It forces me into a creative space that absolutely LOVE and ensures there is zero food waste in our home. This ZUCCHINI PINENUT BASIL PARMESAN PASTA comes thanks to afore mentioned (bit bendy) zucchini and other random bits I found in the fridge : +leftover roasted spanish onion + leftover marinated kale (olive oil kale and sea salt) + some lemon zest from a lemon I’d squeezed into my water. + a few pinenuts left which I toasted in the

    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition Totally logical that the first celebration to follow Mother’s Day is INTERNATIONAL HUMMUS DAY personally I loooooove a hummus party, can easily turn a simple veggie plate into something super juicy I also often encourage clients to have hummus and veggie sticks as an afternoon snack. The combo is a great source of fibre, plant based protein, energy sustaining carbohydrates, calcium and healthy fats from tahini. This hummus party though - roasted broccoli, Spanish onion, cauliflower, sweet potato, coriander, dukkah, cherry tomatoes, hummus of course and totally more-ish turmeric chilli honey walnuts almonds and sunflower seeds - swipe over to

FIG AND ORANGE LOAF

GF : DF : SF

Serves 8-10

A little while back I was so in love with making ‘loaves’ I was almost convinced I would open a hole in the wall bakery style thing called “LOAF SHACK”. It didn’t happen, evidently, but maybe some day it still will? Anyway, dreams of loaf shacks opening aside, I created this recipe because I wanted a lovely winter seasonal loaf in the repertoire and this nails it. Whilst figs are available (dried that is) year round, oranges are a winter thing and best to make the most of them whilst they are fresh. As I write fresh, I realised I’ve dehydrated them and put them on top, but there are fresh oranges in the actual loaf so all good!

Ingredients:

125 ml coconut oil, melted

1/4 cup maple syrup

3 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground cardamom

1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate soda

2 teaspoons gluten free baking powder

1 1/2 cups (250g) dried figs, sliced

1 tablespoons (approx 1 orange) orange zest

1 cup (65g) shredded coconut

1 cup (145g) teff flour

2 (230g) zucchini, grated

1/2 cup (50g) walnuts, crushed

Method:

Preheat oven to 180C and line a 14x20cm loaf tin (or thereabouts) with greaseproof paper. In a large mixing bowl mix coconut oil, maple, eggs, vanilla, spices, bicarb and baking powder. Add figs, orange zest, shredded coconut, teff, zucchini, walnuts and mix again. Pour into lined loaf tin and cook 45-55 minutes in the mid to top of oven or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool 20 minutes in the tin before transferring to a rack to cool completely. Cut and serve with a cuppa.
