  • Happy Monday friends!!!! I made this platter for my family
    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition 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 and ready to eat! Amazing that old REST chestnut isn't it? It's amazing how we sometimes resist it but how restorative is it??!?! Back to food... This platter appealed to both the kiddies and adults so if you're planning a

  • So Ive just convinced Jet that brussel sprouts are IN
    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition So I've just convinced Jet that brussel sprouts are IN FACT AWESOME. He, like many, were utterly disgusted by the miniature cabbbage like veg untillllllllll lots of olive oil and sea salt and a crispy bake came into the mix and now- the whole family are slowly morphing into brussel sprouts hehehehehehe... try it yes!!! Here's what to do: Lots (and I mean lots, not just a measly spray) of olive oil and a generous pinch of sea salt on sliced brussels, is the trick then into the oven at 200C for about 10-15 minutes depending on how much crispy
  • Our fridge isnt always stocked to the brim in fact
    7 days ago by brownpapernutrition Our fridge isn’t always stocked to the brim, in fact quite the opposite, I LOVE to let it run low so I can get creative with what is in there, team the ingredients up with what I have in the pantry and make meals I wouldn’t usually have thought of. However, I probably wouldn’t be able to make as many of those meals without a few key ingredients which make their permanent home in the fridge – check out my fridge team on the blog today and the how’s and why’s of their importance for nutritious meals in our home.
    20 hours ago by brownpapernutrition RAW LAMINGTONS (PLANT BASED / NUT FREE) : To be honest…when I started making these I had full intention of making a healthy variation on a Bounty Bar, but then I completely forgot to add in a step and the chocolate spread into the coconut and thennnnn as it turned out these taste SO MUCH like LAMINGTONS, in their raw, whole seeds (cause no nuts in this one!) and delicious date and cacao-y form. I've popped the recipe on the blog lovely peeps... link in bio for you! PS. I still plan to make a bounty bar but for now…ENJOY!!!!!

Healthy Vegetarian Stuffed Capsicums

Been making these on repeat for the past few weeks for clients and catering events so I thought time to share the recipe with you! A great one for Christmas lunch spread, yes for the vegetarians, but maybe for the meat lovers to split their meat love with some extra veggies too? Just sayin you know?


Serves 4

Gluten free : Sugar Free : Vegetarian

3/4 cup (100g) quinoa, rinsed

1 cup (100g) buckwheat, rinsed

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 medium (180g) spanish onion, peeled and finely diced

1 (120g) carrot, grated

100g celery sticks, diced

1/4 small bunch parsley, leaves and stems finely chopped

1/2 cup (75g) currants

1/2 cup (85g) sunflower seeds

200g feta, crumbled

4 medium to large red capsicums, halved from the stem downward, deseeded

sea salt and black pepper

Heat oven to 180C and line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper.

Cook quinoa and buckwheat in separate saucepans filled with boiling water until tender, drain and set aside

In a large frypan heat olive oil, then add spanish onion, carrot, celery and parsley and sauce on medium heat for 5-6 minutes.

Add currants, sunflower seeds and cooked quinoa and buckwheat and toss gently, then remove from heat.

Drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil over the mix, crumble feta through, then spoon into the capsicum shells.

Place on baking tray and into the oven to cook for 20 minutes. The capsicum should be tender but firm enough to hold the mix together as a shell.

Serve with a big leafy green salad.
