  • GREEN PEA SPINACH AND MUNG BEAN CURRY  Aiming this
    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition GREEN PEA SPINACH AND MUNG BEAN CURRY : Aiming this year to do a series of recipes that use some ingredients from pantry and freezer only. Quick, easy, super tasty, not a cheat’s variation per se, but no excuses meals because the ingredients are there, ready and waiting for you in the freezer and pantry – you know what I’m saying? For the days you can’t be bothered to go to the shops, or have come from travel (my inspiration moment for this series), or maybe just want to budget your diet more, you know where I am coming from

  • HEALTHY MANGO MACADAMIA BAR  Its only 200 days in
    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition HEALTHY MANGO MACADAMIA BAR : It's only 200 days in a mango season - which seems like a lot, but when it's during the holiday time and all you can think about is mangoes, eating of mangoes and cooking with said mangoes the season seems to go far too quickly would you agree? So I made the most of the above mentioned seeing, eating and cooking with mangoes and whipped up a HEALTHY FROZEN MANGO MACADAMIA BAR.

    19 hours ago by brownpapernutrition PLANT BASED: Made this scrumptious plant based nourish bowl this week and it's all I want to eat right now again!

If you have some staples there to bring flavour into the meal then you can create deliciousness from the most basic ingredients on hand. My fun little taste boosters included: + kimchi + dukkah + olives + hemp butter - just made using hemp seeds and olive oil much

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.
