  • EGGPLANT MUNG BEAN CURRY Making this one because Ive not
    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition EGGPLANT MUNG BEAN CURRY: Making this one because I’ve not been able to stop thinking about it but also to store in the freezer for post partum meals which are easy to pull, defrost, nourish and restore. The eggplant gives a really substantial element to this curry, complimented well by mung beans. Mung beans are some of my favourites for curries, they have a delicious flavour, but also deliver significant amounts of fibre, plant based amino acids for protein, iron and interestingly a dense amount of folate too. Folate (Vitamin B9) during pregnancy is required to help reduce the risk

I use an apple cider vinegar base for it and it's literally ready in 20 minutes for whichever meal I like and then keeps in the fridge a few weeks... if it lasts. Best way to pimp up a meal, adds valuable prebiotic fibres and quercetin to the diet and sans raw onion breath too - win! The (no) meatballs are made with quinoa, beans and mushies and absolutely heaven. Make please! Popped the full recipe on  @bodyandsoul_au  beautiful humans. J xo

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.
