    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition Naming this dish -  #lovelyleftovers  ...I truly believe some of my best creations come from the ‘scraps’ in the fridge. It forces me into a creative space that absolutely LOVE and ensures there is zero food waste in our home. This ZUCCHINI PINENUT BASIL PARMESAN PASTA comes thanks to afore mentioned (bit bendy) zucchini and other random bits I found in the fridge : +leftover roasted spanish onion + leftover marinated kale (olive oil kale and sea salt) + some lemon zest from a lemon I’d squeezed into my water. + a few pinenuts left which I toasted in the

    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition Totally logical that the first celebration to follow Mother’s Day is INTERNATIONAL HUMMUS DAY personally I loooooove a hummus party, can easily turn a simple veggie plate into something super juicy I also often encourage clients to have hummus and veggie sticks as an afternoon snack. The combo is a great source of fibre, plant based protein, energy sustaining carbohydrates, calcium and healthy fats from tahini. This hummus party though - roasted broccoli, Spanish onion, cauliflower, sweet potato, coriander, dukkah, cherry tomatoes, hummus of course and totally more-ish turmeric chilli honey walnuts almonds and sunflower seeds - swipe over to

Batch cooking ideas and my simple red lentil dhal recipe

It’s coming into the cooler months of the year in my home town which means a few more warming dinners and dhal is one of my favourites. I tend to make up a batch of this when I can, we eat some, and I freeze the rest in portions which makes life THAT MUCH EASIER...

CARROT AND KALE DHAL

This is delicious when fresh but after day one it will be best kept in the fridge up to 1 week or sliced and stored in the freezer up to 3 weeks. Toasting the loaf brings out the flavours.

Vegan mushroom pineapple stir fry

Juicy sweet but savoury and a little bit spicy – Mushroom Pineapple Stir Fry – inspired by our travels to Sri Lanka (and more of these recipes coming too…).

Spicy bean, corn and coconut salad with turmeric spiced nuts

HOW TO WIN AT MEAL PREP

One of the first comments / excuses I hear from people when it comes to getting organised about their nutrition is that they don’t have time. Most of us are time poor at some stage, so whilst I totally understand the busy-ness that is life, I still truly believe that allocating a small amount of...
