  • ROAST CAULIFLOWER WITH CAJUN CHICKPEAS  Really quite stoked on
    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition ROAST CAULIFLOWER WITH CAJUN CHICKPEAS : Really quite stoked on this meal... Roasted some cauliflower steaks in extra virgin olive oil and sea salt, and whilst they were in the oven I made the cajun chickpeas to go with. Whisked together coyo and hummus (keeping it  #plantbased ) and once they were all cooked, layered the base of the plate with the humm-yoghurt, then topped with the cauliflower, tomatoes, cajun chickpeas, herbs and some hemp seeds. Such a cracker of a meal!!! Plenty of plant based proteins. If you jump onto my insta-stories I'm showing you how to make the chickpeas

Healthy platters on a budget

Happy Monday friends!!!! I made this platter for my family yesterday as a starter before a big lunch to celebrate some birthdays and it went down a treat, especially for me as Saturday I spent feeling just outright wretched with zero desire to do anything but rest – which I did and by Sunday morning I was back on top. Amazing that old REST chestnut isn’t it? It’s amazing how we sometimes resist it but how restorative is it??!?!
 
Back to the food…
 
This platter appealed to both the kiddies and adults so if you’re planning a get together look at doing the combination of kiddy and adult food can be a fun change, instead of separating the two, and that way we all engage with it together and kids can try and learn a few new foods in the process. Plus you’re not buying a huge number of ingredients only to see half go to waste.
 
You can see pretty easily what’s on it but just in case you’re curious for more of the details:
– beetroot hummus / regular hummus / green hummus (I just blended baby spinach and coriander into the hummus blend to make it green) topped with some dukkah
– cheddar cheese
– pears and apples
– bocconcini
– seed snaps, lavosh and blue corn / hemp corn chips (oh my god so yummy)
– cashews and walnuts
– sicilian olives (kids love these!)
– cherry tomatoes and capsicum sticks
– polski ogorki aka gherkins – because I’m a child of the 80s and they were so popular and I’m bringing them back (thanks @bondibubswholefoods for instigating that obsession!)
 
I want to mention too – this platter is really economical.
There aren’t many indulgent and expensive cheeses.
I made one hummus then just whacked in a few things here and there to make them different.
I’ve used fruit and vegetables to mix things up instead of all crackers (which can add up in price, especially if they’re not eaten and are left to go stale) and included some of my homemade seed crackers (which I batch cook and keep in an airtight jar for weeks on end).
So you can see, you can make beautiful, decadent looking but nourishing food on a budget.
Throwing a do or a cheese platter and nibbles for drinks, doesn’t have to be expensive to be healthy which I think can often happen for many people – it doesn’t have to be the case though.
 
I hope that’s given you some extra reasons to take this week by the balls so you can excitedley bring in next weekend with a healthy platter of deliciousness by your side!
 
Lots of love, Jacq xo
