  • Hi friends please excuse my radio silence as weve launched
    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition Hi friends, please excuse my radio silence as we've launched into 2020 I had a little break from social media to refresh and have honestly just felt a bit speechless with the bush fire devastation in our country so haven't been posting, rather I've quietly plugged away with $ donations to different charities, donated supplies to any of the collections possible and have been supporting those close to us, in particular my family, caught in the fires. My aunty has had to evacuate her home, it's situated right in the middle of the two southern fires, as a family we
  • simplification Lots of New Year resolution chats happening this time
    3 weeks ago by brownpapernutrition  #simplification  Lots of New Year resolution chats happening this time of year and before the anxiety of wtf shall I resolve to do and an epic long list appears before you I just wanted to drop this thought which is - it’s ok to resolve to do less. Doing less and simplifying things doesn’t make you any less. In fact, if anything, just doing a few less things but doing those chosen things with INTENTION will mean you are doing more - because of the QUALITY of your attention to it. I scaled back on SO MUCH in 2019 and

    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition Mum sent me home with some chocolate melts she didn’t know what to do with ... I had two options, 1/ eat them straight up, as they delicious 2/ be kind and get my bake on even though temp and humidity feels like 45 deg C today. Option 2 evidently won, the melts didn’t melt and I am not one bit worried about it. I’ve done plenty of melting today for everyone This ALMOND BROWNIE recipe is a quick variation from one I’ve got on the blog and it’s nek level... especially with cheeky chocolate care of the my lil
  • I didnt want to share too much of our excitement
    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition I didn’t want to share too much of our excitement for this little person whilst there is so much devastation in our country, but after speaking to a few friends and being reminded that with all darkness we must also have light to look forward to I thought maybe a bit of bump might be ok to share here too. Can’t wait to meet this tiny human... only about 6 weeks to go. Love.  #34weekspregnant   @svendsenfitnesshealth

    3 weeks ago by brownpapernutrition INDIAN SPICE SAUSAGE ROLLS WITH RAITA : Most of my sausage roll creations come about from leftover veggies, a handful of herbs and a well fuelled spice rack. I don’t ever recall going out and physically purchasing anything for them and that I think is the best principle when it comes to these things – especially when there’s some cheeky pastry to wrap around it like a present to your tastebuds. Having oats, eggs and sunflower seeds on hand helps here but no doubt you could do with breadcrumbs and whatever other nuts or seeds you might have for some

Pumpkin Pies With Chickpea Coconut Pastry

Makes 2 individual pies

Pastry:
¾ cup besan (chickpea flour)
3-4tbsp coconut flour
½ tsp sea salt
2tbsp olive oil
¼ cup water
+ You will need baking weights or some rice or dry legumes to dry bake the pastry.

Filling:
1 leek, white part only, finely sliced
1tsp coconut or grapeseed oil
2 cups cooked pumpkin pieces

Option 1 Filling Additions: (to make 2 pies)
½ cup quark
1-2tsp harissa paste, or to desired spicy taste
½ tsp lemon rind and a lemon wedges to serve
Herbs of choice: chives and coriander work well, or whatever is on hand for garnish

Option 2 Filling Additions: (to make 2 pies)
1 cup feta cheese
1tsp lemon thyme sprigs
2tbsp smoky tomato relish or chutney

Pastry Method:

Preheat oven to 180C.

In a food processor, combine flours with salt and blitz briefly, before slowly pouring in liquids as the blade is moving.

It should form a sticky dough. You may need to increase the amount of coconut flour slightly if the dough feels too wet.

Remove from food processor, roll dough in two pieces and place each on two large separate pieces of baking paper. Cut the paper so that it can be rolled out to a size to fit your pastry molds/tins, and can be double over the top ready to roll. I used 11cm diameter springform tins.

Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough evenly between the two sheets of baking paper. Use your pastry molds to gauge the size and thickness required. Approx 50mm thickness is appropriate.

Leave both sheets of baking paper on the pastry and shape into your molds/tins, followed by pastry weights and place in oven for 15 minutes to blind bake.

Remove from oven and fill.

Filling:

You can use the filling to do two of the same pies or mix it up and make two different ones, they’re both as easy as pie! (Sorry, but that had to happen)

Saute your leeks in coconut oil in a small fry pan over medium heat for approximately 4-5min.

Remove baking weights and the layer of baking paper holding them from the pastry.

Spread either filling additionals you choose into the base, then sprinkle evenly with the sautéed leeks.

Top with pumpkin pieces and place in the oven for a further 30min.

Allow to cool for 5min before lifting the pies from their molds/tins and removing all baking paper.

Serve with herbs to garnish or a dollop of smoky tomato relish.
