseed oil
1 cauliflower
2 eggs
Feta cheese
Himayayan salt
Ground black pepper
Tomato paste or blended fresh tomatoes to make the sauce.
Handful of picollino or cherry tomatoes, sliced in quarters
Slices of onion
Handful of kale
1 cloves garlic crushed or grated
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon basil

DIRECTIONS
Heat oven to 180c Line a baking sheet or oven dish with baking paper and grease with the rapeseed oil.
Grate the cauliflower or whizz with a blender.
Then Mix in the eggs a bit of feta cheese , salt, pepper,garlic  and herbs.
Once combined, pat into a round on the oiled baking paper then bake until golden and the base is dried out. Turn and bake the underside. ( approx 15 mins each side)
I found if the base was too large then it broke up when I turned it so doing smaller individual pizza bases makes it easier to flip the base and cook both sides.
Top the pizza with the sauce, chopped tomatoes, onion, kale and more feta. Sprinkle with chilli flakes and Bake in the oven until melted for approx 5 mins.

Serve + enjoy = That’s it!

Vanilla and blueberry chia seed pud

image

I love love love chia seeds.

These tiny seeds are a powerhouse of energy. They are packed full of protein , fibre, high in omega 3 , calcium and then a good source of magnesium a much overlooked mineral that most of us are deficient in . They are an antioxidant superfood and they are so filling and great for helping you lose weight.

 

So here’s how I make this lovely pud, you can change the ingredients and it is even great for breakfast. It really sets you up for the day. If you want to make a big batch then it keeps for up to 5 days in the fridge.

INGREDIENTS
1/2 cup of chia seeds to 2 1/2 cups of almond milk or coconut milk. I use coconut milk it’s delicious and subtly sweet.
1 teaspoon of local honey.
1 Vanilla pod.
Handful of blueberries.

DIRECTIONS
Place the chia seeds and honey into a bowl and then scrape the beans out of the vanilla pod by first slicing it in half and add to the bowl.
Pour the milk over the seeds and give it a stir.
Pop it in the fridge and give it another mix after an hour then leave to set overnight.
The chia seeds will gradually expand and absorb the liquid.
Spoon into a bowl and add blueberries to the top to garnish.

Serve + enjoy = That’s it!

Tuna bread

image

 

When i need some healthy comfort food, this is my favourite feel good choice.

Eggs are a rich source of B2 which builds the blood and B12 which is great for the nervous system and mood …maybe this is why I find it so comforting.
Tuna is packed with protein and also packed with selenium , B12, B6 and B3. Selenium gets a good rep. For its antioxidant effect on the body and it can therefore help the body fight off diseases.
All that and yummy too.

So here’s how I make it.
INGREDIENTS
1 tin of tuna in spring water.
2 or 3 eggs depending on how hungry I am.
Add spices or herbs to suit you . 1 teaspoon of each .
For this I added turmeric (as it is amazing for its antioxidant properties ) , parsley ( rich in vitamin a,c, k,e , iron and fibre and chilli flakes.

DIRECTIONS
Pre heat oven to 200c
Drain the tuna and then Chuck all the ingredients into a silicone mould , I use a rectangular cake mould.
Mix up until the egg is mixed well into the rest of the mix.
Cook for approx 16-20mins.
Serve up with a side salad.

Serve + enjoy = That’s it!
