  • Basic but beautiful quality ingredients and yummy big flavours in
    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition Basic but beautiful quality ingredients and yummy big flavours in my TERIYAKI ROAST VEGGIE BOWL. Roasted a combo of pumpkin, capsicum, eggplant, zucchini and carrot, then added the home made teriyaki sauce - recipe below - and popped back in oven to caramelise it (kinda - not sure of clever cooking word!) for about ten minutes. Served up with some boiled free range eggies for protein and delishhhh avocado for healthy fats - BALANCE! Will write full recipe soon! So stoked at the fresh food coming in our weekly box from  @thegoodbunch  TERIYAKI SAUCE: 4 TBSP TAMARI 1 TBSP HONEY
  • Think its time we crank Moroccan flavours a bit more
    12 hours ago by brownpapernutrition Think it's time we crank Moroccan flavours a bit more folks - it's leading into that time of year for yummy warming spices and the combos are heavenly - turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, cumin, cori, chilli, bit of clove. I tend to buy a premade spice mix to use but you could make it up yourself if you have them all on hand, just ready made obviously makes whipping together a yummy tray bake like this bad boy a little faster! If you're new to eating more  #plantbased  then spices are going to be your best mate, go buy a few

    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition BAKED ZUCCHINI CRISPY CHICKPEAS HUMMUS HERBS AND DUKKAH : Legit lived on this number for about 4 days recently.

Delicious way to pack plenty of greens, fibre, plant protein and healthy fats into one. Recipe now up on the blog! Happy Sunday y'all! Jacq  #plantbasedrecipes 
  • Im a big believer that food can be your medicine
    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition I’m a big believer that food can be your medicine and that foods such as these are vital to support your health at this time. Those foods rich in Vitamin C, zinc, beta glucans, Vitamin D and other immune boosting nutrients. However, sometimes it can be tricky to pack it all in, which is why I have teamed up with  @melrosehealth  to talk about what we can do to boost our nutrient intake in the body and have our immune system firing for the cooler months ahead of us. Incorporating a powdered Vitamin C with all of the above nutrients

ROAST EGGPLANT AND PICKLE SALAD

GF : DF : SF : V

Pickle me this! We’ve managed to up your daily dose of one of our favourite health boosting pantry ingredients – apple cider vinegar – by making a couple quick pickles to contrast the flavour in this delicious salad. Don’t be overwhelmed by the idea of pickling your veggies it is seriously one of the easiest things to do and such a great way to use up bits and pieces that you can then pop in other dishes here and there to make them a bit different, not to mention a rad way to up the nutrient ante!

Ingredients:

1 large eggplant, cut into chunks

4 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons Japanese pickled ginger

1/4 cup cucumber pickle (recipe below)

1/4 cup red onion pickle (recipe below)

3 tablespoons peanuts, roughly chopped

1 tablespoon sesame seeds

1/3 cup coriander leaves picked, chop the stalks and add if desired+

Dressing :

Lemon wedges and tamari or sriracha (optional) 

Cucumber pickle:

1 cucumber, finely sliced

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

1/2 cup water

Pickled red onion:   

½ red onion, finely sliced

¼ cup apple cider vinegar

½ cup water

Method:

Preheat oven to 200C and line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper. Place eggplant on tray, drizzle with olive oil and a pinch of sea salt, toss, then pop in oven to cook for 40 minutes or until golden. Make the pickles while the eggplant is cooking.

Red onion pickle: Combine all ingredients in a bowl, cover and set aside to pickle. Any unused pickle can be stored the fridge for 4 weeks.

Cucumber pickle: Combine all ingredients in a bowl, cover and set aside to pickle.

When ready to serve, arrange the eggplant on a large serving platter, top with the pickles, sprinkle with peanuts, sesame seeds and coriander leaves, season with some sea salt and pepper and serve as is or add a big squeeze of lemon and a drizzle of tamari or sriracha.

+We didn’t have coriander the day we made this, you see parsley in the shot to show the green, and whilst parsley was yummy the coriander would be ace so use whichever both would be delicious.
