    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition For my little pasta lover - Jet and all the pasta lovers in my life aka basically everyone. This RAINBOW PASTA is too easy not to make, and the lovely quinoa rice (gluten free) rainbow pasta shapes make it all the lovelier. Beautifully balanced in macronutrients and flavour, and ace because whilst you can eat it hot it’s also absolutely yummo as a pasta salad served cold. Been a feature in lunchboxes for us too, as a change to sambos and other more picky / small food type items. HOW PRETTY IS IT THOUGH? recipe just below for you, can

    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE : I’d say treat yoself cos it's Tuesday but you don't really need to save a weekday treat for a Tuesday or wait until the weekend to blow out your healthy eating for the week either. Eat intuitively my lovely friends. Listen to your body, when you feel like something e.g treat, ice cream, chocolate, eat and enjoy it mindfully instead of starving yourself of x and then overdoing/bingeing on it when you finally give in. I have lots of different treats in our fridge and freezer, I don't feel tempted to eat them all the time,

    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition This was my plane food the other day. Maybe it’s a bit nerdy to pack a lunch box and raw snacks, but I can’t bear the thought of being caught out at the airport, on the plane or touching down and being hungry, sooooo I go prepared. Plane and airport food has come a long way yes but it ain’t gonna change to uber healthy for, well, ever most likely so if being a health nerd is my only option then I am totally down with that. Plus food, and certainly a grown woman with a byo lunch box on

    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition MUSHROOM PIZZAS = SCRUMPTIOUS, took about 5 minutes prep and 15 minutes in the oven, plus if you have left overs (unlikely as too yummy) you could chop them up and whack them into a pasta mmmm mmmmmm. Simple steps below for you and if you tune into my insta-stories and on the COOKING highlights reel thing I am doing heaps of kitchen how-tos for you. (Think it's my way of blogging right now as I haven't been doing much of that otherwise, other things happening - wont' be forever though!) MUSHROOMS PIZZAS 12 flat mushrooms, stalks removed 1/4 cup

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.
