  • One of my favourite breakfasts  SWEET PEAR AND COCONUT
    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition One of my favourite breakfasts - SWEET PEAR AND COCONUT QUINOA, CARAMEL NUT BUTTER AND FRESH PEARS on top for the yummy crunch factor. Kicking the day off with a fibre fuelled, nutrient dense brekky like this one sets you up for the day with good energy, helps to stabilise your appetite throughout thanks to the presence of both soluble and insoluble fibre, plant protein and healthy fats, and is easily digested. The brekky is a cracking way to help feed all the wonderful good bacteria in the gut and keep things moving down there too! If you’d like the
  • This year Ive had this absolutely wonderful human wholefoodhealing in
    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition This year I’ve had this absolutely wonderful human  @wholefoodhealing  in my life through our work together and I couldn’t feel more grateful or more aligned with someone in this space. She’s incredibly intelligent, highly motivated, compassionate and kind, with a similar zero bs approach to nutrition, health, parenting and life. We met studying nutrition almost 9/10 years ago (how on earth was it that long?!?!) and I remember thinking what a bright light she was st the time too. This year we created a series of successful, educational workshops with more to come in 2020 and we are in the
  • Happiest with haloumi also super happy when I go out
    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition Happiest with haloumi... also super happy when I go out for lunch with friends who actually ask for EXTRA haloumi with their meal. Makes me feel more normal ( @wholefoodhealing  thats you hehe). In this bowl I popped cumin and cinnamon roasted veggies with hummus (spread around the bowl - makes it even and also look kind pretty too!), some zucchini ribbons, tomatoes, avocado, kraut, herbs and chilli flakes. The veggies and haloumi were warm so it was a yummy warm salad variation which I love as a change from cold and raw. Didn't need extra dressing because the olive oil,
  • SECOND POUR TEA CHRISTMAS CAKE!!!!! My friends I have managed
    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition SECOND POUR TEA CHRISTMAS CAKE!!!!! My friends I have managed with huge willpower to stave off sharing this until December 1st so as to not completely bore you with my obsession with Christmas cake, but now the day is here and I am suuuuuuuuuuper bloody excited!!!! First the title - second pour tea - comes from my need to recycle the tea leaves in my tea pot in the morning for something else. You don't have to do this, just make enough tea for the recipe. Next the beauty of this juicy number is that you can legit have a
  • CAJUN TOFU SCRAMBLE BOWL WITH SWEET POTATO HASH Thought I
    7 days ago by brownpapernutrition CAJUN TOFU SCRAMBLE BOWL WITH SWEET POTATO HASH... Thought I would miss soft cheese, mussels and prawns the most during pregnancy, turns out I miss sprouts and juicy rockmelon more! Go figure?!?!?!?! Maybe because over the past couple of years we've transitioned our diet so much more toward plants that the shellfish and cheese factor just isn't much a thing anymore, but humble ingredients that I probably didn't recognise were as present as they were are the ones I am hanging to be able to throw into meals again! This is a delicious scrambled cajun tofu bowl with sweet potato,

NASHI WALNUT BLUE CHEESE AND ENDIVES

GF

Serves 4 as a side

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

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.

Ingredients:

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

Method:

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.
