  • 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. It's a bit of a Weiss Bar imposter... although I think the freshness of the fruit and the fact the white creamy stripey
  • PLANT BASED Made this scrumptious plant based nourish bowl this
    17 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! I used rocket, tomato, zucchini noodles, mint and sprouts as my fresh ingredients and then made all the flavours juicy and delicious with the toppers in my fridge and pantry. 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
  • Believe I might be avoiding getting back into swing of
    7 days ago by brownpapernutrition Believe I might be avoiding getting back into swing of reality by thinking, writing and doing all the baking of cookies. Living the summer holiday dream I say! Then I thought to myself I think it’s time to consolidate all my cookie recipes and see what new ones I can make this year – and so the avoidance continues… So my lovely friends on the blog are 9 OF THE BEST HEALTHY COOKIE RECIPES for you to get mixing and baking. I’d love your comments below on new flavours and what ingredients or dietary requirements you would like to see

SPICY CARROT QUINOA KIMCHI SALAD 

GF : DF (optional): SF : V

Serves 4-6 as a side

Bit of tongue teaser if you say this one too quick, also very delicious for the tastebuds on your tongue.

I served this salad up for staff lunch the other, they loved, and to be honest I continued loving it over the weekend – it’s a keeper and eater for the days following without spoiling. Love that.

If sriracha is not on hand, use chilli and lemon in the yoghurt dressing, can also swap for a coconut yoghurt if you prefer dairy free and vegan.

Lemme know how you go cooking it!

Ingredients:

1kg carrots, sliced 5mm thick into coins

2 tablespoons olive or coconut oil, melted

1 cup quinoa, rinsed

1/2 cup peanuts, roughly chopped

200g cherry tomatoes, halved

4 asian shallots, white part only, finely sliced

1 cup mint leaves, shredded

2 teaspoons coriander seeds – or if none use fresh coriander leaf and stalk to taste

1/4 cup kimchi (or more if you wish for a spicier experience)

Sriracha yoghurt:

1 tablespoon sriracha sauce

1/2 cup natural greek yoghurt

sea salt and black pepper

To serve: lemon wedges

Method:

Preheat oven to 200C, line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper and place carrots on the tray, drizzle with oil and place in oven to cook for 40 minutes. Whilst carrots are cooking cook your quinoa until tender. (I use 1.5 cups water to 1 cup quinoa as a ratio, bring to the boil and then reduce heat and cook uncovered until the water is absorbed, then fluff with a fork). In a small bowl whisk together sriracha and yoghurt and set aside. Once carrots are cooked, sprinkle quinoa  over the tray, followed by tomatoes, mint, shallots, peanuts, coriander seeds and kimchi. Dollop or drizzle sriracha yoghurt over the top, season with sea salt and black pepper and serve with lemon wedges on the side.
