  • Our fridge isnt always stocked to the brim in fact
    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition Our fridge isn’t always stocked to the brim, in fact quite the opposite, I LOVE to let it run low so I can get creative with what is in there, team the ingredients up with what I have in the pantry and make meals I wouldn’t usually have thought of. However, I probably wouldn’t be able to make as many of those meals without a few key ingredients which make their permanent home in the fridge – check out my fridge team on the blog today and the how’s and why’s of their importance for nutritious meals in our home.
  • Happy Monday friends!!!! I made this platter for my family
    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition Happy Monday friends!!!! I made this platter for my family yesterday as a starter before a big lunch to celebrate some birthdays and it went down a treat, especially for me as Saturday I spent feeling just outright wretched with zero desire to do anything but rest - which I did and by Sunday morning I was back on top and ready to eat! Amazing that old REST chestnut isn't it? It's amazing how we sometimes resist it but how restorative is it??!?! Back to food... This platter appealed to both the kiddies and adults so if you're planning a

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.
