  • HEALTHY MANGO MACADAMIA BAR  Its only 200 days in
    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition HEALTHY MANGO MACADAMIA BAR : It's only 200 days in a mango season - which seems like a lot, but when it's during the holiday time and all you can think about is mangoes, eating of mangoes and cooking with said mangoes the season seems to go far too quickly would you agree? So I made the most of the above mentioned seeing, eating and cooking with mangoes and whipped up a HEALTHY FROZEN MANGO MACADAMIA BAR. It's a bit of a Weiss Bar imposter... although I think the freshness of the fruit and the fact the white creamy stripey

I used rocket, tomato, zucchini noodles, mint and sprouts as my fresh ingredients and then made all the flavours juicy and delicious with the toppers in my fridge and pantry.

NASHI WALNUT BLUE CHEESE AND ENDIVES

If you were a fly on the wall in our kitchen today you’d hear the big questions asked like… “What 5 foods would you take to an island if you had to live on them forever?” Our head chef, responded with cheese as her number one, but all cheese captured under that one, not just a single type of cheese of course.

Yep we are answering life impacting questions today ladies and gents!

Cheese amongst our divine grazing boards are just the start of some of our favourite cheese dishes to create. But, if a weekend grazing board is just a little too far away still then have a taste of this delicious NASHI WALNUT BLUE CHEESE AND ENDIVE SALAD during the week with a portion of protein to accompany.

Nashi are in season throughout the winter and make the perfect crunch in a salad next to the rich flavours of blue cheese. You don’t need much of the blue, but make sure you do include it, as it truly is the hero ingredient of the dish.

NASHI WALNUT BLUE CHEESE AND ENDIVE 

Serves 4 as a side

Gluten Free

2 nashi pears, cored and sliced thin

100g blue cheese, crumbled

1 bunch curly endive

1/4 cup walnuts, roughly chopped or broken

sea salt and black pepper

Quick pickled red onion:

1 small (140g) red onion, peeled and finely sliced

1/3 cup apple cider vinegar

1 1/2 cups water

good pinch sea salt

Dressing:

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon honey

2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

Make the quick pickled onion by combining apple cider vinegar, water and sea salt in a medium bowl or jar, then add red onion and allow to pickle for 5-10 minutes. Whilst onion is pickling whisk together ingredients for dressing. When ready to serve, drain the onion from the pickling brine, and toss together endive, nashi, onion and dressing in a large bowl. Transfer to serving platter, sprinkle dollops of blue cheese and walnuts around the salad, season with sea salt and black pepper and serve.
