  • RAW CHOC WALNUT BROWNIE  Weve made these raw brownies
    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition RAW CHOC WALNUT BROWNIE : We've made these raw brownies so many times now but they never get old - seriously does a good chocolate recipe actually ever get old?!?! Thought today sharing the recipe (just below) with you would be a delicious way to jump over the middle of the week together yes? Oh, we also added wattleseed to this batch and they were insane. Wattleseed is an aussie bush native with quite a nutty kind of coffee flavour and it's yummoo with the choc flavours in this raw treat. RAW CHOC WALNUT BROWNIE GF : DF : RSF
  • ZATAR BAKED EGGPLANT GREENS AND BUTTER BEAN PUREE  Seriously
    16 hours ago by brownpapernutrition ZATAR BAKED EGGPLANT, GREENS AND BUTTER BEAN PUREE : Seriously cannot get over just how delicious this recipe is!!!! All my favourite ingredients and the za'tar flavours with the creamy butter bean puree are next level - butter beans add plant based protein to this dish. Remember protein comes from a variety of sources, and legumes are an incredible source of plant based amino acids - the building blocks for complete proteins. Enjoy folks!

PUMPKIN MUNG BEAN AND DUKKAH SALAD

Scrumptious creation in the kitchen today inspired by left over roast pumpkin pieces and marinated kale. Been wanting to use more pulses in salads to amp up the protein and so far lentils and chickpeas have been sweet, but then I came across these mung beans the other day and couldn’t wait to start using them! Think any roast veggies leftover on hand would work well here, and plenty of fresh herbs too.

Out of curiosity and to ensure there are balanced macro nutrients in the meals we producing especially more of the vegetarian meals I did a quick addition of the protein – these are close estimates.

PROTEIN FACTOIDS:

  1. Mung beans in this salad contain 15g protein per 50g. I’ve used 1 cup which is approx 250g = 75g protein.
  2. Tahini generally contains approximately 2.6g protein per tablespoon, there’s about 4 tablespoons in this recipe making protein content coming from tahini = 10.4g
  3. If you add in about 1/4 cup almonds to the mix = approx 5g protein
  4. Seeds – let’s average them at about 1/4 cup altogether = approx 5g protein

Add all together we have abouuuut 95g protein in this salad and it’s all veggies. Pretty great result would you agree?

If you’re not convinced plant based protein is enough here then of course add your choice – fish, chicken or red meat etc. Would be rockin with some kind of feta in there too I think !

I kind feel this just tastes like health in a bowl… Enjoy x
