    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition MUSHROOM PIZZAS = SCRUMPTIOUS, took about 5 minutes prep and 15 minutes in the oven, plus if you have left overs (unlikely as too yummy) you could chop them up and whack them into a pasta mmmm mmmmmm. Simple steps below for you and if you tune into my insta-stories and on the COOKING highlights reel thing I am doing heaps of kitchen how-tos for you. (Think it's my way of blogging right now as I haven't been doing much of that otherwise, other things happening - wont' be forever though!) MUSHROOMS PIZZAS 12 flat mushrooms, stalks removed 1/4 cup

    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE : I’d say treat yoself cos it's Tuesday but you don't really need to save a weekday treat for a Tuesday or wait until the weekend to blow out your healthy eating for the week either. Eat intuitively my lovely friends. Listen to your body, when you feel like something e.g treat, ice cream, chocolate, eat and enjoy it mindfully instead of starving yourself of x and then overdoing/bingeing on it when you finally give in. I have lots of different treats in our fridge and freezer, I don't feel tempted to eat them all the time,

    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition This was my plane food the other day. Maybe it’s a bit nerdy to pack a lunch box and raw snacks, but I can’t bear the thought of being caught out at the airport, on the plane or touching down and being hungry, sooooo I go prepared. Plane and airport food has come a long way yes but it ain’t gonna change to uber healthy for, well, ever most likely so if being a health nerd is my only option then I am totally down with that. Plus food, and certainly a grown woman with a byo lunch box on
  • For my little pasta lover  Jet and all the
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition For my little pasta lover - Jet and all the pasta lovers in my life aka basically everyone. This RAINBOW PASTA is too easy not to make, and the lovely quinoa rice (gluten free) rainbow pasta shapes make it all the lovelier. Beautifully balanced in macronutrients and flavour, and ace because whilst you can eat it hot it’s also absolutely yummo as a pasta salad served cold. Been a feature in lunchboxes for us too, as a change to sambos and other more picky / small food type items. HOW PRETTY IS IT THOUGH? recipe just below for you, can

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.
