  • Our fridge isnt always stocked to the brim in fact
    2 weeks 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
    1 week 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
  • Diving into Mondayyyyyyy like Ok so my brekky isnt this
    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition Diving into Mondayyyyyyy like.... Ok so my brekky isn't this today unfortunately, HOWEVER before you pass this off as a fruit salad, I wanted to break down PROTEIN in this meal for you. The common misconception is that we need a big chunky protein source (most identify as eggs, bacon, chicken, fish, beef or protein powder) in order to have 'protein' in a meal. This isn't actually true. Proteins are comprised of essential amino acids. Essential amino acids are those amino acids the body cannot synthesise and need to be obtained from the diet. Plant foods contain essential amino acids,
  • RAW LAMINGTONS PLANT BASED  NUT FREE  To be
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition RAW LAMINGTONS (PLANT BASED / NUT FREE) : To be honest…when I started making these I had full intention of making a healthy variation on a Bounty Bar, but then I completely forgot to add in a step and the chocolate spread into the coconut and thennnnn as it turned out these taste SO MUCH like LAMINGTONS, in their raw, whole seeds (cause no nuts in this one!) and delicious date and cacao-y form. I've popped the recipe on the blog lovely peeps... link in bio for you! PS. I still plan to make a bounty bar but for now…ENJOY!!!!!

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.
