  • Not gonna lie  definitely missing my SMOKY TROUT AND
    13 hours ago by brownpapernutrition Not gonna lie - definitely missing my SMOKY TROUT AND SPROUT BOWLS! Two things I can't really eat during pregnancy. Avocado and tomato yes, and whilst I loooooove these ingredients they are much yummier with their friends. Sprouts are a nutrient POWERHOUSE - the sprouting process helps to increase nutrient levels and they come from some of nature's finest foods too - chickpeas, mung beans (think plant proteins) and broccoli as a start. It's not recommended to eat them during pregnancy however (despite their amazing nutrition) because of risk of bacterial growth. Sooooo Imma just gonna wait another 12 weeks
  • PEANUT BUTTER STRAWBERRY SLICE RECIPE Id planned for it to
    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition PEANUT BUTTER STRAWBERRY SLICE RECIPE... I'd planned for it to be something else, but I think I went into a PB food coma and it became slice instead Popped a banana in there as part of the sweetener because it looked brown and I was low on coconut sugar but you can swap it and up the coco sugar or maple if you like. I like the banana effect - more fibre and potassium too that way.  @picspeanutbutter  sent me a mega jar the other day  #waytomyheart  and I'm still deciding whether I share it or hide it at the
  • I havent been so active on social media this week
    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition I haven’t been so active on social media this week, to be honest I’ve felt really paralysed by what is happening with the fires in our country. I’ve watched, listened, grieved with those affected, it’s so devastating I have felt completely unsure how to communicate about it. I’ve sat in fear. This isn’t just a reflection of what we have done in the past, this dire situation is a look into what our future is if we don’t do, think, be, act more. I’ve felt frightened for those out there in the middle of it, fighting it, beautiful Australian wildlife

    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition “Delicious in the scrimmis” (see video of beautiful Mia  @bondibubs  a couple of posts ago) actually apparently means “delicious and nutritious” ☺️ bless My delicious in the scrimmis bowl here is coconut yoghurt, peanut butter, banana, fresh pecans from my friend  @annabellehickson  farm , mango, granola, blueberries and hemp seeds.

I am packing a heap of groceries today to send to some families who have been
  • Feel like Im going back to square one I keep
    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition "Feel like I'm going back to square one" I keep hearing myself say in response to people asking how I feel about our bubba. But actually no, i’m not, I have many more lessons than when i started motherhood with Jet almost 10 years ago. So I thought I would share 5 of them with you... 1. TAKE THE TIME YOU NEED. I rushed a lot with Jet. Mostly with healing, I pay the price for it now. I went back to exercise WAY TOO SOON convinced a) my body would bounce back with being young b) I had to

Favourite vegetarian lasagna of all time

Made this cracker with my standard random throw ins approach then realised it was truly rad and had to be shared, made it again and well here it is!!!!

I think what I looooove about this one that’s a bit different to my usual vego lasagne is that, because on the first round of making it I didn’t have stacks of lentils so I swapped some for kidney beans and then to beef up the sauce I threw some pumpkin in the oven, so the end result became random but epic sweet, savoury, salty, juicy deliciousness all at once!!!!!

Lasagnes aren’t really an everyday meal for us, our fam would probably have them once a month max, but when they do happen there’s some serious lovin that go into them.

MY FAVOURITE VEGETARIAN LASAGNA OF ALL TIME 

Serves 8

Vegetarian

800g piece jap pumpkin, skin removed and diced approx 2-3cm

1/4 cup extra vrigin olive oil

1 large (250g) brown onion, peeled and finely chopped

4 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped

2 carrots (200g), trimmed and diced

1 small  (150g) red capsicum, seeds removed and diced

1 bunch basil, leaves picked and sliced, stalks finely chopped

1x 400g tin kidney beans, rinsed and drained

1x 400g tin lentils, rinsed and drained

2 tablespoons tomato paste

2x 400g tin chopped tomatoes

400ml water

1 teaspoon dry oregano

400g (approx 12-14) lasagne sheets, preferably wholegrain or spelt

500g smooth ricotta

300g shredded mozarella

1/4 cup full cream milk

Heat oven to 200C and line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper. Spread pumpkin pieces over the tray, drizzle with about 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, season with sea salt, toss, then place in oven to cook for 30 minutes. Whilst pumpkin is cooking, heat a large saucepan on medium heat, add remaining extra virgin olive oil, onion, garlic and carrots, cover with lid and cook 6-8 minutes or until vegetables are soft, add capsicum, basil stalks and cook a further 2-3 minutes, then add sliced basil leaves, beans, lentils, tomato paste, chopped tomatoes, water and oregano. Stir all ingredients together then cook with lid off for 20 minutes. The pumpkin should be cooked by this time, so remove from oven, lower the oven heat to 180C and add the  pumpkin pieces to the sauce and stir. Scoop a few spoonfuls of sauce over the base of the lasagna dish, layer 3-4 lasagne sheets over the top, then spoon half the sauce over the sheets. Layer another 3-4 sheets, the spread half the ricotta and half the mozzarella over the top and repeat with lasagna sheets, sauce, lasagna sheets and finishing with the ricotta mozzarella on the top. Sprinkle with a little extra oregano over the top if you have it handy. Place in oven to bake for 45-55 minutes or until lovely golden colour and bubbly on top. Let the lasagna set in the dish for 5 minutes or so then slice and serve with a big crunchy green salad.
