  • You knowI havent always had this amazing love affair with
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition You know…I haven’t always had this amazing love affair with food. Far from it, for the greater part of my life food and I had a terrible relationship. I starved myself, over exercised, purged any food that did go in, cooked treats for others to disguise my eating disorder, hid food, exercised in secret, avoided shared meal times, it goes on… I could live without physically chewing any food for days at time, scared of the impact on my weight, always thinking - oh people don’t notice. It didn’t really work that way though. People noticed and the more they
  • How good is pumpkin and miso  seriously?!?!?!! One of
    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition How good is pumpkin and miso - seriously?!?!?!! One of my faaaaaave flavours combos everrrrrrr. Did you know miso is a fermented food? The Japanese often start their day with miso soup to warm and energise the body and stimulate digestion. I love love love their gentle approach to the morning with food. I knowwwwww I haven't reinvented the wheel by teaming pumpkin wth a miso dressing, I have however on this occasion gone a bit crazy with our home grown cress and then tossed it all with brown rice, peanuts and sesame seeds and a big juicy serve of

  • Thoughts and words from me this holiday season as you
    13 hours ago by brownpapernutrition Thoughts and words from me... this holiday season as you catch up with people you may have not seen for a while, if their body shape has changed please refrain from making a comment on it...even if you are trying to offer them a compliment. E.g “you’ve lost weight! You look fantastic!” We cannot assume, (although society loves to) that weight loss for example = healthy. Maybe they have been on a health kick, maybe they have been seriously ill, maybe what was a health kick at the beginning of 2018 has become obsessive and unhealthy - you simply cannot

Baked Zucchini Tomato Feta with Tahini Yoghurt

It’s been a while since my last post on the blog, SO MUCH has happened and as it has my priorities haven’t been all on the bloggosphere. I’ll get back here in time, just need to focus on some big change, gain clarity and put it all into perspective.

(I’ve still been sharing lots of recipes on @brownpapernutrition though so we can stay connected so tune in there and to Insta-stories for my cooking how-to’s, nutrition and health tips!)

This week with an abundance of zucchini the fridge looking a little sad I put together this warming delicious side. It’s incredibly flavoursome, easy and oh so wholesome. Best served with delicious sourdough and a protein of your choice. You can make vegan by swapping out dairy for coconut yoghurt and adding some extra nuts in place of feta if you wish. Enjoy!

BAKED ZUCCHINI TOMATO FETA WITH TAHINI YOGHURT

Gluten free : Sugar Free : Vegetarian

Serves 4-6 as a side

10 small zucchini (approx 700g), halved lengthways

1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 small spanish onion, peeled and diced

1/2 cup parsley, leaves picked, stalks finely chopped

1/4 cup mint or dill leaves, finely chopped

3 truss tomatoes, diced

1/4 cup pistachios, roughly chopped

100g feta cheese, crumbled 

Pinch chilli flakes

1/2 lemon

Sea salt and black pepper

 

Tahini yoghurt:

1/2 cup greek or natural full fat yoghurt

2 tablespoons tahini

 

HEAT oven to 220C and line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper, lay zucchini onto tray, toss with 2 teaspoons olive oil and a pinch of salt, then arrange cut side down on tray, and bake in oven for 30 minutes. At the 20 minute mark add cut spanish onion to one end of the tray to cook lightly. You can leave raw but I prefer to take the bitterness away with a bit of time in oven.

WHISK together tahini yoghurt ingredients whilst zucchini is cooking and set aside.

BUILD your dish. Take a medium sized serving bowl, spread about 1/3 yoghurt dressing around the base, layer with half the ingredients, repeat with tahini yoghurt and ingredients, finishing with herbs and feta at the top.

SERVE by drizzling remaining olive oil and squeezing with lemon juice, season with sea salt and black pepper.
