  • Im a big believer that food can be your medicine
    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition I’m a big believer that food can be your medicine and that foods such as these are vital to support your health at this time. Those foods rich in Vitamin C, zinc, beta glucans, Vitamin D and other immune boosting nutrients. However, sometimes it can be tricky to pack it all in, which is why I have teamed up with  @melrosehealth  to talk about what we can do to boost our nutrient intake in the body and have our immune system firing for the cooler months ahead of us. Incorporating a powdered Vitamin C with all of the above nutrients

    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition BAKED ZUCCHINI CRISPY CHICKPEAS HUMMUS HERBS AND DUKKAH : Legit lived on this number for about 4 days recently.

  • Basic but beautiful quality ingredients and yummy big flavours in
    20 hours ago by brownpapernutrition Basic but beautiful quality ingredients and yummy big flavours in my TERIYAKI ROAST VEGGIE BOWL. Roasted a combo of pumpkin, capsicum, eggplant, zucchini and carrot, then added the home made teriyaki sauce - recipe below - and popped back in oven to caramelise it (kinda - not sure of clever cooking word!) for about ten minutes. Served up with some boiled free range eggies for protein and delishhhh avocado for healthy fats - BALANCE! Will write full recipe soon! So stoked at the fresh food coming in our weekly box from  @thegoodbunch  TERIYAKI SAUCE: 4 TBSP TAMARI 1 TBSP HONEY

Harissa spiced veggie bowl

As we move into the autumn and winter here in Sydney so I’m exploring a little with warming spices in kitchen and this week HARISSA is the feature. Harissa originated in the Middle East and North Africa and with its savoury spicy flavour gives a real punch to a dish.

You can make your own from chilli, garlic, various spices and tomato paste (I don’t have that recipe though I’m afraid), or buy on shelf a harissa paste or ground spice mix. For ease of storage I’ve got the ground spice on hand and you only need a small amount to give an incredible lift to the dish.

It’s delicious used in a number of ways, my go-to’s include:

  • mixed with natural yoghurt, lemon and a touch of olive oil for a super accompaniment to grilled protein such as fish or as a dressing for salads
  • blended with olive oil and honey and drizzled across vegetables for roasting
  • adding to slow cooker recipes abundant with veggies
  • as a marinade for meats if that’s your food choice or in the below recipe as I’ve done with tofu

When you buy a new spice try to find 3 ways to use it, (more if you like of course!) then you always have some lovely flavours and micronutrients infused into your dish.


Serves 2

Gluten free : Dairy Free : Vegan

250g firm organic tofu

300g carrots, sliced into sticks

1 bunch broccolini, trimmed

1 teaspoon ground harissa spice

2 teaspoon honey

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 cup baby spinach leaves

1/2 cup sauerkraut

2 tomatoes, sliced

1/4 cup hummus

1/4 cup toasted nuts and seeds / raw as desired

1 tablespoon dukkah

handful coriander leaves

Optional: Flat bread to serve

Preheat oven to 180C and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Place tofu, carrots and broccolini on tray, drizzle with olive oil and honey, sprinkle with harissa, toss then pop in the oven to cook for 20-25 minutes. Whilst veggies and tofu are cooking, build your bowl by laying the baby spinach leaves first, followed by tomatoes, flat bread, sauerkraut and hummus. Serve cooked harissa spiced vegetables and tofu on the top, sprinkle with dukkah, season with sea salt and black pepper, add fresh coriander leaves and serve.
