  • CHOC GINGER COOKIES  Inspiration for this one from my
    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition CHOC GINGER COOKIES : Inspiration for this one from my lovely friend Leo, whom I’ve known for about 25 years – amazing how time passes so quickly! She wandered into our kitchen in Bondi the other week to pick up some food and we were talking about delicious things to cook and I asked her what she might like to snack on and chocolate ginger flavours immediately popped up. I thought of a few ways we could do it, but the stand out for my gorgeous friend who is known for her love of a cuppa, was a yummy yet

    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition WINTER HARVEST BOARD: Delicious flavours and colours coming together in this harvest board. What speaks the loudest though is the delicious fibre, prebiotic and probiotic ingredients in the meal that work within your gut to build beautiful intestinal flora, ready to absorb the nutrition from your food and deliver it to your body. That’s why meals like these are my absolute favourite… I’ve noted the prebiotic and probiotic rich foods on the ingredient list for you. The recipe is now up on the blog -enjoy my friends!

SWEET POTATO AND KALE DHAL

GF:DF:SF:V:VG

This recipe is based on and inspired by that of my wonderful friend Jody Vassallo from her book Beautiful Food.

Serves 4

 

1 1/4 cups split mung beans or red lentils

1 tablespoon finely grated ginger

1 teaspoon ground turmeric

1 teaspoon black mustard seeds

1 teaspoon garam masala, plus extra for sprinkling

1 small dried red chilli

1 bay leaf

6 curry leaves

1 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 tablespoon coconut oil

100g cherry tomatoes, halved

2 tablespoons ghee

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 cup chopped roasted sweet potato (Jody uses pumpkin)

100g kale leaves, stalks removed and roughly torn (Jody uses spinach)

basmati rice and lemon wedges ,to serve

 

Put the split mung beans or lentils, ginger, spices, chilli, bay leaf, curry leaves, salt, oil and cherry tomatoes in a large saucecpan, add 3 1/2 cups water and bring to the boil over medium heat.

Reduce heat to low and simmer for 20minutes, until the beans or lentils are just soft. Don’t overcook them, you don’t want mushy.

Remove pan from heat, stir in ghee, lemon juice, sweet potato or pumpkin pieces, sprinkle with extra garam masala, cover with a lid and allow to stand for 5 minutes.

Serve with basmati rice, lemon wedges and an extra sprinkle of garam masala. I added a few coriander leaves too but that’s up to you!
