  • Happy Monday friends!!!! I made this platter for my family
    2 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
    6 days 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
    6 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.

NOURISHING CHICKEN SOUP

WORDS + RECIPE : JODY VASSALLO 

“This is my talented friend Kelly and this books wonderful designer favourite recipe ever, I first made it for her a couple of years ago when she was poorly. She hasn’t stopped mentioning it since then, should have seen her joy when I sent her home with the whole pot after we photography it. I believe wholeheartedly that chicken soup is medicine, too many cultures around the world have a version of it for it not to be. It calms the body and soothes the worried mind, there is magic in the broth and nourishes as no other food can. Simmer it until the chicken falls away from the bone on its own, cook it for hours topping up the water as you. I never both removing all of the bones just the big ones my tongs can find, I like to chew on the bones as I find them because the marrow inside them is also very healing.”

1 organic chicken

1 cinnamon stick

3 star anise

4 cloves

6 black peppercorns

2 tablespoons coriander roots

6 spring onions

1 bulb garlic, halved

5 cm piece ginger, sliced

3 celery stalks, chopped

3 carrots, chopped

250 ml shaoxing (Chinese rice wine), optional

1 tablespoon tamari

300 g cauliflower, cut into florets

1 bunch broccoli, cut into florets

Put the chicken into a pan, add the spices, spring onions, garlic, ginger, celery, carrot, shaoxing, 4 litres water and cook over a medium heat for 3 hours or until the chicken is very soft and falling away from the bones. You may need to add more water during this time, just keep the chicken covered. Remove any large bones and discard.

Add the tamari and cauliflower and cook for 15 minutes or until the cauliflower is soft. Add the broccolini and cook 5 minutes or until soft.

Serves 6-8
