Vegan roasted veg with lemon tahini sauce

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!
